Gohmert: Gay Rights Intolerant

It’s been a while since we paid attention to the ridiculousness that is Louie Gohmert. And though the Gohmert drought has probably been good for everyone, the Texas Rep. has made some cringeworthy comments that we just can’t ignore. Gohmert praised Mississippi’s enactment of a “right-to-discriminate” law as “a wonderful example of real freedom.” He also slammed gay rights advocates as intolerant. “You’ve seen it first hand, there is nobody more tolerant in this country than those who that are screaming for tolerance,” he told Family Research Council president Tony Perkins on his Washington Watch radio show, Thursday. “Christians are not tolerant but whoa, goodness these people that have their leftist agenda that are so intolerant so thanks for having the courage to stand up.”
