Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) recently spoke at Liberty University to push his anti-LGBT agenda to the only mass audience who would listen. It was really a bunch of useless rhetoric as he compared the treatment of anti-gay bigots to Jewish persecution during World War II.

He also used his famous “four gay men on an island” analogy to explain why he thinks homosexuality is bad.

“How about if we take four heterosexual couples, and put them on an island where they have everything they need to live and exist, and we take four couples of just men and put them on an island where they have all they need to survive,” he said. “And then let’s take four couples of just women and put them on an island, and then let’s come back in 100 years and see which one nature favors.”
