Louie Gohmert: Judges who support same-sex marriage need ‘basic plumbing lessons’

Republican Reps. Louie Gohmert (TX), Steve King (IA) and Michele Bachmann (MN) teamed up at a Heritage panel on Wednesday to claim — among other things — that President Barack Obama’s legacy would be “lawlessness” in the United States, that Obamacare was like Snapchap and judges who support same-sex marriage need “basic plumbing lessons.”

At the 2014 Heritage Conversations with Conservatives event, the three lawmakers joined “free market and liberty-minded members of Congress” to take questions from bloggers, reporters and voters.

One questioner asked the participants to comment on a federal judge’s ruling this week that an Oklahoma law banning same-sex marriage was unconstitutional.


Gohmert pointed out that some courts had found that there was no biological evidence that marriage should be limited to a man and a woman.

“They need some basic plumbing lessons,” he said. “For one omnipotent, omniscious, ubiquitous federal judge who is wise beyond his education to say — to make such a declaration about the law, I think, requires revisiting by each state and compliance with the U.S. Supreme Court.”

Bachmann asserted that refusing to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) on the grounds that it was unconstitutional was an “example of the lawlessness of this president.”

“The legacy of Barack Obama will be of the establishment of lawlessness in the United States,” she declared, adding that Obama and judges who struck down same-sex marriage bans were like Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, “who all of the sudden declared that his edicts were not appealable to a court.”

Bachmann also blasted the president’s health care reform law as the “health care version of Snapchat. It’s like, now you see it, now you don’t.”

And the retiring Minnesota lawmaker said she knew exactly what Snapchat was because she used it every day.


“I’m on Snapchat,” she volunteered. “That’s how I communicate with all my kids every day.”

During questions about immigration, King found time to discuss the president’s uncle, Onyango “Omar” Obama, who was spared deportation back to Kenya after a DUI arrest.

“I think it would be very good for the American people to see drunken uncle Omar testify before the Judiciary Committee,” King opined. “And maybe even Auntie Onyango, who lived on welfare illegally in the United States for a good number of years as well. It looks like if you’re an Obama friend, you’re exempt from the law. And that’s something this Congress should examine.”

The problem I have with this argument is that bc the government issues marriage licenses and so many rights are marriage dependent as it pertains to the legal relationship between the couple it has nothing to do with plumbing. That argument may pertain to religious organizations who don't have to sanction same-sex marriage but until the government gets out of the marriage business, people are entitled to equal protection under the law. Unless there is an overwhelming state interest to decide otherwise and there really isn't

Everyone has the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This is endowed by ther creator. Why limit the pursuit of happiness simply because someone is a homosexual? How does allowing them to marry affect you?

 because this is just one more sin that  christians have to explain to our kids or grandkids. it is hard to explain that this is wrong and sinful to little children when they are hearing how great it is everywhere else. i hate sin and i would never condone sin of any kind.not that i have no sin we all sin if we say we don't we are liars and the truth is not in us. we deserve better than this.

It is a sin according to your faith. Law should not be based on that. I am not sure why t would be hard to explain love to your children.
