Goehmert reminds me of a Jackson family joke by a Comedian (forget who) who said that Latoya was known as "the crazy one" and the question was how crazy would you have to be in the Jackson family to get that label.

I think the analogy with Goehmert and the Tea Party is obvious.
 
2014-06-11 02:49:48 PM  
So Mr.  Goehmert when are you planning to walk away from your money andprivileged position to follow Jesus and share the good news?

So Karl Rove would be Joe Jackson - the abusive father living out his dreams of power through his children
Sarah Palin would obviously be Janet - the daughter who for a moment got out from under her fathers thumb and became a superstar but without his controlling influence flamed out as it became apparent how crazy she was
Bill OReilly - would be Marlon the older brother frustrated that his younger brother has the spotlight
Sean Hannity would be Michael
Dubya - would be Tito obviously

"Do you believe in sharing the good news that will keep people from going to hell, consistent with the Christian beliefs?" Gohmert asked

 You're concerned that people will go to hell when they die, yet you don't really care if they live in hell now?

That's some Selective Christianity, by gum.

"No, not a set of ideas," Gohmert insisted. "Either you believe as a Christian that Jesus is the way, the truth, or life, or you don't."

Yeah! You either believe simple-minded, easily digested claptrap or you go to Hell. It's that simple.

Lynn responded that he wouldn't agree with Gohmert's "construction of what hell is like or why one gets there." When Gohmert pressed him to say whether he believed people "would go to hell if they do not believe Jesus is the way," Lynn again answered that he thinks failing to ascribe to a certain set of Christian beliefs doesn't necessarily doom a person to hell.
"No, not a set of ideas," Gohmert insisted. "Either you believe as a Christian that Jesus is the way, the truth, or life, or you don't."

This is a perfect example of the arrogance and ignorance of the GOP. They love to seriously debate experts in their fields about topics concerning their fields and claim that the experts are wrong, when they have not studied these fields at all and always fall back on God for their arguments. First it was they were debating and fighting economist on issues of economics, then it was scientist on issues of science in their fields, now they have come full circle and are debating theologians in issues of faith and falling back on God as the reason they are right and the person who studied it is wrong.

I mainly feel sorry for Goehmert at this point.  It's just that it's so obvious that he thinks he's smart and clever.  It's like a retarded kid in school talking down to someone for what they think it's stupid, when it's just a retard being a retard.

Right. How about we make a law that says if you don't believe exactly the same things that Louie believes, you have to go to hell? If we can get that out of the way, we can start on the really important things, like what specifically does Louie believe that requires a consignment to hell? I suppose we can start with all 10 Commandments, or maybe just the top six or seven, but should we include every single verse in Leviticus? Some of that stuff is downright weird. And do you have to go all the way to hell, or can you loll around in purgatory, or nirvana, or some other intermediate plane for a while? And suppose hell isn't all that bad, that it's all just been bad PR; can we substitute a perpetual Justin-Miley concert for not-so-bad hell? And then there's that pesky Constitution - we'll have to have appropriate legal processes that must be followed before we can authorize a governmental condemnation to any sort of fiery abyss, which of course requires a new department to be established so that there will be forms to fill out. I'm imagining something along the lines of Homeland Security. The Office of Eternal Damnation - nah, too straightforward - the Divine Comedic Administration or something like that. That should probably be a cabinet-level position, don't you think? Let's start off with a budget of, oh, around $200 million and see how quick they run through that.

A missionary goes out into the bush and encounters a tribe that has had little contact with the outside world. He spends a day telling them about Jesus' life and death, and how anyone who believes in Jesus will not die but will instead have eternal life.

At the end of the day, the chief tells the missionary, "Thank you for sharing this with us, but I grieve for my father who died without hearing the good news."

The missionary says, "No, my friend, be assured that because he did not have a chance to know about Jesus, he would be saved."

So the chief says, "Then why the fark did you tell US?"

BarefootInTheFark: I always assumed when someone said that there was a village in Texas missing its idiot, they were referring to W.

Now I know they really meant this D-bag.


Don't think so small... Texas is a big state. Lots of villages.

How about  now?

We're going to start feeding Christians to the lions?

I thought it was a reference to pride, I don't get it either.

'Lions repeating' didn't really make any sense, either.


I didn't have a picture of a bunny with a pancake on its head.

fusillade762: "No, not a set of ideas," Gohmert insisted. "Either you believe as a Christian that Jesus is the way, the truth, or life, or you don't."

What in CHOCOLATE COVERED F*CK DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH GOVERNMENT?!?


The witness' credibility as a witness hinged on being a "faith leader"; Gohmert was pointing out that he didn't necessarily speak for as broad a cross-section of Christianity as his version conflicted with Gohmert's own.

It was pretty much a relevant point in the context of a hearing on "religious freedom", although it's a bit weird that the representative of the state was arguing the  against side.

Close2TheEdge: Kibbler: Please, Republican douchebag, proceed.  Say it loud.  Make sure everyone hears.

You say this like it makes a difference.  Here's a news flash.  It doesn't.  Crap like this gets lost in the daily blur of news and opinion.  Either you think the GOP is full of nutcases already or you don't.  Every retarded statement that comes out of this guy's mouth will not change that.

A large segment of the population will continue to support them no matter what he says.


You talk as if everyone, literally everyone, already knows about Gohmert. You vastly underestimate the apathy and ignorance of the American public.  I believe that, although there is a substantial percentage of people who will cheer Gohmert's idiocy, it's a decided minority, in the range of 20%.  So 80% are more likely to start reconsidering the GOP if they hear crap like this.  But they need to hear it first.

Your math doesn't allow for the percentage of people for whom Gohmert just reinforces what they already thought about the GOP. For them (or "us," speaking for myself and not a few others, I suspect) there's nothing to reconsider unless you mean that they can always go from "negative" to "more negative."

Texans often forget that Texas is part of the United States, and therefore fail to realize that if they send their idiots to potato all over D.C. so that they don't potato back home, they'll still be potatoing by extension all over Texas.

/when did "potato" become a verb?

The Good Reverend was interviewed on MSNBC yesterday.   His disdain for Gohmert and his juvenile understanding of both Faith and the Constitution is palpable:

Goehmert and people who think like him are the reason why Christianity has such a bad name.  However, this covers a lot of people who call themselves Christian.  But overall , most are morally wrong in their interpretation.  This is because they are total assholes about it and are cruel because of it.
