I wouldn't trust this guy to park my Hyundai, you think i'm gonna take his advise on my eternal salvation?

yeah right, tell you what Goehmert, why don't you go fark yourself, quit politics and get into preaching, stop wasting everyone's time playing a righteous man on T.V. & go fark yourself.

If anything, guys like this hurt more than help religion.

For this guy, everything

i'd like to thank Gohmert, for providing more sound bytes about why we need the separation of church and state more than ever in this country.

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.
 
2014-06-11 08:09:17 PM  
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?"

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.

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."
