US congressman wants to trap gay couples on island to prove ‘what nature says is the preferred marriage’

Forget the debates and legal rulings.

US Congressman Louie Gohmert, a Republican from Texas, thinks he has come up with a way to settle the marriage equality issue once and for all.

He says: ‘We could take four heterosexual couples, married, and put them on an island where they have everything they need to sustain life. Then take four all-male couples and put them on an island with all they need to sustain life, take four couples of women, married, and put them on an island, and let’s come back in 100 to 200 years and see which one nature says is the preferred marriage.’

Gohmert made his remarks last week at a conference of the college chapter of Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum in Washington DC.

At the same event, Gohmert called for the impeachment of Supreme Court justices Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Elena Kagan because they officiated same-sex marriage ceremonies before the high court’s historic ruling last month that made gay marriage legal nationwide.

‘I think they ought to be impeached, I think ought to be removed, and until Congress shows that we do have some say in the Constitution over the courts the abuses are just going to get worse,’ he said.
