Congressman Wants to Banish Gays to an Island

A photo of a congressman who wants to banish gays to an island.

Rep. Louie Gohmert, a republican congressman gave a speech last week that called for the banishment of gay men, lesbians and bisexuals.After we banish gays to an island, he believes that after 200 years (give or take) nature will reveal “the preferred marriage.” Although his solution is not as barbaric as ISIS‘s resolution, it’s equally absurd.

Gohmert, who seems like a total asshat, wants to conduct a study around “the preferred marriage.” He hypothesizes that eventually the gay islanders will die out, leaving only the straight couples that engaged in “the preferred marriage.” He suggests:

“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.”

Where’s the logic in his “banish gays” hypothesis? Wouldn’t the “heterosexual” island  be over run with gays eventually? Maybe, he needs to think this experiment through a little more.
