Louie Gohmert freaks out: NASA wouldn’t send Matt Damon to space if he were gay!

Published

on

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) argued on the House floor Thursday that the strive for LGBT rights is a mistake because NASA would never send a gay couple into space (except for Sally Ride). We’d, especially, never send a gay person into space to colonize Mars like in the Academy Award-nominated film “The Martian” with Matt Damon.

In Gohmert’s mind, lawmakers were being forced to decide “whether humanity would go forward or not” in the event we had a “Deep Impact” scenario with an asteroid heading toward earth or even “Interstellar” where we’re dying off by killing our food supply.

Our only survival options would be to throw some people into a “spaceship that can go, as Matt Damon did in the movie, plant a colony somewhere, we can have humans survive this terrible disaster about to befall,” Right Wing Watch reported.

Gohmert created a fantasy scenario: if we had 40 people to choose from for a spacecraft that would save humanity, how many of them would be homosexuals? Though, Gohmert didn’t seem to consider how many of them would be botanists like Damon’s character.

“You’re wanting to save humankind for posterity, basically a modern-day Noah, you have that ability to be a modern day Noah, you can preserve life,” he continued. “How many same-sex couples would you take from the animal kingdom and from humans to put on a spacecraft to perpetuate humanity and the wildlife kingdom?”

According to Gohmert’s logic, the only justification for marriage is for producing children. The only reason for people to have sex seems to be for procreation. Thanks to LGBT people, he claims there is an attack on the “natural order” as well as religious freedom. “We don’t have much longer to go,” he said.

The world is apparently going to end. Thankfully, Matt Damon is straight. Check out the video below:

"And now he has gone beyond that," O'Donnell noted. "Now the president is sayin, 'I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot someone and I cannot be prosecuted for that crime. Or any crime.'"
