Rep. Louie Gohmert Says Pro-Gay Marriage Judges Need 'Basic Plumbing Lessons' (Audio)

During an appearance at the Heritage Foundation on Tuesday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) slammed judges in Utah and Oklahoma who ruled against bans on gay marriage.

Rep. Gohmert started out by saying the US Supreme Court wants the states to decide for themselves about gay marriage, but then slammed pro-gay marriage rulings in Utah and Oklahoma.

"Our court didn't see any biological evidence to support marriage being between a man and a woman," said Rep. Gohmert, according to Roll Call (audio below).

“They need some basic plumbing lessons,” added Rep. Gohmert. “For one omnipotent, omniscious, ubiquitous federal judge who is wise beyond his education to say to make such a declaration about the law, I think, requires revisiting by each state and compliance with the U.S. Supreme Court.”

According to RawStory.com, Rep. Gohmert (R-Texas), Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) were taking questions at the 2014 Heritage Conversations with Conservatives event.

Rep. Bachmann was angry that President Obama didn't enforce the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which was struck down by the US Supreme Court, noted NPR in 2013.

“The legacy of Barack Obama will be of the establishment of lawlessness in the United States,” claimed Rep. Bachmann.

Rep. King attacked the president’s uncle, Onyango “Omar” Obama, “I think it would be very good for the American people to see drunken uncle Omar testify before the Judiciary Committee and maybe even Auntie Onyango, who lived on welfare illegally in the United States for a good number of years as well. It looks like if you’re an Obama friend, you’re exempt from the law. And that’s something this Congress should examine.”
