Imagine the public outrage if an elected official in the federal government had gone to a political rally and falsely mocked Jews, Sikhs or Hindus for holding beliefs of his own fabrication.

No attack on non-believers, no matter how filthy or public, is considered beyond the pale. Welcome to the most hated minority group in America.

How do you feel about that?

-----------------------------------------------------------------

"Mocking non-believers for failing to grasp the logic behind the existence of God, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) cited an exchange with the late Texas entertainer Bob Murphey to disprove atheism during a prayer rally in Washington, D.C. Wednesday.

"“Bob Murphey used to say, ‘You know, I feel so bad for atheists, I do,'” Gohmert recalled at "Celebrate America,” a three-week-long revival event. “‘Think about it, no matter how smart they think they are, an atheist has to admit that he believes the equation: nobody plus nothing equals everything.’”

""How embarrassing for an intellectual to have to say 'Yeah, I believe that,'" Gohmert said, citing Murphey. "Nobody plus nothing equals everything."

"Gohmert delivered his final point to a chorus of applause as he concluded, "You couldn't get everything unless there was something that was the creator of everything and that's the Lord we know.” Gohmert did not elaborate on how he leapt from something to nothing to everything to the "Lord we know" rather than to, say, a Flying Spaghetti Monster. Gohmert also neglected to explain who would have created the Lord he knows, or whether the Lord created Himself before He existed."

Did Louie Gohmert graduate pre-school or did the administrator not allow him to repeat it a fourth time?

 

I'm guessing he was home schooled to protect him from learning all those facts.. y'know, like science, math... all that other real worlf stuff

Poor Mr. Gohmert, his momma hated him so much she named him Louie.  The last intelligent people in Texas were all killed in the Alamo, I kid of course forensics studies strongly suggest there may never have been an intelligent strain of homosapien in Texas. :)
