File this under the dumbest thing I’ve heard all day. Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert took to the House floor recently to warn of a danger you didn’t even know about. GAY SPACE COLONIES!
What the what??
That’s right. Apparently, he’s concerned that one day NASA is going to send humanity into space. And not just any old humanity… GAY HUMANITY!
“I really wonder how many people in this body who had the ultimate power to decide whether the human race would go forward or not… Whether it was an asteroid coming, something that would end humanity on earth, as dinosaurs were ended at one time… Ok we’ve got 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. If you could decide what 40 people you put on the spacecraft that would save humanity, how many of those would be same sex couples? 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, 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?”
You’d think he’d be excited about sending all the gays to space. Heck, I’VE BEEN BEGGING TO GO TO SPACE FOR YEARS!
SEND ME, Louie!0
