This is Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), an elected member of Congress speaking on the floor of the House of Representatives. Evidently, this is how those sent to Congress to represent us spend their time.
Rep. Gohmert's lesson is simple: what once was, should always be. Because early Americans made some mistakes with regard to mixing religion and government, we should embrace them and continue to make them. America is a Christian nation because people who lived over 200 years ago were afflicted by religious delusion.
Rep. Gohmert, couldn't the same argument be made about slavery? Couldn't some jackass get up on the floor and read a speech from another former member of Congress in praise of slavery? And wouldn't that mean that America is a nation of slaves? The same could be said for all sorts of other mistakes.
Happy American Jesus Day!
Oh, and if you are bored today or just a sucker for punishment, here's even more of Rep. Gohmert performing his official duties by continuing this same speech.
