East Texas’ own Congressvarmint Louie Gohmert is just a circus looking for a big top.
Here’s his latest.
Louie thinks that because corporations can be charged with crimes, they should also be able to have a religion. And, apparently, children, feelings, a fast car, and dinner at 6:00.
Louie was on the electric radio with rightwing nut Tony Perkins.
“Well, Tony, if you can as a corporation through your directors and officers, form the intent to commit a crime, then you can certainly, through your officers and directors form an intent to have religious beliefs.”
And Louie does not care what religion that might be, just so long it’s white people religion.
“And if every one of your directors and officers has the same exact religious beliefs, whether your Amish and have formed a corporation or any other religious group — Quakers or whatever the group is — certainly a corporation can, if they can have intent as the Justice Department repeatedly proves in court, then they can certainly have religious beliefs.”
Amish and Quakers? Seriously, Louie? Do you know diddle squat about Amish, Louie? No, you do not.
I guess he thinks Quaker Oats is a religious company. Yeah, that’s some religious oatmeal corporation.
(John made this a week ago and I have been patiently sitting on it, knowing that it won’t be long until Louie gives me a reason to put it on the website.)
Thanks to Brian for the heads up. And, of course, to John.
