Interesting Quote: Louie Gohmert

“It seems like the only group that it is politically correct to be intolerant of are Christians, who have such a profound effect on the founding of this country, including about a third of the signers of the Declaration of Independence being ordained ministers. If this administration is going to continue to tolerate this kind of intolerance, they are going to lose members of the military that cannot serve if their first amendment rights aren’t going to be protected with regard to religion."

I'm amazed. I keep thinking Gohmert can't say anything stupider, and then he proves me wrong every time he opens his pie hole.

Siddown, Louie.

It's default for Christians to claim persecuted status. After all, they're only echoing what their pseudo-God told them.

But I'm happy to see religion getting less and less deference in government over time. It's that point that they really are trying to reclaim.
