Wingnut GOP Rep Blames CO Shooting On Attacks On Religious Freedom
"You know what really gets me, as a Christian, is to see the ongoing attacks on Judeo-Christian beliefs, and then some senseless crazy act of a derelict takes place. People say where was God in all of this? We've threatened high school graduation participations, if they use God's name, they're going to be jailed. I mean that kind of stuff. Where was God? What have we done with God? We don't want him around. I kind of like his protective hand being present." - GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert, who says that if a member of the audience had been armed, the massacre could be been lessened. Colorado law allows people to carry concealed firearms.
RELATED: Last year Gohmert introduced a bill to allow members of Congress to carry firearms onto the floor of the U.S. House. Gohmert has previously claimed that "demonic forces" are behind Obama's health care reform plan. He's also compared Obama to Hitler and claimed that terrorists are having babies in the the United States so that their kids can grow up to become suicide bombers.
