On Wednesday, Louie Gohmert offered up comedy gold in a speech on the Obama administration’s policies with regard to Israel. Gohmert, in his Teabilly wisdom, offered up the Bible as an advisor on relations with Israel. Since the Bible is “accurate” and many of the biblical prophecies have been “fulfilled,” then obviously we should be best buddies with Israel! It makes perfect sense!
In fact, Gohmert somehow believes the words emanating from his mouth so strongly, that he challenges the Obama administration to find a Bible verse to prove him wrong!
“There are many who have been aware of Scripture, and it has often been a guide in our relations with Israel. Some of us believe that the Bible is accurate. Certainly, so many prophesies have been fulfilled, and if that is true, this administration, unless they can find a verse that accurately says that those who betray Israel will be blessed, then this country is being dug in a deeper hole by this administration, and its betrayals of Israel’s trust and Israel’s friendship.”
Gohmert cited Genesis 12, offering up the theory that by “betraying” Israel, the United States will bring upon its own destruction.
Witness the crazy for yourself!
