Rep. Louie Gohmert has made a case for preserving the future of humanity, in a head-scratching way.

In a speech before the House on Thursday the Texas representative asked what would happen if humans were faced with a dire situation and needed to preserve the human race.

He wondered how many gay people would be on a spaceship “that can go, as Matt Damon did in the movie, plant a colony somewhere.”

“If you could decide what 40 people you put on the spacecraft that would save humanity, how many of those would be same-sex couples?” he asked.

“You’re wanting to save humankind for posterity, basically a modern-day Noah. You have that ability to be a modern-day Noah, you can preserve life,” Gohmert said. “How many same-sex couples would you take from the animal kingdom and from humans to put on the spacecraft to perpetuate humanity and the wildlife kingdom?”

His point, of course, is valid, and will most certainly be misunderstood.

The truth is if one wanted to populate a new planet the best bet would probably be to send straight college students with copious amounts of liquor.
