    Louie Gohmert: Aurora Shootings Result Of 'Ongoing Attacks On Judeo-Christian Beliefs'

    WASHINGTON -- Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) said Friday that the shootings that took place in an Aurora, Colo. movie theater hours earlier were a result of "ongoing attacks on Judeo-Christian beliefs" and questioned why nobody else in the theater had a gun to take down the shooter.

    During a radio interview on The Heritage Foundation's "Istook Live!" show, Gohmert was asked why he believes such senseless acts of violence take place. Gohmert responded by talking about the weakening of Christian values in the country.

    "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 terror like this takes place," Gohmert said.

    Ernest Istook, the host of the show and a former Oklahoma congressman, jumped in to clarify that nobody knows the motivation of the alleged Aurora gunman.

    Gohmert also said the tragedy could have been lessened if someone else in the movie theater had been carrying a gun and took down the lone shooter. Istook noted that Colorado laws allow people to carry concealed guns.

    At least you had the good sense to include the fact this was 1 rep, and not the opinion of the entire GOP.

    I have a very low opinion of anyone who stands over the pile of still warm corpses of men, women, and children to peddle their brand of political wares.

    Sickening.

    So? Are we supposed to think something is strange when you and your pals believe that every Christian is nuts? Carry on.

    Not directly, but these kinds of attacks are a result of a general breakdown of societal function and a lack of morality. Which themselves are the result of attacks on Judeo Chistian beliefs. The shooter was a shooter because he believes himself to be to Joker.

    I knew that people (likely, some members of Congress as well as RW pundits) would eventually say those two things. The only thing that surprises me (two things, actually) is that it was said on the very day of the tragedy, and that it was the same person who said both things.
