Louie Gohmert: Atheists Should Encourage Worship to Protect the Country
WASHINGTON — If atheists want their country to be free and safe, they should encourage people to worship God, Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert argued Thursday during a House floor speech.
Gohmert, who has a penchant for tweaking people who do not believe in God, was delivering a speech about the lack of attention given to Christians who are persecuted around the world.
Although he also declared that Christianity is the most persecuted religion in the world, as an aside he argued that only nations that turned away from the Judeo-Christian god have ceased to exist.
“No country has ever fallen while it was truly honoring the god of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,” Gohmert said.
