In the eyes of Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), sexual orientation and the workplace appear to be separate entities.
ThinkProgress caught up with the congressman on Wednesday, asking him where he stands on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).
Gohmert claimed that he was unaware of the bill, so the interviewer filled him in on how the legislation would bar workplace discrimination toward sexual orientation or gender identity.
"Who wants to go talking about sexual orientation when they’re working?" Gohmert reacted. "Good grief."
Gohmert has also been a vocal opponent of gay marriage. During the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference in March, he said that marriage equality would put the United States "on the road to the dust bin of history."
