Corey Booker Hounds Mike Pompeo For Agreeing With Christianity On Gay Sex

Sen. Corey Booker (D-N.J.) raked the CIA director over the coals for his beliefs on same-sex marriage

“Pompeo is far from alone in his views of government affirmation for homosexual attraction. Most Christians believe this, as did Hillary Clinton — even during her own tenure as secretary of State. But that didn’t stop Booker from berating Pompeo in a self-important filibuster during which the man who’s supposed to be answering questions barely got two words in.”

 

During Mike Pompeo’s Thursday confirmation hearing for secretary of state, Sen. Corey Booker (D-N.J.) raked the CIA director over the coals for his beliefs on same-sex marriage. Booker’s vitriol towards Pompeo says a lot about how the Left has become increasingly intolerant.

Pompeo, a Christian who has taught Sunday school, holds the biblical view that same-sex marriage is a sin. He also holds the Christian view that everyone, regardless of his or her sexual attraction, deserves to be treated equally under the law and with dignity and respect.

Pompeo is far from alone in his views of government affirmation for homosexual attraction. Most Christians believe this, as did Hillary Clinton — even during her own tenure as secretary of State. But that didn’t stop Booker from berating Pompeo in a self-important filibuster during which the man who’s supposed to be answering questions barely got two words in.

Here’s some highlights from the exchange.

Booker: “Is being gay a perversion?”

Pompeo: “Senator, when I was a politician I had a very clear view on wether it was appropriate for two same sex persons to marry, I stand by that–”

Booker: “So you do not believe it’s okay for two gay people to marry?”

Pompeo: “I stand by that view, it’s the same view, by the way–”

Booker: “And so people in the State Department, I’ve met some in Africa that are married. So under your leadership, you believe that should not be allowed?”

Pompeo: “Senator, we have married gay couples, I believe, at the CIA. You should know, I treated them with the exact same rights. . .”

Booker: “Do you believe that gay sex is a perversion? Yes or no?”

Pompeo: “My respect for every individual, regardless of their sexual orientation, is the same.”
