Sen. Cory Booker Shames Mike Pompeo over Christian Beliefs
Todd Starnes ^ | 12 April 18 | Todd Starnes

Mike Pompeo, President Trump’s nominee for secretary of state, faced an offensive line of questioning from Sen. Cory Booker – demanding to know if he opposed same-sex marriage and if he thought gay sex was perverse.

Booker (R-NJ) came dangerously close to suggesting Pompeo’s Christian faith and religious beliefs made him unsuitable to be secretary of state. •Booker: “Is being gay a perversion?” •Pompeo: “Senator, when I was a politician, I had a very clear view on whether it was appropriate for two same-sex persons to marry. I stand by that.” •Booker: “So, you do not believe that it’s appropriate for two gay people to marry?” •Pompeo: “Senator, I continue to hold that view.”

Sen. Booker then grilled the former CIA director about his views on gay sex.

“You believe that gay sex is a perversion? Yes or no,” the senator demanded to know. “Yes or no? Do you believe gay sex is a perversion?”

It was an obscene question – sickening!

Gay rights groups and their allies lashed out – accusing Pompeo of being a homophobe – a bigot.

“Mike Pompeo’s reaffirmed opposition to marriage equality and LGBTQ rights further proves that he is dangerously wrong to serve as our nation’s chief diplomat,” Sarah Kate Ellis, president of GLAAD, told NBC News in a statement.

Chad Griffin, president of the far-left Human Rights Campaign, told the Washington Post there would be serious consequences for gay people around the world if Pompeo became secretary of state.

“Mike Pompeo’s long-standing opposition to LGBTQ equality makes him a reckless choice to lead our nation’s diplomatic efforts. The decision to nominate anti-LGBTQ Mike Pompeo could have serious consequences for the United States and LGBTQ people around the globe,” he told the newspaper. “Pompeo does not deserve to be confirmed.”

An overwhelming number of Evangelical Christians share Pompeo’s belief that marriage is between one man and one woman. And here’s an inconvenient truth – it was the same belief about marriage that President Obama had when he campaigned for the presidency.

Very true, and the world hates us for it.

Booker is unhinged, and I don't say that lightly.

He lost his mind when Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen testified.

Aren't their rules for Senators? These personal attacks are clearly out of bounds.

Where is Turtle McConnell?

Booker (R-NJ)

That was the author's typo - we know Booker is a rat. Seems like it makes little difference these days though. Congress is a den of snakes - both parties.

When Booker is frying in Hell, he may think about his attack on God’s Word, which condemns homosexuality in no uncertain terms.

Yet but one more reason I won’t feel too sorry for the anti-Christians when they get the Antichrist.

Enjoy, Cory Booker. Enjoy.

Geez...Booker looks Demonic. Since when is being a Christian a crime? Looks like we are back in Rome again.

Hopefully this will invigorate Pompeo to clean house of all these scum when he gets the job.

You post reminded me of The Rich Man and Lazarus

Luke 16:19-31 King James Version (KJV)

19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,

21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house:

28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

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

•Pompeo: “Senator, do you believe that it's appropriate for a man to take another man's penis in his mouth and/or anus?”

It’s pretty well known here in NJ that Cory doesn’t like women.

Cory Booker is a total fraud and a real threat to be boosted into a Presidential nominee role. Anything he does to make a complete arse of himself makes it less likely that will happen. Thus, this is a good thing.

JMHO

Wikipedia says that this punk,when asked point blank,refused to state that he's normal.Translation...he's in the closet.He's a pervert.So his contempt for Christianity shouldn't surprise anyone.

I happened to see this today.

Booker is disgusting. And that's about as nice as I can put it.

But one more reason I knew what Obama was. And is.

And Hillary and Bill were all-too-happy to be a part of it.

To clarify my prior post, it’s Booker that looks and acts like a rabid Liberal dog, IMO.

Then again, most RATs act that way, in my opinion. Booker must be their role model.
