Some Questions for Senator Cory Booker About Sexual Perversion
The Stream ^ | 4-13-18 | Michael L Brown

Posted on 04/15/2018 6:42:28 PM PDT by ReformationFan

Senator Booker, pursuant to your questioning of Secretary of State candidate Mike Pompeo, I’d like to ask you some forthright questions. I understand you might never read this article. Or, if you do read it, you might choose not to respond. At the least, though, we can put these questions on public record.

When interviewing Secretary of State candidate Mike Pompeo, you asked him about his views on same-sex “marriage,” which he had previously opposed.

I very much appreciate the fact that Mr. Pompeo did not back down on his conviction that marriage is reserved for members of the opposite sex. He said, “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 position.”

What Does This Have to Do With Serving as Secretary of State? As you surely know, his position agrees with the historic view of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, as well as with the current view of more than 85 percent of the countries of the world.

Surely you know Mike Pompeo’s position agrees with the current view of more than 85 percent of the countries of the world.

Mr. Senator, since the Secretary of State is required to reach out to all the countries of the world, shouldn’t you be glad that Mr. Pompeo’s views are in harmony with the vast majority of these nations? Isn’t that a positive rather than a negative, especially when he stated that, regardless of his personal views, he would treat all couples with respect?

In his own words, “I believe it’s the case we have married gay couples at the CIA. You should know I treated them with the exact same set of rights.”

But not only did you ask him about his views on same-sex “marriage.” You also asked, “Do you believe gay sex is a perversion, yes or no? Yes or no, sir? Do you believe that gay sex is a perversion, because that’s what you said here in one of your speeches. Yes or no, do you believe gay sex is a perversion?”

May I ask you, Senator Booker, what this has to do with serving as Secretary of State?

You clarified your remarks by adding, “Your views do matter. You’re going to be dealing with Muslim states on Muslim issues. And I do not necessarily concur that you are putting forward the values of our nation when you believe there are people in our country who are perverse.”

But again, may I ask you: Did you think through these words clearly? Did you intend to say what you said?

What About Those With Different Values? First, are you not aware that Americans remain deeply divided on homosexual practice? There has certainly been a shift towards affirming homosexuality in the last 20 years. But to this moment, we are a nation passionately divided over LGBT issues. That means that if Mr. Pompeo said, “I think gay sex is wonderful,” he would not be speaking for our nation as a whole.

So, in your view, what are “the values of our nation” when it comes to homosexual acts?

Second, in this context, why did you bring up “Muslim states” and “Muslim issues”? Again, as you must surely know, the vast majority of Muslim states vigorously oppose homosexual practice. And they would agree that homosexual acts are perverse. In fact, their views on this subject are even stronger than those of Christian conservatives in America.

What, then, was the point you were making? Were you stating that you want our Secretary of State to push gay activism on Islamic nations? To say to them, “If you want to partner with America, you’ll need to change your historic, deeply held religious convictions?” Was this you point? If not, what point were you making?

In your view, would these religious convictions disqualify someone from serving our nation? Are you proposing a religious test for the Secretary of State?

Third, what would you say to a traditional Jew or conservative Christian who affirms the teaching of Scripture? The Bible states plainly that homosexual sex is detestable in God’s sight, even while affirming God’s love for gay and straight alike. In your view, would these religious convictions disqualify someone from serving our nation? Are you proposing a religious test for the Secretary of State?

Where Do You Draw the Line on Perversion? Fourth, in your opinion, are any sexual acts perverse? Are any contrary to our biological design? Are any in violation of the intent of our creator? Can you answer with a yes or no?

Several years ago, a colleague and I had dinner with a local gay couple. We wanted to get to know each other on a personal level in the midst of our deep differences. At one point I asked these two men, “What about two adult brothers having a romantic and sexual relationship? Would that be OK?”

They were repulsed by the very thought, calling it “Icky,” although they could give no specific reasons for their feelings. Do you concur with their position? Would you judge gay sex between consenting adult brothers or sisters to be perverse? If so, based on what criteria?

There’s actually a push in some gay circles to accept adult consensual incest. As a recent headline asks, “Why can’t gay or lesbian twins have sex with or marry each other? Why is incest wrong between same-sex siblings?”

If it’s appropriate for you to press Mike Pompeo on his views as to what constitutes sexual perversion, is it inappropriate for me to press you on your views? What kind of sexual acts would you deem perverse?

With all due respect to your office, sir, I would suggest that someone can serve our nation (and the world) admirably while believing that some sexual acts are contrary to God’s plan. Surely we all draw the line somewhere, do we not? And if Mr. Pompeo draws his lines in accordance with Scripture, while also loving his neighbor as himself, should he be penalized for it? Certainly not.

“but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.” Article VI, Section 3.

Booker is being a 2020 peacock to try to get the most attention, specializing in outrage and diversity.

We are here:“If there are no absolutes by which to judge society, then society is absolute.” Francis Schaeffer, How Shall We Then Live? (Old Tappan NJ: Fleming H Revell Company, 1976), p. 224. I'll bet this poltroon Booker has never heard of Francis Schaeffer. Cory is the logical consequence of Schaeffer's quote.

What the heck is wrong with States like New York and New Jersey that they always elect light weights and weasels like Cory Booker.

Exactly.

“If there are no absolutes by which to judge society, then society is absolute.”

And in that case, the word “society” means the state, hence the state is “absolute.”

Booker needs to provide many more angry bug eyed faces for photo ops that can be plastered on any sign if and when he declares candidacy for anything. He is so perfectly photogenic for opposition campaigning. He must be a maxie waters protégé of dirty insane looks.

Is Corey Booker gay? He’s such a hysterical drama queen, he must be gay. He certainly likes to talk about gay sex, he seems obsessed with it.

Little Cory likes making headlines...he has imaginary friends like Odungo...the ass clown once bought a box of diapers to a snowed in young mother in Newark ( for headlines sake)...the mother replied,kids can’t eat diapers,just get the ******* streets cleared so people could get out to the stores...

Someone should ask Sen Booker what he thinks of people who believe homosexual sex is a perversion, and how he has treated those people as their senator and mayor.

Some politicians are appealing when they act crazy or like a zealot. Sometimes the President can be to us who understand and appreciate him, sometimes even Mad Maxine can be to her constituents.

But not Corey. The crazier and meaner he acts, the less appealing and credible he seems. Corey has not yet realized this. The sea change was a few weeks ago, when he yelled and fussed at a female member of the president’s cabinet.
He was ridiculous and clearly biased in his agenda.

Yeah, he looks like he’s going to pop a vein. He should probably keep tabs on his BP.

Booker is an imbecile who was practically just given a Senate seat because NJ voters are retarded sheep. Dead Jimmy Hoffa could have won just as easily.

You give Booker too much credit for having common sense.

“He should probably keep tabs on his BP.”

He needs more fat and sodium in his diet.

Well, just wait until his other end is stuffed! Then his mouth should be free. Maybe.
