During Senate Confirmation Hearing for Mike Pompeo for Secretary of State, NJ Senator Cory Booker Asked Him Three Times About 'Gay Sex'
Sen. Cory Booker Tries to Shame Mike Pompeo
Over His Strongly Felt Christian Beliefs
4/12/2018, Mike Pompeo, President Trump’s nominee for secretary of state, faced an offensive line of questioning from NJ Democrat Sen. Cory Booker demanded to know if Mike Pompeo opposed same-sex marriage and if he thought gay sex was perverse.
Booker 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 cited a speech Pompeo gave as a congressman in 2015 at a church, in which he quoted words a pastor had once delivered before the Kansas State Legislature.
“America had worshipped other Gods and called it multiculturalism. We’d endorsed perversion and called it an alternative lifestyle.”
Booker then repeatedly asked Pompeo: “Is being gay a perversion?”
Pompeo responded that as a politician he had a “very clear view” on whether it was appropriate for two same sex persons to get married. “I stand by that,” he said.
Booker: “So you do not think it is appropriate for two gay people to marry?”
Pompeo responded, “Senator, I continue to hold that view.”
Booker then suggested that Pompeo’s views would be a problem, saying that he had met people at the State Dept in Africa who were in same-sex marriages.
