It is the nature of the progressive bully to project onto anyone who believes differently the certainty that the victim of his bullying would act just as the bully would. Thus in questioning Mike Pompeo, Trump’s candidate for Secretary of State, Sen. Corey Booker has demonstrated and proven his identity as a progressive bully.
Booker projects that since Pompeo does not personally agree with the idea that people of the same sex should marry, Pompeo as Secretary of State would therefore subject all homosexuals in the department to punishment or discrimination for their proclivity and present his views to other governments in his role as secretary as the nations policy. In other words he thinks Pompeo would act just as Booker would act toward anyone who disagrees with him. He believes Pompeo would be just as vindictive and nasty as Booker.
Further Booker seems to believe that anyone with Christian beliefs is not qualified for public office. Booker is not alone in his hostility and ideological bigotry toward Christians and those who would disagree with his orthodoxy. He and other Democrats have shown that they would disqualify a vast majority of Americans of all colors from holding public office.
In that bright light of intolerance Booker disqualifies himself, not Pompeo.
Corey Booker Hounds Mike Pompeo For Agreeing With Christianity On Gay Sex
” Christian beliefs have become disgusting to liberals, who apparently expect us to reject them before seeking public office.”
From The Federalist: APRIL 13, 2018 By Bre Payton
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.”
Booker: “You’re going to be secretary of state of the United States at a time that we have an increase of hate speech and hate actions against Jewish Americans, Muslim Americans, Indian Americans. Hate acts are on the increase against these Americans. You’re going to be representing this country and values abroad in places where gay individuals are under untold persecution, face untold violence. Your views do matter. You’re going to be dealing with Muslim states on Muslim issues. I do not necessarily concur that you are putting forth the values of our nation when you believe there are people in our country that are perverse, and where you think that you create different categories of Americans and their obligations when it comes to condemning of violence.”
So in Booker’s mind, it’s not okay for Pompeo, a Bible-believing Christian, to hold biblical beliefs. Further, it’s really not alright for an individual to hold these beliefs while serving in public office.
As Obianuju Ekeocha points out, Christian beliefs have become disgusting to liberals, who apparently expect us to reject them before seeking public office.
