Booker Vs. Pompeo/Political Correctness Vs. American Christianity
Political correctness – the rigging of politics using different rules for different groups, and buttressed by the media – ensures that Democrats always have the upper hand. – Andrew Breitbart
ChristianPost.com reports that
CIA Director Mike Pompeo, who is President Donald Trump’s pick to be the next Secretary of State, was grilled on Thursday about his religious beliefs on homosexuality and his views on Islam at a U.S. Senate hearing.
Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., cited past statements made by Pompeo and asked whether he would specifically say that being gay is a perversion, to which the prospective Secretary of State replied: “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.”
Pointing out that there are some gay persons in the State Department who are married, Booker then asked if he believed gay marriage should not be allowed.
Pompeo responded, “We have married gay couples at the CIA … I treated them with the exact same set of rights …”
Before Pompeo could finish his statement, Booker again pressed him, asking, “You believe that gay sex is a perversion? Yes or no?”
The CIA director replied, “I’m going to give you the same answer I just gave you previously. My respect for every individual regardless of their sexual orientation is the same.”
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, called the questioning a “litmus test” but said he was impressed by how Pompeo handled it.
“Not satisfied with Pompeo’s pledge to treat everyone with respect and dignity, Sen. Booker demanded an endorsement of gay sex. Is this the Left’s new litmus test for public service?” Perkins tweeted.
At another point in the hearing, Booker also pressed the CIA director on his views on Muslims, asking whether he believes that people worshiping “other gods” is a negative thing in America.Pompeo responded, “You can look at my record. … My record is exquisite with respect to treating people of each and every faith and no faith with the dignity they deserve, to protect the right to practice their religion or no religion, for that matter.”
“I’ve heard these critiques … I’ve worked closely with Muslim leaders, with Muslim countries, the CIA has saved countless, thousands of Muslim lives during my 15 months. This is at the core of who I am. … I promise you that I will treat persons of each faith or no faith with the dignity and respect that they deserve,” he added.
So, when did standing up for your beliefs and principles and speaking the truth become “politically incorrect”?
I am aware that political correctness has been around for a good while now.
However, when Barack Hussein Obama became President of the United States, political correctness seemed to become magnified by 100 fold.
For example, you could not criticize Obama without being called a Bigot or a Raaaciiist.
This seems awfully hypocritical to me, because all of the self-proclaimed experts on political correctness are presently busy calling President Donald J. Trump everything but a child of God every day that he remains in office.
Remember when Obama first got in the office? His Foreign Policy Team told Americans that we could no longer call acts of Muslim Terrorism, acts of Muslim Terrorism. They were to be known from then on as man-caused disasters.
The longer that the Liberals or “Progressives” remain in power, the dumber their attempts to enforce political correctness over Americans seem to be.
Ask Mike Pompeo.
And, the more determined they are to force their Relative Morality and Situational Ethics down the throats of the actual overwhelming majority of average Americans, living here in “flyover Country”, who want no part of it.
For example, the attempt by Liberals to force businesses to allow transvestites into women’s restrooms.
States like North Carolina and Mississippi then passed laws limiting the use of public restrooms to those of the “biological sex” that aligns with the label on the door.
Assignment by equipment.
A very easy concept to understand for the overwhelming majority of Americans.
However, Modern American Liberals are “special”.
Do you remember when New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said that Conservative Republicans,
Right-to-life, pro-assault weapons, anti-gay — if that’s who they are, they have no place in the state of New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.
And New York City Communist Mayor, Bill DeBlasio, publicly agreed with his remarks?
Imagine if the Governors of the states of North Carolina and Mississippi had proclaimed that all Democrats, Liberals, and libertarians, gay or straight “had no place in the state of Mississippi because that’s not who Mississippians are”.
Democrat Pundits, and Liberal and small “l” libertarian Politicians, on both sides of the aisle, would have a bigger conniption than that of Rosie O’Donnell, if she were banned from America’s all-you-can-eat buffets.
Concerning the question about treating Muslims differently, yes, it is ideal to treat people the way they treat you.
However, while I have met some very nice American Muslims, I have also been inside a mosque where I was looked at as if they wanted to take a scimitar to my neck.
If Moderate Muslims are not behind their radical brethren’s eternal jihad against us infidels, they need to get their mugs in front of the cable news networks’ TV cameras and say so…because all I see representing them when I turn on the news, are the abrasive members of CAIR, blaming America for all the world’s troubles.
Which is ironic, because the Former President of the United States of America is demonstrably Islam’s biggest supporter in this country, as so aptly proven by his refusal to participate in the March Against Radical Islam, led by 50 World Leaders, held in Paris, France after the horrible Islamic Terrorist Attack there.
Are “The Smartest People in the Room” so contrary, as to not realize that Radical Islam punishes every single social issue that American Liberals so “righteously” defend in this nation?
The maddening thing is that every time you challenge Liberals on this fact, they try to equate Radical Islam with American Christianity.
Frankly, the ignorance of Modern American Liberals blows my mind.
Cory Booker jumped on Mike Pompeo with both feet in the name of “political correctness” for two very specific reasons:
- Pompeo is a member of a White House Bible Study Group.
- Liberals believe that they are their own god and they worship at the altar of political correctness.
Thursday’s Hearing showed without a doubt that Professional Politicians like Cory Booker, especially Liberal Ones, are out of touch with average Americans and they view Traditional American Values, such as Christianity, to be antiquated and unnecessary in their future political vision of a Democratic Socialist America.
Well, they can wish for that all they want to.
Meanwhile, America needs a strong, intelligent Secretary of State,
And, MIke Pompeo would make a great one.
Being “politically correct” has no business being one of the qualifications for the job.
