At the Senate confirmation hearings for PDT’s pick to be Secretary of State, the Democrats… at least the most show-boaty one… seemed far more interested in the nominee’s views on gay marriage and gay sex than on his credentials and beliefs about international relations.
During a Senate confirmation hearing Thursday, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) pushed Pompeo on his previous comments, particularly his suggestion that homosexuality was a “perversion.”
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.”
The left simpers, “How will he stand up o countries that don’t respect gay rights.” To which I respond, Shut Up, Skippy. Concern about Gay Rights in foreign countries didn’t stop BO and company from giving billions upon billions of dollars to a regime that hangs gay people from cranes in the public square.
When pressed on how he would treat gay couples within the State Department, Pompeo replied that he treated all couples within the CIA “with the exact same set of rights.”
