Sen. Cory Booker, Who Once ‘Married’ Homosexuals as Mayor, Asks Trump Nominee: ‘Do You Believe That Gay Sex Is a Perversion?’

WASHINGTON (Fox News) During his secretary of state confirmation hearing, CIA Director Mike Pompeo refused to say whether he thinks same-sex relationships are a “perversion” when pressed multiple times and said he stood by his earlier views against gay marriage.

Referencing a past speech Pompeo gave, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., asked the former Kansas congressman point blank, “Is being gay a perversion?”

“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,” Pompeo, vying to be the nation’s top diplomat, responded during the Thursday hearing.

As a congressman, Pompeo opposed the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalized gay marriage in 2015.

      but if you define it as “happy and joyous”

      You’re about the last person I’d describe as “happy and joyous.”

      • Amos Moses – He>i

        Then you do not undderstand christians nor christianity …..no surprise…..

        • TheKingOfRhye

          I’ll freely admit I don’t understand you, at least.

  • Luminous

    Their “marriages” are as bogus as Monopoly money.
    Who are they trying to kid? All along the agenda has been to normalize homosexuality in order to normalize pedophilia.

    • Amos Moses – He>i

      witchcraft is trying to convince people that something different is the same …….or that a thing is something the same is different …….. like homomirage is marriage …… or that perverted sex is “normal” sex ……. or that Corey Booker is sane …………

  • phil8

    Yes, Cory Booker, sodomy is a perversion.

    • Fee

      Heterosexual relationships included. Married couples, take heed, because this includes you all too. Perverted sex and still an abomination to almighty God, indeed!

  • Bill

    This guy is a sick degenerate pervert

  • Gilfredo Candelers

    Let us define gay sex,

    Perversion- a sexual behavior or desire that is considered abnormal or unacceptable.

    also,

    Abomination- a thing that causes disgust or hatred.

    Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Leviticus 18:22

    • TheKingOfRhye

      Just be aware, it’s probably not as many people as you think, or that you’d like, that consider it “abnormal or unacceptable” or have “disgust or hatred.” 62% of Americans in favor of SSM to 32% against, in a 2017 poll. (and perhaps surprisingly, Republican are split just about evenly. Interesting…)

      • Reason2012

        Their polls are completely inaccurate. Just like the “polls” that put Hillary ahead by even double digits in states she lost.

        • TheKingOfRhye

          Inaccurate? When just about every poll done by multiple polling organizations for the last few years has said the same thing, and/or been indicative of a general trend towards more support for LGBT rights? What, do you think it’s all part of a vast conspiracy or something? I didn’t say at first, but I got that poll from Pew Research which is partly funded by the evangelical Protestant John Templeton Foundation. I’d think if there was a huge liberal conspiracy to fabricate poll results, they wouldn’t be in on it. Ever heard of “Occam’s Razor”??

          And anyway, if it’s not a conspiracy and they’re just inaccurate…just how inaccurate do you think it is? They could be quite a bit off and it would still mean more people are in favor of SSM than against.

        • TheKingOfRhye

          Ah, I see you edited your comment. Kinda makes my response make a little less sense. You’re accusing liberals of dishonesty, yet that looks a little like dishonesty yourself, if you ask me.

          So, you’re going with the conspiracy option. I’m not buying that one. Like I said, it’d have to be a pretty big conspiracy that every polling organization is in on.

          And when was the last time a state had a vote on same-sex marriage? There’s been a consistent trend of increasing support for it, so if you’re talking about a vote that was 10 years ago or something, it doesn’t reflect the same thing as the 2017 poll I was talking about.

          But, really, it’s all a moot point, though. It doesn’t matter. All those votes to ban SSM are meaningless, since banning it is unconstitutional.

      • Amos Moses – He>i

        “62% of Americans in favor of SSM”

        and so have bought into a lie …. SO WHAT ……… it just makes them all liars ………

        • TheKingOfRhye

          Of course you realize that since I’m an atheist, I think a greater percentage than that are….not liars, but wrong. You see, I make a distinction between those two things, unlike some.

          At any rate, I think you and a lot of others care about that sort of thing, since when the discussions here turn to anything LGBT, you’re always talking about how it’s “not normal” or whatever, as if not being normal is a “sin” in and of itself.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            yeah … a distinction with no distinction ……. does not matter if they believe it to be a lie or not …… it is still a lie and it makes them believers in a lie …… and therefore liars …………..

            LGBT is all built on a lie …… and if you have to start your lie by saying a behavior is “normal” ….. then it aint ………. and the problem is more not about their practice of homosexuality and other depravity …… it is that they require … no DEMAND that everyone else agree to their lie ….. because i guess if enough people agree with them ….. then it will be true …… but the FACT is …… they KNOW it is a lie even if everyone agrees ………… and they cannot TOLERATE that descent despite their DEMAND of tolerance for THEM ….. and they CANNOT be tolerant of those who call their lies LIES ……………….

          • TheKingOfRhye

            yeah … a distinction with no distinction ……. does not matter if they believe it to be a lie or not

            If someone believes a lie to be the truth, they’re not liars for saying it’s the truth. C’mon, this is simple stuff here.

            and if you have to start your lie by saying a behavior is “normal”

            You just don’t see what I’m getting at, I guess. It’s the anti-LGBT people like you who are so concerned about what’s “normal”, not me. I always see people like you saying things like “it’s just not normal” as if that’s the most damning thing about it. So, they’re not normal, so freakin’ what?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            yes … they are ……….

          • TheKingOfRhye

            My, such a well-thought-out and detailed rebuttal….

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            lies are lies no matter the persons belief about ….. as you say ….. it is pretty simple stuff …….

          • ToneBurst

            You are an example of someone who can lie nonstop and think it’s OK because you think you’ve got Jesus agreeing with you.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            Nope … i agree with Him …. we have no ability to persuade Him …….

          • ToneBurst

            But all the other Christians who agree with Him you call nominal Christians.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope ….. they do not agree with HIM ….. and so they are only NOMINAL …………

          • ToneBurst

            No True Scotsman fallacy, and your opinion doesn’t dictate a person’s Christianity.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            NTS does not apply nor does it nullify anything ……. nor does it put anyones brain in neutral … except yours …… and their own words dictate what they said and what they think ……

          • ToneBurst

            Why would No True Scotsman not apply? You’re a poster boy for it, telling people who are the real Christians and who the false ones are. You’re off your rocker.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            christianity is not a logic problem …… very simple ………

          • ToneBurst

            It isn’t ABOUT Christianity, it’s about you claiming your version of Christianity is purer and better than everyone else’s. And it’s not. You just have your brand, and they have theirs, and you don’t get to tell other people theirs is wrong.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            i have no version of christianity …… so false paradigm ……. and red herring argumentation ………. WRONG ….. FAIL …… try again …………

          • ToneBurst

            Yeah, you have a very hateful, narrow-minded, judgemental, joyless, hate-filled version of Christianity, and that’s why you are criticized here.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “I always see people like you saying things like “it’s just not normal” as if that’s the most damning thing about it.”

            it is …. because saying it is “normal” is a lie ……… and if you have to try to convince others that it is “normal” by saying it is …… pretty much cements that being a lie in stone …….

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Well, tell that to the people trying to tell you it’s normal. I ain’t one of them.

            But, you know…I think what people who say that really mean is that it’s a normal variation, so to speak. Homosexual people are a minority, so it’s “abnormal” in that sense, but there have been homosexual people in different cultures and all throughout history, so it’s “normal” in that sense, if you see what I mean. Or to put it another way, it’s normal that a small percentage of people are homosexual.

          • LynnRH

            There has always been some abnormal people in the world ever since the first humans sinned against God. So yes sexual sin (which includes homosexuality) been here throughout history but it’s still abnormal.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            not a “variation” ….. a perversion of order that causes disorder and destruction because it is a lie ….. as all lies do …

          • TheKingOfRhye

            because it is a lie

            What, are you saying homosexuality itself is a “lie”? Now that’s just ignoring facts, regardless of whether you approve of it or not.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            they lie to themselves …. then after they have convinced themselves of their lie …. they need everyone else to accept their lie …. and it is to the point that they DEMAND their lie be tolerated ……………

          • ToneBurst

            There’s a very good example of something you say that other Christians are right about that you are wrong about. I only point this out to you because you were looking for an example earlier.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            sure …. whatever ……….. prove it a lie ………

          • ToneBurst

            I don’t have to, you call, everything a lie that disagrees with you.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            confusion ……

          • ToneBurst

            Sorry you’re confused.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope …. your response is a ball of confusion ……..

          • ToneBurst

            Why don’t you shove it?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            my ….. how quaint ………..

      • Chet

        What man thinks is essentially irrelevant in the overall scheme of things as God Almighty has very clearly defined what is and what is not acceptable behaviour. Despite his best efforts man cannot change such. And after all, it is Him, with whom we all have to do…

        • TheKingOfRhye

          For something that’s supposed to be so “very clearly defined”, people have a lot of different ideas about it.

      • LynnRH

        And of those percentages you mention they can not be true Christians. Because if they were and they have studied God’s Word and therefore have read what He says about sexual sin (which includes homosexuality) they would have ALL stated against it.

        • TheKingOfRhye

          These are polls of Americans in general, not just Christians. I’m not particularly trying to make the point that Christians support SSM, though obviously some do, whether you think they’re “true Christians” or not.

          Honestly, I don’t care who’s a “true Christian” or not all that much. That’s for you guys to figure out, I guess. I don’t have a dog in that fight, so to speak.

  • Nidalap

    This is what I’d call an anti-Christian litmus test…

  • Reason2012

    Adults continue to permanently turn away from homosexuality, even after decades of believing the lie they were “born that way”, proving it’s not genetic, but the product of indoctrination, confusion, mental instability and/or abuse.

    Homosexual behavior is most literally pointed out as a sin, and God has not changed on that regard. But if a person has those inclinations but does not act upon them, does not dwell in lust upon others, but is instead struggling against them to avoid them, then it’s not a sin. It’s just like sinful inclinations of any kind: it’s acting upon it when it becomes a sin.

    And this is what God says about sin and specifically the behavior of homosexuality:

    Romans 1:26-27 ”For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: (27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their_lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”

    1 Corinthians 6:9-10 ”Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate [men who willingly take on the part of a “woman” with another man], nor abusers of themselves with mankind [s odomites], (10) Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”

    1 Timothy 1:9-10 ”Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, (10) For_whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind [s odomites], for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;”

    Jude 1:7 ”Even as_Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”

    Luke 17:29 ”[Jesus said] But the same day that Lot went out of_Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.”

    Matthew 19:4-6 ”And he [Jesus] answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, (5) And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? (6) Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”

    Jesus made it quite clear God made us male and female so that a man will leave his father and mother (not two fathers, not three mothers and so on) and cleave onto his wife (not his husband and so on).

    The Word of God rebukes us all – even if we all try to say we don’t believe the Bible, the very Word of God will be our judge when we face Him. And God is a righteous judge and will judge us all – not turn a blind eye to our sin. Do not be deceived by the world: it’s God we will have to convince that His word was a lie, not men. What happened in Noah’s day when the entire world rejected God? Did God spare them because there were so many? No – they all perished except for Noah and his family!

    Proverbs 9:10 ”The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.”

    God spared not His chosen people – we are kidding ourselves if we think He will spare the United States of America if we choose to blatantly turn away from Him.

    Jeremiah 12:17 ”But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith the LORD.”

    Luke 17:28-30 “So also as it was in the days of Lot: they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; (29) but the day Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from the heaven and destroyed them all. (30) Even so it shall be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.”

    Romans 1:18-32 “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold [suppress] the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

    For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, m urder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”

    The entire Bible points out men having_sex with men is an abomination. Likewise woman having_sex with women. It’s not just Paul that pointed it out.

    Genesis 19:4-13 “But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of S odom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them [men wanting to have_sex with men].

    And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing [he offers his daughters to be_raped to keep them from having_sex with another man – shows_rape is not the issue but male on male_sex]; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.

    And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door. But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door. And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.

    And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place: For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it.”

    These two messengers were sent to destroy that place before the event where they tried to_rape these messengers.

    Leviticus 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”

    Leviticus 20:13 “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination …”

    Even cross-dressing is an abomination:

    Deuteronomy 22:5 “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.”

    Deuteronomy 23:17 “There shall be no_whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a s odomite of the sons of Israel.”

    1 Kings 22:46 “And the remnant of the s odomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land.”

    1 Kings 15:11-12 “And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father. And he took away the s odomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.”

    2 Kings 23:7 “And he brake down the houses of the s odomites, that were by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove.”

    Ezekiel 16:49-50 “Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister S odom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.”

    And the “pride” parades about homosexuality are more of the same.

    Even Jesus points out marriage is a man and a woman.

    Matthew 19:4-5 “And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?”

    Not father and father. Not mother and mother. Not his husband.

    And only two people of opposite gender can become “one flesh”.

    Live forever, people – not temporarily only to be cast out for living for the things of this world.

    May God/Jesus Christ be glorified!

    A perversion ,well more than that according to God its a PUNISHMENT…& JUDGMENT
    NASB Rom 1:24-26
    24 Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25 For they exchanged the truth of God for [p]a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed [q]forever. Amen.
    26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is [r]unnatural,27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing [s]indecent acts and receiving in [t]their own persons the due penalty of their error.

    Emphasis on the last sentence in the above verse.

    • akagaga

      God often informs us of the consequences of making wrong decisions. Just look at the warning issued when the people decided they wanted a king to follow in 1Samuel 8. That chapter also serves as a good look at secular government, then and now.

  • Susan Perelka

    All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Sin is rebelling against what God calls is good and what God calls is evil. Rebelling against the Creators AUTHORITY to set the standards for HIS Creation. (We are the created, not the Creator.) Homosexuality, transgender, fornication (that includes viewing porn, it’s in your heart), adultery (been looking at someone lustfully who is not your husband or wife) are all sexual immoralities. Why? Because they are ALL against the order God determined….. One man with one woman until death do you part. A covenant relationship set by God Himself. Anything else is in rebellion to the way that God determined HIS creation should abide by. That is what ALL sin is, rebellion against Gods order. Remember, gossip and slander are also listed as sins. We ALL have sinned against Him, that is why we need Jesus. Selah- pause and think about that.

  • WesTexan

    1 Corinthians 6:9. “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.”

    1 Timothy 1:8–10. “But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching,”

    And homosexuality and transgenderism is Satanic — rejecting God’s creation isn’t healthy.

    The truth when it comes to the real statistics regarding the gay lifestyle is this; expectancy of 46 years for gay men, the incidences of certain cancers related to their lifestyle that are way out of whack with the general population, the hugely disproportionate numbers of suicides, and the general negative mental health, AIDS, etc, etc, etc. It is a sin that will lead you to hell. But, there is a way out and that is through Jesus Christ. Stop fooling yourself and living a lie.
