Sen. Cory Booker Violating Constitution: Voting Against Pompeo for Religious Beliefs

WASHINGTON, DC – Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) announced on Friday that he will vote against CIA Director Mike Pompeo’s nomination to become secretary of state because of Pompeo’s beliefs on marriage and sexuality — beliefs consistent with Pompeo’s Christian faith. Conservative leaders are now denouncing Booker’s vote as a violation of the Constitution’s Religious Test Clause.

Booker sharply questioned Pompeo on Thursday during the nominee’s confirmation hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, referring to words Pompeo spoke at a church in his district when the current director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was still serving in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Pompeo has also supported efforts to defend marriage as the union between one man and one woman. Those beliefs are consistent with mainstream Christian beliefs.

Booker announced on Facebook late Friday that he will vote against Pompeo, saying that the former congressmen’s religious beliefs on these issues make him unfit to serve in federal office representing the United States. “I believe you can’t lead the people if you don’t love the people,” Booker wrote. The senator then quotes Bible verses that he thinks Pompeo is not living up to, including references to loving his neighbor.

Article VI of the U.S. Constitution provides, “No religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office of public Trust under the United States.”

1. Liberals hate Christians and Jews. But would NEVER vote against a muslim

even if that muslim had ties to terrorist organizations like the muslim brotherhood.

2. You really really like to project

Like.. A person could just go through, and read your posts to completely understand how much the Right hates America, American Values, and Americans themselves. Its actually kinda astounding how transparent it is.

14. The Left calls Christians a creepy infiltration or claims they aren't fit to serve in government but

elevates a Muslim like Keith Ellison to a national leadership position without question.

Tell us when anti Christian bigotry was an American tradition and value.

15. The left aint done nuthin.

One lil blog post said something, and you got your knickers in a twist over it.

Keith Ellison has faced more questions than Donald Trump ever did.

And.. Ever since the current crop of Republicans set foot in office. Hate against Christ has been the staple of the Right for decades. Claiming to represent Christ, then doing the things they do, hating the way they do.. This is one of the darkest times for anyone who would actually follow Christ since Constantine converted it.

6. The only thing is why is anyone surprised?

The lefts bigoted hatred for Christianity and the Constitution is so well known and expected!

All you have to do is see how the ACLU is silent on the trampling of the Constitution by the left!

No other group in this country can hold a candle to the right when it comes to hating Christ or trampling the constitution.

16. The right hates America, American Values, and Americans themselves? Excuse me, but...

It wasn't the right that wants to put men with little girls in their bathrooms, thats the modern day left going against American values there. Gender differentiated bathrooms are a long held american value.

It wasn't the left that wanted to allow Americans keep more of what they earned, it was the right. Keeping most of what you earn is an American value. Taxxing the piss out of people you don't like is a lefty value, and not very American.

It wasn't the right that wants to eliminate the second amendment and private gun ownership rights, thats the left. Private gun ownership is a long held American value.


And lastly, it wasn't the right that swore, publicly, to put illegal aliens above Americans. That was the left.

All of the above are factually true and accurate. You know it, I know it, and everyone here knows it.

20. Sure does. You are excused.

But the truth remains obvious

Its the right that has a history of supporting the privileges of grown men over the safety of little girls. In bathrooms and everywhere else.

Is the Right that wants to feed more of our tax dollars to corrupt projects while starving our population of resources and education.

Its the Right that destroyed the 2A. Y'all just havn't figured it out yet. But you blew it for all of us.

And its the Right that is at the heart of ensuring that illegal immigration will continue by protecting illegal employers and refusing to do anything that would actually be effective, instead demanding we siphon off those Tax dollars mentioned earlier to personal enrichment and aggrandizement schemes like pointless walls.

Thats what is factually true. And you know it. But you will never admit it aloud, because.. well.. The right cant be honest and still be itself.

22. You haven't the authority.

"Its the right that has a history of supporting the privileges of grown men over the safety of little girls."

Asserted without evidence, dismissed likewise.

"Is the Right that wants to feed more of our tax dollars to corrupt projects while starving our population of resources and education. "

Asserted without evidence, dismissed likewise.

"Its the Right that destroyed the 2A. Y'all just havn't figured it out yet. But you blew it for all of us."

Asserted without evidence, dismissed likewise.

"And its the Right that is at the heart of ensuring that illegal immigration will continue by protecting illegal employers and refusing to do anything that would actually be effective, instead demanding we siphon off those Tax dollars mentioned earlier to personal enrichment and aggrandizement schemes like pointless walls. :"

Asserted like a true amnesty advocate, without evidence, dismissed likewise.

"Thats what is factually true."

So factually true that all you can do is assert it without providing a shred of evidence, while the things I posted about are public, reported, and widely known.


You aren't very good at this, which makes sense, since you're a modern day lefty.

That the Left Hates the Constitution because it was written by a Bunch of Rich White Slave Owners.

8. So now we have a defacto Religious test for office?

If your religious beliefs violate the "flexible" tenets of lefty secularism and the latest fads, you aren't fit for office?

I wonder how he'd react if some New Jersey voters said they refused to vote for him ... unless he converted to Zoroastransim?

10. That's different, the Ladies Sodality at St. George's probably won't kill you

They might gossip about your recipe for Pineapple Upside Down Cake, but that's about it.

And the Knights of Columbus don't teach bomb making in the basement of the school at their monthly meetings.

Whole different scenario.

11. Little Cory is just upset about Pompeo's opposition to gay marraige.

He doesn't really care about the rest of Pompeo's religious beliefs.
Cory has never n]married, and is seldom seen with women.
He has been frequently asked if he is gay.
His usual response is "What if I am?"

His business, he just shouldn't let it color his Senatorial duties.
