    First, let’s establish the fact that Mike Pompeo is an anti-gay bigot:

    ur great nation."


    There is much more but you get the idea. In todays news there is this:

    https://www.pinknews.co.uk/2018/04/23/democratic-senator-cory-booker-smear-campaign/

    I find it hard to believe that the National Organization for (heterosexual only) Marriage is still in existence after their humiliating defeat on the issue…..but sadly, they are.

    But here is the real kick in the head. It shows the desperation, or perhaps the stupidity of the religious right who insist on conflating the opposition to hate and bigotry to being anti-Christian:

    Are these people so stupid to believe, or perhaps so dishonest,as to portray the issue as Christians vs. LGBT and their advocates? Do they not know that many LGBT people and their advocates are in fact Christian? Do they not know that many Christian denominations, and individuals support LGBT causes?

    Real Christians are opposed to hate and discrimination. Booker is not attacking religious liberty as they allege. He is exercising his legal authority and moral right to oppose a nominee for a crucial cabinmate post based on clearly disqualifying concerns. Claiming that Booker wants to “ban the bible” is a dangerous combination of stupid, crazy, and dishonesty wrapped in desperation and irrational fear.

    Sadly, it appears that as of tonight, Pompeo will be confirmed. God help the United States of America

    Booker is an anti-christian bigot ....

    And Pompeo will be the Secretary of State who helps President Trump end the Korean war, and over sees the de-nuclearization of the Korean Penninsula....

    Approving the gay is not a litmus test to hold public office.

    Like it or not, people still have the freedom to NOT BE gay and reject homosexuality.

    Gays are a minuscule part of the overall population...but demand far too much attention.

    Such sudden shifts, are what is radical.


    What was conventional wisdom, just a few years ago, is not radical.
