On Thursday, April 12 U.S. senators witnessed Senator Booker (D-N.J.) put forward what is essentially a new litmus test that says one must endorse homosexuality - effectively choosing between faith and public service. Not satisfied with Mike Pompeo’s pledge to treat everyone with respect and dignity, Senator Booker repeatedly berated Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo over his beliefs about marriage.
Our Constitution guarantees there will be no religious litmus test. Americans should never be forced to choose between their faith and public service.
I urge you to reject Senator Booker’s religious test for nominees.
