For John, BLUF: I guess this plays to his base, and it dirties up future SCOTUS nominees. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From PJ Media, by Mr Tyler O'Neil, 5 February 2019.
Here is the lede plus one:
On Tuesday, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), a 2020 candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, asked Trump judicial nominee Neomi Rao if she considered homosexual relationships to be sinful. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) immediately called Booker out on this line of questioning.In a pluralistic society, such as ours, we need to distinguish between illegal and sinful. We all have friends who have sinned. Forgiveness is a useful attitude and one God probably agrees with.
Booker seized on Rao's 2008 article opposing the Supreme Court decision Lawrence v. Texas, which decriminalized homosexual activity. He then directly asked her, "Are gay relationships in your opinion immoral?"
On the other hand, we should avoid an "anything goes" attitude. Stable families, raising stable, hard working kids, is the bedrock of a successful long term society.
