During a recent confirmation hearing, judicial nominee Neomi Rao had her Christian faith questioned by Democratic senator Cory Booker.
Booker asked Rao, a devout Christian, if she believed homosexuality was a sin or homosexual relationships were immoral.
Rao took the question in mature stride, questioning the relevancy before answering no. “Senator, my personal views on any of these subjects are things that I would put to one side and I would faithfully follow [the precedence of the Supreme Court].”
Senator Ted Cruz immediately condemned Booker attacking Rao’s faith and issued a stinging rebuke.
“The Senate Judiciary Committee should not be a theater for mischaracterizing or twisting a nominee’s views nor an avenue for persecution. We’ve seen a growing pattern among Senate Democrats of hostility to religious faith. I was deeply troubled a few minutes ago to hear questioning of a nominee asking your personal views on what is sinful. In my view that has no business in this committee. Article VI of the Constitution says there shall be no religious test for any public office.”
“We have seen Senate Democrats attack what they characterized as religious dogma. We’ve seen Senate Democrats attack nominees for personal views on salvation. I don’t believe this is a theological court of inquisition. I think the proper avenue of investigation for this committee is a nominee’s record. So, Ms. Rao, let me ask you about your actual record, which is what this committee should be looking at – not our religious views or your religious views whatever they may be.”
This isn’t the first time we have seen Democrats attacking people of faith in this country and it won’t likely be the last but we need to fight for our rights to remain a Christian nation.
