Theocracy at the State Department: In a deplorable development the homepage of the U.S. State Department is currently displaying an image of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo with the caption “Being a Christian leader.”
New Civil Rights Movement reports:
Is separation of church and state dead?
The website of the U.S, Department of State currently features a photograph of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the words, “Being a Christian Leader.”
The link on the State Dept. homepage goes to a video and the text of Pompeo’s speech to the American Association of Christian Counselors in Nashville, Tennessee on October 11.
According to the official homepage of the U.S. State Department, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is not an American leader, but a “Christian leader.” As such, Muslims, Jews, atheists, and other non-Christians are treated as second class citizens.
The State Department homepage is promoting Pompeo’s recent address to the American Association of Christian Counselors World Conference in Nashville. His address to the association was titled: “Being a Christian Leader.”
This is not the first time Pompeo has abandoned the secular values upon which this nation was founded to promote ignorance and religious superstition. In fact, Pompeo has a well deserved reputation as a dangerous Christian extremist.
For example, an alarming video recorded in 2015 shows Pompeo discussing the Rapture. In the video Pompeo expresses his opposition to same-sex marriage while addressing a church congregation. And at one point in the video Pompeo declares:
We will continue to fight these battles, it is a never ending struggle… until the Rapture.
Speaking at a church group in Wichita, Kansas, in 2014, Pompeo claimed that Christianity was the “only solution” to combat terrorism, arguing that the greatest “threat to America” is caused by “people who deeply believe that Islam is the way.”
Pompeo told the church-goers:
This threat to America is from people who deeply believe that Islam is the way and the light and the only answer.
These folks believe that it is religiously driven for them to wipe Christians from the face of the earth.
They (Muslims) abhor Christians, and will continue to press against us until we make sure that we pray and stand and fight and make sure that we know that Jesus Christ our savior is truly the only solution for our world.
That’s right, the Secretary of State, America’s top diplomat, believes that “Jesus Christ our savior is truly the only solution for our world.”
More recently, as Secretary of State, Pompeo promoted the Bible and his evangelical Christian identity in a major speech outlining the Trump administration’s Middle East policy last January.
And last March Pompeo suggested that God sent President Donald Trump to Earth to save Israel and protect the Jews, claiming that Trump is a possible Queen Esther, poised to defend Israel and save the Jews from Iran.
The stupid, it burns.
Bottom line: With no respect for separation of church and state, the U.S. State Department is currently promoting the Christian religion by displaying an image of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo with the caption “Being a Christian leader.”
