• Ted Cruz: Democrats Bullying Christians Into Accepting Gay Marriage

    Ted Cruz said that the outrage surrounding Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act is really about liberal Democrats trying to bully people of faith into accepting gay marriage.

    “And here’s what’s happened. Which is it used to be there was a bipartisan consensus,” Cruz said at a town hall Wednesday. “We’d defend the civil liberties of Americans, even those we disagreed with. We defended the religious liberty of people to seek out other faiths, faith different than our own, because that’s what this nation was built on.”

    Choosing not to “second guess” Mike Pence’s political strategy as it relates to his decision to “fix” Indiana’s RFRA law, Cruz explained what’s really behind liberalism’s latest crusade.

    “Unfortunately the modern Democratic Party has elevated extreme partisanship and in particular this is all part and parcel over the fight over gay marriage,” Cruz said. “And because of their partisan desire to mandate gay marriage everywhere in this country, they also want to persecute anyone that has a good faith religious belief that marriage is a holy sacrament between the union of one man and one woman and ordained as a covenant by God.”
