• Ted Cruz: There’s a Gay ‘Jihad’ Against Religious Freedom In America

    Ted Cruz has compared the fake outrage over the recent passage of religious freedom laws in several states to “Jihad,” which is an Islamic phrase for a war that is fought by Muslims to spread Islamic beliefs around the world by force.

    “We look at the Jihad that is being waged right now–in Indiana and Arkansas–going after people of faith who respect the Biblical teaching that marriage is the unification of one man and one woman,” Republican presidential contender Ted Cruz said.

    “We need to bring people together,” Cruz added.

    Cruz’s comments in the video above come just one week after he told a crowd of supporters in Texas that the gay marriage movement today seems to only “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.”

    Since Indianan Governor Mike Pence signed that state’s version of a Religious Freedom Restoration Act into law, the story has received wall-to-wall media coverage, an Indiana pizzeria, has been attacked and received nearly a million dollars in donations, which they plan to to charity. Arkansas has also passed its own religious freedom law.

    What you may not have heard about or seen much coverage on is the fact that many Native American reservations have similar religious freedom laws and some Muslim bakeries aren’t at all supportive when it comes to baking cakes for gay weddings either:
