• Ted Cruz: The Left is ‘Obsessed With Sex’

    Texas senators and Republican presidential contender Ted Cruz has had it with the media asking him if he hates gay Americans because of his belief that marriage should only be between one man and one woman.

    And now the Tea Party rockstar is lashing out.

    While holding several meetings Tuesday with a number of business and community leaders in Beaumont, Texas, Cruz was peppered by reporters with several questions about whether or not he dislikes homosexuals.

    From the Washington Post: 

    Then Texas’s junior U.S. senator — visiting Beaumont to meet privately with county officials and others — got in a light sparring round with reporters, mainly working on his attacks on Hillary Rodham Clinton and defending his views on same-sex marriage.

    “Is there something about the left — and I am going to put the media in this category — that is obsessed with sex?” Cruz asked after fielding multiple questions on gay rights. “ISIS is executing homosexuals — you want to talk about gay rights? This week was a very bad week for gay rights because the expansion of ISIS, the expansion of radical, theocratic, Islamic zealots that crucify Christians, that behead children and that murder homosexuals — that ought to be concerning you far more than asking six questions all on the same topic.”

    Cruz also said he did not think his opposition to gay marriage will hurt his chances with moderate voters.

    “With respect, I would suggest not drawing your questions from MSNBC — they have very few viewers and they are a radical and extreme partisan outlet,” Cruz told a reporter. He cited the expansion of “mandatory same-sex marriage” as an assault on religious liberty in the United States.

    More of this would be good to see from every conservative.
