  • Cruz Throws Back Gay Question To Reporter: "Do You Have A Personal Animosity Against Christians?"



    Presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz made a campaign stop in Beaumont, TX on Tuesday, May 19. He was asked repeatedly by Kevin Steele from KMBT-TV about the issue of gay marriage, to which Cruz responds by turning the tables. (via Joe Walsh)


    SEN. TED CRUZ: Let me ask a question: Is there something about the left, and I am going to put the media in this category, that is obsessed with sex? Why is it the only question you want to ask concerns homosexuals? Okay, you can ask those questions over and over and over again. I recognize that you're reading questions from MSNBC...

    You're wincing. You don't want to talk about foreign policy. I recognize you want to ask another question about gay rights. Well, you know. 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.

    REPORTER: Do you have a personal animosity against gay Americans?

    CRUZ: Do you have a personal animosity against Christians sir? Your line of questioning is highly curious. You seem fixated on a particular subject. Look, I’m a Christian. Scripture commands us to love everybody and what I have been talking about, with respect to same-sex marriage, is the Constitution which is what we should all be focused on. The Constitution gives marriage to elected state legislators. It doesn’t give the power of marriage to a president, or to unelected judges to tear down the decisions enacted by democratically elected state legislatures.

    By itself, mostly bravo for Ted Cruz. Politicians should always have a ready answer for controversial questions. But, instead of making it personal with the reporter, Cruz should welcome such questions as an opportunity to promote the conservative cause. Instead of "Do you have a personal animosity against Christians?", he should have said "Many Democrats have a personal animosity against Christians." Any politician should always appear comfortable, not defensive, promoting liberty and the Constitution.

    As for ISIS, it would be hard for a Liberal to be moved by Cruz's plea. Ted Cruz supported corrupt foreign policy that helped create ISIS, and Cruz continues to support such policy. Cruz promoted the lies that removed Saddam Hussein, clearing the way for ISIS. The U.S. Iraq Survey Group issued its Final Report saying "The ISG has not found evidence that Saddam possessed WMD stocks in 2003, but the possibility that some weapons existed in Iraq, although not of a militarily significant capability." Scott Ritter, chief weapons inspector until Bill Clinton kicked out the inspectors in 1998 said prior to the 2003 invasion, "since 1998 Iraq has been fundamentally disarmed." Hans Blix, chief weapons inspector before the war has made statements supporting Ritter's assertion, and the findings of the ISG. No 20/20 hindsight need. US and UN intelligence knew in 2003 Saddam had no WMDs. And, they said so, but shamefully, no one on the Christian right listened. President Bush also know Iraq had disarmed, else he would have waited for Saddam to be inevitably caught before having the US attack.

    The US is still helping ISIS in Syria. So, it would be hard for the Democrat reporter to think Cruz has any ideas that would put down ISIS. Besides, the Democrat reporter could hardly care in any case as neither side in Iraq pretends that homosexuality is morally legitimate.

      Lets not forget that Bill Clinton warned against Iraq's nuclear threat. Both Bill and Hillary supported the Iraq war. As for weapons of mass destruction, no nuclear weapons were found, but weapons of mass destruction were found which included not only nuclear but biological and chemical weapons.



      Lets not forget that Saddam also had the 3rd largest tank brigade in the world.

      Lastly President Bush warned what would happen if the U.S. pulled out too early from Iraq. His assessment was right to the point and accurate.



      The weasel in the White House denying pulling out of Iraq:




      God bless,
