|Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas|
Senator Ted Cruz of Texas says the Obama Administration is “hostile” to traditional marriage:
“This administration is the most hostile to traditional marriage administration this country has ever seen.
“The administration has been using the authority of the federal government to try to force states, to force federal recognition of marriages that state law prohibits.
“The Obama administration came into Utah and said, ‘We’re not going to listen to what the U.S. Supreme Court said. We, the federal government, are going to recognize marriages in the state of Utah and Utah state law explicitly does not recognize as marriage’ and that was really, in my view, an abuse of power.”
What’s interesting about this is perspective. Ted Cruz sees a “hostile” administration. I see people across America working to ensure equality for everyone.
The legalization of marriage equality has NO effect whatsoever on anyone’s “traditional marriage.”
None. None. None.
What Cruz objects to is the idea that the LGBT community, who has traditionally been forced to second class citizenship, is somehow finding it’s way to the same rights of other Americans.
The Senator is out making the rounds anywhere he can to help promote his doomed anti-gay State Marriage Defense Act which would, according to Cruz, “protect states from the federal government’s efforts to force any other definition upon them.”
