“Do you have a personal animosity against Christians, sir?”

Those words from Senator Ted Cruz, answering a barrage of questions from KMBT-TV, all about homosexuality.  Cruz said, “I recognize that you’re reading questions from MSNBC.”

Cruz then stated that “ISIS (the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) is executing homosexuals,” and this week was a very bad time for gay rights due to “the expansion of ISIS, the expansion of radical, theocratic, Islamic zealots that crucify Christians, that behead children and that murder homosexuals.” 

 Cruz added:

“The Constitution gives marriage to elected state legislatures…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.”
