Cruz: ‘Gay marriage’ leads to Christianity being defined as ‘hate speech’

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is predicting that tolerance of equal rights for LGBT people will result in Christianity being defined as “hate speech.”

In a recent interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, host David Brody told Cruz that activists saw the opposition to same sex marriage as “hate speech from the pulpit.”

“If you look at other nations that have gone down the road towards gay marriage, that’s the next step of where it gets enforced,” Cruz agreed. “It gets enforced against Christian pastors who decline to perform gay marriages, who speak out and preach biblical truths on marriage, that has been defined elsewhere as hate speech, as inconsistent with the enlightened view of government.”

“I think there is no doubt that the advocates who are driving this effort in the United States want to see us end up in that same place.”

Cruz also told Brody that the country was in need of a spiritual revival because “we’re at the edge of a precipice.”

“If we keep going down this path we’re risking losing our nation, we’re risking losing the incredible oasis of liberty,” he warned.

No, hate speech delivered from a pulpit is still hate speech.

These creeps really are devolving.

The saddest part of this is Cruz is a very intelligent man. He knows better.

r3, I think he is sincere. His beliefs may be politically profitable, but I think he actually believes what he is saying.

Can you imagine the Republican debates with Cruz, Rand Paul and Rubio as the frontrunners? They're going to make the clown car debates of 2012 look like an ACLU meeting. It will destroy the Republican party.

R1, yikes, he looks like he's in his mid-50s!

But I guess it's just the hairstyle and suit that give the impression of age (and religion, frankly).

He should get a normal-guy haircut and wear khakis and a polo shirt!

Yep, much of modern Christianity is indeed hate speech.

Good to see that even religulous idiots are starting to recognize that.

Cruz needs to get down off the cross. He doesn't have the abs to pull that off.

We like Latinos as long as they are rich, white Cubans like Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.

I'm sure they also like their Marias, R12. Just as long as they remember their place, and remain maids.

Just by looking at Ted Cruz, I imagine him as the face of a terrible scandal,same with Joel Osteen.

So, if he's worried, then maybe he's inadvertently acknowledging that the religion is not all that great after all? Otherwise why even acknowledge it?

Why should Christianity, or any other organised religion or institute not have the mirror turned back on themselves after thousands of years of their own abuses? They've been wicked down the ages to many people who wouldn't play ball so why shouldn't they get a turn to feel heat?
