This week in Beaumont, TX, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) told KMBT-TV’s Kevin Steele to stop “reading questions from MSNBC” about gay rights.
Steele asked Cruz, “Do you have a personal animosity against gay Americans?”
Cruz replied, “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? OK, you can ask those questions over and over and over again. I recognize that you’re reading questions from MSNBC, that you’re wincing. You don’t want to talk about foreign policy. I recognize that you want to ask another question about gay rights.”
Cruz continued, “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.”
