Ted Cruz smacks down pro-'gay' TV reporter

'Something about the left ... that's obsessed with sex?'


Sen. Ted Cruz smacked back at a reporter who insisted on asking about his views on “gay” versus traditional marriage by turning the tables and querying him: Why are you guys on the left so “obsessed” with this topic?

Kevin Steele from KMBT-TV repeatedly asked Cruz about his stance on “gay” marriage during an interview in Beaumont, Texas. And Cruz’s fiery reply?
“Let me ask a question,” he said. “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.”
He then told the reporter, “You’re wincing,” and refusing to talk about important issues.
“You don’t want to talk about foreign policy,” Cruz said. “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 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.”
The reporter asked, Real Clear Politics reported: “Do you have a personal animosity against “gay” Americans?”
Cruz responded: “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.
