Senator Ted Cruz, who is running for President of the United States in the GOP primary, needs to keep is father, Rafael Cruz, on a leash. Because, if there’s anyone who is a bigger media whore than Ted Cruz, it’s his father, Rafael.
While at an event in Houston, the elder Cruz, who is somehow an ordained pastor, spoke to a group of right-wing homophobes trying to repeal an ordinance protecting LGBT citizens. Not only did Cruz attack the ordinance, he chastised the Supreme Court for its decision in June legalizing same-sex marriage, saying it had no jurisdiction to rule on marriage. It is because of Satan’s influence that conservatives must aspire to higher office, Cruz told the group.
But it was his stinging an outrageous attack on Houston’s openly lesbian mayor, Annise Parker, that took the cake in lunacy:
It is appalling that in a city like Houston, right in the middle of the Bible Belt, we have a homosexual mayor. Why? Because so many people have been sitting in their pews or sitting at home with this business about ‘separation of church and state.’
Cruz then launched an assault on the separation of church and state, calling it a lie.
Let’s remember one thing: the elder Cruz is a campaign surrogate for the Senator in Texas. He’s supposed to represent what his son believes.
