Just in case anyone had any doubts about where Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's heart really lies, he's decided to take a bold stand with Vladimir Putin against treating people equally regardless of their sexual orientation by coming out with legislation against marriage equality because:
“I support traditional marriage. Under President Obama, the federal government has tried to re-define marriage, and to undermine the constitutional authority of each state to define marriage consistent with the values of its citizens,” Cruz said in a statement. “The Obama Administration should not be trying to force gay marriage on all 50 states. We should respect the states, and the definition of marriage should be left to democratically elected legislatures, not dictated from Washington. This bill will safeguard the ability of states to preserve traditional marriage for its residents.”Yes, because as Vladimir Putin and Ted Cruz know, the people who really need protection aren't the people who are getting discriminated against—it's the people who deserve the right to keep on discriminating.
