PERFECT: Ted Cruz Flawlessly Sums Up Gay Marriage Debate
This morning Ted Cruz was killing it on Good Morning America. Someone asked about his stance on gay marriage rights and his response was nothing short of awesomeness. Hear it for yourself.
We have a right to live according to our faith, according to our conscience. And that freedom ultimately protects each and every one of us... I am a constitutionalist and under the Constitution, marriage is a question for the states. And so if someone wants to change the marriage laws, I don't think it should be five unelected lawyers down in Washington dictating that. And even if you happen to agree with that particular decision, why would you want to hand over every important public policy issue to five unelected lawyers who aren't accountable to you, who don't work for you. Instead if you want to change the marriage laws, convince your fellow citizens to change the laws. And by the way, it may end up that, we've got fifty states, that the laws in one state may be different than another stand. And we would expect that. We would expect the people of New York to adopt different laws than perhaps the people of Texas or California. And that's the great thing about a big diverse country... Is that we can have different laws that respect different values.
He hit the nail on the head. Even if you disagree with gay marriage, as he himself does, he makes a valid point. The states should be figuring out this mess, not the federal government. If you're a person who is constantly touting "keep the government out of my bedroom," then you can't then turn around and invite the government into your bedroom. This same principle also applies to you feminists who want taxpayer-funded abortion and birth control. Government can't do everything for you ninnies.
Notice something else? Leftists give zero craps whatsoever to people who have religious beliefs. They're main concern is I WANT MY WEDDING CAKE or I WANT MY PHOTOGRAPHY or I WANT BLAH BLAH BLAH because GAY. They're never concerned with the rights of other people. They just want their own crap taken care of. If you disagree with them, you'll be scourged. Sure, not all homosexuals are rampant activists like this, but the narrative certainly is.

This is why Ted Cruz is great at these sorts of Town Halls and debates. He's able to remove emotion from it, and examine the issue from a constitutional perspective. The United States, after all, is founded on the constitution. Not how you feel about a gay wedding cake.
