THE FAITH IS STONG

Rick Santorum And Ted Cruz Pressed On Whether They’d Attend A Gay Wedding

Screen Shot 2015-04-17 at 9.45.35 AMWhen contemplating same-sex marriage, it’s important to take into consideration how it might affect straight guys who don’t know any gay people. They really have the best perspective, don’t you think?

Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt really got to the heart of the debate when he asked Rick Santorum and Ted Cruz to blabber about gay marriage as if it had one single damn thing to do with them. Hugh also asked them if they’d attend the same-sex wedding of a loved one.

Their answers are positively heartwarming — surely just what Jesus would have said.

Rick Santorum’s response was a predictable “no,” couched with some garbage about how it violates his faith but he’d still love the person because he’s a good Christian. Please go home, Rick.

Ted Cruz tried to tap dance a little, but his response is so clearly indicative of the problem.

So, Ted — would you attend the same-sex wedding of a friend, family member or loved one?

“I have not faced that circumstance. I have not had a loved one have a gay wedding.”

He also doesn’t understand the concept of a hypothetical question, and he does go on to spout this nonsense:

“What the media tries to twist the question of marriage into…is a battle of emotions and personalities. They try and make it say, for example, ‘gosh any conservative must hate people who are gay.’ As you know, that has nothing to do with the operative legal question…I’m a constitutionalist, and under the constitution, from the beginning of this country, marriage has been a question for the states.”

Why would marriage make people emotional, we wonder?

Fellow Republican Christian Marco Rubio also opposes gay marriage and was asked the same question. He was the only one who sounded vaguely human. “If there’s somebody that I love that’s in my life, I don’t necessarily have to agree with their decisions or the decisions they’ve made to continue to love them and participate in important events,” he said.
