CRUZ: There is no room for Christians in today's Democrat Party

The title of Jonah Goldberg's recent bestseller -- Liberal Fascism -- has become part of the modern political parlance.

Sen. Ted Cruz argued Saturday that Democrats have become so extreme and "intolerant" of religious views that "there is no room for Christians in today's Democratic Party."

"There is a liberal fascism that is dedicated to going after believing Christians who follow the biblical teaching on marriage," the Texas Republican said in his speech before a Christian conservative audience in Waukee, Iowa.... For his part, Cruz alluded to business that faced pushback for declining to cater to same-sex weddings.

...As the Supreme Court gets ready to hear oral arguments on whether to overturn same-sex marriage bans in states, Cruz introduced legislation last week that would protect bans in place ... "We need leaders who will stand unapologetically in defense of marriage," he said.

The religion of today's progressives is government. Big government. Unlimited government.

There is no room for people of faith in today's Democrat Party.

Marriage is a covenant defined by God, not a contract defined by man and thus able to be regulated by man's governments.

Because too many government officials are now hostile to how God defines marriage, government is being used to force me to recognize and even enable "marriage" that God tells me is morally repulsive. Just as we have a separation of church and state, we must now have a separation of marriage and state. When marriage is a private matter, then anyone can enter into any manner of relationship they please, but they cannot use government to impose their definition on others.
