The Amazing, Deft Retort of Ted Cruz to Bizarre, Pro-Gay Marriage Questioner

During an interview this week, KMBT-TV's Kevin Steele repeated asked Ted Cruz about his stance on gay marriage. Cruz's response was, as you might expect, perfect.

Let me ask a question. Is there something about the left, and I am going to put the media in this category, that is obsessed with sex? Why is it the only question you want to ask concerns homosexuals? OK, you can ask those questions over and over and over again. I recognize that you’re reading questions from MSNBC.

...You don’t want to talk about foreign policy. I recognize you want to ask another question about gay rights. Well, you know, ISIS is executing homosexuals. You want to talk about gay rights?

This week was a very bad week for gay rights because the expansion of radical, theocratic, Islamic zealots that crucify Christians, that behead children and that murder homosexuals. That ought to be concerning you far more than asking six questions all on the same topic.

Suitably chastened, Steele then shifted directions with an absolutely bizarre question: "Do you have a personal animosity against gay Americans?"

Do you have a personal animosity against Christians, sir? Your line of questioning is highly curious. You seem fixated on a particular subject. Look, I’m a Christian. Scripture commands us to love everybody and what I have been talking about, with respect to same-sex marriage, is the Constitution which is what we should all be focused on. The Constitution gives marriage to elected state legislators. It doesn’t give the power of marriage to a president, or to unelected judges to tear down the decisions enacted by democratically elected state legislatures.

Beautiful. Perfect. American.
