Senator Ted Cruz Serving up Some Spam as He Panders to the Religious Right Evangelicals...

In keeping with his ever pandering and bigoted ways Senator 'Green Eggs and Ham' Ted Cruz is off an running to make denying gays and lesbians marriage equality a top priority. Certain to get the Evangelicals (specifically) and So-Cons (in general) all giddy over his stance he plows ahead in efforts to push America back to the pre 1950 era.

From the The Des Moines Register:
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz cast himself as a leading Republican opponent of same-sex marriage during an appearance before a crowd of evangelical Christians in Des Moines on Monday.

Cruz, R-Texas, described the ongoing shift toward legal recognition for gay couples as an "unrelenting assault on traditional marriage," and castigated judges who have struck down prohibitions for "ignoring their oaths, ignoring the Constitution and legislating from the bench."

The issue is one that Cruz said distinguishes him from other potential candidates in what looks to be a crowded 2016 presidential field. While others have de-emphasized or dropped altogether their opposition to same-sex marriage, he said, he would continue to make it a priority.


In a brief interview with reporters afterward, Cruz said his campaign-style outreach in Iowa as well as his efforts in the Senate have revolved around reassembling what he called "the old Reagan coalition" of religious and fiscal conservatives, disaffected Democrats and others by promoting a boldly conservative vision for governance.

"I believe that 2016 will be an election like 1980, and that we will win, as Reagan said, by painting in bold colors and not pale pastels," he said.

The Interfaith Alliance of Iowa held a press conference seeking to clarify that political views and policy prescriptions offered by conservative Christians are not universally shared in Iowa.

"Many faiths live by one version or another of the Golden Rule, the guiding principle to treat others as you would be treated," said Connie Ryan Terrell, executive director of the interfaith alliance. "We wish that the American Renewal Project, David Lane, Ted Cruz, Bobby Jindal and all the clergy in attendance today would not just speak those words, but live by them."
This is one fiscal and non religious conservative/libertarian that enthusiastically applauds Terrell's sentiments. Senator 'Green Eggs and Ham' Ted Cruz should try making ham sandwiches for a living.
