Rafael Cruz, the father of Sen. Ted Cruz and a right-wing activist, says that the Supreme Court’s Obergefell ruling legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide opened the door for marriage “between two men and a horse.”
Cruz was campaigning last night for fellow Christian extremist E.W. Jackson, who’s running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Virginia’s Tim Kaine, when he made the remarks. He was saying that electing more conservatives would limit the power of liberal judges to hurt “traditional” families.
Somehow, since 2015, no men have married a horse and families have not been destroyed. But Republican leader Donald Trump is in the middle of a scandal involving hush money he paid to the adult film star he had an affair with shortly after his third wife gave birth to his fifth child.
“Let me tell you another two words that are not in Article 1, Section 8: The word ‘marriage’ or the word ‘family,’” Cruz said, arguing that the court had no right to decide this issue in the first place. “That decision of the Supreme Court on June 26 of 2015, where they said that God got it wrong and marriage was not just between one man and a woman, it could be between two men and a horse. But basically, that decision was much more than same-sex marriage, it was, at the heart of it, the destruction, or the attempt to destroy, the traditional family.”
But yeah, blame gay people, I guess.
