Hugh Hewitt asked Ted Cruz the most important question to the American news media. Not, how would you handle the $20 Trillion dollars in debt Obama is leaving? Not, how would you handle the nuclear-armed Iran Obama is leaving? Not, how would you deal with the chaos in the Middle East Obama is leaving? Not, how would you restore the devastated economy Obama is leaving? Or, how would you restore the rule of law after Obama’s lawless regime?
No, Hugh Hewitt asked the really important question. “Would you attend a gay wedding?” And this is the meat of his answer.
Well, I will tell you, I haven’t faced that circumstance. I have not had a loved one go to a, have a gay wedding.
I’m a Constitutionalist. And under the Constitution, from the beginning of this country, marriage has been a question for the states. It has been a question for elected legislatures in each of the 50 states. And what we’ve seen in recent years from the left is the federal government and unelected federal judges imposing their own policy preferences to tear down the marriage laws of the states.”
And so if someone is running for public office, it is perfectly legitimate to ask them their views on whether they’re willing to defend the Constitution, which leaves marriage to the states, or whether they want to impose their own extreme policy views like so many on the left are doing, like Barack Obama does, like Hillary Clinton does. That’s what we would be doing.
