Ted Cruz lashes out over gay marriage fight, and some targets might be surprising

No one can have a doubt about where Ted Cruz stands on the controversy swirling around Indiana’s Restoration of Religious Freedom Act.

He made it crystal clear Wednesday night.

And in the process the Texas senator called out Republican politicians and the executives of Fortune 500 companies that he said have been running scared from the issue of religious freedom in the face of relentless attacks from the left under the guise of gay rights.

“Religious liberty is not some fringe view. It is the basis of this country,” Cruz said during a town hall meeting in Sioux City, Iowa, a crucial stop in his campaign to win the Republican nomination for president.

That view has changed, and Cruz told the crowd why he thinks that happened.

“Unfortunately the modern Democratic Party has elevated extreme partisanship and in particular this is all part and parcel over the fight over gay marriage,” he said. “

“And because of their partisan desire to mandate gay marriage everywhere in this country, they also want to persecute anyone that has a good faith religious belief that marriage is a holy sacrament between the union of one man and one woman and ordained as a covenant by God.”

But Cruz didn’t stop at Democrats.

Big business, he said, has “been running shamelessly to endorse the radical gay marriage agenda over religious liberties ….”

“Sadly, a whole lot of Republican politicians are terrified of this issue,” Cruz said.

Clearly, he isn’t one of them.
