U.S. Sen. Cruz (R-Texas) quickly rushed to defend Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis, who was jailed for defying the Supreme Court decision to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
If you ever had any doubt that Cruz is a lot like his crazy Daddy, this should put that matter to rest.
“Today, judicial lawlessness crossed into judicial tyranny. Today, for the first time ever, the government arrested a Christian woman for living according to her faith. This is wrong. This is not America,” the Canadian-American said in a statement.
Naturally, Cruz went on to blame President Obama.
“I stand with Kim Davis. Unequivocally. I stand with every American that the Obama Administration is trying to force to chose between honoring his or her faith or complying with a lawless court opinion,” he writes.
Not so fast, Mr. Religious Pants.
Even though Scalia has not discussed Davis’s actions and inaction, he has previously addressed the question of what public officials should do when their official obligations conflict with their religious conscience, The Washington Post notes.
Writing in “First Things” in 2002, Scalia explained that if he were to conclude that the death penalty is fundamentally immoral, he should no longer serve on the bench.
Cruz asks, “Where is the call for President Obama to resign for ignoring and defying our immigration laws, our welfare reform laws, and even his own Obamacare?”
We have no idea what he’s talking about. We do not speak Potato.
“When the mayor of San Francisco and President Obama resign, then we can talk about Kim Davis,” he declared.
So only if Obama resigns, then we can discuss Kim Davis, the four-times married Christian, who isn’t doing her job.
“Those who are persecuting Kim Davis believe that Christians should not serve in public office. That is the consequence of their position. Or, if Christians do serve in public office, they must disregard their religious faith–or be sent to jail,” he continued to babble.
“Kim Davis should not be in jail. We are a country founded on Judeo-Christian values, founded by those fleeing religious oppression and seeking a land where we could worship God and live according to our faith, without being imprisoned for doing so.”
“I call upon every Believer, every Constitutionalist, every lover of liberty to stand with Kim Davis. Stop the persecution now,” the poor persecuted Texas Senator concluded.
We are not supposed to be a lawless nation. We are not a Christian nation. If Davis was a Muslim and disregarded any of our laws according to her faith, Cruz would be singing a different tune.
When Ted Cruz is in prison for shutting the government down, then we’ll talk.Click here for reuse options!
