    Rev. Rafael Cruz, father of U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), implies that "homosexual marriage" is a communist plot during a speech at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa.

    From the Des Moines Register: Recent movement in some states and by the Supreme Court advancing gay rights and allowing same-sex marriage is part of a plot to undermine the traditional family structure and eliminate religion, clearing the way for a socialist state in which government is worshipped as a god, he said.

    “Socialism requires that government becomes your god,” he said. “That’s why they have to destroy the concept of God. They have to destroy all loyalties except loyalty to government. That’s what’s behind homosexual marriage.”

    I'll just bet the Reverend is quite comfortable with unquestioned loyalty to the Republican Party, however. The Christian Right gets nuttier every day.

    And we know this is true because government has such a gracious history of being so kind to gay people so as to encourage our unquestioning loyalties. We were just waiting for the marriage thing before we declared government divine.

    Lovely point. No doubt lost on the Cruzes, padre e hijo.

    " The Ministry of Health officially removed homosexuality from its list of mental illnesses in 2001"

    Dear reverend Cruz, you know what the bible says about telling lies? Look it up.

    They should consider adding "conservatism and voting Republican" in its place.

    Excellent point! And I strongly suspect that Cuba is less than a shining pillar of equality for LGBT people.

    But this just shows how they would try to twist anything in their hatred of us.

    If God him or her or itself descended heaven for a moment and in witness of every being on the planet bestowed upon the LGBT community his or her or its blessings and then disappeared once again forever, as is declared his or hers or its nature to be, then these same very same sorts would declare God the devil just to appease their innermost hate.

    It's all true! The Gay Agenda is published in Moscow, and the Gay Leadership is in daily contact with the KGB. All the Russian anti-gay laws are a desperate effort to cover the whole plot up. Thank God for Cruz and his sources inside the Kremlin; most people don't even know that communism is still ruling Russia (more cover up), but Cruz is on top of it all!
