Rafael Cruz, father of Texas Senator and GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz, on Wednesday stated that a goal of the LGBT community is to “legalize pedophilia.”

Political Research Associates published video of Cruz's remarks, which he made while speaking to J. Lester Feder of BuzzFeed News at the World Congress of Families taking place in Salt Lake City.

The exchange happened after Cruz participated in a WCF panel on Marriage and the Family.

“During the panel, several speakers alluded to a connection between LGBT people and pedophilia. Do you think that's true?” Feder asked, then asked if he thought “the LGBT community is going to push that?”

“Yes, I believe so,” Cruz answered.
