Republican presidential candidate Ted
Cruz last week reiterated his opposition to marriage equality.
The Texas senator made his remarks on a
conference call with conservative activists organized by E.W.
Wing Watch reported.
During the call, Peter LaBarbera, who
helms Americans for Truth for Homosexuality, asked Cruz how he would
reverse the Supreme Court's marriage ruling and whether he would “end
Obama's policy of actually flying the rainbow flag at U.S. embassies
worldwide” and oppose the Equality Act, a federal LGBT protections
bill, which he described as “the Homosexual Superiority Act.”
Cruz railed against the high court's
landmark Obergefell case, calling it “one of the greatest
threats to our democracy we had seen in modern times.”
He pledged as president not to “use
the federal government to enforce this lawless decision that is a
usurpation of the authority of we the people of this country.”
Cruz also criticized President Barack
Obama for backing repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, saying that he was
“more interested in promoting homosexuality in the military than he
is in defeating our enemy.”
