AUSTIN, Texas (LifeSiteNews) – U.S. Senator Ted Cruz has condemned the Supreme Court decision to legalize gay marriage as “clearly wrong.” 

During a July 16 episode of his podcast Verdict, Cruz spoke with conservative pundit Liz Wheeler regarding the legal vulnerabilities of Obergefell v. Hodges, the landmark 2015 case that allowed for the nationwide legalization of same-sex marriage.  

 

The junior U.S. Senator for Texas made these remarks just weeks after the Supreme Court overturned Roe, the 1973 decision that legalized abortion. 

Cruz stated that both the Roe and Obergefell cases “ignored two centuries of our nation’s history. Marriage was always an issue that was left to the states.” 

“We saw states before Obergefell that were moving. Some states were moving to allow gay marriage. Other states were moving to allow civil partnerships,” he continued. “There were different standards that the states were adopting, and had the court not ruled in Obergefell, the democratic process would have continued to operate.” 

The senator argued that the Supreme Court overrode states’ individual rights through the Obergefell ruling which forced each state to recognize and legitimize gay ‘marriage’.  

“The court said, ‘No, we know better than you guys do.’ Now every state must sanction and permit gay marriage,” Cruz said. “I think that decision was clearly wrong when it was decided. It was the court overreaching.”

If you are not aware of the foreign security threats implicated in the "Hunter Biden Laptop Story" — and what they might mean for America's national security and foreign geopolitical affairs — that’s by design. 

You were never meant to discover the contents compromising President Joe Biden, and for good reason. The mainstream media kept you ignorant on purpose.  

In fact, the New York Post was censored by Twitter, Facebook, and all of Big Tech for even breaking the story that Hunter Biden’s laptop existed. 

The New York Times, Washington Post, and the entire mainstream media called any reference to the story “Russian disinformation." 

THAT’S WHY AMERICA MUST INSIST THAT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA REPORT THE TRUTH ABOUT THE BIDEN FAMILY AND THE CONTENTS OF HUNTER’S LAPTOP! 

SIGN: Tell the Mainstream Media that viewers demand transparency on the Bidens NOW!

Enough is enough — America refuses to be kept wondering about our compromised national security, corrupt sweetheart business deals, and pay-to-play schemes detailed in the Hunter Biden Laptop. 

LIFESITENEWS EXPOSED THE HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP STORY HERE 

“Polling taken in April shows that nearly two-thirds of Americans believe that the president has been compromised by his family’s shady business dealings with China,” LifeSiteNews reported on July 1, 2022.  

Even CNN has finally begun to admit that the Hunter Biden Laptop is a serious problem

  • Illegal gun purchase
  • Sweetheart foreign Ukraine deals 
  • Political access to (then) Vice-President Joe Biden 
  • Federal probes and investigations  

Voters MUST know for whom they are voting. Sound the alarm with our new petition! SIGN TODAY! 

The First Amendments protects a Free Press to report the truth and protect the American people — but the mainstream media has betrayed its viewers, spinning pro-communist and pro-globalist narratives that are HURTING voters! 

Voters MUST learn about President Joe Biden’s compromised business dealings with China, Russia, Ukraine, and so many others — all pointing to the Hunter Biden Laptop. 

DEMAND THE TRUTH: WE WILL NO LONGER BE MISLED BY THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA!  

Media executives must learn that their viewership will continue tanking as long as executives run cover for their far-left base.  

Tell media executives that you will NO LONGER watch or trust their network until they fully reveal the contents of the Hunter Biden Laptop! 

It is not enough to simply change the channel. We must leave a parting shot to mainstream media executives telling them WHY consumers are refusing to watch any longer. 

SIGN NOW: DO NOT LET THE MEDIA SPIN THEIR OWN FAILURE BY DENYING US TRANSPARENCY! 

This is the only way to save the future of the media and win back a trustworthy Free Press for future generations.  

There is no telling what the mainstream media will continue to hide, deny, and deflect if they decide to run cover for the most powerful man in the world — the President of the United States. 

*** There is no time to lose—we refuse to let important information remain hidden from the American voters any longer! *** 

The Hunter Biden Laptop story is the single greatest piece of evidence indicating that America’s national security is likely compromised.  

We the People deserve to know the truth! 

STAND WITH THE PEOPLE: SIGN OUR PETITION ASAP!

The senator remained uncertain if Obergefell will be overturned since abortion and gay marriage are “qualitatively different.” He explained that the Supreme Court argued that “Roe is different because it’s the only one of the cases that involves taking a human life.”  

Cruz’s comments echo those of pro-life Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. In his concurring opinion in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case that reversed Roe v. Wade, Thomas agreed that Roe should be reversed and argued that the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) should next revisit other “substantive due process” cases. 

He specifically mentioned Lawrence v. Texas, which struck down laws against sodomy, Griswold v. Connecticut, which struck down laws against married couples using contraception, and Obergefell v. Hodges, which declared a right to same-sex “marriage.”
