Okay, so there are a lot of reasons — a LOT of reasons — to pronounce Ted Cruz an Asshat, but for today I want to talk about Teddy’s recent statement that he thinks it’s just dandy for Christian business owners to be able to discriminate against The Gays and other if they believe the Bible tells them so:
“Everyone has to reconcile their own faith with how they interact with others, and that’s a choice you’ve got to make based on your understanding of biblical teachings and based on the best understanding you can come to it.”
Now, to be honest, I am no Bible scholar — You don’t say! — but I never knew the Bible taught discrimination; I never knew the Bible talk you to turn people away. Maybe I’m glad I don’t follow the teachings of that Good Book.
“I’m very much a believer that the scripture teaches that you hate the sin and love the sinner, and so, you know, from my perspective I am perfectly willing to interact with anybody. Look, I work in the U.S. Congress. But at the same time, I don’t think the law should be forcing Americans to violate their religious faith.”
First off, I am so f**king tired of that ‘hate the sin, love the sinner’ bull shiz, because, according to your Bible, Teddy, everyone is a sinner, and yet you only want to discriminate against The Gays for their sins. Seriously?
That’s why Ted Cruz, and his ilk, are Asshats, because they twist the words of the Bible to say it encourages and promotes and condones discrimination.
Fromm what I’ve heard, Jesus never turned his back on anyone.
