Ted Cruz Then And Now
According to Senator Ted Cruz, President Obama is terrible for disregarding the law, while Kim Davis is to be commended.
“The pattern we’ve seen under President Obama, disregarding the law, is really one of the most troubling aspects of this presidency, When he disagrees with the law…he simply refuses to comply with it.”
— Sen. Ted Cruz, quoted by The Hill, in January 2014.
“Today, judicial lawlessness crossed into judicial tyranny, Today, for the first time ever, the government arrested a Christian woman for living according to her faith. This is wrong. This is not America. I stand with Kim Davis. Unequivocally. I stand with every American that the Obama Administration is trying to force to chose between honoring his or her faith or complying with a lawless court decision.”
— Cruz, quoted by the Dallas Morning News today, on the Kentucky clerk who refuses to issue marriage certificates to gay couples.
