Ted Cruz: Pray the Supreme Court rejects marriage equality

“I would encourage everyone here to be lifting up in prayer the court that they not engage in an act of naked and lawless judicial activism, tearing down the marriage laws adopted pursuant to the Constitution.”

— Senator Ted Cruz, Republican candidate for President, speaking at the Faith and Freedom Coalition.

The Texas Tribune reports that Cruz told his audience “Religious liberty is under assault,” with regards an impending decision by the Supreme Court on same-sex marriage.

Cruz also touched on several instances of marriage equality being supported by businesses, including Arkansas and Indiana.

“Today’s Democratic Party, aided by their friends in the media, and aided even more by big business that decided it was good business to throw Christians overboard and abandon religious liberty, pounded upon leaderships there,” he said.
