You can see why Cruz would be disappointed in a state wanting to be welcoming, supportive, kind, and loving because, of course, none of those values are consistent with Christianity. At least that’s not the way Cruz sees it.
House Bill 757 would have given faith-based organizations in Georgia the right to deny services to members of the LGBT community. Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal announced Monday he would veto the bill. Deal said, “I do not think we have to discriminate against anyone to protect the faith-based community in Georgia, of which I and my family have been a part of for all of our lives.”
Predictably Ted Cruz, who was recently accused of having five extra marital affairs by the National Inquirer, couldn’t let this go without a comment. Cruz was very disappointed “to see Governor Deal in Georgia side with leftist activists.” Cruz used this opportunity to bewail that religious liberty used to “enjoy bipartisan support, but the modern Democratic party has determined that religious faith is inconsistent with its political objectives.” Yes, it’s a terrible shame that the Democratic party is invested in equality, civil rights, and the separation of church and state. He added that he thought this was “shameful.” This coming from a man who recently remarked that “Trump may be a rat, but I have no desire to copulate with him” and who attempted to get Mormon voters to in Utah to vote for him by slut shaming Melania Trump.
Hopefully Gov. Deal will recover from non-rat humper Cruz’s critical statements by continuing to enjoy the many businesses that threatened to leave if the bill passed including Disney and AMC. Other companies such as Apple, Intel, Twitter, Viacom, 21st Century Fox, Lionsgate, Unilever, CBS, Starz, Netflix, Time Warner, CBS, The Weinstein Company, Sony, Comcast/NBCUniversal, MGM, STX Entertainment, and Open Road Films spoke out against the bill. Gov. Deal said he didn’t veto the bill because of corporate pressure, but because “the character of our state and the character of our people. Georgia is a welcoming state. It is full of loving, kind and generous people. … I intend to do my part to keep it that way.”
