Online Battle Erupts In Response To Ted Cruz: ‘Mandatory Same-Sex Marriage’ Comments

Cruz-Wars

So, we published an article about Ted Cruz and his asinine comments regarding “mandatory same-sex marriage” last week, and silly us – we decided to post it on our new, but rather tiny Google+ page. [Please take the time to follow us there, if you aren’t already. As you will soon see, we could use some assistance there from sane-minded liberals and progressives.]



Lo and behold, our email was bombarded daily with notices, that continue to this day, of activity on the page – mainly in the form of bickering back and forth between those who are rational and raging conservatives and trolls.

We had a similar reaction on our Liberals Unite Facebook page, but bear in mind – we have plenty of reinforcements there, to the tune of nearly 87K fans as opposed to our mere 20 followers on Google+.

There were some noteworthy comments by liberals such as Robert, who pointed out that writing Ted Cruz off as dumb would be a mistake:

[P]roblem is, he’s not dumb. That’s too easy an out. Even one of his liberal law school professors said he was one of the smartest guys to come through there. So that leaves you with dishonest, fear-mongering, etc. Saying he’s dumb basically gives him a pass as simply being stupid. He’s not, and therefore he should know better.

Then there as Timothy, who didn’t seem to have actually read the article, but nevertheless had a valid point – to some extent – about the process of change:

Most [Cruz] likely he refers to the Federal government mandating the recognition of same-sex marriage on the states.
 
The constitution is what needs to be amended to make what is being talked about legit. For instance, we went the wrong way about the change wrought by Brown vs. Board of education. It should have started as legislation, not a mandate from the courts.
 
Process is what is important when it comes to these things.



However, a vast majority of the comments were made by raging conservatives supporting Ted Cruz and his hate-fest – some did their best to outdo Cruz such as the following example that runs contrary to all scientific research on the matter:

Cruz is spot on. Gay marriage WILL be forced on Americans along with the foolish idea that two parents of the same sex can raise a child as effectively as a mother and a father can.
 
To be discriminate about Gay marriage is prudent. To say it is equal to opposite sex marriage is just wrong.
 
Bush was right. There should have been a Constitutional Amendment saying marriage is between one man and one woman.

As Boston University reported back in 2013 when the Supreme Court took up the issue of gay marriage, three decades of research shows that the children of gay parents are doing just fine.

[Benjamin] Siegel, a School of Medicine professor of pediatrics, coauthored a report, published by the American Academy of Pediatrics the week before the court case, arguing that three decades of research concur that kids of gay parents are doing just fine.
 
“Many studies have demonstrated that children’s well-being is affected much more by their relationships with their parents, their parents’ sense of competence and security, and the presence of social and economic support for the family than by the gender or the sexual orientation of their parents,” Siegel writes with coauthor Ellen Perrin, a Tufts University professor of pediatrics and director of developmental and behavioral pediatrics.

Then there were those like Mary, who seemed to forget that denial is only a river:

Looks like Cruz has the Dems running scared or all these lies wouldn’t be floating around about him. I hope he wins!

We’re not quite sure what the “lies” are she refers to since Cruz and his fans are the ones putting a twisted spin on reality – i.e. facts.

David took a particularly odd, and at least to us confusing path of logic:
 
This is one liberal post that I agree with.
 
No American would support same-sex marriage due to the falsehood of it alone.
 
Using the Republican word “rights” in order to push their left-wing practice only makes it more pathetic.
 
How the hell are idiots against us right-wingers, yet need to use our word in order to “protect” their filthy practice?
 
It’s quite amusing to say the least.
 
It’s clear to me that left-wingers couldn’t succeed with their gay marriage without the right-wing…hahahahahahaha!

However, that being noted, this post may be our favorite. I mean come on – kindergarteners…. who makes up this stuff?!?!

No it’s you liberals telling us what to accept how marriage should be how people’s attitude towards it should be, it’s you liberals who promote sex Ed in kindergarten and teach about the great homosexuals in our history. The only thing mandatory is that you want us to accept the love of homosexuals by approving their marriage. You’re the ones telling us who to accept, who to love, and what’s the standard. What people do in their bedroom doesn’t matter but you’re forcing us to accept marriage completely contradictory to religious beliefs and the values of civilization for thousands of years
