The Obama administration’s malice toward traditional marriage is of historic proportions, according to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).
Cruz lamented the use of court decisions to overturn same-sex marriages bans on a conservative radio show Monday, Politico reported, but he also wagged his finger at President Barack Obama.
“But it’s also manifested from the federal government, with the Obama administration,” Cruz said. “This administration is the most hostile-to-traditional-marriage administration this country has ever seen.”
As evidence, Cruz pointed to the administration’s decision to recognize gay marriages performed in Utah between a federal court’s decision to overturn that state’s ban and the Supreme Court’s order to stop them.
“The Obama administration came into Utah and said, ‘We’re not going to listen to what the U.S. Supreme Court said. We, the federal government, are going to recognize marriages in the state of Utah and Utah state law explicitly does not recognize as marriage,'” Cruz said, “and that was really, in my view, an abuse of power.”
