Brian Tashman, of the Right Wing Watch, reported that Ted Cruz is once against touting "mandatory gay marriage:"

Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, the Republican presidential candidate who believes that the gay "jihad" may soon lead to the imprisonment of pastors and the end of free speech, told a right-wing radio host yesterday that the legalization of same-sex marriage represents the greatest threat to religious liberty in the history of the United States. [...] Cruz said that the fights over "religious freedom" laws in Indiana and Arkansas were "heartbreaking" examples of how the Democratic Party has "gotten so extreme and so radical in its devotion to mandatory gay marriage that they've decided there's no room for the religious liberty protected under the First Amendment."

Here is the full interview if you want to listen to more of Ted Cruz's lies on marriage:

This is not the first time he used the phrase "mandatory gay marriage." Of course, a Supreme Court decision would simply allow any two consenting adults to be recognized under the law.

Twitter has started to respond to Cruz's bogus claims in a fun way, check it out after the jump.

Some men are actually already proposing to each other and accepting!

We will continue to update with twitter's reaction. Feel free to send any tips to [email protected]
