Sen. Ted Cruz says President Barack Obama’s administration is “hostile” to traditional marriage, calling it the most hostile White House in history.
The Texas Republican has been plugging his State Marriage Defense Act, a bill he introduced with Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) to require the federal government to respect state laws defining marriage between a man and a woman, on a tour of conservative radio. On Monday, Cruz told David Barton and Rick Green’s “Wallbuilders Live” that there’s been a “sad trend” in recent years of advocacy groups using courts to challenge traditional marriage laws.
“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.”
