This just blows the mind—Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is suddenly courting rich gays in Manhattan. Specifically, he and his wife attended a dinner hosted by two prominent gay business partners and hoteliers—Mati Weiderpass and Ian Reisner. And here's a taste of what Cruz, who has railed against same-sex marriage, had to say, from reporter Maggie Haberman:
During the gathering, according to two attendees, Mr. Cruz said he would have no problem if one of his daughters was gay. He did not mention his opposition to same-sex marriage, saying only that marriage is an issue that should be left to the states.
Oh, so he's totally cool. I guess the fact that he sent a letter to "tens of thousands of pastors" last month urging them to take a stand against same-sex marriage was just a little slip of the finger.
"Will we be on the right side of history, the side occupied by the Author of history?" he wrote. "Will we discard an institution, ordained by God, which has brought so much stability and happiness to the human family? Or will we stand in its support?"
isn't the divorce rate around 40 or 50 %, how many marriages were by justice of the peace or city hall those people did not speak of religious tenets at that time, and what is he implying with that "human family" crack is he suggesting those that don't agree with him are not human???.  as for gay donors who the article says are hoteliers these guys are big business corporations they want to hold on and be free, free of regulation that protects us from them.  the Gay part is just a ploy to make him appear tolerant but the fact is he's republican and president or not he will do what they want not what he says,  remember Norquist?

that has not changed as it's always been puppet men no matter how history portrays them the were subject to the party and agreement with Dems.  no republican is an island unto himself.
