Just hours before Ted Cruz’s Defend Religious Liberty rally in Iowa, actress and LGBT agitator Ellen Page made a mistake that many have made before her. She challenged the 2016 Republican presidential candidate and constitutional conservative to a debate.
It was a huge mistake. When will they learn not to argue with Cruz?
Reminiscent of last month’s altercation between Ted Cruz and a Code Pink radical who got in his face to challenge Cruz’s opposition to the Obama-Kerry Iran deal, Cruz destroyed the leftist actress, killing her kindly with sharp logic that left her confused and utterly defeated.
At the Iowa State Fair on Friday, as Cruz was barbecuing pork chops over an open grill, gaystapo member Ellen Page confronted Cruz over “the persecution of gays in the workplace and LGBT rights,” and ABC News captured the heated exchange.
“What about the question about LGBT people being fired for being gay-trans?” Page, a lesbian who has a new show on Vice called “Gaycation,” where she travels around the world to spread LGBT propaganda.
“Well, what we’re seeing right now, we’re seeing Bible-believing Christians being persecuted for living according to their faith,” Cruz answered.
“You’re discriminating against LGBT people,” Page said. “Well, would you use that argument in segregation?”
Cruz smoothly transitioned to the discrimination of a Christian couple, Dick and Betty Odgaard, a Christian couple who had to close their wedding chapel after gaystapo activists sued them and, with a liberal judge’s blessing, destroyed their First Amendment rights and religious liberty.
“Imagine, hypothetically, you had a gay florist and imagine two evangelical Christians wanted to get married and the gay florist decided, ‘You know what, I disagree with your faith, I don’t want to provide flowers,’” Cruz said.
“I would say they should provide the flowers,” Page interjected, without saying whether government force should be used in the process.
“And I would say the gay florist has every right to say, if I disagree with your faith and don’t want to participate…you know what? There are lots of other people to buy flowers from,” Cruz said.
“No one has the right to force someone else to abandon their faith and their conscience,” Cruz asserted. “We don’t have the right to force a Jewish Rabbi to conduct a Christian wedding ceremony. We don’t have the right to force a Muslim Imam to conduct a Jewish wedding ceremony,” Cruz contended.
“We are a country that respects pluralism and diversity and there is this liberal intolerance that says that anyone that dares follow a Biblical teaching of marriage, that is the union of one man and one woman, must be persecuted, must be persecuted — must be fined and must be driven out of business,” Cruz informed the historically ignorant Page.
Cruz then exposed the lesbian actress and the left’s utter hypocrisy with a powerful and brutal truth bomb that left Page looking imbecilic.
“Do you know where gay people are being persecuted right now?” Cruz asked Page.
“All over the world,” Page piped in.
“ISIS is executing gay people. Iran is executing homosexuals. And from the left you hear complete silence about Iran hanging homosexuals. And yet, the Obama administration is sending over $100 billion to a regime that murders homosexuals. That is fundamentally wrong,” Cruz said.
“Does that trouble you at all, that you draw a moral equivalence between Christians in Jamaica and radical Islamic terrorists and ISIS that are beheading children?” Cruz asked a clearly now confused Page. “…They’re not morally equivalent. Murder is murder is murder, and it is wrong, and it is wrong across the board.”
Why does the Obama administration not stand against this?” Cruz asked the perplexed Page.
“I don’t know, I’d love to talk to Obama about it,” Page replied.
“Then we’re agreed!” Cruz shot back.
“No, no we’re not, don’t do that,” the actress said.
“We’re agreed! Ma’am, we’ve had a long discussion,” Cruz said, as Page walked away with her proverbial tail tucked between her legs.
You will notice that Page and other hypocritical gaystapo leftists never protest the Obama-Kerry Iran deal, despite the horrific real persecution of gay people in Iran.
