Ted Cruz shows off his religious bigots

by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer

Ted Cruz announced the creation of a 19-member 'Religious Liberty Advisory Council' on February 29. The group is supposed to advise him on how to combat threats to freedom of religion.

'I am honored to chair this council at such a critical time in the history of this nation,' Cruz said in a statement.

'Never before has religious freedom been more endangered than it is today under the policies of the Obama administration. We need a president who upon entering office will immediately begin reversing the damage done to our freedom to believe and our ability to live according to those beliefs.'

Among the religious liberty all-stars recruited by Cruz are:

Ryan Anderson, on staff at the right-wing think tank Heritage Foundation. According to Media Matters, 'Anderson routinely peddles false and misleading claims about the LGBT community and legal protections for LGBT people.'

Ken Blackwell, a right-wing Ohio politician who briefly served as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights in 1992 and 1993. Blackwell was the brains behind a successful bid to add an amendment barring same-sex marriage to the Ohio state constitution.

The Benham brothers, David and Jason. The Benhams made their money flipping houses and then torpedoed their own HTV show by calling LGBT people 'demonic' at a North Carolina prayer rally.

Bishop Harry Jackson of Hope Christian Church, who sued the District of Columbia in an unsuccessful bid to get the district's same-sex marriage law repealed.

Kelly Shackelford, president and CEO of First Liberty Institute, who has a history of filing frivolous lawsuits against federal agencies.

Carol Swain, a Vanderbilt University professor who has been labeled 'an apologist for white supremacists' by Southern Poverty Law Center lawyer Mark Potok.

And pastors Jim Garlow, Mark Harris, and Jack Hibbs.

Anderson and Blackwell also appear on the 'Marriage and Family Advisory Board' assembled by Cruz's rival for the Republican presidential nomination, Marco Rubio.

Rubio's group includes local anti-Gay celebrity Joseph Backholm, the architect of Referendum 74 to repeal marriage rights, and a new effort to bar Transgender Washingtonians from gender-appropriate restrooms.
