Brody File Video Exclusive: Ted Cruz Warns that Charging Pastors with Hate Speech Is Next Step


Sen. Ted Cruz tells The Brody File that America is going down a dangerous road regarding what is considered “hate speech,” saying the next step could very well be charging pastors with a crime for speaking in support of traditional marriage from the pulpit.

We’ve provided a partial transcription. You’ll need to watch the entire video clip to get his full comments.

The Brody File team spoke with Cruz on Friday in Iowa after he spoke at the Pastors and Pews events in Des Moines. A partial transcription is below along with the video.

Sen. Ted Cruz: If you look at other nations that have gone down the road towards gay marriage, that’s the next step where it gets enforced. It gets enforced against Christian pastors who decline to perform gay marriages, who speak out and preach biblical truths on marriage.

This is baseless fearmongering.

I have heard several different commentators make the accusation that the Bible contains hate-speech. It would follow that those who take seriously the mandate to declare God's Word as truth with certainty and conviction become a target for the politically correct, "all truth is relative" crowd.

Dan, obviously doesn't know of what he speaks. Pastors have already been imprisoned in Sweden, Britain, and Canada for simply preaching a solid sermon on Romans chapter one. The sodomy police certainly don't want biblical truth about homosexuality to offend anyone.

Biblical truth? You mean that stuff they made up back in the Bronze Age?
