Cruz: Pastors Could Soon Face Hate Speech Charges

Ad Feedback

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz says America is going down a dangerous road regarding what is considered "hate speech."

The Texas lawmaker warned the next step could be charging pastors with a crime for speaking in support of traditional marriage from the pulpit.

"If you look at other nations that have gone down the road toward gay marriage -- that's the next step where it gets enforced," he told CBN News's David Brody.

"It gets enforced against Christian pastors who decline to perform gay marriages, who speak out and preach biblical truths on marriage and that has been defined elsewhere as hate speech," he continued.

"And I think there is no doubt that the advocates who are driving this effort in the United States want to see that in the same place," he said.
