Ted Cruz on Families & Children



Hispanic values: faith, family & patriotism

The values in our [Hispanic] community are faith, family, patriotism. I campaigned the same here in Houston or Dallas as I did in the Rio Grande Valley, defending conservative principles, telling my father's story of coming to America with $100 dollars in his underwear, not speaking English, washing dishes, having hopes and dreams for the American dream.

Defend Judeo-Christian values against liberal fascism

Cruz said Democrats had gone to extremes in their persecution of Christians: "Today's Democratic Party has decided there is no room for Christians in today's Democratic Party. There is a liberal fascism that is going after Christian believers," Cruz said. "It is heartbreaking," Cruz argued. "But it is so extreme, it is waking people up."

"We need leaders who will stand unapologetically in defense of the Judeo-Christian values upon which America was built," he concluded.

Opposes the unrelenting assault on traditional marriage

Sen. Ted Cruz cast himself as a leading Republican opponent of same-sex marriage during an appearance before a crowd of evangelical Christians in Des Moines. Cruz described the ongoing shift toward legal recognition for gay couples as an "unrelenting assault on traditional marriage," and castigated judges who have struck down prohibitions for "ignoring their oaths, ignoring the Constitution and legislating from the bench."

The issue is one that Cruz said distinguishes him from other potential candidates in what looks to be a crowded 2016 presidential field. While others have de-emphasized or dropped altogether their opposition to same-sex marriage, he said, he would continue to make it a priority.

Cruz delivered his speech to a crowd of about 200 Iowa religious leaders and their spouses behind closed doors in a hotel ballroom in Des Moines.
