They have very few viewers, and they are a radical and extreme partisan outlet.”
Cruz also referred to the U.S. Supreme Court’s upcoming decision on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage and said Democrats are “so devoted to mandatory gay marriage that they’ve decided there’s no room for religious liberty.”
Steele also asked the senator: “Do you have a personal animosity against gay Americans?”
