Senator Ted Cruz, a republican from Texas, had some choice words about the new bill codifying federal recognition of same-sex marriages on his podcast. The Senate Democrats are trying to codify same-sex marriages since the overturning of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court this past summer issued a shocking reminder to the fragility of rights in America, especially ones that are granted by the Supreme Court.

CRUZ: “This bill is about empowering, the Biden IRS to target every Church, and school, and university, and charity in America that refuses to knuckle under to their view of gay marriage. I think it's incredibly dangerous. And yet, Michael you asked me, is it going to pass? I don't know. Every Democrat is going to vote for it and there have been multiple Republican Senators who said they will too. I don't know if they’ll get to 60 or not. But given the threat to religious liberty, I think it would be profoundly dangerous if this passes.
