Attacking Ted Cruz’s Dad—How Low Can the Left Go?

Maybe they’re running out of material or maybe just sinking to a new low, but leftist media is now attacking Ted Cruz’s father for his scheduled appearance at the World Congress of Families.

What is the anti-gay, hate-filled theme of this year’s conference that liberal news sources shame Rafael Cruz for attending?

World Congress of Families 2015: The value of life in all its stages and conditions.

The World Congress of Families also promotes a nasty concept known as the “natural family,” which “Right Wing Watch” derides for being open to more children, “young women growing into wives homemakers, and mothers,” and “young men growing into husbands, homebuilders, and fathers.”

Cruz will be joining a host of other vitriolic speakers featured at the conference this year, including MLK’s niece Dr. Alveda King, Theresa Okafor from the Foundation for African Cultural Heritage, and the International Children’s Choir, performing in their native countries’ costumes.

Overall, the fact that Cruz supports “schooling that gives positive images of chastity, marriage, fidelity, motherhood, fatherhood, husbandry, and housewifery” should send us all screaming for the hills. Look out, America. If his son is elected to the presidency, we might really be seeing the beginning of the end.
