NBC Host Gets Shut Down After Asking Ted Cruz This Absurd Question About Marriage

Presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, appeared on NBC’s Today Monday to discuss among other things his opposition to the Supreme Court’s ruling on ‘gay marriage.’ Today co-host Savannah Guthrie pressed Cruz on remarks he made in an interview with The Texas Tribune, contending that Texas county clerks should not have to issue marriage licenses based on religious grounds. “[O]ne thing you also said was that you would support a Texas state clerk who refused to issue a license to a gay couple on religious grounds,” Guthrie began. “Let me ask you this, if a state clerk refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple, would you agree with that, too?” “Well, there’s no religious backing for that,” Cruz answered, before being interrupted by Guthrie. “But you know that in the Loving vs. Virginia case, which is – struck down the bans on interracial marriage, they used religious arguments to justify that,” Guthrie noted.
