Pundit Amanda Marcotte: Cruz’s Iowa Victory Delights ‘Skin-Crawlingly Creepy Folks in the Religious Right’

Posted on 02 February 2016

Much of the left is obsessed with the religious right’s supposed obsession with sex. Exhibit number whatever was Marcotte’s Tuesday piece in Salon about Ted Cruz’s win in Iowa’s Republican caucuses.

Marcotte alleged that Cruz’s supporters in the Hawkeye State featured “a veritable rogue’s gallery of every creepy straight guy who claims he loves Jesus but has his eyes fixed firmly on the crotches of America.” Moreover, she griped that Cruz’s evangelical-driven triumph meant that the GOP “will still have to pay tribute to the nasty crews that use Jesus as a cover to push their lifelong obsession with controlling other people’s sex lives, especially if those people are female or queer.”
