Ted Cruz was confronted by actress Ellen Page over what she suggested was the discrimination of gays and the larger LGBT community. Cruz quickly turned it around on her, pointing out that it’s Christians who are being persecuted by gays. He also made the point that a gay baker shouldn’t be forced to make a cake for a Christian wedding, pointing out that it’s not just Christians who he is fighting for to be able to follow their conscience. Of course she disagreed, saying the gay baker or Muslim baker or Jewish baker should all be forced to make cakes for everyone. So he basically got her to admit that she’d force everyone to violate their conscience.
Cruz handled Page and the subject very well.
