Senator Ted Cruz (Republican from Texas) has had his Twitter account ‘outed’ for ‘liking’ sexually suggestive content. His explanation? “It was a staffing issue, and it was inadvertent, it was a mistake, it was not a deliberate action”.
Let’s not forget, Cruz in the early 2000’s as Solicitor General of Texas filed a 76-page brief defending a law that prohibits ‘the advertisement and sale of dildos, artificial vaginas, and other obscene devices’.
This same week, U.S. officials found evidence implicating a Vatican diplomat in a child-pornography case, leading officials in Rome to recall the priest to the Holy See. We’re not talking about SEX, per say. We’re talking about the hypocrisy of those in positions of power.
