| by Michael Allen

During a GOP senate debate in Dallas,Texas, candidates Craig James and Ted Cruz attacked former Dallas mayor Tom Leppert for marching in a gay pride parade (video below).

In an effort to portray Leppert as out of touch with conservative values, James and Cruz pledged to stay away from gay festivities if elected.

James also said that being gay is a choice that will be punished by God: "But in that case right there, they are going to have to answer to the Lord for their actions. We should not give benefits to those civil unions."
