Hate is too great a burden to bear

This morning, failed presidential candidate Ted Cruz shared this heartwarming message of support to the LGBTQ community.
For all the Democrats who are loud champions of the gay and lesbian community whenever there is a culture battle waging, now is the opportunity to speak out against an ideology that calls for the murder of gays and lesbians... This is wrong, it is evil, and we must all stand against it. 
It's super touching that Ted Cruz is willing to speak out against violence against gays in a way that just happens to further his own political ends. I suppose this means he's sorry for that time a few months ago when he spoke at a convention organized by Kevin Swanson, who openly advocates, at every possible opportunity, the death penalty for gays.
Well I've got news for you, Ted Cruz. You can't drown us in your hate. 
"Love wins" wasn't just a slogan, it was a promise. The LGBTQ community and its allies have fought and died for the right to love. We will not fall to hate. 

Title is a quotation from MLK
