Remember last year when news broke that wingnut Justin Harris "rehomed" his adopted daughters with a child molester who's now serving hard time for raping one of them?

Ted Cruz is about to give him a "Power of Courage" award at a fundraising dinner being held in his honor.

I kid you not.

Arkansas State Sen. Justin Harris, a Republican, will be given the “Power of Courage” award by the Family Council Action Committee, a non-profit that is vocally anti-LGBT, the Arkansas Times reports. The awards will be given out Wednesday evening at a Cruz fundraiser dinner.

Another Republican, Rep. Charlene Fite, will also be honored with the award, which they are being given because they “demonstrated courage by standing strong in faith when situations were tough at the State Capitol and they did so with grace. They are consistently models of their Christian values in their homes, their communities, and their churches.”

What they are, are gay haters. There's nothing even a little bit Christian about them. You don't give away kids like they're last year's Christmas presents, and you sure as hell don't give them to child molesters. Justin Harris has no courage at all, and neither does Ted Cruz. But Cruz is a greedy bastard, so he'll be there to oversee the ceremonies.

This really makes me sick.
