Alyssa Milano, the actor turned activist turned Twitter aficionado, wants to sit down with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) to talk about gun laws, abortion, and Scripture.
It all started when the former “Charmed” star asked someone to share with her where in Scripture it states the freedom to own a firearm is a “God-given right.”
About an hour later, Cruz answered, providing references to Scripture.
The Texas senator pointed Milano to Exodus 22:2, in which it is written: “If a thief is caught in the act of breaking into a house and is struck and killed in the process, the person who killed the thief is not guilty of murder.”
Cruz noted that the following verse explains it would be murder had it not been a clear case of self defense.
While Milano didn’t respond to any of the specifics in Cruz’s 10-tweet thread, she did say she would “love to come in and meet with you on the gun issue and many other issues that include life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
She went on to say she wanted to stream their conversation on social media “so the American people can hear your bulls*** [first] hand.”
Ironically, Milano also referenced 1 Peter 4:8, which reads: “Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.”
Cruz, for his part, agreed, telling the progressive actor he’d be happy to meet with her and looks forward to having a discussion “in the spirit of 1 Peter 4:8 as you suggest.”
“Despite our political differences,” he added, “that might help resolve the discord in our nation.”
At the time this story was published, it didn’t appear Milano and Cruz had agreed on a meeting time. The actor stated she will be in Washington, D.C., next week.
