There is a nice article over at Noisy Room titled, ‘Ted Cruz: Rise Of The Evangelical & Constitutional Warrior’. It made me think.
We have been watching Senator Cruz for some time but with blinders on. We see him as a Constitutional lawyer, someone who is dedicated to our founding documents and the people who wrote them.
But there is so much more to Cruz. Almost no one is talking about his love of God. The left and the media are intentionally not bringing it up. Because we get most of our news from them neither are we. But Cruz has been arranging meetings at all levels among the religious leaders and followers wherever he goes. From the article:
Ted Cruz has made the evangelical vote a cornerstone of his political campaign for the presidency in 2016. This week he will launch a 50 state campaign to defund the butchers of Planned Parenthood. It is a move that is sure to be wildly popular among conservatives. His father, Rafael Cruz, must be incredibly proud of this.
Cruz invited more than 100,000 pastors via email over the weekend to take part in conference calls with him starting this week, where they will be given details on a plan to mobilize church attendees in every congressional district beginning on August 30th. This followed Cruz’s Rally for Religious Liberty that drew a crowd of over 3,000 to Iowa last week.”
This is a big deal and almost no one outside of his guest lists is paying attention. If we continue to ignore his work he will fail. We have long wished for, prayed for, and bemoaned the lack of a candidate who would follow the laws of the land and follow God’s laws. Here he is, folks. Your prayers have been answered. It’s now our turn to do our part. Again, the closing paragraph from the article:
You wonder why we have a federal government that comes after our free-speech rights, that comes after our religious liberty, that comes after life, that comes after marriage, that comes after our values,” Cruz said, blaming that state of affairs again on the 54 million evangelicals who stayed home during the 2012 presidential election. “I’m here to tell you,” Cruz said, “we will stay home no longer.” Ted Cruz is the evangelical and constitutional warrior we have waited for. Now, it’s our turn to fight for our freedoms and our faith.”
