NO, BUT A PROMINENT EVANGELIST SAYS THE TEXAS SENATOR HAS BEEN “CALLED AND ANOINTED” TO BE PRESIDENT
We published a report earlier this week about U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas chasing the endorsement of status quo “Republican” governor Nikki Haley of South Carolina.
But that’s not the Palmetto State nod he really covets …
Cruz wants to be the candidate of choice among evangelical voters. He especially wants to win over those residing in the vote-rich socially conservative Upstate region of this pivotal “First in the South” presidential primary state.
So who better to endorse him than … well … God.
That happened (sort of) earlier this month, courtesy of charismatic televangelist Kenneth Copeland. The 79-year-old preacher welcomed Cruz’s father, pastor Rafael Cruz, on his broadcast by saying that his son had been “anointed” by God to be the nation’s next president.
“I believe, with all my heart, that his son is called and anointed to be the next president of the United States,” Copeland said by way of introducing the elder Cruz.
“God has raised him up for such a time as this,” Copeland added.
Copeland and his attendants then proceeded to “lay hands” on the elder Cruz as a way of blessing him.

Look, we have no problem with Christian candidates – even those who overtly discuss their faith. At the end of the day that’s their right – and it ought to be protected. Hell, we’ve even praised Cruz’s campaign for its focus on the issue of religious liberty.
But when aspiring elected officials seek to impose their beliefs on others – or even worse, when they invoke the divine right of kings in affirmation of their values (the way U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford of South Carolina often does) – we have a real problem with that.
Seriously: There’s a big difference between a candidate who says “since you asked, I’m a Christian (or a Jew, Muslim or atheist) – let me tell you why” and one you says “I’ve been chosen by the one true God to rule over you and my judgments are therefore infallible.”
Judeo-Christian values are positive influences, no doubt … but while they make for a good governing philosophy, they cannot form the basis of a state religion.
Otherwise we’re every bit as nuts as the radical jihadists.
Anyway … we’ll be delving into this (and Rafael Cruz’s “Dominionist” preachings) in future posts. Stay tuned …
Just one more reason to oppose Cruz.
Can anybody come up this one reason TO support Cruz?
So, Cruz is the choice of the American Taliban?
They do know he is not a natural born American, don’t they?
Seems like God would have taken care of that little tid bit before he did all that ‘anointing’.
Dear God, hope you get the letter and
I pray you can make it better down here
I don’t mean a big reduction in the price of beer
But all the people that you made in your image
See them starving on their feet
‘Cause they don’t get enough to eat from God
I can’t believe in you
Dear God, sorry to disturb you but
I feel that I should be heard loud and clear
We all need a big reduction in amount of tears
And all the people that you made in your image
See them fighting in the street
‘Cause they can’t make opinions meet about God
I can’t believe in you
Did you make disease and the diamond blue?
Did you make mankind after we made you?
And the Devil too!
Dear God don’t know if you noticed but
Your name is on a lot of quotes in this book
And us crazy humans wrote it, you should take a look
And all the people that you made in your image
Still believing that junk is true
Well I know it ain’t, and so do you
I can’t believe in
I don’t believe
I won’t believe in heaven or hell
No saints, no sinners, no devil as well
No pearly gates, no thorny crown
You’re always letting us humans down
The wars you bring, the babes you drown
Those lost at sea and never found
And it’s the same the whole world ’round
The hurt I see helps to compound
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost
Is just somebody’s unholy hoax
And if you’re up there you’ll perceive
That my heart’s here upon my sleeve
If there’s one thing I don’t believe in
the thing is when we judge God and any believer is going to do that in some way or another, our tools we develop for judgement come in our lifetime, God is about eternity, and we can not develop the tools in a life time to make judgements about eternal outcomes. thats the long of it, the short of it is, no matter how shitty a life on earth was, i doubt they are really gonna care about it a billion years from now. i don’t have any idea what heaven is but as long as i don’t ever have to deal with assholes again, i’m gonna be content.
You realize god is not real, right?
Don’t waste your brain power worrying about it.
It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no God. ~Thomas Jefferson
i don’t worry about it, for me Christianity is the path i should take in my journey through this life, as far as our souls dying with our bodies, me and you don’t know.
Oh, I don’t. You just seem to waste a lot of time thinking about imaginary stuff. You should try comic books instead. Hotter chicks.
you know your brand of atheism is just as irritating as the zealots, that knock on doors trying to save you.
The truth can hurt sometimes. I guess this is one of thise times.
i break my arm that hurts, a pimple on my ass, thats irritating.
I believe in God but not religion unless music counts.Wow.FITSNEWS tackles theology…
You gotta be kidding me.
Yes. It’s a total joke. Everybody knows I hate Canadians!
God told me pogo has a special love for ‘anointing’ young boys. The police are looking into his ‘ministry’.
God blessed Cruz with the same blessing he gave McCain and Romney. LMAO!!!
What about me? Hey, where’d Donald go?!?
*pops another pill*
Every time a bell rings Bristol Palin gets another baby daddy.
Does the clanking of a beer bottle into a trash can count as a ‘ring’?
I hope he has real values….like the ones shared by the Duggars, Trump and me. We LOVE our children A LOT!
Some guy named df claimed he was going to put in a petition. I am glad they are chasing down the troll who keeps bothering Boz and Rocky and me.
Sucks to be him….or me!
Just as long as he has a better set of morals than Hillary, he will be OK.
Might be a turn-on to some, but to many it is a turn off. If I was a religious person, I might become somewhat indignant that a mere mortal is telling me that God has decided who should be President of the US. For me, that would be an insult, because God should not dwell on such trivialities. That is definitely below his pay grade. God has bigger shit to contend with.
People should ignore these religious people who like to transform themselves into political hucksters.
Nobody speaks for God on politics except Hillary, or so she thinks.
God loves the Broncos.
Superman sure didn’t have any affect on them.
He needs to grow up.
He sure know how to pout.
You two need a barely edible Papa John’s pizza and a shitty Budweiser.
Got some butt hurt do you?
Will you massage it? I’ll teabag you and laugh, just like my college days!
So that’s what you learned in college.
Yeah, and the Super Bowl is far more important than some Presidential election.
After all, we play the Super Bowl every year and are pestered by a Presidential election every four years. I think we should elect a new President every year, like the Super Bowl, then it would be important.
I was rooting for the Broncos, never could warm up to the Panthers.
I love it when people complain about Christians preaching to them…it’s so easy to just walk away, close your door or turn the page
Or to invite them in and make them question their beliefs by shooting holes into everything they preach to you. It’s easy and fun. Such weak people….
I would rather turn the other cheek and close the door but that’s just me. I don’t need to get self gratification at the expense of others, to me that is weak.
“I’ve been chosen by the one true God to rule over you and my judgments are therefore infallible.”…Who the hell do you think you are FITS, Spencer Tracy, this isn’t Inherit the Wind.
don’t the taliban and isis say the same thing?
They probably do, I haven’s talk to any to know for sure but which candidate has said what FITS quoted?
i don’t know, kinda brain dead just finished my exams to today heading to charleston next week to stand the coast guard exam and will have to change my handle to captain stumpknocker.
well we already did that when the first christians came here, just ask what is left of the Native Americans.
I get so tired of hearing that.
what ever, anyway thanks for the Jefferson quote
Too bad. It’s true, white settler.
No me pal I’ve got Cherokee blood running through my veins.
Sure you do, white settler.
Sure do she was a grandmother and part of the underground railroad.
What happened to you, then?
Such a let down.
I’m sure not to her.
If she could read, you would be.
I don’t know if she could read or not but you seem to know. Does God talk to you is that where you get all of your insight.
to clarify my statement it was not about pity for Indians, it was more about the harm man can do to another man in the name of god.
It’s been going on since the beginning of man.
yeah but people like attila the hun pretty much had a give me all your shit or i will kill all of you policy, he did not bring God into it.
There’s an exception to every rule.
As the high wizard, you’re the go-to guy in the satanic coven, so most people either call someone that they know in that coven or they’ll call because we did a lot of work with the Illuminati as well, so they’ll call them. This is all, obviously people that have to be in the know of these kinds of things, but you get invited to participate. The World Church of Satan isn’t the only organization that does satanic sacrifices.
FITSNEWS is Satan’s go-to-guy?
I’ll wait to see what Ernest Angley, God’s Man of the Hour on Earth, has to say.
I can hear him right now…is he still living?
touch your monitor and find out
He is. I used to watch him on Sunday mornings, right before Rat Patrol, when I was in law school. “Say baby, baaaby, baaaby.” Draw the evil out!!!
How many candidates have claimed God told them to run? I can think of about 9 in this and the 2012 presidential race and then there’s W. who claimed that too.
Why does God hate America so much?
At least Allah gave us a President who fixed the messes created by God’s chosen candidates and their buddies ;-)
Why does God hate America so much?
Bad outcomes = We are being punished for our sinfulness, taking prayer out of schools, the homo agenda, wickedness etc.
Good outcomes = We are special and chosen.
“Dominionist” another term designed to make Christians look like sneaky despots plotting a global overthrow. Here’s the thing though, we Christians, believe that scenario is already a sure thing and we that have nothing to say about it and frankly will have nothing to do with it but to rejoice when it finally comes.
have you ever noticed that in general the closer people think that day i gonna come the more radical their religion?
Absolutely, I have a friend who went over the edge when he decided he’d worked out “… the day and the hour…”. Gave it all away and went to the woods. Six weeks later we’d explained Matthew 24:36 and Mark 13:32 to him for the hundredth time he decided to come home. Fortunately, we were able to get most of his stuff back, get him some help and he’s moved on. There’s a huge problem with people visiting Israel and developing something called the Jerusalem Complex where they believe themselves to be Jesus, a prophet, a preacher…
Got him some help? “If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven.”
I take it evangelicals don’t really believe that part of the gospel. Maybe a misprint. Maybe Christ misspoke, because he surely did not mean what it sounds like he is saying. Just, not convenient for the modern world. I think I’ll run the risk I can squeeze through the eye of the needle.
The story of the “rich young ruler” can be found in Matthew 19:16–23, Mark 10:17–22, and Luke 18:18–23.
Luke 18:18–23 “…18 and a ruler asked him, “Good Teacher, what must I do to vinherit eternal life?” 19 And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone. 20 You know the commandments: ‘Do not commit adultery, Do not murder, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honor your father and mother.’ ” 21 And he said, “All these I have kept from my youth.” 22 When Jesus heard this, he said to him, “One thing you still lack. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have ztreasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” 23 But when he heard these things, he became very sad, for he was extremely rich…”
The guidance was specific to the “rich young ruler” not intended to be guidance for us all as it is never mentioned as a requirement to anyone else. The rich young ruler was looking for a formula for salvation rather than salvation itself. In order to point this out, Jesus pointed to his one true weakness his love of his wealth.
So, that is how you guys justify being rich and happy “Christians” while watching poor people starve. I get it, now. That story was an isolated incident. Just for that one guy. God wants us to be rich. So when Jesus said “love of money is the root of all evil.” And it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to get into heaven” He was just saying that to make poor people feel better. Thanks for letting me in on the secret.
Yeah, no, members of my church give “a tithe” that has two purposes, it pays the bills for the church and the vast majority is spent on missions in the local community and world wide.
When Timothy said that “…the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil…” (1 Timothy 6:10) he was warning us that we are to “..Love the Lord your God with all your heart and mind and spirit…” (Matthew 22:37) not money. No where does the Bible say it’s a sin to be rich, it’s what you do with the money and what the money does to you that matters.
Colonel, with all Christian love I tell you that your interpretation of this passage from Matthew is without a doubt the most theologically bankrupt, piece of nonsense I have heard in a long time. You have taken a powerful message from Christ about the obligation of Christians to do good in this world, and an admonition to concentrate on salvation of your soul and not wealth and power; and turned it into a meaningless piece historical trivia. I am appalled. This was not a message specific to the “rich young ruler.” This was a message to all who would follow Christ.
You are simply dead wrong about this passage.
Please feel free to consult any concordance you’d like and you’ll find that most agree with my assessment. Christ’s warning is about where you heart is – the “rich young ruler’s” heart was focused on his wealth. Any number of wealthy men exist in both the Old and New Testament who “were judged righteous”
There you go again. I never said it was a sin to be rich. In fact Jesus is very clear that it is possible for rich people to go to heaven, it is just unlikely. What I believe Jesus is trying to say here is that accumulating great wealth and Christian obligation are incompatible. People of wealth are most likely to in love with their money to do what god asks of them. Their love of worldly possession, influence and power will likely cost them salvation, because they like the rich young ruler are too attached to their earthly wealth. They are too greedy and selfish to do what Christ expects of his followers.
The problem I see is that many modern Christians, particularly far right evangelicals is they want a plan for salvation that requires little of nothing of them. They want to come to church on Sunday, give some money, pray for forgiveness and then repeat the same next week. They read the entire story you are discussing and like you dismiss it as not applicable to me. They have their home, their cars, their beach house, their club memberships, etc. etc. and they sit by and watch poor people starve every day, they watch refugees die from lack of food and shelter. Surely god does not expect them to help those people.
I think god’s message here is being rich will not keep you out of heaven, but will make it much harder for you to get there. You should concentrate on your salvation. Not on accumulating wealth in this world. You should should spend your money on helping others, and not stash it away in your piggy bank.
Unfortunately I think your analysis is what most Christians like. i.e. that was not intended for me. I can handle the wealth. I will be one of the “very few” rich people god pushes through the eye of the needle. I will be the exception to the rule. I can have it all.
Don’t disagree that “being rich” can make it harder but I know a number of very rich men who spend tremendous amounts of their wealth helping others, they just happen to be very good at making money.
Interesting that you mentioned the very same idea that I did, people looking for a plan that requires little of them, sort of sounds a lot like this: “…The rich young ruler was looking for a formula for salvation rather than salvation itself…” doesn’t it. Read the edit I wrote after you posted your original theologically bankrupt comment. We’re not far apart I just originally stated my position badly.
I do not think we are far apart. I think I am a more sceptical than you as to the motives and purported deeds of of others in the name of God. I think many modern Christians are constantly looking for ways to justify turning a blind eye toward those in need while living an extravagant lifestyle by world standards..
While the bible never said being rich is a sin. It never said being rich was a virtue. Not so of being poor. “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.”
As for the very rich men who expend tremendous amounts of their wealth in helping others; the problem is it may still not enough. “To whom much is given much is expected.” Maybe they could do more. If so, and they do not are they not like the rich young ruler; who probably did tithe to the Temple and give some of his wealth to help others. He just did not do enough. He loved what he had too much to give the full measure of what god asked of him. God wanted him to sacrifice for others.
Well, if poor does it, I’m a shoe in…
A journalist assigned to the Jerusalem Bureau takes an apartment overlooking the Wailing Wall. Every day when she looks out, she sees an old Jewish man praying vigorously.
So the journalist goes down and introduces herself to the old man.
She asks: “You come every day to the wall. How long have you done that and what are you praying for?”
The old man replies, “I have come here to pray every day for 25 years. In the morning I pray for world peace and then for the brotherhood of man. I go home have a cup of tea and I come back and pray for the eradication of illness and disease from the earth.”
The journalist is amazed. “How does it make you feel to come here every day for 25 years and pray for these things?” she asks.
The old man looks at her sadly. “Like I’m talking to a wall.”
I really like that one +100
The first televised prayers took place at the Galilee Stadium in Israel on August 7, 1957, prior to an international soccer match. For those who missed the highlights of the opening benediction, the station telecast an instant repray.
I have two books of Jewish humor and there are only two jokes that reference anything sexual.
Two attractive young Jewish women in their mid-twenties were on coffee break Monday morning, comparing their weekends.
“On Saturday, I pretended that I was a Gentile nurse,” said the first.
“How did you do that?” asked her friend.
“I slept with a Jewish doctor.”
How do you make a small fortune in Israel?
Come with a large one.
Hmmm, I am wrong about only two jokes — looking through the book I found some hilarious writing from Bruce Jay Friedman, Lenny Bruce, and Philip Roth. If I can remember, I’ll drop in some short excerpts at an appropriate time in the future.
If it’s ordained, why do you Christians send Bibi money (and, get tax deductions for it) to build his illegal settlements and keep fanning the flames of Islamic rage?
Oh, I know, so the world will end and Jesus will return…at US taxpayer expense.
I’m relatively certain that I’ve never sent a dime to Bibi though I have contributed money to some mission operations there.
Why are you pissed at Jerry Falwell, Jr?. He is just another faker using religion to get rich. He is no different that Ken Copeland and Rafael Cruz. They all use the name Jesus for their personal benefit. They all sully his name and cheapen his message. So why do you support some fakers and not all the fakers.
How about this then – The latest thing to piss me off is Jerry Falwell Jr’s rather odd support of the Trumpster (rhymes with dumpster). It doesn’t bother me that he has touted Trump(rhymes with dump) but his attempt to use the Great Commission “..Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you…” into a religio/political battle cry pissess me off.
So why doesn’t it piss you off that Rafael Cruz says Jesus Christ has anointed his son to be President. What is the difference? There is no difference. The only difference is the faker. Both sully the name of Christ and cheapen his message of love. Cruz and his son are fakers. They are not real Christians. If they were they would not be using Christ to gain money and power for themselves.
Why can people not recognize false profits when they see them. Do you really think God makes people rich and powerful? Were you actually taught that by anyone you admire?
Maybe he has?!? I haven’t heard anything from Rafael Cruz that offends me – in fact I haven’t heard anything from him at all.
Where did you get the idea that I admire anyone “rich and powerful”? That asked, there are many people who are rich, powerful and even some who are both that I admire though the list might make you wonder why I include this person or that person in either category.
Many of the televangelists offend me not because they have money or power but because they’ve distorted or subverted the Word of God in order to get the wealth or power, Creeflo “anything for a” Dollar and Joel “a better you” Osteen are ideal examples of who I’m talking about.
All of that said, I don’t know their heart, only their works and Matthew 7:15-20 says this: “…Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits…”
I’m thankful that I’m not the one who has to decide which trees get cut down.
Illegal settlements? Really??? Just goes to show how backwards your presumptions are and why there will never be peace in the middle east, because most people have the same presuppositions as you.
I am a Christian and I believe god will have a special place in hell for people like Ken Copeland and Rafael Cruz. I think they are nothing but con men using the name of Christ to get rich. Unfortunately that seems to be more and more the norm.
As for the Dominionist, if people professing to be Christians embrace their beliefs they deserve to be viewed as sneaky despots. Because their beliefs are inconsistent with the teachings of Christ. “We Christians” do not believe that crap. Dominionists are perverting the teachings of Christ to gain wealth and power in this world. Wealth and power I have no doubt they will regret having sought in the next.
If submit that there are far more non dominionist than there are dominionist. Many may be being deceived by there dominionist leaders but that doesn’t make them adherents to the idea, just deceived.
Alternet reported a couple of years ago that Rafael took him to a bunch of preachers in Iowa for an anointing related to some crazy Dominionist creed.
So, there’s plenty of stuff out there on just how dedicated Cruz is to his Dominionism.
I see from the lead photo here that GOD IS WHITE..!! That must be a blessing to be appreciated ….. (although my Cherokee blood is giving me a small argument)
Everybody has cherokee blood at FitsNews.
Must be all the inbreeding in SC.
I’m perfectly happy with family’s traits of non-webbed digits and evenly spaced eyes, so….nope.
you do know you need to have at least 3 eyes to be evenly spaced don’t you?
Good point. You must get that a lot.
nope, never and you can’t say that
It’ll be our little secret….like your uncle asked you to keep about your ‘wrasslin’.
is it true that internet trolls are sexually frustrated be wetters?
The only inconveniences are that it ‘s hard for us to get through a game of bowling… oh, and we can’t buy any cool shoes that need laces.
It really is a super irony how a homeless bum sitting on a sidewalk loudly proclaiming that he is ordained by God to lead men often times gets hauled away by the PoPo and force fed psychotropics in an observation ward, yet when you slap a suit and tie on someone and put them in front of a camera and it’s “a-ok”.
We’re crazy like that.
Yes yes yes!
I have an Aunt who ended up in the psych ward for that reason. She was dancing around half naked, in a hotel parking lot, one rainy night, preaching and praising God.
if she were only running for governor, we would not have had to live with Halley.
That’s weird, I have a schizophrenic aunt as well.
She didn’t mellow out until her 70’s…lots of Bible oriented delusions….interesting how many mentally ill people gravitate to the Bible.
my brother is schizophrenic and he has to live in california because the law would keep putting him jail for talking to telephone polls and shit. when we bring him home to visit a family member has to be with him any time he goes out in public or somebody is gonna get on a cell phone and they will lock him up again, other than missing us, he lives a pretty happy life in california and sc conservative call california Godless.
That’s where my Aunt lives currently, SoCal.
She lived for a while here in SC(a few years), and was thrown i jail once for picking up an beer bottle someone left outside a mini-mart and taking a swig…
Thankfully we had paperwork to show she’s as crazy as a loon and they released her into our custody with no further charges.
I could tell you some incredible stories…I actually lived with her for a year at around 14 years old….which was a really bad time in life for me.
my brother is a vet and if it was’nt for the VA helping him with his mental health needs i don’t what we would do, states like south carolina a have gutted the mental health system and use jails and prisons for the solution of the mentally ill.
” use jails and prisons for the solution of the mentally ill.”
yes, though truthfully that happens everywhere to some degree. My mother worked at Patton State Hospital in SoCal and could tell there were several “criminally insane” there that actually weren’t crazy at all…just got out of “hard time” via good attorney’s.
As you are aware, I don’t believe in gov’t solutions…but they sure as hell aren’t giving people enough tax breaks so they can take care of their own.
Now, Satan picks you, and for a cult that big, there’s a CEO and a board of directors. So, the CEO sends word to you, you meet with the CEO and the board of directors, and they tell you that you’ve been chosen. You’re given a book that tells you what your job duties as a high wizard are, and you decide whether you want to do it or not, though I’ve never known anybody to turn it down.
Satan has picked Bernie.
Did your parents get reported to DSS for putting you with her?
Well there’s several issues there.
1. That happened in SoCal(not SC)
2. My parents are divorced, it was just 1 responsible for making that decision
3. That was back at a time when people not only lived with their crazy relatives(and took care of them) more often, but there weren’t any laws to imprison people who had their kids around them at the time. (thankfully)
So while it wasn’t a great time in my life, some busybody reporting my mother for having had us live with her crazy sister for a time thankfully wasn’t a possibility back then…I can’t imagine how much worse life might have been if I had been pulled out of my family and shipped off to foster care or whatever over such a situation.
Picture this: Downstairs is a teenage Satanist son with a huge hexagram on
the floor, an altar to Satan nearby, and rock and roll music constantly
blasting from the stereo.
Think Bernie loves Satan. LOve him.
I had a personal library on the black arts and a huge “circle of salt”
on the basement floor at home. I bought albums only if they talked about
witchcraft, voodoo, or Satanism. I wrote an upside-down cross outside my
black tee shirt, which proudly proclaimed, “Satan lives!”
Anyone know of a book on why so many psychotic breaks have Jesus and religion going on?
Still more coherent than Ted Cruz.
She must have been at the Loveless Motel in Nashville …..
II stared into the flickering black candle that sat in the midst of the skull
and black-handled knives on my home made alter to Satan. Reciting the
incantation, I tried to ignore my nagging thoughts. I was still young —
just a teenager. How had I come to the place where I felt like I was sliding
headfirst into hell.
Feel the Bern!
I got your goat good pogo!!!!!! IN YOUR HEAD NOW!!!!! LMAO
I think someone below said this but these people truly are con men. The Cruz’s have been nothing but takers since they arrived in this country, illegally by the way. Getting his son elected president will be Rafael Cruz, Sr.’s greatest con yet.
Watch this trailer and tell me the almost-illiterate itinerant Cuban refugee holy man doesn’t have some serious dinero behind him:
Also note the American flag’s subservient role in its placement on the book’s cover photo.
Like brilliant lawyer Ted only discovered he had dual citizenship in Canada 18 months ago, Daddy Cruz only became a US citizen about 5 years ago…Cruz’s only take action when it will benefit Ted politically.
If Hitler had wanted to use divine mandate as his ruse of choice for world domination, you can bet he, too, would have given God, his daddy, Eva Braun and a couple of TRUE BELIEVERS supporting roles.
When you watch this, think about why Rafael “Ted” Cruz, cannot even legitimately sing this song. Even back when this was written, people knew some roots were important.
Funny how this is so much like how Karl Rove started Shrub’s gig: a big huddle with the pastor at the Methodist church in Austin. Laura Bush just played herself, though — not the Oracle.
What does Satan teach; rebellion. So Bernie rebelled and has called for a revolution. He didn’t listen to what the high priest Hillary and others told him to do.
Feel the Bern.He is Satan.
You’re nuts. Bernie is an old school leftie (the good kind).
I’m more afraid that God’s plan is to smite America with Cruz.
Sort of like a plague of frogs all in one package.
I have a cousin that came a long way from his days in satanism. I still believe in a spiritual reality. I believe in both demons and angels, evil and good. He simply traded darkness for light. The Lord Jesus Christ has helped him through complete recovery.
I need help.
Do people catch a faint whiff of sulfur at a Cruz rally?
Don’t know.I left a Bernie rally numb and afraid. I knew I was going to die. Who could I ask for help? I hated Christians, and the only other people I knew were Satanists. I decided to take a chance on Bernie.
We live in a country in which one of its founding principles is that there would be no religious test for public office. Fits now suggest that there should be a test and that Ted Cruz might not pass.
Cruz did not say, “I’ve been chosen by God to rule over you…” Those are Will Folks words.
Yeah, Will did rhat to generate comments.
Actually his father has said that repeatedly in the presence of his son and his son has never disagreed.
from “The Bush Tragedy” by Jacob Weisberg published 2008
p. 98 “Gerson…created a formal ‘voice’ for [George W.] Bush that was both evangelically coded and ecumenically powerful.”
p. 102 “[George W. Bush’s] first televised [post-911] appearance, from Barksdale AFB in Louisiana, was shaky…Gerson took Bush’s pastoral role quite seriously. He, more than anyone else, promoted the idea that a providential mantle had descended upon [GWB].”
p. 104 “Religion couldn’t guide his 911 response because Bush’s faith was a constructed persona, the projection of a chosen identity rather than a framework for looking at the world.”
“…no theological grounding or genuine framework of belief…”
p. 106 “[GWB’s closing his mind] to complexity isn’t mere intellectual laziness; it’s a fundamental evasion of freedom, God-given or otherwise.”
Ted Cruzs wife stated he was the face of God…same lady police found on the interstate having a nervous breakdown.. lol
That is not what she said. First, that woman is speaking in this religious context is proof of that church’s liberal attitude towards women. Second, she said “Seek the face of God, not his hand.” This expression means, look to God as your compass, but God is not going to help you.
BT for a confused political hack and liberal, I actually believe you KNOW Christ.
The important thing is that Christ knows me.
Haley knows ya…your point?
Your snarky remark about the ultimate “point” reminds me of Pilate’s remark when confronted with the ultimate “truth”. Pilate just didn’t get it. It may be that you won’t either.
At least she didn’t end up like Vince Foster.
I guess Ken Star, who spent $40 million investigating Bill Clinton, was just incompetent since the only evidence of anything he found was about Monica.
I think preachers should pay more taxes when they get political like that.
If God wants Cruz to be president, why are we bothering with an election?
Judeo-Christian values are positive influences ? Not for the Old Prussians during the Crusades. Neither were Judeo-Bolshevik values for East Prussians, Europeans,or Americans.
