The Sunday before the midterm elections, Pastor Rafael Cruz, father of Sen. Ted Cruz, spoke at John Hagee's church in San Antonio, Texas, where he spent an entire hour delivering a speech that was literally little more than an amalgamation of material that he has directly pilfered from other Religious Right speakers, most notably pseudo-historian David Barton. As we have noted before, the elder Cruz is quite fond of lifting Barton's misinformation about American history and the Constitution and passing it along during his own presentations, but the speech he delivered at Hagee's...

In an interview last month with Religious Right radio host Glenn Pav, Sen. Ted Cruz’s father and frequent campaign surrogate Rafael Cruz warned that God is going to punish evangelical pastors who don’t turn out their congregations to vote for “righteous” candidates. After discussing how God told him that He would hold pastors accountable for low election turnout among evangelical Christians, Cruz warned that God would fault pastors for their supposed silence on Supreme Court decisions blocking school-sponsored prayer, which he said led to spikes in teen pregnancy and...

Apparently, the most oppressed class in America today is conservative politicians, whom people are horribly persecuting by failing to promote their books or demand they run for president. It is even worse for the everyday right-wing activists, who seem to be living under constant threats of lynching. MORE >

Rafael Cruz is pretty sure that President Obama and liberals would love to scrap the Bill of Rights in order to achieve their dream of creating a totalitarian, Marxist government and destroy religious freedom. The conservative political activist and father of Sen. Ted Cruz told “Faith & Liberty” host Dave Garrison on Tuesday that President Obama and Fidel Castro are two peas in a pod, claiming that both leaders “operate by the same rulebook” in their supposed attempts to “embrace socialism,” “eliminate the concept of God” and “make the...

Rafael Cruz, the father of Ted Cruz and a close adviser to the Texas senator, told the radio show “Faith & Liberty” on Tuesday that President Obama is committed to emulating Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong in seizing firearms in order to use them against the American people. Cruz, who regularly preaches Christian Nationalist pseudo-history, said that Obama has a “worldview based upon a totalitarian view of government being all powerful,” and is bent on “destroying the exceptionalism of America” by ratifying the Law of the Seas Treaty. After host Dave... MORE >
