David Barton, the Religious Right psuedo-historian and activist who ran a major super PAC supporting Ted Cruz’s presidential candidacy, released a video today laying out the path for conservative Christian activists to take now that Cruz, the candidate they had long prayed for, has dropped out of the presidential race.
The results of the GOP presidential primary, he said, drive home three life lessons: 1) Nothing catches God by surprise; 2) God cares how you respond to adversity; 3) All things work together for good according to God’s plan.
As such, Barton said that conservative activists cannot now abandon all that they have fought for and must, instead, “become more engaged” and get to work electing people who will operate according to “the timeless principles given to us by God” to local, state and federal offices.
“We become more engaged and we get our neighbors engaged,” Barton said. “We need to make sure our neighbors are registered to vote and that they choose God-fearing leaders and that, above all, we teach ourselves and others to think and act biblically.”
