Yesterday on American Family Radio’s “Today’s Issues,” Rafael Cruz chatted with Ed Vitagliano about the need to elect his son, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, president of the United States and prevent the appointment of a “liberal justice” to the Supreme Court.
“With the passing of Justice Scalia, the Supreme Court is in a precarious balance,” he said. “One more liberal justice and we lose the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, we lose the right to life and abortion on demand to the point of delivery will become the law of the land, we will lose all our religious freedom.”
Vitagliano agreed, warning that “one more liberal, vote-in-lock-step Supreme Court justice could doom many of the freedoms that we enjoy, First Amendment, Second Amendment, possession of firearms, the right to bear arms.”
Cruz lamented that “pastors have gone AWOL” from the political sphere even though the “Pilgrims came to America seeking the freedom to worship Almighty God and this country was founded on the Word of God and religious freedom,” adding that his son’s presidential bid is motivating conservative Christian pastors to get involved in politics. He told pastors to “open the eyes of people who are in darkness.”
“Vote for a candidate that stands on the purity and the integrity of the Word of God and on the integrity of the Constitution,” he said. “That is the foundation of America. If we do that, we can restore America to that shining city on the hill to the glory of God. I encourage you, if the Body of Christ coalesces around Ted Cruz, a true man that believes in the Constitution and the rule of law, we will see him as the next president of the United States.”
