Last month, we noted that Ted Cruz attended a national security forum held at Rick Joyner’s MorningStar Church in Fort Mill, South Carolina.
Joyner is a self-proclaimed prophet who frequently talks of his prophetic dreams about chaos and revolution descending upon America and resulting in martial law. He is the sort of right-wing Christian leader who issues warnings about how the devastating 2011 earthquake in Japan would push America into Nazism and declares that Hurricane Katrina was God’s judgment for homosexuality. He’s also the type to declare that gay marriage will usher in national destruction, a second civil war, divine judgment, a ban on men and women marrying each other and even the Mark of the Beast.
But Joyner is not all doom and gloom, as he did once pray away the spread of the Asian Flu and even cooked a miraculous casserole that fed multitudes.
Later this week, Cruz will return to Joyner’s church for a campaign event and this time he’ll be in the company of another self–appointed prophet: Glenn Beck.
