So Is Ted Cruz Running for President or Priest?

by Dan Quinn

TedHeidiCruzHere is Heidi Cruz on Wednesday, putting husband Ted Cruz’s race for president in, well, godly terms:

“When I thought about doing it for our country, it became very clear to me that our family must be in this race. We are at a cultural crossroads in our country, and if we can be in this race to show this country the face of the God that we serve—this Christian God that we serve is the foundation of our country. Our country was built on Judeo-Christian values. We are a nation of freedom of religion, but the God of Christianity is the God of freedom, of individual liberty, of choice and of consequence.”

So her family is selflessly showing the country “the face of God”? They think highly of themselves, don’t they?

It also seems clear that both Cruzes suffer from a fundamental misunderstanding of what religious liberty really means. Their conception is strikingly different from how the nation’s founders saw that freedom.
