Ted Cruz recently spoke to a group of Middle Eastern “Christians” and had the audacity to say that “Christians have no better ally than Israel.”
Even if it meant getting a tomato thrown at him – Ted Cruz is not going to back down from his principles – sorry, everyone. I know Donald Trump will do and say anything to get elected and change his positions quicker than a showgirl G-string, but Cruz is steadfast in his beliefs. And the VIDEO BELOW shows it:
Like many so-called Christian groups these days – Jeremiah Wright where are you? – many in the audience were far from any reasonable definition of Christianity.
Cruz, the keynote speaker at the sold-out D.C. dinner gala for the recently-founded non-profit In Defense of Christians, began by saying that “tonight, we are all united in defense of Christians. Tonight, we are all united in defense of Jews. Tonight, we are all united in defense of people of good faith, who are standing together against those who would persecute and murder those who dare disagree with their religious teachings.”
Cruz was not reading from a teleprompter, nor did he appear to be reading from notes.
“Religious bigotry is a cancer with many manifestations,” he continued. “ISIS, al-Qaida, Hezbollah, Hamas, state sponsors like Syria and Iran, are all engaged in a vicious genocidal campaign to destroy religious minorities in the Middle East. Sometimes we are told not to loop these groups together, that we have to understand their so called nuances and differences. But we shouldn’t try to parse different manifestations of evil that are on a murderous rampage through the region. Hate is hate, and murder is murder. Our purpose here tonight is to highlight a terrible injustice, a humanitarian crisis.”
“Christians have no greater ally than Israel,” he said, at which point members of the crowd began to yell “stop it” and booed him.
You’re right Ted. Bless you.
