If listening to Ted Cruz speak wasn’t frightening enough, listening to his wife, Heidi, talk about Ted Cruz and his plans for this country should really scare you.
Heidi Cruz describes her husband’s plans to show America “the face of God.”
“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,” Heidi Cruz said.
Her statement leaves out any understanding of the separation between church and state that allows for religious freedom. If our president’s entire focus is on serving America as a Christian nation, where do the rest of American citizens find representation?
The God of Christianity as a “God of freedom” and “individual liberty” makes little sense in the context of biblical law, which prescribes hell fire and brimstone to non-believers. How does one represent a country in which everyone is not Christian if Christianity eschews those who do not follow its dictates?
Heidi is not the first Cruz to speak about Ted’s motivation to merge the Constitution and the Bible and implement laws based on Christianity. Cruz’s father, Pastor Rafael Cruz, spoke of Cruz’s reliance on six months of prayer that culminated in Ted hearing the voice of God okay his bid for the presidency.
“It was as if there was a presence of the Holy Spirit in the room and we all were at awe,” Cruz stated, “and Ted, all that came out of his mouth, he said, ‘Here am I Lord, use me. Here am I Lord, I surrender to whatever Your will for my life is.’ And it was at that time that he felt a peace about running for president of the United States.”
A country led by a man who believes he has been sent by a Christian God to turn our nation around in the face of a “cultural crossroads” is one where progress should and would be undone. The celebration of same-sex marriage equality would come to a screeching halt. We had trouble moving toward reproductive health justice and the right for women to make their own decisions regarding pregnancy, motherhood, and their health before Ted Cruz, there would be no progress after. If you like having health care under Obama, you won’t under Ted Cruz. Cruz is so vehemently opposed to universal health care, he shut down the government to repeal it.
