Cruz: Pastors Will Soon Be Thrown in Jail!

Ted Cruz extended his unbroken record of demagoguery and spreading ridiculous and paranoid hysteria over the recent tempest in a teacup over a too-broad subpoena issued by Houston attorneys. In an interview with fake journalist David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network, he says that this means ministers will soon be thrown in prison:

Cruz joined pastors and Religious Right activists at a press conference in Houston yesterday, and in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody today said that all his warnings about the persecution of Christians in America have come to fruition.

When Brody asked Cruz if “we very well soon go through a period where pastors are hauled off to jail for a hate crime because they are speaking for traditional marriage,” Cruz agreed, saying, “I think that is a real risk and you and I have both pointed to that risk in the past.”

Of course. Just like Obama is going to seize all your buns and put you in FEMA concentration camps. And the UN is going to take over the country. And we’re going to have Sharia law imposed on us. Any…minute…now.

    Toasted, with butter and whisky-orange marmalade, please. Oh, and some coffee (in the cup in the other hand?). Thanks!

    “Obama is going to seize all your buns”

    He’ll get slapped if he tries to pinch my buns!

    Obama is going to seize all your buns

    See, they’ve been telling us that Obama is gay.

    Have bun – Will revel.

    Worse than that — Obama is going to deport all Canadians!

  • Randomfactor

    Currently circulating is a story about husband-and-wife ministers who run a for-profit wedding chapel open to the public, bemoaning the fact they they’re being “forced” to perform same-sex marriages.

    If you can’t do the business ethically, get OUT of the business.

  • gshelley

    They aren’t even being forced to. The city has a non discrimination law and someone from the council said it would probably apply to the chapel, so as soon as they had turned down a same sex couple, they ran to the ADF to get an injunction before the city could even think of what they should do

    Ted Cruz, Joe McCarthy with brains.

  • DaveL

    To be fair, pastors are carted off to jail all the time. It’s just that it’s usually for tax fraud or diddling underage members of the congregation.

    Worse than that — Obama is going to deport all Canadians!

    Pffft! Canadians are a lie perpetrated by the left wing media. Like there’s actually a real country where people are polite, don’t pack concealed handguns and have universal healthcare. Keep dreaming.

  • D. C. Sessions

    This is Obama’s Homosexual Agenda coming to the forefront!

  • Kevin Kehres

    Dammit, DC…it’s Obama’s Muslim Nazi Communist Kenyan Terrorist-kids-crossing-the-border-with-Ebola ISIS-supporting gun-grabbing homosexual UN Agenda 21 agenda.

    Do try to keep up!

    Plus it’s not his agenda, it’s the agenda of his masters — the Rothchilds Masons lizard people illuminati Queen Elizabeth (but not that dolt Prince Charles). Who have a secret time machine that went back to fake his birth announcement in Hawaii. And then caused 9/11 to discredit Bush so that he’d get re-elected so that then Obama — who is Malcolm X’s son but totally still a Kenyan — could get into the White House and start a false flag operation to distract us from BENGHAZI!!!11eleventy!!

    You say that like it’s a bad thing.

  • Phillip IV

    Cruz agreed, saying, “I think that is a real risk and you and I have both pointed to that risk in the past.”

    “Regarding that thing both you as well as me have pointed out as a danger, do you think it’s a danger?”

    “I do, and so do you!”

    What a cordial interview.

    On the plus side, the GOP candidate in 2016 will have a really easy time moving toward the center after the primary is over and the general begins. “The sky is blue” ought to do it.

  • busterggi

    Put preachers in jail? Heck, they aren’t even being jailed yet for child molestation, fraud, practicing medicine w/o licenses or any of their regular behavior.

  • Jared James

    Used to be the very real threat of ministers being thrown in jail for their beliefs was only every few years; now it’s roughly every sixty days, or just barely long enough for the suckers to make some more money.

    Won’t be long before the threat will be so imminent it won’t be profitable, so the Teds (Cruz, Nugent, Haggard, et al) will have to move on to some new existential threat.

  • rabbitscribe

    People, please: let’s not let this get derailed. Return the conversation to the “buns” typo where it belongs.

  • dailydouq

    @9, he’s got the brains! Well he certainly has the same look, almost indistinguishable to me but the only brain he has is the lizard kill-them-all brain. For a while it seemed like he had a clever angle, but now he’s just a broken record.

    buns typo, you mean the misplaced comma in Bill of Rights typo loophole that Scalia drove his buns through.

  • shripathikamath

    That reminds me, is Ted Nugent dead or in jail? Because them pastors will need to get in line.

  • colnago80

    Re dailydouq @ #20

    One of the most dangerous things that liberals can do is to underestimate Ted Cruz. Anyone who has ever dealt personally with him testifies that he is brilliant. Former Prof. Dershowitz, who taught a popular course in Constitutional Law at Harvard has said that Cruz, along with Elizabeth Warren, was the most brilliant student he ever had in class. He combines high intellectually with a capacity for demagoguery that would make Hister, Huey Long, and Joe McCarthy look like amateurs. This is a dangerous combination and if he ever got into the Oval office, look out.

  • anachronistes

    Not sure I want to see Obama force a minister to grab Ted’s buns, and certainly not his Cruz missile…
