Ted Cruz Will Show the “Face Of The God That We Serve” to America, Says His Wife

Ted Cruz has made no secret of his religious fervor or political ambition during his campaign. His election to the presidency would be, to use his own words, “the Body of Christ ris[ing] up to pull us back from the abyss.”

The good news for Cruz is that it’s not just the Body of Christ that’s pulling for him. Apparently, he’s been chosen to represent the Face of God to the country, too.

And, no, it wasn’t Cruz channeling God’s divine intentions for him this time. It was his wife, Heidi.

She said as much in an interview with radio host Vince Coakley:

Gay Republicans Release Ad Tearing Down Hillary Clinton, as if the GOP is Better on LGBT Issues

If you care about LGBT rights, then asking what political party you support should be a pointless exercise. Of course you support Democrats. They’re not perfect, and they took their damn time getting to that point, but most prominent Democrats now accept LGBT equality and embrace anti-discrimination policies.

Which makes you wonder: What the hell is up with Log Cabin Republicans? Why do they bother supporting Republicans who want nothing to do with them and want to make their lives that much more difficult?

The GOP-supporting LGBT group recently released an ad recently denouncing Hillary Clinton for not “evolving” on the gay rights issue until it was politically expedient for her to do so:

LogCabinGOP

They’re not wrong. Clinton didn’t get on the right side of this issue until recently. Neither did President Obama. Bernie Sanders has historically been much better on the issue. But they’re all in the same, right place now.

Which makes you wonder: What the hell do the Log Cabin Republicans want? The video urges voters to dismiss Clinton… as if we should vote for a Republican instead? Are you kidding me?!

Bryan Fischer: Politicians Should Pass a Test Administered by David Barton Before Taking Office

Christian Right leader Bryan Fischer agreed with a caller this week who said government lawyers should have to take a class taught by Pseudo-historian David Barton before they get hired.

Fischer actually took it farther, saying that rule should apply to members of Congress as well. They should have to pass a test administered by Barton’s organization before they take their seats.

That’s David Barton. The guy whose book about Thomas Jefferson was pulled off the shelves by his own Christian publishers due to all the inaccuracies.

Another Candidate for the Arizona Legislature Comes Out as Non-Religious

Last week, I posted that Arizona Democrat Cara Prior was openly atheist. And she wasn’t afraid to announced that despite an uphill battle to defeat incumbent Representative Kelly Townsend in an upcoming State House race.

Her husband Scott Prior, who is running his own campaign for State Senate in District 16, is now following in her footsteps.
