Ted Cruz Is Out: Did God Make A Mistake?

One pitfall of claiming to speak for God is that God doesn't always cooperate.Glenn Beck once said Ted Cruz had the best chance of winning the GOP nomination because God was on Cruz's side. Now that Cruz has dropped out, is God disappointed?Beck wrote a post for his website where he downplays the fact that Cruz is out. What is happening in this election is normal. If you think it’s abnormal, you aren’t looking back far enough into history. Civilizations go through this. Societies aren’t … [Read more...]

PA Primary News: Donald Trump’s PA Delegates Disclosed #NeverTrump

Politifact’s Rating of GOP Candidates – John Kasich Is Most Accurate

Everybody makes mistakes. I certainly don't expect presidential candidates to be flawless in their public statements. They speak constantly and answer questions on a broad spectrum of topics. They will misspeak.On the other hand, a consistent record of incorrect claims implies either lack of care for truth or an unacceptable ignorance when it comes to important issues. Motives are hard to discern but fact checking can get us closer to the truth.The folks at Politifact compiled a report … [Read more...]

Rob Gagnon and Edith Humphrey writing at Christianity Today say no.Gagnon and Humphrey respond mainly to John Fea's writings on the subject.I think Cruz likes to hang out with seven mountains dominionists, including his father and David Barton.What would be nice is to hear from Cruz himself. I would like to know if he agrees with his father that he is a "king" who will help bring about a great transfer wealth from the pagans to the Christians, or at least the dominionist Christians. … [Read more...]

I’m a Republican and I Need a Mechanic. Who Should I Choose?

Let's play I'm a Republican and I need a...I’m a Republican and I need my car fixed. I could go to a guy who isn’t a mechanic but says he can fix anything, a guy who says he’s a mechanic but hasn’t fixed anything, or a guy who has been a successful mechanic for over 25 years.Who should I pick?Lately, I think most Republicans would pick the overly confident non-mechanic or the guy who is a mechanic but hasn't fixed many, if any, cars.Or I'm a Republican and I need major surgery … [Read more...]

Ted Cruz Misleads on Climate Science

A video going around Facebook again (first posted back in September 2015) shows Ted Cruz answering an impatient questioner on climate science. Cruz displayed a calm demeanor but he played loose with the facts. The questioner asked Cruz if he denies climate change. Watch:Unfortunately the questioner got in his own way at first. However, once Cruz got to answer, he claimed three things.Thirty to forty years ago, there was a group of liberals and scientists who claimed the world was … [Read more...]

Why I Won’t Vote for Ted Cruz – #NeverCruz

In this crazy GOP primary season, I have come out frequently for John Kasich although I could have lived with Marco Rubio as well. Given the available choices, a Kasich/Rubio ticket would be a pretty formidable duo to face either Clinton or Sanders in November.For me, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are non-starters. In this post, I want to outline why I can't vote for Ted Cruz.Cruz promises to deport 12 million illegal immigrantsNot only does Cruz hold a morally reprehensible policy in my … [Read more...]
