I didn’t think Ted Cruz’s RNC speech would end up being one of my favorites so far. Yes, he had the typical conservative talking points, but he also made a point to defend religious freedom. Not just for Christians as so many Republicans do, but for Muslims and atheists as well! Wow. Here’s the entire statement and you can watch the full speech here:
“Freedom means religious freedom, whether you are Christian or Jew, Muslim or atheist. Gay or straight, the Bill of Rights protects the rights of all of us to live according to our conscience.”
I don’t agree with Ted Cruz very often, but this took some guts and he’s totally right. Donald Trump isn’t qualified to be president and would be a disaster for Republicans and Democrats alike. Ted Cruz won’t help party unity with this, but I can certainly respect his decision.
