Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz spoke last weekend at the National Religious Liberties Conference, a conservative Christian event hosted by Kevin Swanson, an evangelical pastor who has called for the execution of homosexuals.

While introducing Cruz, Swanson said that Jesus Christ “is king of the President of the United States whether he will admit it or not and that president should submit to His rule and to His law.”

He then asked Ted Cruz how important it was that the “president of the United States to fear God and what does that mean to you?”

To which Cruz replied, “Any president who doesn’t begin his day on his knees isn’t fit to be commander in chief.”

Ted Cruz’s answer tells voters a lot about his style of politics. He takes orders, not from the American people or the U.S. Constitution, but from the imaginary voice in his head that most likely always agrees with him.

The Republican Party as a whole has forgotten the role the government in this country and do not listen to the will of the people and instead listen to the will of their own minds and religious leaders. They see government as a way of enacting their religious privilege on everyone else and ignoring the calls from the majority when they want change.

Cruz was one of three candidates who attended the conference. He was joined by Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, both of which have gone on record numerous times proclaiming they listen to God first.
