Bryan Fischer Award Winner: Ted Cruz

Bryan Fischer Award Winner: Ted Cruz March 31, 2016

The Bryan Fischer Award is given to those who display a staggering lack of self-awareness and this may be the most blatant example of that I have ever seen. Ted Cruz, who claims that he only ran for president because he got permission from the Holy Spirit, says that you shouldn’t wear your religion on your sleeve. Hemant has the transcript:


DOUGHERTY: Hi, Senator Cruz. My question for you is: how and why does your religion play a part in your political decision making? Don’t you think it should be more of a moral belief and not something that could interfere with your decision-making when you’re making decisions for all religions in the United States?

CRUZ: … Listen, with me as with many people in America, my faith is an integral part of who I am. I’m a Christian and I’m not embarrassed to say that. I’m not gonna hide that and treat it like it’s something you can’t admit publicly and acknowledge it’s an important part of who you are…

CRUZ:… But I also think that those in politics have an obligation not to wear their faith on their sleeve. There have been far too many politicians that run around, behaving like they’re holier-than-thou. And I’ll tell you: My attitude as a voter when some politician says, “I’m running because God told me to run,” my reaction as a voter is, “Great! When God tells me to vote for you, we’ll be on the same page!”…

Astounding, isn’t it? This is a guy who goes around the country with Glenn Beck introducing him at his rallies telling audiences that he is anointed by God to be the next president. Whose father goes around the country telling audiences that God has raised him up to return America to its Christian glory and protect us from divine wrath. And he makes a statement like this. You could fertilize the Gobi desert with this much bullshit and hypocrisy.
