Ted Cruz: atheists are unfit to be President.

Ted Cruz: atheists are unfit to be President. November 9, 2015

Ted Cruz (along with Bobby Jindal and Mike Huckabee) spoke at Kevin Swanson’s National Religious Liberties Conference last weekend.  One of the first things he said was that non-Christians aren’t fit to be President:

No matter how brilliant, no matter how kind, if he doesn’t believe a guy rose from the dead 2,000 years ago then he’s unfit.  Right.

Incidentally, the person who introduced Cruz is Pastor Kevin Swanson.  It’s his event Cruz is speaking at.   Kevin Swanson thinks gay people should be murdered:

Slavery? No working on the Sabbath? No shellfish? Hey man, it was a different time! Gay people? Kill them because the bible is absolute.

This is where we stand in America: a person can attend an event run by a guy who thinks roughly 10% of the population should be murdered and still be a candidate for the office.  Hey, at least he doesn’t doubt that a guy rose from the dead 2,000 years ago, otherwise we’d be in real trouble, right?
