“There is no meaningful risk of Christians committing acts of terror,” Cruz said in the wake of a brutal terrorist attack in Paris by ISIS during a visit to South Carolina on Sunday.
Um. . .
And he said this in South Carolina. Home of this guy who must have not been a terrorist because Christians can't ever be terrorists.
And, not in any particular order:
Army of God
The Phineas Priesthood
Jerad and Amanda Miller
Eric Matthew Frein
the Hutaree Militia
Wade Micheal Page
Joseph Andrew Stack III
And so on, and so on, and so on. . .
Oh, and Cruz defended his insane position by saying this:
"If my father were part of a theocratic and political movement like radical Islam that promotes murdering anyone who doesn't share your extreme faith or forcibly converting them, it would make perfect sense," he said. "Not to let someone in who a embraces political philosophy and theology that says murder the infidels."
Um. . . I don't know about your father, but you spent the weekend being the star attraction at an event hosted by a pastor that advocates murdering all gay people.
Cruz is also set to join Mike Huckabee and Bobby Jindal at a religious liberty confab with Pastor Kevin Swanson. If you’re unfamiliar with Kevin Swanson, Right Wing Watch has put together a rather comprehensive survey of his body of work as it relates to LGBT people, among other things. Swanson celebrated the murder of an abortion provider, argued that sex slavery is actually better than social welfare programs, believes that God gave gay people AIDS as an “act of kindness,” and thinks Uganda’s “kill the gays” bill should be a model for the United States(source)
So, maybe we shouldn't have let you in. Except that stopping you at the border would have been a shitty thing to do to Canada.
