Epic: Watch Ted Cruz’s Dad Slam Obama, Lois Lerner, And Eric Holder With The Bible

Tea Party-Backed Sen. Ted Cruz often cites the impact his father, Cuban immigrant Rafael Cruz, had on his current status as a conservative icon. The elder Cruz, who serves as a pastor in Texas, remains an outspoken advocate for traditional values and, during a recent speech in Foxboro, Mass., presented the case for mixing faith and politics.

He addressed members and guests of the Massachusetts Republican Assembly 4th Chapter, concluding that the “Bible talks a lot about politics,” going on to explain how God’s Word can direct voters.

“As a matter of fact, did you know that the Bible tells you exactly who to vote for?” he asked. “Very, very clearly the Bible tells you who to vote for. Let me prove it to you.”

Cruz cited an Old Testament passage in which Jethro discussed choosing the right leader with his son-in-law, Moses.

God spoke through Jethro, he explained, and “gives four qualifications: able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness.”

Expounding on those concepts, Cruz concluded that the guideline is still relevant in today’s political culture.

“For example, you defend the sanctity of life,” he suggested. “But beyond the moral code, that means you live a life of integrity, honesty, hard work, individual responsibility, the rule of law, and yes, free enterprise and limited government.”

He noted that Old and New Testament scripture “has a lot to say about all those.”

Criticizing the lies that have too often defined political discourse, Cruz said it is incumbent on each voter to research the claims being made by any politician or candidate.

“Whether it’s Lois Lerner, or it’s Rahm Emanuel, or it’s our illustrious attorney general, or it’s our president,” he said, “they go from lie to lie to lie to lie.”

Christ informed his followers that they can know a man “by his fruits,” Cruz explained, suggesting that it “won’t do any good to listen to a politician that tells you, ‘Oh yes, I’m pro-life’ and they’ve voted for abortion 17 times.”

Even issues such as states’ rights are addressed in the Bible, he suggested, noting that a hierarchy of leaders was instituted under Moses.

Those levels of leadership, he noted, was the “equivalent of federal government, state government, county government, local government.”

While the most pressing matters were presented to Moses, Cruz explained that “everything else you handle yourself, in other words at the local level.”

    I think even the other devil would be a better president than this muslim person who hates the White Americans, and it was a couple of the rich white (?) Americans that bought him the senate seat and then financed his campaign and paid off the illegals that voted 6-7 times and rigged the voting booth machines.

    I thank God that someone has the backbone to say it!!! Most Black Americans today hate white people and will not be happy with us until they we are under their feet. I say this because of everyday interaction with the black community that has moved from Detroit to the suburbs. Now that Detroit has had 40 years of black rule and has been run into the ground, black Detroiters are running to the suburbs in droves.

    I will go one farther than the comment that the Obama's are racist. If you look at the Ex-mayor of Detroit, Kwaume Kilpatrick who robed, stole and cheated his way to the mayors office in Detroit, do we see the Obama's making America a better place??? NO!!! They take million dollar vacations several times a year, while America is sinking!! To me Barack Obama is Kwaume Kilpatrick, just at the Federal level.

    I pray that God will keep his hand on this country, and bring us out of this mess we have in the White House.
