I was sitting here thinking when he spoke NONE of the “others” would have spoke Jesus name as he did. and then he was on his way out of the stadium when they decided to pray and he stopped in mid stride – we ALL know none of the rest of them would do that or even be put into that environment to begin with.
This isnt the first time Raphael has spoken about jesus. Or at least about the jesus he chooses to distort. Please read this and then tell me that Raphael believes in the jesus of the bible or believes in a jesus that he thinks exists only in his head. I dont care for name calling or deflections or anything else. I am curious if all the christian voters think that this following quote is ok or if you find some sort of crazy rationalization. Please just answer the question. This man is evil personified and if I were you, i would be very worried about what this man brings to the table. If he can twist who jesus was and what jesus stood for, who is to say that he wont twist the constitution as well?
Take it away Raphael…
“What we have here is our core values as Americans and Christians slipping away into this facade where we should take care of our poor, sick, and disabled,” said Cruz in hour 19 of his filibuster. “It is disheartening to know that the nation our forefathers built is no longer of importance to our president and his Democratic counterparts. Not only that, we are falling away from core Christian values. I don’t know about you, but I believe in the Jesus who died to save himself, not enable lazy followers to be dependent on him. He didn’t walk around all willy nilly just passing out free healthcare to those who were sick, or food to those who were hungry, or clothes to those in need. No, he said get up, brush yourself off, go into town and get a job, and as he hung on the cross he said,”I died so that I may live in eternity with my Father. If you want to join us you can die for yourself and your own sins. What do I look like, your savior or something?” That’s the Jesus I want to see brought back into our core values as a nation. That’s why we need to repeal Obamacare.”
Don't you have some maple syrup to steal or some mass graves to dig? Useless beyond our own useless left, international uselessness. Kudos, pucker more.
"NONE of the “others” would have spoke Jesus name as he did"
"He’s done it while talking about abortion and the Middle East, even the economy. ... As president, Barack Obama has mentioned Jesus Christ in a number of high-profile public speeches — something his predecessor George W. Bush rarely did in such settings, even though Bush’s Christian faith was at the core of his political identity."
Now you may be correct in how you clarify your assertion LogCabinRepublican - in that: "... as he did".
Sure seem to me like Cruz is off to an early start alienating those who don't hold his far-right Christian beliefs.
It will be VERY INTERESTING to watch as he 'pivots' to try and garner attention (votes) from such non-far-right Christians.
For me... Cruz's bid for the presidency was over before he even formally announced it began. But I for one will 'enjoy the show' as it plows on (for a while).
Cruz’s OWN words are what ‘doom’ him.
The press / his opponents / his ‘enemies’ will not have to make anything up. All they’ll have to do is play recordings of Cruz’s own words.
"Free Wood Post is a News Satire website. It is an online satirical take on current affairs featuring FAKE stories about politics, pop culture, and the marketplace."
That's ok though, no need to use critical thinking. Your only goal is to tear down a good man!
Sorry c anadian. I feel the .same way. I don't work so others can have obamaphones.
Use your own money for that. By that I mean you, use your money
Free wood post. That's classic.
Cruz really chaps your ass huh? Good.
I thought I was going to explode listening to him talk about how under his Presidency we would have "Liberty" again while giving a speech at a college funded by racist Jerry Falwell. Falwell's own words belie the sentiment in which his university was founded:
"If Chief Justice Warren and his associates had known God's word and had desired to do the Lord's will, I am quite confident that the 1954 decision would never had been made. The facilities should be separate. When God has drawn a line of distinction, we should not attempt to cross that line."
CanadianSocialist is a major troll and speaks only for the pinkest of Canadians. He is an embarrassment to me and all other conservative Canadians who come across his comments on the Blaze.
GO CRUZ!! What a speech!
I love you, LogCabinRepublican, for standing up for your beliefs. May God protect you and never leave you, and continue to give you the strength to stand for what you believe against those who would disagree.
If Ted Cruz is willing to fight, even shut down the government, to make sure that those undeserving Americans don't get healthcare, then you know he'll fight for your rights.

I had a dream several months back that I saw him speaking to the American People a little more grey and a little more stout – it seemed as though he had been President for several years and very well may have been into his second term.

I can see why you’d want Perry but I honestly don’t trust him. There’s something I can’t put my finger on. Same as Walker and I’m in Wisconsin

Shocking! Monifa Bandele, senior campaign director for MomsRising.org is funded by who other than SPOOKY DUDE – Soros.
Funnier is the sycophants here that sound off like clock work as if they had an original thought and no script emailed daily. The blaze needs an anti-Christian and lgbltq story daily to keep them busy.
So…to extrapolate……soros is calling holder a liar as well.
No surprise there.
Maybe he can give the shop owners money to rebuild.

The type of surgery he is electing to have is cosmetic and NO insurance will cover it. Not everyone has 20k lying around – most people are lucky to make that much in a year
There are a few cases where insurance does kick in. Once it gets to the point infections, fungus, oozing sores, etc.... are constant, some will pay partial amounts.
Good for him on his weight loss! :-)

Some people are meant to be together it’s just at that moment they weren’t meant to meet – I have heard of this happening before
I met my wife in college. I had been there for a year before we met. Imagine how many times we may have crossed paths without knowing each other until we actually met.. Who knows, someone may have a picture with both of us in it without knowing. I may have bumped into her at the cafeteria before we even met and not known it.
Really????? Come on. These things happen. I am a Christian and I don't believe in coincidence, I have faith that God put us together. But just because you have a picture of two people that happen to be in the same frame, but hadn't met yet. How does that mean anything? I wouldn't even call it a coincidence. It's meaningless.
My wife and I met in 1999 and we married in 2002.
She was born in 1966 and I was born in 1961..
Both of our families were USAF and stationed at Cigli AB in Izmir Turkey from 1968 to 1970. My dad’s next assignment was at March AFB in Calif, her dad’s next was in New York. We met in Houston.

My boycott if you want to call it that is to ONLY put NON-Ethanol gas in my car – none of that watered down corn crap in my tank – I”m lucky to have it readily available and actually it should be available to everyone you just need to know where to look – ALL Boats and small engines must run on non-ethanol gas – here is a map of stations across the United States that sell NON-Ethanol gas http://pure-gas.org/extensions/map.html it will cost you more money BUT there are also a ton more BTU’s in it than any other and you get more MPG’s and your car will run better and cleaner – all in all it’s a win win -
I’ll have to go a little out of my way to find the ethanol-free stuff but I’m willing to give it a try. Thanks for the tip!
It will add life to your car to do so. Ethanol burns at higher temps than gasoline, which accelerates damage to the aluminum cylinder heads that all modern vehicles have. If yours is not a "flex fuel" vehicle, then you have plastic and rubber parts that are chemically rotted by the alcohol.
As @LCR mentioned, you will experience marginally better gas mileage.
More importantly to me, you will quit supporting an unnecessary government subsidy program.
Thanks, argyle. I'll have to start planning my trips to fill up from now on.
ethanol at the cost of $6 billion a year goes straight to the pockets of Valero (or whatever Venezuela calls it now)
It takes food out of the hands of starving people.
If it weren't for the increased c02 creating bumper crops around the world, more people would be starving from ethanol food theft.
Of course not ONE station in greater Shitcagoland!
newer cars can safely run 10% and valero is not venezuela and yes it increased the cost of food and 1 buck a gallon premium is not worth it thats the premium in my area
I a gay man in my 40′s would not want to grow up in that environment either I am thankful I have a Mother and a Father and wouldn’t want it any other way. There are things a Father can provide that a Mother can’t and vise versa – I bet if my gay friends heard me say this they would banish me from the community.
I feel for you, brother. You are a minority within a minority, but one of the few that come here that are willing to discuss the issue without pushing the agenda. We appreciate that.
Yes, look at the situation with Dolce & Gabbana. I think in the end people need to stand up against political correctness. It's not about hating, it's actually about love - the love the children are missing out on.
Why should you feel ashamed, shunned, banished, cut off, unliked, not welcome, in 'this' community, merely for expressing your feelings?
The actor Rupert Everett expressed the same opinion a while back and yes, it caused a lot of weeping and gnashing of teeth. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/women/sex/9546091/Rupert-Everett-Theres-nothing-worse-than-gay-parents.html
You must wear the ribbon!
I don't think your gay friends would banish you from the community for saying such.
My guess is they have already silently banished you away from such because you support Republicans.
But all seriousness aside...
A child doesn't get to choose the environment he/she grows up in. And frankly, based on what I read from this women... It seems she thinks her mother(s) were great - "I love you, so much." / "I’m not saying that you can’t be good parents. You can. I had one of the best." - but rather, to me, it seems most of all she longs for / pains for not having a father figure around. Not even her biological father because... "My dad wasn’t a great guy, and after she left him he didn’t bother coming around anymore." but just a father figure.
And as I have already noted repeatedly...
I find myself in total agreement – and support with her PARTICULAR statement that: “But by and large, the best and most successful family structure is one in which kids are being raised by both their mother and father.” There really is little to nothing to contest there and again, I fully support such and... in fact I would offer that I have myself have even noted such a few times.
INDEED. There ARE "things a Father can provide that a Mother can’t and vise versa".
And so when presented SUCH a situation as this woman's... We can only hope 'the best' is what is sought out for the child - by ALL involved.

Roman is Far from a Progressive Liberal – He’s a 2nd Amendment loving Small Business Owner as is Howies son who helped Roman set this entire Prank up. All this Stereotyping in the comments below I thought I was on some Liberal MSM website.

When people are forced to hide something they know is wrong they most times turn to drugs or alcohol – we ALL know something major is going to happen and his security detail knows this – now if we could only get one of them to confess to the American People rather than drown their sorrows in booze
I give these guys a pass, having to protect this anti American pimp in chief has got to be stressful.
All day long these guys have to let assorted Muslim Brotherhood freaks in & out of the White House.
Has to be constant stress for any loyal American.
The Washington Post reported that the officers on duty the night of the incident wanted to arrest the agents and give them sobriety tests, but were ordered by a supervisor to let the agents go home.
