When Ted Cruz was asked about Obama’s religion,
He absolutely NAILED it.
A questioner at a campaign event asked Ted Cruz a dynamite-loaded question that the media could have had a field day with. Cruz, however, gave a perfect answer — one that the White House is bound to hate.
According to the Huffington Post, the incident occurred at a campaign event in Des Moines, Iowa. When the questioner asked if Cruz was “one of those” who believed that President Obama wasn’t a Christian, Cruz responded brilliantly.
“The president’s faith is between him and God,” Cruz said. “I’m not going to speculate on the president’s faith.”
However, he wasn’t done.
“What I will talk about is his policies,” Cruz continued. “And his policies have been profoundly damaging to this country. His policies and this administration’s animosity to religious liberty and, in fact, antagonism to Christians has been one of the most troubling aspects of the Obama administration.”
Of course, if Cruz had answered that he had serious doubts as to Obama’s Christianity, the press would have been all over him the same way they’re going after Trump for his comments regarding Islam.
Never mind the fact that the number of times Obama attended church services as president as of late 2013 (18, according to The New York Times) was dwarfed by the number of times he had golfed over that same period (155, as per the Obama Golf Counter).
It doesn’t take a conspiratorial belief that President Obama is a secret Muslim plant to know that for a Christian, Barack Obama certainly seems antagonistic to his brothers and sisters “in Christ.” If he wants to call himself a follower of Christ, that’s fine — but it’s well within the rights of politicians like Ted Cruz to point out the base hypocrisy of Obama’s actions when it comes to Christianity.
