Ted Cruz’s father warns ‘new religion of America’ taking over

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz‘s father is warning of the religion he believes is taking over and destroying the United States.

Rafael Cruz appeared on “Line of Fire” radio Wednesday and told host Michael Brown that he feared a new religion of secular humanism was going to destroy the moral fiber of America.

“Our foundations have been eroded by secular humanism,” he told Brown. “By just destroying the family, by basically the moral values that have made America great have been practically destroyed and we have secularized America and the new religion of America is secular humanism.”

Cruz insisted that he is not for imposing a theocracy but does want to see American values restored.

“The Bible says, ‘If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?'” he said.

For its part, the Council for Secular Humanism website describes itself as “nonreligious, espousing no belief in a realm or beings imagined to transcend ordinary experience.”

  1. Friend of St. Fank says:

    Ted Cruz’ father has multiple children from multiple partners, claims that he got his degree to be a minister from a non-existent college, is not the minister of any church anywhere or affiliated with any regions organization. Further, his Bible ‘quote’ isn’t. I think he may be part of the problem rather the solution. Christians do know how to deal with the issues of secular humanism which has been going on since the 70s-not a new thing at all.

  2. Friend Of St. Frank says:

    Ted Cruz father has multiple children from multiple partners and has been married and divorced at least 3 times. He has no relationship with any x-wife or any of his children except Ted who has no relationship with his mother or any of his half siblings. This man claims he graduated from a non-existent bible college, is not the minister of any church and is not affiliated with any religious organization, just a one man give me money show. Further, his quote from the Bible is not in the Bible, I guess that is why it is a general ‘quote’ not a scriptural one. So, I am not sure he ought to be talking until he cleans up his own life.

    Secular Humanism has been around since the 70s and is not a new thing. I think Christians know how to deal with this and yes, it is a problem, when laws push it on people. However, I am much more concerned about radical Islam and its spread than secular humanism.

    1. Rose says:

      You are so wrong about Ted Cruz’s father. And what Bible do you read? My Bible says: If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” Psalm 11:3. You are wrong about radical Islam being a bigger threat than Secular Humanism. A Constitutional Republic cannot last long without Christianity. When the moral fiber of a nation has eroded, they vote in people like Obama who votes to kill innocent babies, is hostile to Christianity, divides the people, hates those in authority over us (like the police), promotes perverted lifestyles, lies, dismantles our military, makes agreements with our enemies that are beneficial to them, tries to get as many people as possible dependent on the government, scorns our allies, minimizes the real threat of radical Islam, etc. etc. A godly President would have done much more to protect us from radical Islam. Instead, we are becoming more and more a godless nation. Psalm 9:17: The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.

      1. AbbyRhodes says:

        A constitutional democracy under the us constitution does not, by definition, endorse Christianity or any other religion.

        1. siridh says:

          But the founders all, whether they believed in it or not, knew the Bible was the source of morality. The freedom from religion they espoused had to do with the government not forcing a religion on its citizens; that is, you could choose to be Catholic, protestant, Church of England, Anglican, whatever. That was the fight they had seen in England, Scotland and Ireland and the one they were trying to avoid. Letting Islam in NEVER entered their minds. From Jefferson’s reaction to the Barbary Pirates, its obvious he knew nothing about Islam.

          1. EnuffBull says:

            The founding fathers, part of the enlightenment and anti-theocratic societies, found morality and reason in pre-bible Greek philosophy.

          2. Shaeri says:

            Backup please. Look to wallbuilders for mine.

          3. EnuffBull says:

            Wallbuilders as in David “Worst History Researcher and Liar” Barton’s political front movement for Dominion-control rewriting of American history?
            No. Thank. You.

          4. Rose says:

            David Barton is one of the most accurate historians of our day.

          5. EnuffBull says:

            Replace “most accurate historians” with “least accurate charlatan” and your statement might be true.

            “The Jefferson Lies: Exposing the Myths You’ve Always Believed About Thomas Jefferson (published April 10, 2012) was voted “the least credible history book in print” by the users of the History News Network website. A group of 10 conservative Christian professors reviewed the work and reported negatively on its claims, saying that Barton has misstated facts about Jefferson. In August 2012 Christian publisher Thomas Nelson withdrew the book from publication and stopped production, announcing that they had “lost confidence in the book’s details” and “learned that there were some historical details included in the book that were not adequately supported.”

          6. Rose says:

            Same here, Shaeri!

        2. Rose says:

          I know, but we were founded on Judeo-Christian principles. I believe that’s what made our country great. James Madison, a devout Bible scholar, was the father of the Constitution.

          1. JasonRMJ says:

            It’s just prove that Christians like “you” will knowingly believed in flat out lies to support “your” agenda, out of the sake of your flawed ideology.

      2. James Wagers says:

        Very well said Rose and thank you.

        1. Rose says:

          Thank you, James.

      3. Patriot1119 says:

        a constitutional democratic republic, such as the usa, is a secular form of government with nothing in common with a theocracy, including bowing to clerics. while morals can come from any religion or group of individual beliefs gathered together as a code, no two groups will ever be in total agreement as to what constitutes morality – the morality of the french is different from the morality of the english, the morality of hindus is different from budhists which is different from taoists, which is different from pagans, which is different from christians. each group may have some tenets of morality in common with another group but there will always be disagreement among men as to whose moral code is superior.

        WTF is old man cruz bumping his gums about? he’s making noises, trying to rile up the masses with little-to-do over nothing – lifting one verse out of context cannot give you a clear picture of the meaning. has anybody even bothered to read the entire contents of psalm 11? god takes care of the righteous, so what is there to worry about??? the term nation as used in the bible, partiularly the old testament, refers to a uniquely identifiable group of a people – the nation of israel or the nation of judaism, the nation of rome or the nation of christians, the nation of pagans, etc., not to a plot of land on a map (see http://strategyleader.org/peop…. here is psalm 11:

        “To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

        1 In the Lord put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?

        2 For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.

        3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?

        4 The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord’s throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.

        5 The Lord trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.

        6 Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.

        7 For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.”

        and then you include a verse from psalm 9 – again i say you cannot understand what is meant when you lift one verse out of context. here is psalm 9:

        “To the chief Musician upon Muthlabben, A Psalm of David.

        1 I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.

        2 I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.

        3 When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence.

        4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in the throne judging right.

        5 Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.

        6 O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and thou hast destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them.

        7 But the Lord shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment.

        8 And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.

        9 The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.

        10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

        11 Sing praises to the Lord, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings.

        12 When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.

        13 Have mercy upon me, O Lord; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:

        14 That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.

        15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.

        16 The Lord is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.

        17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.

        18 For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.

        19 Arise, O Lord; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight.

        20 Put them in fear, O Lord: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.”

        again, there is no need for panic among the good and righteous – god takes care of them. when taken in context the word nation is referring to a specific group of beings – the unrighteous and wicked – not to a nation as a plot of land on a map like the usa. you have to understand the biblical definitions of terms in the bible to get the message correctly when read in context.

      4. Patriot1119 says:

        and keep in mind that the bible does not promise happiness in this world or life, but in the next where the faithful will dwell in the presence of the lord for all eternity – and this is your reward for following all he commands of you now and will command of you then, living in his presence is all the happiness you should seek:

        http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/does-the-bible-promise-happiness/

        1. Rose says:

          The faithful will dwell in the presence of the Lord throughout all eternity not because they were good enough, but because they accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

    2. Grey Winters says:

      Secular humanism is cultural Marxism and has infested and is devouring our youth while most empty headed people think its just a harmless phase. But I have to agree on Teddy Rafael Cruz is one fucked up politician.

  3. Tiger says:

    He is right and hopefully we can get our Republic back.

    1. Rose says:

      Amen to that!

  4. tsigili says:

    There is no question, the liberals are all entirely anti-Christian, but they are hardly secular……..they are pro-Islam.

    1. EnuffBull says:

      Well, there you go. The stupidest lying comment on the internet for the win.

    2. Rose says:

      You got that right!
