Cruz's Father Wants Theocracy In The U.S.

   He also says that God told Heidi that Ted should run. Oh and:
That Rafael Cruz should cast his son's presidential campaign as a divinely inspired endeavor is not surprising. For years, he has been a freelancing evangelical who has promoted an extremely fundamentalist version of Christianity and decried those, including other Christians, who do not share his religious views. He has called for fundamentalist Christians to gain control of most aspects of American society, and he has issued a series of controversial statements blasting President Barack Obama, gay rights activists, and other spiritual enemies. As Mother Jones first reported, he called Obama an "outright Marxist" who "seeks to destroy all concept of God" and urged Americans to send him "back to Kenya."
   That piece is worth a read. It's pretty alarming. I expect there must be some exaggeration in there...but even if there's a lot, Cruz Sr. is still loony as hell.
   As Corn notes, the father doesn't necessarily speak for the son... But someone should obviously ask him about his degree of agreement with pops.
