In a sermon at an Irving megarchurch last year, Ted Cruz’s father spelled out a very interesting theory about who his son really is. He described Ted as one of the “kings” meant to control society, and then “bring the spoils of war to the priests,” which will result in a “great transfer of wealth”. Of course, this transfer is from the “wicked” to evangelical Christians. How does giving all your money to evangelical Christian priests sound to you?
This is the “Seven Mountains” mandate cherished by some of the most extreme extremist Christians. This is the biblical interpretation in which “seven culture-shaping areas of influence over each society-media, government, education, economy, family, religion, and celebration (arts and entertainment)” are “the keys to taking a nation for the kingdom of God”.
Ted Cruz appears to agree that he’s a prophesied king. In July, dominionist pastors blessed and anointed Cruz as a “king” of the government “area of influence”. He bowed his head in the prayer circle and accepted the anointment.
This is the same prophecy promoted by the lunatic David Barton, a Texas televangelist who recently claimed global warming is punishment from “God” — and who is thinking about trying to join Ted Cruz in the Senate by challenging Sen. Cornyn in the GOP primary. Maybe Barton thinks he’s a king too! Maybe they’ll join together with Rand Paul, who’s also been anointed as such, to form a “King Caucus” in the Senate.
But think about this for a second. If Ted Cruz is a “king,” he’s not really in the Senate for Texas, or for America. In fact, as a king, he must despise America — he wants to “take the nation” for the “kingdom of God”. That means burn the Constitution; it’s time for law dictated by a slavery-endorsing, woman-hating, lobster-banning book from the Bronze Age.
Reporters uncovered video recently of Rafael Cruz calling for President Obama to be sent “back to Kenya”. Pure, unfiltered insanity. In the last year, the senior Cruz has called marriage equality a “socialist plot,” compared the president to Fidel Castro, and said progressives are trying to “destroy the concept of God”.
It’s not a surprise that this is Sen. Cruz’s ilk, but it is extremely worrying. Sorry, that should read king Cruz.
