"Faux Christians like [Ted] Cruz use their faith as a bludgeon with which they attempt to force their narrow morality and world view onto all Americans. In their minds, there should be no separation of Church and State (the 1st Amendment’s Establishment Clause be damned). The American Taliban fervently believes their God should be our government; anything running counter to that conviction is by definition denying them their religious freedom. Their faith is the One, True, and ONLY faith, and those who don’t recognize that “truth” have sworn fealty to a false god…and are destroying America through their idolatry. Their evangelical zeal makes them just arrogant enough to believe they- and only they- have been ordained by God to turn America into an earthly Paradise designed to glorify Him.
"The stunning, epic arrogance and intolerance of those who, like Cruz, fervently claim the “right” (nay, obligation) to force their flavor of religion on all Americans is as dangerous as it is anti-democratic.
"As stunning and arrogant as it seems, there really is a class of people who believe with every fiber of their being that their God is a righteous, all-powerful deity who must, if America is to be truly great, be granted dominion over our government. These people clearly slept through American History in high school. They neither recognize nor acknowledge the self-interested, cherry-picked nature of their cafeteria Christianity. In the final analysis, it’s about “putting God back into government” only insofar as it serves their lust for political power.
"America deserves better than Ted Cruz and his base of ignorant, intolerant American Taliban xenophobes and zealots. We ignore the risk they present at our own peril."
