When the media uses the word “pastor” to describe the grifter, once illegal immigrant, father of Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, they are no doubt not going into any church building but merely quoting some checked mark, or line from one of his tax returns claiming tax exemption for his “religious” efforts to launder cash for the poor and needy? – with his mail order minister’s certificate???
So there was no "discussion" when Cruz accused the entire Democratic Party of "assaults on the church itself."
To Cruz, requiring faith-based hospitals and schools to match secular employers' insurance is about punishing churches and charging them for "violating their faith."
He talked about his religious liberty work in Attorney General Greg Abbott's office defending a Ten Commandments monument and the words "under God" in pledges.
"It is astonishing how frequently our religious liberty is under assault," Cruz said.
He introduced his father, Cuban immigrant Rafael Cruz, an evangelist with Carrollton-based Purifying Fire Ministries.
When it was Krause's turn, Ted Cruz described the young graduate of Jerry Falwell's Liberty University School of Law as a "warrior" and "extremely strong" in Austin.
Krause called for a state constitutional amendment upholding religious liberty. That's something voters elsewhere already defeated over concern about child abuse cases.
His comment on science included a remark about how many young adults support gay rights because they lack education in the "important role the traditional family has played in our culture."

PFI recently purchased a living room set for a single mother who did not have furniture for her and her small child. Thank you for your donations that helped in a spiritual, as well as practical way. The mother was overwhelmed and overtaken with tears of gratitude.
