Ted Cruz’s father: ‘There Is An Attack On Christianity’ In America
(CNSNews.com) — Rev. Rafael Cruz, director of Purifying Fire Ministries and father of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), said the Christian church in America is under attack “more and more every day,” and noted that many pastors are afraid of losing their tax-exempt status if they speak out on political issues.
Cruz stressed, however, that “no church in America has ever lost it’s tax-exempt status for speaking on what’s happening in the country.”
Rev. Cruz made his comments on Thursday at the 2014 Watchmen on the Wall National Pastor’s Briefing, held by the Family Research Council May 21-23 in Washington, D.C.
Following his address to the attendees, CNSNews.com asked Rev. Cruz, “What do you think are some of the major problems facing the pastors in America today, and what would be your message to them?”
He said, “Well, I think the major challenge the pastors have is the pastors are afraid, and fear has come into the pastors because of lack of knowledge. And, you know, if the enemy can put fear into the hearts of the pastor, in essence the enemy accomplishes what he wants to do and that is to silence the pastors.”
Allowing government to manipulate and put the fear of man into Christian ministers will lead to the downfall of America because the government will then have the power to manipulate anyone for any belief.
