Wife Of GOP Candidate Says 'ChristiansÂ Are Loving People, Are Nonjudgmental People, But There Is Right And Wrong'
Heidi Cruz says her husband's campaign, and, if elected, presidency, exist "to show this country the face of the God that we serve." Perhaps unaware of the Constitution, she believes Ted CruzÂ is "uniquely able to deliver" a "combination of the law and religion."
Speaking withÂ South Carolina radio host Vince Coakley while campaigning for her husband, Heidi Cruz (photo, to Ted Cruz's left) insisted "this Christian God that we serve is the foundation of our country."
Explaining why she is supporting and campaigning for her husband, Heidi Cruz said "we are at a cultural crossroads in our country" and that she feels she and her husband "can be in this race to show this country the face of the God that we serve â€” this Christian God that we serve is the foundation of our country, our country was built on Judeo-Christian values, we are a nation of freedom of religion, but the God of Christianity is the God of freedom, of individual liberty, of choice and of consequence."
Cruz has taken an unpaid leave of absence from her job as anÂ investment manager atÂ Goldman Sachs to campaign for her husband.Â
She went on to say that, "I think thatâ€™s something that this country really needs to be reminded of, is that Christians are loving people, are nonjudgmental people, but there is right and wrong, we have a country of law and order, there are consequences to actions and we must all live peaceably in our own faiths under the Constitution. And Ted is uniquely able to deliver on that combination of the law and religion."
Right Wing Watch, which first reported Cruz's comments, notes thatÂ Cruzâ€™s father RafaelÂ has implied Ted Cruz "wasÂ chosen by GodÂ for the White House," and said his so is "running for president to 'share the love of Jesus Christ' with â€œevery person in America.'"
Ted Cruz has invoked God and religion frequently in his campaign, like when he claimed gay people areÂ waging a "jihad" against Christians, and when heÂ suggested gay people should stop advocating for equal rights because of the violence ISIS perpetrates against both gays and Christians.
