1. Yes, it creeps me out. Cruz could be an "end times" President. That's fucking scary.

2. Iowa Christians like this type of candidate

 

He is trying to get votes and it might just work in Iowa. However it won't work in NH where he will lose.

4. Cruz-Dominionist Deceiver, the scary Charismatic Reconstructionist of Right Wing Imperialism.

http://www.democraticunderground.com/107830331

snip to the third article:

Why should you care? In plain English this is a shift from an originally passive theology in which believers are waiting to be Raptured from the earth prior and escape imminent apocalyptic horrors, to a politicized theology in which believers must take control over society and government. End times narratives provide a blueprint for activism much like a platform defines goals of a political party. The narratives provide a clear picture of what we can expect from this particular stream of evangelicalism as it gains both religious and political clout and molds tomorrow's Religious Right.

5. It is! I've told people about this before and their eyes glaze over, they just don't get what's going

on with the Dominionists. Somehow, they think it's just some crazy stuff. Well, it is, but there are a lot of crazy people in the US. There's a fork in the road coming, and the US well might go off the cliff with this crazy crap. People use the god word in the US and many back off, they get a free pass and no taxes. So many in the US are F'ed up with religion of this nature!

6. The reason that I left the Southern Baptist Church is that the new preachers were departing from the

teachings of Christ. That was in early 2008. In the early 1990s we were being warned about the One World Order. Little did we know that there would be a move to the Right for Evangelical Christians to the Merchant Church style.

In the Fall of 2008, this church placed several hundred small flags all around the perimeter of the grounds that read McCain Palin. That ran off lots of others as the house of conservatism was really taking shape (after 8 years of Bush).

I hear that people are leaving the Church in droves now.

8. How come NASA doesn't use "pray_ah" to send its Rockets into Space. Or Google to run its searches?

 

Or 747 Pilots use prayer instead of fuel?

This is SCARY!

9. Disturbing

The fact that legitimate presidential contenders can use this kind of religious pageantry is disturbing, to say the least. If there were wise minds in the Republican field, something like this would take Cruz out of the running altogether.

10. I don't know who scares me most. Trump or Cruz?

Probably Cruz because he has a greater chance of pulling a Greg Stillson.

Trump is a buffoon but he is a wealthy buffoon with much to lose. I think Cruz really believes this shit.

12. It is sickly disturbing...

 

that these people on the religious right have any followers in any way associated with the political arena. NEVER, EVER, NEVER should the term "conservative" be remotely associated with these theocratic fascists.

13. DEVIL, COME OUT!

I was hoping to see TrusTED touched on the forehead, whereupon he wilts to the floor and is healed.

Really, Ted, this is weak tea for true believers. Couldn't you speak some tongues, do a little shaky dance, roll on the floor? Something?

Actually, to me, you look a little uncomfortable and maybe embarrassed.

I am not convinced.
