Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz recently spoke with Sean Hannity about President Obama’s comments that ‘serious’ Christians are most suspicious of others.
“… Here in the United States,” the President mused in a recent interview, “sometimes Christian interpretation seems to posit an ‘us versus them,’ and those are sometimes the loudest voices.”
He added a thinly veiled racial element to his analysis, saying “it seems as if folks who take religion the most seriously sometimes are also those who are suspicious of those not like them.”
Cruz responded to the comments by saying “the far-left – out of which Barack Obama arose – despises American leadership in the world” and has an antipathy towards Christians.
Via Fox News Insider:
“The far-left has always had a strong anti-American streak, and it’s always had an antipathy for Christians,” Cruz said.
He noted that Obama was four years ahead of him at Harvard Law School, asserting that Obama perfectly reflects the views that cast America as a negative force in the world.
“That is utter nonsense,” Cruz said. “America has been an incredible force of good in this world. No nation in the history of the world has spilled more blood or treasure for freedom.”
Cruz added that anti-American and anti-Christian statements such as Obama’s and those of his former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, are “stomach turning, but they actually reflect the views of the hard-left.”
