Rafael Cruz Declares Son Ted Cruz 'The Anointed One'

<snip>

Rafael Cruz has some deep connections to the current movement known as the New Apostolic Reformation. That movement is really a rebranding of what we know as the "Religious Right", as they were called in the days of Reagan, but with a 21st century dominionist twist. Cruz was a member of the Religious Roundtable in the 1980s, an activist group of Christians who were committed to engagement in politics. He boasts in the interview of serving on the state board of that organization:

This was a coalition of Christians and Jews who was very instrumental in helping Reagan get elected. I was on the state board of the Religious Roundtable, so when my son Ted was eight years old, all we talked about around the dinner table was politics because I was so involved with the Reagan campaign. So during that time is when I asked him so many times, ‘You know Ted, when I lost my freedom in Cuba I had a place to come to. If we lose our freedoms here where are we going to go? There is no place to go.’

Rafael Cruz is a pastor with Purifying Fire Ministries founded by Suzanne Hinn, ex-wife and then wife again of Benny Hinn. The Hinns are huckster Christians, dealing in faux emotions and invented manifestations of the Holy Spirit at the most convenient and opportune fundraising moments. They are also smart enough to understand where the gravy train is, and so they've hitched their boxcar to the New Apostolic, or dominionist movement.

So has Rafael Cruz. He delivered a sermon in August, 2012 where he discusses how Christians should "take dominion over the earth." Cruz goes on to define what that means, saying "dominion is over every area -- society, education, government, economics..." That particular moment happens 1 hour and 12 minutes in, if you care to watch. It's instructive to see him deliver that line with dictatorial passion.

1. So Cruz comes from a family of dominionists? They are the ones who

want the bible, and specifically Leviticus, to be the law of the land. They call for a return to stonings (to death) of adulterers, recalcitrant children, gays, feminists, and assorted others of whom they disapprove.

7. These clowns

and hucksters need to take their religion, go home and keep it to themselves. This is not a christian nation and they have to get that through their delirious heads. I want all religion out of my government. This is one of the main reasons I despise organized religion, it has become (though I have long believed the primary purpose of all organized religions) population control devices designed to set peoples against each other for the sake of a select few holding power over everyone else based on fear and guilt.
