Cruz, Huckabee, Jindal preach religionism at National Religious Liberties Conference

• Cruz: "Any president that doesn't start the day on his knees isn't fit to be commander in chief,"
• Huckabee: same-sex marriage "is not law."
• Jindal: "ardently citing the need for a religious revival in the U.S." told the room that 2016 will be "the most important election of our lifetime"

Cruz, Huckabee, Jindal preach conservative principles

U.S. Republican presidential candidate Texas Sen. Ted Cruz speaks at the Freedom 2015 National Religious Liberties Conference in Des Moines, Iowa, Nov. 6, 2015.

Passionately professing that the Supreme Court decision allowing same-sex marriage must be overturned and laying out their conservative credentials, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal pulpiteered to over 1,700 conservative Christians in Des Moines, Iowa, Friday for a two-day National Religious Liberties Conference.

Before hearing from the presidential contenders, evangelical families collected name tags, perused a table filled with books like "What does the Bible Say About That: A Biblical Worldview Curriculum for Children" and connected with other like-minded conservatives. In the dimly lit hall, Kevin Sawnson, executive director of Generations, which was hosting the event, set the tone in describing same-sex marriage as a "significant cosmic revolution against almighty God."

In the video, Cruz says believers are persecuted in the US:
