Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) rallied evangelical Christians in a campaign event in Des Moines, Iowa, on Friday, warning against threats to religious liberty.
“These threats have been growing, they have been growing for decades, but never have the threats been greater to religious liberty than they are right here and now today,” the Republican presidential candidate told a crowd of over 2,500 attendees, according to CNN.
“These threats are not imagined, they’re not made up. These are real people leading real lives who found themselves facing persecution simply for living out their faith. There is a war on faith in America today.”
