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.”

    Sorry Ted I am a constitutionalist… I believe that to be president of the United States you must be a natural born citizen, as written in our constitution. YOU are NOT ! ! !

      Ted Cruz states he denounced his duel Citizenship from Canada and then states he is a Latino. I go to find out if after 40 Years is it possible to denounce your Citizenship from another Country, I don’t know.

    I wish Sen. Cruz would hurry up and do the right thing, by clarifying that he is not eligible for the top job, for not being a “natural born”citizen – that is, one born on the soil of two (in this case, U.S.) citizen parents; the clear historical intent of the constitutional Framers, with much evidence to that fact – and pointing out that neither is Obama, so that we can get back to the rule of law in this country. Before we descend so far into corruption that it will be impossible to get out of that dark hole, and we degrade into tyranny – inevitable when you open to the rule of men – and subsequent civil war.

    We don’t need that experience, to learn our lessons. Come on, Ted. Do the right thing. And save the nation that worse outcome, than facing up to the Truth.

      Civilization is made up by enforcing the Law and Order. A Country is defined by it’s borders. If we ignore this fact we will no longer be a Country or a Nation of Laws . Remember Bobby Jindal stated that his Mother was 6 months pregnant when they came to America and he calls it a Pre-existing condition in response to the Term: Anchor Baby. You can rise in America, but I have some serious doubts you can do so well from nothing to a fortune. Why is it that no one had challenged him about his Citizenship when he ran for Governor.
