We all know Ted Cruz is crazy. There was that time when he stood on the senate floor and spoke for almost 21 hours about… among other things… green eggs and ham.
But Ted Cruz did not fall far from the crazy tree. He is getting serious competition from his dad who recently told a group that the Bible specifies how they should vote.
“As a matter of fact, did you know that the Bible tells you exactly who to vote for?” Papa Cruz said. “Very, very clearly the Bible tells you who to vote for. Let me prove it to you.”
Papa cruise then began to “prove” his point by telling the story of Moses. He spoke of when Jethro – Moses’ father-in-law visited Moses and told him to select other “men” to help settle common disputes among the people, with the more serious disputes settled by Moses. Jethro’s conversation with Moses is detailed in Exodus 18. But it is verse 21 that Papa Cruz fashioned his voting message from. Jethro told Moses;
Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and placesuch over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.
Papa Cruz somehow made the connection that Jethro’s direction to Moses is the road map for voting. These four things that Jethro mentioned to Moses now means that Americans must adopt the same four qualities when selecting the “men” who will run this country – “able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness.”
Of course, it wouldn’t be a religious gathering if Papa Cruz didn’t go after the Democrat in the White House. After telling the audience about the four Biblical qualifications for voting, Cruz said, that you should vote for able men, not “the village idiot.”
According to Papa Cruz however, his own son Ted Cruz just got disqualified from running for office. He fails miserably in at least three out of the four “qualifications.” I would fail him in all four qualifications, but I refuse to share my opinion on whether Ted fears God. Of course Ted Cruz says he does, but his actions in the policies he pursues say otherwise.
