Glenn Beck says:
- Ted Cruz is God’s anointed candidate
- The Constitution is divinely-inspired
After my Religion News Service piece was published last week in The Washington Post, a few people criticized me for getting Cruz wrong. Cruz is not a dominionist, they said. No, he is simply trying to defend the constitution.
I don’t know if Beck speaks for Cruz when the radio host says that God inspired the Constitution. Beck does appear at his rallies. I assume Beck is there because Cruz invited him.
The video below was taken at a Cruz rally.
People are criticizing Cruz for being a liar. They are criticizing Cruz for not consistently applying his originalism to the current Supreme Court controversy. But very few are taking a deeper look at the theology behind his politics. Someone needs to ask Cruz if he endorses the things Beck says in this video.
Perhaps someone will ask him this week on CNN or later this month in Texas. I drew up a few questions here.
