Ted Cruz’s Dad Is Completely Nuts, Thinks Evolution and Gay Rights Are ‘Communist Lies’

A video has surfaced recently of Rafael Cruz, father of Senater Ted Cruz, claiming that the gay rights movement and evolution are tools socialists use to aid “The destruction of the traditional family.” In a sermon he gave in June of this year, Cruz senior told his followers: “They [socialists] couldn’t care less about homosexuals. They want to destroy the family.”

He went on: “It’s just like evolution. You know most Americans have their head in the sand about evolution. I’ve met so many Christians that tell me that ‘evolution is a scientific fact’. Baloney! I am a scientist and there’s nothing scientific about evolution. But you know something? Karl Marx said it, “I can use the teachings of Darwin to promote Communism”. Why? Because communism, or call it socialism if you think communism is too hard a word, necessitates for government to be your God, and for government to be your God, you need to destroy the concept of God. That’s why Communism and evolution go hand in hand….if they can convince you that you came from a monkey, it is much easier to claim that God does not exist.”

Let’s get this straight – people fighting for gays to have the right to become families are actually trying to destroy families, and Charles Darwin discovered that species evolve over time due to natural selection, therefore the government is trying to be God.

Makes perfect sense!
