The father of Sen. Ted Cruz spoke this weekend at an Iowa “family” event co-sponsored by NOM.
In a fiery speech Saturday at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa, Pastor Rafael Cruz laid out a number of socialist doomsday scenarios that he claimed are playing out in the United States, likening President Barack Obama to Fidel Castro. “Socialism requires that government becomes your god,” he said, as quoted by The Des Moines Register. “That’s why they have to destroy the concept of God. They have to destroy all loyalties except loyalty to government. That’s what’s behind homosexual marriage.” Cruz said “our lives are under attack” due to the Affordable Care Act, the federal health care law widely known as “Obamacare.” “Obamacare is going to destroy the elderly by denying care, by even perhaps denying treatment to people who are in catastrophic circumstances,” the elder Cruz said.
