Ted Cruz’s Dad: Crime And Teen Pregnancy Occur Because Of No School Prayer
If only schools forced children to pray, says Rafael Cruz, teen pregnancy and crime would be a thing of the past. “The church should be influencing” every area of society,he intones. But which church, eh?
“The church should be influencing the media, should be influencing arts and entertainment, sports, education, business and, yes, government,” he added, just so happening to list five of the seven pillars of Seven Mountains Dominionism.
To illustrate this, Cruz listed various instances where he claims the “church remained silent”: the 1963 ruling eliminating government-sponsored prayer in schools, because of which, he claimed, “teen pregnancy skyrocketed and violent crime skyrocketed”; Roe v. Wade; and the Supreme Court’s decision striking down part of the Defense of Marriage Act, which he said led to the “erosion of the traditional family.”
