Ted Cruz: 'No Meaningful Risk of Christians Committing Terrorism'
After a week of hearing liberals shout their #Christianophobia because a few dummies or may not have complained about a coffee cup, they can all take their "Islamophobia" post-Paris attacks and shove it where the sun don't shine. One guy who's had enough? Ted Cruz. (NOTE: transcript of his comments are below, but not found in the video of the same speech).
Again, while not in this clip, he did have this to say from the same event...
"There is no meaningful risk of Christians committing acts of terror. If there were a group of radical Christians pledging to murder anyone who had a different religious view than they, we would have a different national security situation. But it is precisely the Obama administration’s unwillingness to recognize that or ask those questions that makes them so unable to fight this enemy. Because they pretend as if there is no religious aspect to this."

Here's how the rest of this conversation goes:
LEFTIST: Christians are just as bad! They bomb abortion clinics and we don't call them Christian terrorists.
ME: Your party calls Christians terrorists because they think killing babies is bad and have a different opinion than you about anything. Also, when was the last time a Christian bombed an abortion clinic? The amount of times it's ever happened in the history of the country can be counted on one hand of a fireworks-accident victim.
LEFTIST: I NEED A SAFE SPACE!
Firstly, it goes without saying that he is absolutely correct. There is no equivalency between the heinous acts carried out in the name of Islam vs. those of Christianity in 2015. Even historically, while yes, Christianity (namely a corrupt church) has been riddled with problems, it is even harder to find a time under Islamic rule even speckled with freedom, peace and tolerance.
Again the extreeeeeme example of Islam is Muhammad. A terrorist. If we scale it back, moderate Islam can be found in the UAE, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, hell even Muslims in Europe where homophobia homokillia, human-rights violations and actual "rape culture" exist.
The extreeeeme example of Christianity is Christ. Scale it back, and at worst you get Joel Osteen. Spot the difference?
Secondly, Ted Cruz has remained low key for the most part (with some notable exceptions, you can read about here) but he's starting to make his break in the primary.
SIDENOTE: He'll actually be on the program this week, both live and in video-format.
See this is where Ted Cruz shines. When he takes an adversarial position. He's the kind of candidate who performs better under pressure, and better when dealing with debate. He's not as strong in a laid-back conversation among friends, which could hurt his relate-ability. But that could be worked on.
