Trump claims that Ted Cruz is a "liar-liar with his pants on fire" while Ted proclaims he is a full blown card carrying messenger of the man upstairs.

Given Cruz' track record I'm inclined to agree with the Donald.

If Ted Cruz is the Christian how does he square that with insidious rhetoric about "carpet bombing" some of God's creatures off the face of the planet? Is that God speaking through Ted or just Ted pitching to the crowd? God teaches;

Matthew 6:7-15

Jesus said, "When you are praying, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. 'Pray then in this way: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not bring us to the time of trial, but rescue us from the evil one. For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses."

When Texas Sen. Ted Cruz took the stage at Liberty University last March to launch his bid for the White House, both the location of his announcement and the first words of his campaign made his election strategy clear: he wants conservative religious votes.

“God bless Liberty University,” Cruz said of the evangelical Christian school, eliciting a peal of cheers from the roughly 10,000 people in attendance. He added: “I am thrilled to join you today at the largest Christian university in the world.”

Cruz went on to deliver a speech riddled with references to right-wing Christianity, marching around the stage with the air of a revival preacher. But the whole spectacle was a bit misleading: It was later revealed that students were required to attend the convocation, sparking grumblings that Cruz was exaggerating his popularity with evangelicals.
