Tony Perkins: If We Don’t Elect a Christian, ‘We May Not Have Another Election’
The Ted Cruz campaign is pulling out the big guns to woo the evangelical voters of South Carolina. (I say “big guns” in the most Christian way possible.) Tony Perkins introduced Glenn Beck at a recent Cruz rally, holy-rolling his way through the whole speech.
Perkins came with hellfire and brimstone in no short supply, telling the crowd that because of who he is and where he works, he knows “America is in trouble.”
“If we’re honest with ourselves,” he said after a few awkward attempts at jokes, “we know that America needs prayer.”
It got worse and even more ominous:
We don’t have the latitude to get it wrong one more time. If we don’t elect a bold, courageous, godly leader in this next election, I’m afraid we may not have another election for our republic. That’s not hyperbole. That’s the reality based upon what this president’s policies have done to this nation.
In other parts of his speech, he talked about the ways in which “the left” have “decimated” the military, which probably didn’t sit too well with our armed service members serving overseas, but what do I know? There’s a reason (or 76) he’s the head of the Family Research Council and I’m not.
