“Wednesday night that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was “booed off the stage” at an event hosted by a purportedly Christian organization.
Cruz, the keynote speaker at the new “In Defense Of Christians” organization’s dinner in Washington DC, had offered the crowd–a number of whom were Christians from the Middle East, including Palestinian Christians—public support for Israel. After doing so, some members of the crowd booed at Cruz, and they persisted until he left the stage, noting their hatred and saying he can’t stand with them if they don’t stand with Israel.
“Tonight, in Washington, should have been a night of unity as we came together for the inaugural event for a group that calls itself ‘In Defense of Christians.’ Instead, it unfortunately deteriorated into a shameful display of bigotry and hatred,” Cruz said ….”When I spoke in strong support of Israel and the Jewish people, who are being persecuted and murdered by the same vicious terrorists who are also slaughtering Christians, many Christians in the audience applauded. But, sadly, a vocal and angry minority of attendees at the conference tried to shout down my expression of solidarity with Israel.
Cruz continued in his statement by noting that detractors “cannot shout down the truth,” and the American people “should not shy away from expressing the truth, even in the face of–especially in the face of–ignorance and bigotry.”
Because of the “bigotry and hatred,” Cruz said he had to leave the event.
“After just a few minutes, I had no choice,” Cruz said. “I told them that if you will not stand with Israel, if you will not stand with the Jews, then I will not stand with you. And then I walked off the stage.” full Breitbart article: here
There’s not much else to add to Sen. Cruz’s well articulate statement, except I don’t know how Christians couldn’t support Israel God only knows what they’ve been ‘taught’ or possibly, what they’ve rejected? Bu God stands with Israel. I stand with God . . . and so does Sen. Cruz. I couldn’t be prouder of my Senator.
