Ted Cruz Will Save Us From the Nonexistent Threat of Illegal Jesus

Written by SK Ashby

Republican presidential runner-up Ted Cruz spoke at a town hall meeting in South Carolina yesterday where he decried America for "threatening" a teenage girl with jail time if she said "the name of Jesus."

That would be astonishing and, not to mention, unconstitutional, if it were true. The good news it never happened.

Cruz was referring to a high school senior named Angela Hildenbrand who was told by school officials that she could not pray during her graduation speech, but she was never threatened with imprisonment. Furthermore, her high school was forced to back down.

The family of Corwyn Schultz, one of Hildenbrand’s high school classmates, filed a lawsuit against the Medina Valley Independent School District in 2011, challenging the fact that speakers at the high school graduation would often lead the audience in proselytizing prayers and invocations.

The district court judge sided with the Schultz family, ruling in a preliminary injunction that graduation prayers violate the Establishment Clause.

Cruz asked attendants at his town hall meeting "what kind of country are we living in" where girls are threatened for invoking Jesus.

He must have been referring to some other country because in America the law sided with the girl who wanted to pray.

I don't think I've ever wanted anything as much as Christians want to be persecuted.
