Ted Cruz’s father Rafael Cruz attacks political correctness, calls pro-choice ‘pro-death’

GOP presidential hopeful Ted Cruz’s father, Rev. Rafael Cruz didn’t hold back while speaking before an audience of evangelical Christians proclaiming abortion is murder and that there are moral absolutes pertaining to life and sexuality.

Cruz called on Americans to reject the politically correct language of liberals, such as “gay” for “homosexual” and “pro-choice” for abortion support.

“We have to stop being politically correct,” Rev. Cruz said in a report from CNS News.  “We have to stop acquiescing even to the wording that the liberals use. Just think about it,” he said.  “They talk about the issue of life. They say ‘pro-life’ or ‘pro-choice.’ That’s not the right word. It is ‘pro-life’ or ‘pro-death.’ It is ‘pro-life’ or ‘pro-murder.’”

Cruz went on to explain how the concept of tolerance is also used to advance the homosexual agenda, with tolerance used to silence opposition to the lifestyle.

“And so, it’s just like calling homosexuals ‘gays,’” Rev. Cruz said. “Gay means happy.”

“Then they try to delude it so it becomes socially acceptable,” he said, “and if you say anything against homosexual marriage, then oh, you’re not tolerant.”

The father of Senator Ted Cruz fled Cuba in 1957 at age 18, earning a degree in Mathematics from the University of Texas while working for 50 cents an hour. He earned political asylum in 1961 and became a naturalized citizen of the U.S. in 2005.

His Dallas church operates Christian ministries in Mexico and Central America.

Rev. Cruz has been continually outspoken about Biblical principles and morality, saying in 2013 that Obamacare would “destroy the elderly,” and that life is under attack in the United States.

“When you hear this attack on religion, it’s not really an attack on religion,” he told the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa. “The fundamental basis is this: Socialism requires that government becomes your god. That’s why they have to destroy the concept of God. They have to destroy all loyalties except loyalty to government.”
