Televangelist Kenneth Copeland has proclaimed that Ted Cruz has been chosen by God to be the next President of the United States. Whenever religious folks start telling us God has chosen someone to be our leader, it should be worrisome.
There is the whole separation of church and state issue. Should church leaders be telling us who to vote for?
There is the issue that someone is actually making this proclamation in the first place. Really? Just how do you know this? How do we know the other people saying their favorite candidate was chosen by God aren’t the ones that are correct.
And then there is the issue, that in my mind, if God has decided to implement right wing policies in the United States, isn’t He powerful enough to make any President do it, say Obama, without actually putting Ted Cruz in office?
Oh wait, that’s right, Obama is the Antichrist.
