Ted Cruz Picks the Constitution Over "Christian America"

Ted Cruz has condemned Ben Carson's comments about racism and the presidency. Here is a taste of a Washington Post  article:


Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz argued Sunday that fellow contender Ben Carson’s views against electing a Muslim president run contrary to the U.S. Constitution.
“You know, the Constitution specifies there shall be no religious test for public office and I am Constitutionalist,” the Texas Republican said during the taping of “Iowa Press” at Iowa Public Television, The Des Moines Register reported.
Of course Cruz is using Carson's statements for political gain and to prove to his Tea Party supporters that he is a defender of the Constitution.  But what this also means is that Ted Cruz is willing to constitutionally defend a Muslim president in what he hopes to be a "Christian nation."
I am guessing that while Cruz thinks Muslims are constitutionally able to be President, he would certainly not want to vote for one himself, even if he or she was a conservative Republican who respected the Constitution.
Everything about Cruz seems to suggest that he wants America to be a Christian nation.  Moreover, defenders of a Christian nation seems to think Cruz is one of them.  Why else would David Barton be running a Cruz Super-PAC.
Someone should ask Cruz to reconcile his love of the Constitution and his promotion of a "Christian nation."
