In an appearance before a gathering of OK2A, an Oklahoma Second Amendment advocacy group, Rafael Cruz, father of freshman Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said that atheism leads to sexual abuse of children.
In his talk, which took place earlier this month, the elder Cruz railed against atheism and secular humanism, which he said are two of the main ills facing our society.
“Let’s look, for example, at the behavioral consequences of these two foundations,” Cruz said to the group. “Well, if there is nothing, if there is no God, then we are ruled by our instincts.”
“There is no moral absolute, which means we operate by situational ethics,” he said, “which unfortunately is something being taught in every high school in America.”
Situational ethics, explained Cruz, maintain “that right and wrong depends on the situation. In other words, it’s a moral relativism.”
Because atheists believe in doing whatever they want, and if there are no moral absolutes, then there will be nothing but moral anarchy, he said.
“Do we know any politicians that have done that?” he asked.
“Hitler!” volunteered Larry Pratt of the organization Gun Owners of America, who was in the audience.
“Oh, we don’t have to go that far, Larry,” said Cruz. “Just go to Washington. Just go to the White House.”
“Of course, this leads us, when there are no moral absolutes,” he went on, “leads us to sexual immorality, leads us to sexual abuse, leads us to perversion and, of course, no hope. No hope!”

MSNBC convenes panel of white Republicans who say Biden shouldn’t pick ‘divisive’ VP
MSNBC talked to a panel of white Republican voters who said that they won't vote for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden if he picks a "divisive" woman to be vice president.
One member of the panel told correspondent Dasha Burns that he is "politically homeless" because of President Donald Trump.
"These are Republicans that feel lost in the current Republican Party," Burns explained. "And they are considering voting for Joe Biden."
"I have a very hard time -- as much as I don't want to vote for Trump -- voting for Biden if he were to nominate somebody or have somebody to be his running mate who is extremely divisive," Hal Ostrow said.
‘Oof, Jesus’: CNBC’s Jim Cramer rattled after Pelosi slams GOP amid stimulus negotiations
CNBC's Jim Cramer appeared rattled after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) went off on Republican lawmakers who have shown no urgency in passing a relief package to help the millions of Americans who have lost their jobs during the novel coronavirus pandemic.
While interviewing Pelosi, Cramer listed off policies about keeping businesses afloat and helping young people pay for college as something that he believed "both" Republicans and Democrats could agree to in the latest COVID-19 relief package.
"Perhaps you mistook them for somebody who gives a damn," Pelosi replied.
"Oof, Jesus," Cramer replied.
