Rafael Cruz, the father of U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), asserted on Tuesday that banning discrimination against transgender people would mean that football teams could “shower with girls.”
Speaking on a conference call with E.W. Jackson, Cruz said that if conservative Christians did not vote or run for office then America just had “the wicked electing the wicked.”
According to Cruz, a non-discrimination ordinance that included protections for transgender people in Houston was a direct attack on the church.
“An ordinance was passed by city council with a blessing of the mayor that allows men to walk into women’s bathrooms,” Cruz insisted. “It even would allow kids to make football teams to go shower with the girls.”
“That is a recipe for disaster, for sexual predators, for who knows what,” he continued. “So my call to every Christian is, enough, we can no longer sit comfortable on the pews. And, pastors, you cannot continue to hide behind the pulpit. God will hold you accountable.”
Cruz added that Christians must “stand against all the ungodliness that is being promoted throughout our government.”
“You see, we’ve got to realize that the government is promoting a religion,” he opined. “And the religion they are promoting is the religion of secularism. And it is the antithesis of Christianity.”

President Donald Trump reaffirmed his desire to buy Greenland in discussion with reporters Sunday.
The president was returning to Washington, D.C. when he stopped at the airport in Morristown, New Jersey. New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman asked the president about his desire to buy the country from Denmark.
"Greenland, I don't know. It got released somehow," Trump said of the news about his desire to buy the country. "It's something we talked about. Denmark essentially owns it. We're very good allies with Denmark. We protect Denmark like we protect large portions of the world. So the concept came up, and I said, strategically, it's interesting. And we'd be interested. We'll talk to them a little bit. It's not number one on the burner; I can tell you that."
