No comment department

Politically, I lean very much to the right, but I have always thought there is something a little creepy about Ted Cruz. His deplorable behavior at the recent In Defense of Christians gathering provided a moment of clarity, confronting evangelical Christians with the choice of remaining true to the faith they confess or following the carnival barkers of "movement conservatism" off the ideological cliff. Now, to the surprise of no one who knows the background story behind this whole sorry episode, Cruz has poured salt into the wounds he inflicted on persecuted Middle East Christians by emblazoning this banner across his website.


It is hardly necessary to dignify such naked political opportunism with any further comment, especially since Rod Dreher has already done an excellent job of filling in all the details.
