2016 Ted Cruz

@tedcruz I think there are #muslimneighborhoods near me but I’m not sure where. Can you please ask them to wear #armbands? And consider building a wall around said neighborhoods?

Honestly.
 
Ted: you are not that ugly. If you really believe in what Jesus said (remember, he’s that guy at the heart of that religion you profess so often), call Pope Francis and ask his advice. Because the pope seems to get it.
 
I think I can not dislike Ted Cruz more, and then he goes and says something even more appalling. I fear that this man looks in the mirror each morning and sees himself as the Third Coming. How could such an ego possibly do the hard, tender work of taking care of the poorest and the neediest, to help raise them up rather than pound them down?
 
I cannot stand Ted Cruz. I literally cannot stand anything about him. So here’s what I’m going to do: I’m gonna love him.
 
I’m not going to vote for him – oh, heavens, no – and I’m not going to sugarcoat my thoughts about his platforms. We disagree on everything. He is the LAST person I would want to see as our country’s president.
 
But hating Ted Cruz isn’t going to help him, or the USA, or me, so I refuse to go that route.
 
Instead, I am going to love him, on purpose, with the purest and most genuine agape love I know.
 
I am going to LOVE HIM AS I WOULD HAVE PEOPLE LOVE ME. I am going to pray daily for him that his heart opens and he learns what true strength is, not ‘posing’ strength. I am going to pray that his soul begins to stop being so self-important and that he learns he truly IS important, no more so and no less so than any other child of God. I am going to pray for him, and pray for him, and pray for him, genuinely, compassionately, and with intent for good.
 
If we don’t love this man and help him learn true goodness, how much more dangerous might he become?
 
Cruz, son: do you think it’s maybe possible that Satan has got hold of you and is moving your lips for you? That would also account for the weird shape of your mouth when you are talking. It tells me that even you, the deep you that’s inside and actually wants to do good, doesn’t like the utter tripe that comes out of your mouth.
 
I don’t #TrustTed at all…but I’m willing to love him.
 
I hope you will too. I’m not kidding. I’m absolutely serious. Every time you hear Cruz’s name, please open your heart, set your feelings aside, and genuinely pray for him. Not to win the presidency. To learn to love.
 
And while you’re at it, instead of asking for police to keep a sharp eye on your Muslim neighbors, will you put out your hand and ask how you can help? Because hearing Cruz today, they must feel today as blacks did in the early part of the 1900’s, seeing folks put sheets over their heads.
 
America, we can do better. Please help by sharing this message. #LoveTheHateOut
 
Thank you,
Katie
