According to a certain Christian sect very popular among elected conservatives, Ted Cruz is the Anointed King who will redistribute wealth. And why if liberals want to do it, distribution of wealth is Evil; but if Ted Cruz does it, it’s totally cool? The answer lies in a sermon delivered by Dominionist preacher Larry Huch at his megachurch August 26, 2012, where Ted Cruz’ father Rafael Cruz also delivered a sermon.

In 1997, metal music was pretty much over–grunge had killed it. But that year, Pat Boone released In a Metal Mood: No More Mr. Nice Guy, his white bread covers of metal music. It was his first hit album in 35 years. It also pissed off a lot of people because metal was supposed to be the music of SATAN and Pat Boone was an evangelical with a television program on Trinity Broadcast Network, Gospel America. After an appearance wearing black leather and studs on the American Music Awards, clad in his metal garb, he was fired from Gospel America.

Times must still be tough for Nic Cage. He’s offered himself up to

They’ve secreted themselves amongst our troops, even at the senior officer levels. They look just like everyone else. But they have an agenda, and they want to impose it on their comrades and their subordinates, no matter how uncomfortable it might make them feel, no matter how much it might disrupt morale and unit cohesion.

To judge by his column in today’s Washington Post, Michael Gerson demonstrates a surprisingly poor grasp of the evangelical world. To say (as Gerson does) that evangelicals fear big government is laughable. They love big government — as long as they get to run it.
