Throughout the presidential race, Cruz has been painting himself as not just the candidate of conservative Republicans and Tea Party members, but the candidate of Christians — or, at least, the Christians who share his particular brand of theology and politics.
he has vowed to implement their agenda with promises to defy the Supreme Court on gay marriage,
consider engaging in anti-gay civil disobedience,
sign sweeping anti-abortion legislation,
go after Planned Parenthood,
appoint ultraconservative justices to the bench and
block threats to religious liberty of Christians,
which he says are rampant in America. For good measure, he announced his candidacy at Liberty University, the institution founded by evangelical firebrand and conservative powerbroker Jerry Falwell.
the Texas senator is spouting toxic rhetoric about his ideological opponents and hyping purported threats to the religious liberty of American Christians, all while courting endorsements from the Religious Right’s most extreme wing.
At times, Cruz lifts his apocalyptic rhetoric about impending dangers to freedom straight from his most extreme supporters.
Cruz borrowed Deace’s line about a gay-led “jihad” threatening religious liberty on the stump and has pushed bogus persecution stories concocted by Religious Right groups about Christians coming under assault.

What’s good for Cruz is bad for our increasingly diverse country.
When Cruz portrays himself as the candidate of “the body of Christ” and claims God’s blessing — and embraces the most extreme wing of his party as he’s doing it — he signals not to just non-Christians but to Christians that don’t share his particular worldview that he’s not interested in working for them.
But that is the very reason why Cruz is the candidate who the Religious Right has desperately been seeking: someone who will give them his undivided attention in a country where they are terrified of losing relevance. - See more at: www.rightwingwatch.org...

Sorry but I think your constant fears of a theocracy are about as rational as the other sides fears of socialism.
Maybe back off on the propaganda for a while.
2 cents for what its worth.
