Yeah, just like the 7 or so candidates in the 2012 election that said they'd been "told by God to run for President".

Ted Cruz runs as a strong Constitutionalist, but the Founding Fathers would be horrified to know that a candidate for President was trying to use religion to bolster his cause.
Separation of Church and State is a founding cornerstone of the Constitution, but for some reason, even though Ted Cruz says that he's a Constitutionalist, he ignores large parts of it when they're not convenience for his cause.
When the first Europeans swept into the northeast of the New World, far from finding a organizational blank canvass on which to create a brand new system of government, it should be part of the curriculum for students in the Americas to understand that they instead encountered a highly organized, very powerful alliance of six nations that controlled a giant expanse of territory, from the St. Lawrence river south into Pennsylvania and west into Illinois. The Iroquois League was, and still is, the oldest participatory democracy on Earth.
“God is a being that is very uncanny the way He’s very much like you and me. A being that stands somewhere around 6’-2”, 6’-3”, that weighs somewhere in the neighborhood of a couple of hundred pounds, little better, [and] has a [hand] span of nine inches across.” (Spirit, Soul and Body I, 1985, audiotape #01-0601, side 1)
“Jesus is no longer the only begotten Son of God.” (Now We Are In Christ Jesus, 1980, p. 24)
“You don’t think earth was first, do you? Huh? Well, you don’t think that God made man in His image, and then made earth in some other image? There is not anything under this whole sun that’s new. Are you hearing what I’m saying? This is all a copy. It’s a copy of home. It’s a copy of the Mother Planet. Where God lives, He made a little one just like His and put us on it.” (Following the Faith of Abraham I, 1989 audiotape, #01-3001, side 1)
