When John Boehner called Ted Cruz “Lucifer in the flesh” last night, he probably wasn’t trying to be rude, just honest. Unfortunately, the former Speaker of the House failed to consider how Lucifer might feel.
“Cruz’s failures of reason, compassion, decency, and humanity are products of his Christian pandering, if not an actual Christian faith,” Temple spokesperson Lucien Greaves told Patheos in a statement. “It grows tedious when pedophile priests and loathsome politicians are conveniently dismissed as Satanic, even as they spew biblical verse and prostrate themselves before the cross, recruiting the Christian faithful. Satanists will have nothing to do with any of them.”
