A review of statements
that U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas)
has made about religious liberty: 

“The Pilgrims risked everything so that they could worship the Lord with all their hearts, minds, souls, and strength. The founders enshrined this right to live according to our faith in the First Amendment, and we must continue to celebrate and safeguard citizens’ God-given rights.

“As we have witnessed an unprecedented attack on citizens’ first freedoms, Ted Cruz continues to champion Americans’ religious liberty.

….

“As a presidential candidate, Ted Cruz has hosted two national religious liberties rallies and has brought together Christians who have been persecuted for their beliefs so that people across the country can listen to their stories and stand united for our first freedom.

“On day one, a President Cruz will instruct the Department of Justice, the IRS and every other federal agency that the persecution of religious liberty ends today.”
