A Time for Action

Everyone knows that too many people of faith are missing on Election Day – but will they return to the ballot box in 2016? In January on Eagle Forum Live, Phyllis Schlafly interviewed Reverend Rafael Cruz, author of the just-released book A Time for Action: Empowering the Faithful to Reclaim America.

Reverend Rafael Cruz was born in Cuba under an oppressive dictator. He began fighting Batista’s regime as a teenager, and was subsequently imprisoned and tortured.

As a youth, Cruz was initially captivated by the rhetoric of Fidel Castro, who spoke of hope and change, but Cruz explained how the grand promises of Communism fell flat in his native Cuba, inspiring him to join the conservative movement and campaign for Reagan in 1980. As he raised his family in Texas, Rafael often told his son Ted, “When we faced oppression in Cuba, I had a place to flee to. If we lose our freedom here, where do we go?”

Now, as a minister, Cruz calls on the nation’s pastors to address politics and culture in their congregations, confronting corruption and empowering the church to support political candidates who lead with integrity. He often quotes Exodus 18, in which Israel is urged to ”…select out of all the people able men who fear God, men of truth, those who hate dishonest gain.” ‘If people of faith do not participate in politics, the only thing left will be the wicked electing the wicked!’ Cruz warned on Eagle Forum Live.

After escaping Cuba and arriving in Texas in 1957 on a student visa, Rafael Cruz found a job as a dishwasher making 50 cents an hour. He worked his way through the University of Texas while learning English, and later went on to build a small business. Cruz is the father of U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, a constitutional conservative from Texas and candidate for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.
