Cruz Urges Students to Fight for Religious Freedom

Ad Feedback

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has taken the challenge to stand up for First Amendment freedom to college students at Liberty University.

Speaking at the Virginia school's Wednesday convocation, the potential presidential candidate said religious liberty has never been more under attack.

Cruz specifically challenged students to push back against Obamacare's contraception mandate. He said the law requires owners of businesses like Hobby Lobby to provide birth control coverage regardless of their religious beliefs.

"We are called to action - as believers we are called to action. Not to sitting quietly and hiding our faith under a bushel. But to stand and speak, no matter what the consequence," Cruz said.

Cruz said the students have the power to change the country if they live out their faith and stand united.

The Tea Party favorite has strongly hinted he'll make a run for president in 2016.
