Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz gave a speech at Liberty University to declare that religious Americans are under attack from Washington.

According to ABC News on April 2, Cruz told the university students that religious Americans have a duty to take a stand against policies that threaten their religious beliefs. He said:

"As believers, we are called o action; not just sitting quietly and hiding our faith under a bushel, but to stand and speak no matter what the consequence. Religious liberty has never been more under attack."

Liberty University, located in Virginia, was founded by the late Rev. Jerry Falwell to test his message to college-aged evangelicals, who are a critical voting group for Republicans who have ambitions of occupying the White House.

Cruz was at the university to promote his new book, which shares his story about his beliefs and his rise to Congress. Cruz has a book deal with publishing magnet HarperCollins, in which the Washington Examiner reported was worth $1.5 million.

Cruz also urged the students to oppose politicians who press secular priorities over Christian values.
