Religion stories pop up in the most unexpected places. For example, the barber chair.
That's where U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz found himself over the weekend as the Texas Republican campaigned for votes in his re-election bid against Congressman Beto O'Rourke, Cruz's well-financed Democratic challenger.
But was there really a religion angle in the snip, snip, snip?
Believe it or not, yes, as noted by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Bud Kennedy.
Check this off as example 3,127,629 why the religion beat is never boring.
Also, give credit to the Texas media who covered Cruz's retail politics (which later included Texas barbecue, which beats anything cooked in Tennessee, as I'm sure tmatt will attest) for not missing the faith angle.
The name of the barber shop offered the first clue: It's called Kingdom Cuts.
