| by Michael Allen

Republican Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rand Paul (R-Ky) were a big hit during the "Pastors and Pews" event in Des Moines, Iowa, last week.

Both men spoke in front of hundreds of pastors, who then gathered around them and prayed (video below), notes reporter David Brody on CBN.com.

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

Brody wrote of the event: "For all you liberals who think these conservative evangelicals are just praying for Republicans, that’s not true. At the beginning of their two-day event, they spent a good amount of time praying for President Obama. There was not one negative word said about him. All these folks want is to see America return to its Judeo-Christian principles."

Not mentioned by the pastors or Brody, was Sen. Paul's opposition to the 1964 Civil Rights Voting Act as it applied to private businesses noted ThinkProgress.org (video below).
