Examples of textbook in a Sentence

  1. Farris Wilks:

    America has always been a land of opportunity. Its the one place on earth where you can go from building brick walls in the Texas heat to the kind of success my brother and I have achieved, ted Cruz believes in the opportunity society, he believes in the dignity of hard work, and hes not afraid to fight for what he believes in. The Wilkses are not the only billionaires backing Cruz. Reclusive hedge fund magnate Robert Mercer gave $11 million; Texas energy investor Toby Neugebauer gave $10 million. Mercer has declined to comment on why he is supporting Cruz, while Neugebauer backs Cruz for his track record promoting conservative causes and opposing the federal debt. Despite the large donations, Cruz is not among the leaders of the Republican race. A Reuters/Ipsos poll on Sept. 8 showed him in fourth place among Republican voters at 5.5 percent, tied with former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. . PRAYING FOR CRUZ. The day after President Barack Obama won a second term, I was pretty bummed out, Farris Wilks told congregants in a sermon on Nov. 7, 2012, a recording of which was provided by Peter Montgomery, a senior fellow with the equal rights group People for the American Way. I do believe that our country died that Tuesday night, Wilks said. Less than a year later, Farris found himself in the ballroom of the Marriott Hotel in Des Moines, Iowa, where Cruz stood with head bowed in a prayer circle, surrounded by evangelical Christians. Cruz was among the political headliners at a Pastors and Pews conference, an annual, closed-door affair that now occurs in roughly 14 states and is organized by Christian nationalist David Lane. The born-again Lane, a self-described former wild man of drugs, wine, women and song, believes the Bible should be the primary textbook in public schools and that judges who favor same-sex marriage should be impeached. He says people who embrace homosexual marriage, along with pagan public schools, pagan higher learning and pagan media, are creating Americas downfall with their multiracial false gods. One of Lanes major aims is to motivate at least 1,000 pastors to run for office in 2016. Polling shows there are 65 million to 80 million evangelical Christians but only a quarter of them vote. Getting 5 percent more registered and voting would, according to Lane, put a conservative in the White House. Asked about the Wilks brothers' financial support for Cruz, Lane said in an interview:.

  3. Martin Charlton:

    There is no textbook you can go buy. There is no self-help guide. You just sort of fumble your way through it, you're figuring it out every day.
