While the Congressional GOP will not be fundraising for Alabama’s U.S. Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore, evangelical leader Jerry Falwell, Jr. is sticking by the darling of the Far Right, who is accused of molesting a 14-year girl when he was a 32-year Assistant District Attorney.
Falwell, Jr., president of the Christian Liberty University, has so much (ahem) faith in this pervy old man, he and other Christian leaders are ignoring the emotionally gut-wrenching admission of Moore’s teen accuser to say, “I believe the judge is telling the truth.”
“It comes down to a question who is more credible in the eyes of the voters — the candidate or the accuser,” Falwell told the Religious News Service in an email published Friday.
Like Donald Trump, who has been accused of sexual assault by several women with court cases pending, Moore denies the disturbing accusation of groping the teen girl. Also like the orange-faced perv who sits in the Oval Office, Moore’s Christian supporters are calling it a political attack by Democrats and — of course — “fake news.”
“The same thing happened to President Trump a few weeks before his election last year except it was several women making allegations,” Falwell wrote. “He denied that any of them were true and the American people believed him and elected him the 45th president of the United States.”
If you can believe it, another one of Moore’s Christian supporters in Alabama even used the biblical story of Mary and Joseph to rationalize Moore’s sexual attraction to a minor.
Um, no. The Bible says Mary had a virgin birth. No sex involved. But nice try.
Alabama voters have ignored a lot of things Moore has said over the years — including that God’s law is more important than U.S. law, and that all homosexuals should be arrested.
Moore, who believes our Founding Fathers intended America to be a Christian nation, disobeyed a federal judge’s order to take down a 5,280-pound granite statue of the Ten Commandments he had installed in the lobby of the state judicial building. He was kicked off the court in 2003.
In 2016, after being elected again, he was suspended for telling probate judges not to issue same-sex marriage licenses.
In a series of tweets, he also posted this:
The Obama-Clinton Machine’s liberal media lapdogs just launched the most vicious and nasty round of attacks against me I’ve EVER faced!
We are are in the midst of a spiritual battle with those who want to silence our message. (1/4) #ALSen

While prominent Christians continue to support Roy Moore, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, several GOP Congressmen and women, and spokespersons for President Trump and Vice President Pence all have said, if the allegations are true, Moore would be disqualified from serving in office and should step aside in the race.
If entertainers who come under the same depraved allegations are forced to lose their jobs, so should Roy Moore. Our U.S. government stands for the people, not this type of predatory behavior. And “the people” includes women; trust them. No “ifs, ands or buts” about it.
Step aside, Roy. You’re unfit for office.
