It should come as no surprise that those who’ve tried to defend Roy Moore have come up with some pretty ridiculous excuses for his behavior. That’s what happens when you try to defend the indefensible.
Such as when Alabama lawmaker Rep. Ed Henry (R) said, if the allegations are true, Moore’s accusers “should be prosecuted” for not speaking out sooner.
“If they believe this man is predatory, they are guilty of allowing him to exist for 40 years. I think someone should prosecute and go after them. You can’t be a victim 40 years later, in my opinion,” Henry said.
Those outrageous remarks followed Alabama state auditor Jim Ziegler, who tried defending Moore by saying Jesus’ mother Mary was a teenager when she married Joseph.
You really can’t make this garbage up.
Now we have a pro-Moore pastor taking his turn to prove that most evangelical “Christians” are frauds by declaring that the disgraced GOP Senate candidate was forced to prey on underage girls because most of the women his age were already married.
“Judge Roy Moore graduated from West Point and then went on into the service, served in Vietnam and then came back and was in law school,” Flip Benham said. “All of the ladies, or many of the ladies that he possibly could have married, were not available then, they were already married, maybe, somewhere.”
Benham also went on to say — and no, this is not a sick joke — that Moore was drawn to younger women because there’s “something about the purity of a young woman, there is something that is good, that’s true, that’s straight”
So, according to this pastor, not only was Moore forced to prey on underage girls, but their “purity” is what really drew him in.
Is this fool a pastor or is he someone trying to help registered sex offenders write a handbook?
Not only did Donald Trump shamefully endorse Moore’s campaign on Tuesday, but we’re seeing his supporters, many of whom are so-called “Christian leaders,” essentially defending child molestation using rhetoric that sounds like something a registered sex offender might use.
I really don’t even know what to say to all of this anymore. I always knew Republicans were frauds when it came to their moral high-horse and fake “Christian” propaganda, but defending a child predator is something I thought — or at least hoped — would be a step too far.
Unfortunately, I was wrong.
