Blaming the “liberal media,” disgraced child molester and former U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore says he’s “struggling to make ends meet.”

Facing a lawsuit from one of the women who accused him of sexually assaulting her, a desperate Roy Moore begs Christians to donate to his defense fund so he can continue his fight against “gays, lesbians, and transgenders” who have joined forces with “those who believe in abortion, sodomy, and destruction of all that we hold dear.”

Using his Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate Facebook page, the sexual predator and conservative Christian hero is making a desperate plea for money to pay his lawyers defending him against a lawsuit from Leigh Corfman, one of the women who accused him of sexually assaulting her when she was only a teen and Moore was a District Attorney in Alabama.

In his desperate plea Moore writes:

The liberal media, in association with some who want to destroy our Country do not want my influence in the 2018 elections and are doing everything they can to stop me.

Gays, lesbians, and transgenders have joined forces with those who believe in abortion, sodomy, and destruction of all that we hold dear. Unless we stand together we will lose our Country.

Christians can no longer afford to remain silent in these “perilous” times. For we know that in such time men shall be come lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God.

We must fight, an appeal to the God of Heaven is all that is left us! Please help me fight this battle for the heart and soul of this Nation. Your financial contribution to my legal defense fund is crucial. After over 40 years of public service I cannot back down now.

When I stood to bring these values and truths to Washington D. C. I was forced to fight the Washington establishment, the Republican Party, the Democrat Party, the ultra-liberal media and people such as George Soros, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and many others who fear the truth.

I’m sure that you cannot imagine how this has taken a toll on my wife, my children, and even my friends. My resources have been depleted and I have struggled to make ends meet, but I have not lost my faith in our God, who is our true source of strength and will never leave or forsake us.

Poor Roy, he thought he was going to be a U.S. Senator, and now he is reduced to begging for funds from his few remaining supporters to defend against a lawsuit he is bound to lose.

One might  almost feel sorry for the guy, except for the fact that he is a sexual predator, a dangerous religious extremist, and a moral monster not qualified to hold any public office.

Bottom line: Roy Moore, disgraced U.S. Senate candidate and deplorable human being, says he is “struggling to make ends meet.”

And so it goes.

Hail Mary: Claiming “it’s not over” Republican Roy Moore refuses to concede the Alabama senate race to Democrat Doug Jones because he’s waiting “on God.” 

After a stunning loss in the Alabama senate race Roy Moore is refusing to concede. Moore, who faced credible accusations of sexual misconduct and child molestation during the campaign, addressed his supporters on Tuesday night after The Associated Press called the race for his Democratic opponent, Doug Jones. The following is a transcript of those remarks:

Thank you. Thank you.

[Crowd chanting “U.S.A.” ]

Thank you. You know, I really want to thank you for coming tonight and realize when the vote is this close that it’s not over. And we still got to go by the rules about this recount provision and the secretary of state has explained it to us and we’re expecting that the press will go up there and talk to them to find out what the situation is.

But we also know that God is always in control. You know, part of the thing — part of the problem with this campaign is we’ve been painted in an unfavorable and unfaithful light. We’ve been put in a hole, if you will. And it reminds me of a passage in Psalms 40. I waited patiently for the Lord. That’s what we’ve got to do. And he inclined it to me, heard my cry, brought us out of a horrible pit out of clay and set my feet on the rock and established my goings and put a new song in our mouth. A hymn praising to our God. Many shall see it and hear it and shall be moved by that, if you will.

That’s what we’ve got to do is wait on God and let this process play out. I know it’s late. We can’t wait and have everybody wait until after 11:00. But the votes are still coming in and we’re looking at that. May God bless you as you go on, give you safe journey and thank you for coming tonight.

It’s not over and it’s going to take some time. Thank you.

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill rejected the notion of a recount, telling CNN “The people of Alabama have spoken.”

Reacting to the accused child molester’s refusal to concede, Former Arkansas Governor and fellow Christian extremist Mike Huckabee offered Moore some advice via Twitter:

“God wasn’t registered to vote in AL but the ppl who voted did speak and it wasn’t close enough for recount. In elections everyone does NOT get a trophy. I know first hand but it’s best to exit with class.”

Bottom line: Moore is wrong. He lost. It is over. And his imaginary God can do nothing about it.

Roy Moore’s spokesman Ted Crockett is dumbfounded when he finds out that lawmakers don’t have to swear on a Christian Bible.

Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore’s spokesman Ted Crockett made an appearance on CNN earlier today. It did not go well.

Speaking with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Crockett first admitted that  Moore “probably” still believes that homosexual conduct should be illegal. When asked, Crockett told host Jake Tapper:

It’s just a sin, OK? That’s what it is. It’s what my Bible tells me — the Old Testament and the New Testament. That’s what this is about.

Crockett added:

You people want to take the whole 2,000 or 3,000 years of our history and you all just want to throw it out the window, as if you’re just going to make your own rules, your own man-made rules, and do whatever you want.

As if demanding criminal penalties for being gay wasn’t enough, the interview only  got worse.

Tapper then asked Crockett why Moore claims a that a Muslim should not be allowed to serve in Congress. Crockett tried to explain, saying:

Because you have to swear on the Bible. I had to do it. I’m an elected official three terms. I had to swear on a Bible. You have to swear on a Bible to be an elected official in the United States of America. He alleges that a Muslim cannot do that ethically swearing on the Bible.

A bemused Tapper gently reminded Crockett that this is America, and that you don’t have to swear on a Christian Bible to serve as an elected official. Tapper told Crockett:

You don’t actually have to swear on a Christian Bible, you can swear on anything, really. I don’t know if you knew that. You can swear on a Jewish Bible.

Tapper continued:

The law is not that you have to swear on a Christian Bible. That is not the law.

What followed was a very long, painful silence.

A stunned Crockett sat in silence for several seconds before Tapper asked:

Did you know that?

Apparently he did not.

And so it goes.

Alabama Senate candidate, accused child molester, and Christian extremist Roy Moore claims America hasn’t been great since slavery.

The LA Times reports on a September campaign event in which Moore claimed that America was “wicked,” and declared that America was great when slavery was legal:

At Moore’s Florence rally, the former judge outlined all the wrongs he sees in Washington and “spiritual wickedness in high places.” He warned of “the awful calamity of abortion and sodomy and perverse behavior and murders and shootings and road rage” as “a punishment inflicted upon us for our presumptuous sins.”

In response to a question from one of the only African Americans in the audience, who asked when Moore thought America was last “great,” Moore  replied:

“I think it was great at the time when families were united — even though we had slavery — they cared for one another…. Our families were strong, our country had a direction.”

The LA Times continues:

At the same event, Moore referred to Native Americans and Asian Americans as “reds and yellows,” and earlier this year he suggested the September 11 terrorist attacks were divine punishment.

Confirming the fact that Moore is a deplorable human being, and distinctly unqualified to serve as an elected official in any capacity, Talking Points Memo reports that late last year the candidate declared that the Supreme Court’s decision legalizing gay marriage was “even worse” than the notorious 1857 Dred Scott ruling that upheld slavery.

In a podcast interview last November Moore said:

In 1857 the United States Supreme Court did rule that black people were property. Of course that contradicted the Constitution, and it took a civil war to overturn it. But this ruling in Obergefell is even worse in a sense because it forces not only people to recognize marriage other than the institution ordained of God and recognized by nearly every state in the union, it says that you now must do away with the definition of marriage and make it between two persons of the same gender or leading on, as one of the dissenting justices said, to polygamy, to multi-partner marriages.

We’ve got to go back and recognize that what they did in Obergefell was not only to take and create a right that does not exist under the Constitution but then to mandate that that right compels Christians to give up their religious freedom and liberty.

That’s right, Moore believes the Supreme Court decision allowing gay marriage is worse than the decision upholding slavery.  

The fact is, Moore is a dangerous religious extremist who places his Christian faith above the U.S. Constitution, and believes that “God is the only source of our law, liberty and government.”

In fact, Moore was removed not once, but twice, from his position as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court for his refusal to obey the law because it conflicted with his extreme Christianity. Once because he refused to obey a federal order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the state supreme court, and another time for refusing to obey the Supreme Court decision affirming marriage equality.

Indeed, the GOP senate candidate believes that God punishes the U.S. for immoral behavior, and “God’s law” can invalidate federal court decisions.

Earlier this year Moore declared:

God is the only source of our law, liberty and government.

Bottom line: Roy Moore is a dangerous religious extremist and a moral monster not qualified to hold any public office.

Watch: In a blast from the past Roy Moore argues that teaching kids evolution in schools leads to gang violence and gun crime.

Roy Moore, the Alabama child molester currently running for the U.S. Senate is a dangerous, ridiculous Christian extremist that has no business serving in any capacity as an elected official.

It is no secret that, guided by religious extremism, Moore rejects science in favor of religious superstition, and rejects the indisputable fact that biological evolution is true. In fact, recently Moore explained his rejection of science to the Washington Post, claiming:

There’s no such thing as evolution… That we came from a snake? No I don’t believe that.

In this blast from the past, Moore addresses the National Clergy Council in 1997, claiming that drive-by shooting is caused by teaching evolution in public schools. At one point in the clip Moore declares:

They’re acting like animals because we’ve taught them they come from animals.

That’s right, Moore blames teaching students evolution for crime because if we teach kids “they come from animals” they’ll act like animals.

(For the record, human beings are animals, and that is nothing to be ashamed of.)

Confirming the fact that Moore is an ignorant, deplorable human being, and distinctly unqualified to serve as an elected official in any capacity, Talking Points Memo reports that late last year the candidate declared that the Supreme Court’s decision legalizing gay marriage was “even worse” than the notorious 1857 Dred Scott ruling that upheld slavery.

The fact is, Moore is a conservative Christian’s wet dream, a dangerous religious extremist who places his Christian faith above the U.S. Constitution, and believes that “God is the only source of our law, liberty and government.”

In fact, Moore was removed not once, but twice, from his position as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court for his refusal to obey the law because it conflicted with his extreme Christianity. Once because he refused to obey a federal order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the state supreme court, and another time for refusing to obey the Supreme Court decision affirming marriage equality.

Indeed, the GOP senate candidate believes that God punishes the U.S. for immoral behavior, and “God’s law” can invalidate federal court decisions.

Earlier this year Moore declared:

God is the only source of our law, liberty and government.

In addition, recently Moore told Vox that the U.S. Constitution was written to “foster religion and foster Christianity.”

Moore, like Trump, is a white nationalist and a birther who repeatedly questioned Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president.

Bottom line: Roy Moore is not only a child molester, he is also a dangerous Christian extremist who argues that gay marriage is worse than slavery, and that teaching evolution to kids causes gun violence.

He is also on his way to being the next U.S. Senator from the sad state of Alabama.

Weep for Alabama.

Weep for the nation.

Conservative Christians who falsely claimed gay marriage would lead to pedophilia now support child molester Roy Moore.

The evidence that Roy Moore was molesting children while working as an assistant District Attorney in Alabama is overwhelming, and many of Moore’s conservative Christian defenders do not even bother to deny the charges.

Some conservative Christians excuse the transgression, arguing that there was nothing wrong with a 30-year-old Moore sexually pursuing teenage girls as young as 14. Other conservative Christians admit that being a child molester is wrong, but argue that supporting an honorable Democrat like Doug Jones would be worse than supporting a disgraceful child molester like Roy Moore, simply because Moore is a Republican.

This gross moral hypocrisy leaves many people scratching their heads, wondering what is wrong with conservative Christians. For example, a popular front page post on Reddit opines:

Christian conservatives repeatedly told me “uhh, if we let a man marry a man, next thing we know we’ll have to ‘tolerate’ pedophiles.” Well, I’ll be damned. Here we are merely 2 1/2 years after legal gay marriage and the GOP and evangelicals are falling all over themselves to support a pedophile.

Who knew the very folks warning us about pedophiles would turn right around and vote for a pedophile when one turned up in their own political party?

James Dobson, conservative Christian thought leader and founder of Focus on the Family, has no problem supporting Roy Moore in the upcoming Alabama senate race, despite the fact that Moore is a known child molester who preyed on young teenage girls while serving as an assistant District Attorney.

Another example, Christian Pastor Flip Benham justifies Roy Moore’s pursuit of a 14-year-old girl by claiming “there is something about the purity of a young woman.”

Benham, a vicious, anti-gay conservative Christian, and one of Moore’s most vocal defenders, tried to defend the indefensible by suggesting that it was acceptable for Roy Moore to pursue young teen girls when he was a much older man.

In his bizarre defense of a child molester, Benham said Moore’s sexual assault and harassment of young teen girls was justified because all the older “ladies” were taken after the war in Viet Nam, and Moore always sought out the permission of the parents of the young teen girls he was trying to date.

Alabama Governor Kay Ivey is no better. Ivey has stated that she believes that Roy Moore is a child molester, but will vote for him anyway.

Speaking at a Thanksgiving turkey pardon event, Gov. Ivey placed party over morality, saying she would support Moore despite the fact that the man is an unrepentant child molester. Ivey said:

I believe in the Republican Party, what we stand for, and most important, we need to have a Republican in the United States Senate to vote on things like the Supreme Court justices, other appointments the Senate has to confirm and make major decisions. So that’s what I plan to do, vote for Republican nominee Roy Moore.

Note: Gov. Ivey acknowledged that Moore is an unrepentant child molester. When asked, the governor said she believed the multiple victims who report Moore sexually abused and harassed them as teenagers. Asked if she believed Moore’s accusers, Ivey said:

I certainly have no reason to disbelieve any of them. The timing is a little curious. But at the same time, I have no reason to disbelieve them.

Ivey said the fact Moore is a child molester “bothers” her, but will not prevent her from voting for Moore in the senate election

Adding insult to injury, Alabama State Auditor Jim Ziegler claimed the Bible justified Moore’s deplorable behavior.

Commenting on the explosive scandal, Ziegler told the Washington Examiner:

There is nothing to see here. The allegations are that a man in his early 30s dated teenage girls. Even the Washington Post report says that he never had sexual intercourse with any of the girls and never attempted sexual intercourse.

After asserting that “there is nothing to see here,” Ziegler went on to use scripture from the Bible to defend Moore’s criminal behavior. Ziegler said:

He’s clean as a hound’s tooth. Take the Bible. Zachariah and Elizabeth for instance. Zachariah was extremely old to marry Elizabeth and they became the parents of John the Baptist.

Ziegler then went on to invoke Christ to defend Moore:

Also take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus.

Ziegler concluded:

There’s just nothing immoral or illegal here. Maybe just a little bit unusual.

That’s right. Let that sink in for a minute. According to Ziegler, in Alabama, sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl is “nothing immoral or illegal,” but “maybe just a little bit unusual.”

Note: Like others, Ziegler is not denying the charges against Moore. Instead, Ziegler is assuming the charges against Moore are true, and arguing that even though the charges are true, “there is nothing to see here,” because Jesus.

Bottom line: The same conservative Christians who claimed gay marriage would lead to pedophilia now want people to vote for a child molester.

Late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel mocks child molester Roy Moore’s so-called “Christian values” in a hilarious but brutal take-down.

CNN reports:

The host of ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” got into a Twitter spat with the Alabama Republican over a stunt that Kimmel’s show had orchestrated on Wednesday at a Moore event. Kimmel had even more to say about the Twitter feud on his show Thursday night.

The Twitter feud went like this:

jrmkim

On his show Thursday night Kimmel continued the Twitter feud and responded to Moore’s invitation during his opening monologue, offering to meet the alleged child molester and Republican candidate at the mall:

I think you’re actually going to like this, Roy. I’m going to come to Gadsden, Ala., with a team of high school cheerleaders, okay? We’ll meet you at the mall. Don’t worry, I can get you in. And then when the girls and I show up, if you can control yourself and behave, if you can somehow manage to keep little Roy in your little cowboy pants when those nubile cheerleaders come bounding in, you and I, we’ll sit down at the food court, we’ll have a little Panda Express and we’ll talk about Christian values.

If you’re open to it, when we sit down, I’ll share with you what I learned at my church. At my church, forcing yourself on underage girls is a no-no. Some even consider it to be a sin. Not that you did that, of course. Allegedly. But when you commit a sin at our church, we’re encouraged to confess and ask forgiveness for the sin. Not to call the women you allegedly victimized liars and damage them even more. But maybe your church is different. Let’s figure it out together.

Kimmel continued:

It doesn’t fit your stereotype, but I happen to be a Christian too. I made my first holy communion, I was confirmed, I pray, I support my church, one of my closest friends is a priest, I baptized my children. Christian is actually my middle name. I know that’s shocking, but it’s true. So if you’re open to, when we sit down, I will share with you what I learned at my church. At my church, forcing yourself on underage girls is a no-no. Some even consider it to be a sin.

Kimmel added:

Or maybe when you say, ‘Come down to Alabama and we’ll do it man to man,’ maybe that means you’re challenging me to a fight, which is kind of what it sounds like. And if you are, I accept, by the way. I accept that invitation. There is no one I would love to fight more than you. I will put my Christian values aside, just for you and for that fight.

So if you are challenging me to a fight, here’s what we’ll do. Let’s find a place to do it. I’ll wear a Girl Scout uniform so you can have something to get excited about. And the winner, whoever wins the fight, will give all the money we charge for the tickets to charity. My charity will be the women who came forward to say you molested them, okay? Alright, tough guy, with your little pistol?

Bottom line: Roy Moore went to war with Jimmy Kimmel, and lost.

Family values: Christian leader and Focus On The Family founder James Dobson supports child molester Roy Moore in new radio ad.

James Dobson, conservative Christian thought leader and founder of Focus on the Family, has no problem supporting Roy Moore in the upcoming Alabama senate race, despite the fact that Moore is a known child molester who preyed on young teenage girls while serving as an assistant District Attorney.

In the radio ad being played all over Alabama the conservative Christian thought leader says:

Hello everyone, I’m Dr. James Dobson. You know, last November I believe God gave America another chance with the election of Donald J. Trump. But he now needs the presence and leadership of Judge Roy Moore to make America great again. And that’s why I’m asking my friends in Alabama to elect Judge Roy Moore to the United States Senate. Judge Moore is a man of proven character and integrity, and he has served Alabama and this country very, very well. I’ve known him for over 15 years, but recently I’ve been dismayed and troubled about the way he and his wife Kayla have been personally attacked by the Washington establishment. Judge Moore has stood for our religious liberty and for the sanctity of marriage, when it seemed like the entire world was against him. I hope you’ll vote for Judge Roy Moore for United States Senate.

In the radio ad Dobson does not acknowledge that Moore is a child molester. Instead, Dobson only alludes to Moore’s crimes against children, noting that he has “been dismayed and troubled about the way he and his wife Kayla have been personally attacked by the Washington establishment.”

In fact, Dobson turns reality upside down by praising the child molester, declaring:

Judge Moore is a man of proven character and integrity…

Writing at Slacktivist, Fred Clarke laments Dobson’s twisted endorsement of Moore:

Dobson’s hearty, unqualified endorsement of a viciously homophobic, birther-racist, theocratic, twice-impeached former judge and alleged child-molester is not surprising or newsworthy for suggesting anything new about James Dobson. We already knew that Dobson was a fan of homophobia and theocracy, and that he didn’t have any qualms about forming close alliances with white nationalists. And even Dobson’s carefree dismissal of all of the witness testimony alleging that Roy Moore is a long-time, serial molester of young girls doesn’t tell us anything new about Dobson. The essential untrustworthiness of women has always been the foundation of Dobson’s politics and of his religion, so of course he doesn’t believe any of the women accusing Moore.

Clarke is correct when he identifies Moore as “a viciously homophobic, birther-racist, theocratic, twice-impeached former judge and alleged child-molester;” and the observation that Dobson is “a fan of homophobia and theocracy” is also spot on.

Indeed, Dobson is a deplorable human being with a record of homophobia and hatred in the service of Christ and supposed “family values.” Last year, in an anti-Obama rant the Focus on the Family founder said that transgender people using public restrooms should be shot. Writing for World Net Daily Dobson complained about President Obama’s order to “every public school in America to open all its bathroom facilities including those that are in use by a member of the opposite sex.” Dobson wrote:

Would you remain passive after knowing that a strange-looking man, dressed like a woman, has been peering over toilet cubicles to watch your wife in a private moment? What should be done to the pervert who was using mirrors to watch women and girls in their stalls? If you are a dad, I pray you will protect your little girls from men who walk in unannounced, unzip their pants and urinate in front of them. If this had happened 100 years ago, someone might have been shot. Where is today’s manhood? God help us!

In short, Dobson gives Christians permission to shoot transgender people using a public bathroom, supposedly because such a crime would protect “little girls from men.” Yet by endorsing Moore, Dobson is sending a clear message that young girls don’t matter, and that “good, Christian men” like Roy Moore should be free to sexually harass and assault teenage girls without fear of consequence.

Bottom line: Dobson, supposed champion of “family values,” is a Christian hypocrite who supports Roy Moore, a child molester, for U.S. Senate.

Retired Alabama cop reports she was assigned to watch Moore to prevent him from sexually harassing high school cheerleaders.

A retired Alabama police officer from the county where Senate candidate Roy Moore worked as an assistant district attorney says she was assigned to watch Moore at high school sporting events to prevent him from sexually harassing the young cheerleaders.

Speaking about the senate candidate, Faye Gray, a former Alabama cop, told MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell that everybody knew that Roy Moore liked the young girls and would sexually harass them if given the chance.

Discussing her task to prevent Moore from sexually harassing high school cheerleaders Gray said:

It was a known fact: Roy Moore liked young girls…

We were also told to watch him at the ball games and make sure that he didn’t hang around the cheerleaders.

Gray added:

The rumor was that Roy Moore likes young girls. It was not only in our department but at the courthouse, too.

Gray also confirmed reports that Moore had been banned from the Gadsden Mall because he would often sexually harass young female employees.

Earlier this week Christian Pastor Flip Benham justified Moore’s pursuit of a 14-year-old girl by claiming “there is something about the purity of a young woman.”

Benham, Moore’s close friend and long-time supporter, said Moore’s sexual assault and harassment of young teen girls was justified because all the older “ladies” were taken after the war in Viet Nam, and Moore always sought out the permission of the parents of the young teen girls he was trying to date.

Defending the child molester, Benham declared:

He did that because there is something about a purity of a young woman, there is something that is good, that’s true, that’s straight and he looked for that.

Note, Benham is not denying that Moore sexually pursued underage girls. Instead, Benham is trying to justify and defend the reprehensible behavior.

Bottom line: A retired Alabama cop says that in the 1980’s she was assigned to watch Roy Moore at high school sporting events to make sure that Moore did not try to sexually harass the cheerleaders.

Christian Pastor Flip Benham justifies Roy Moore’s pursuit of a 14-year-old girl by claiming “there is something about the purity of a young woman.”

Benham, a vicious, anti-gay conservative Christian, and one of Moore’s most vocal defenders, tried to defend the indefensible by suggesting that it was acceptable for Roy Moore to pursue young teen girls when he was a much older man.

In his bizarre defense of a child molester, Benham said Moore’s sexual assault and harassment of young teen girls was justified because all the older “ladies” were taken after the war in Viet Nam, and Moore always sought out the permission of the parents of the young teen girls he was trying to date:

I think that, number one, you need to understand, 40 years ago, what the Sitz im Leben was like in Alabama. 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. 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.

So he looked in a different direction and always with the [permission of the] parents of younger ladies … He did that because there is something about a purity of a young woman, there is something that is good, that’s true, that’s straight and he looked for that.

In short, Benham is not denying that Moore was trying to date young teen girls. Instead, he is trying to justify the behavior of a child molester, by claiming that the child molester happens to be a godly man in search of the “purity” that only a teenage girl can possess.

Blech!

In the interview, posted below via Right Wing Watch, Benham clearly states his opinion that it is perfectly acceptable for a 14-year-old girl to date a grown man as long as the parents approve. When pressed, Benham finally agrees that a grown man dating a ten-year-old girl would be unacceptable.

For the record, “Philip “Flip” Benham is an Evangelical Christian minister and the national leader of Concord, North Carolina-based Operation Save America, a pro-life group that evolved from another pro-life organization, Operation Rescue.” He is also a long time friend and supporter of Roy Moore.

Bottom line: Another leading conservative Christian is willing to justify crimes against children in order to promote their political candidate.
