Sandy Rios of the American Family Association is busy defending Roy Moore from allegations that he molested and tried to date several girls between 14 and 18. She says the attacks on Moore are really an attack on all Christians and he’s being falsely accused — just like Jesus, of course.
“This is a larger issue,” Rios continued. “The focus is on Justice Moore, but really he is a proxy for all of us that are believers in Jesus. Now I’m saying in terms of the hatred and vitriol coming his way and the delight, really, in destroying him if they can. It’s what the darkness always does to the light.”
Rios then pivoted to scripture to defend Moore.
“Remember that Jesus himself was accused, but he was completely innocent,” Rios said. “Remember that they paid guards to come and lie about whether the stone was rolled away and the body was not there. This is not new.”
So when Jesus said “suffer the little children to come unto me,” what he really meant was send the children to Roy Moore so they could suffer? Interesting. So if I’m getting this right, no right-wing Christian has ever done anything wrong and any allegation ever made against a right-wing Christian simply must be fake and part of a conspiracy against all Christians. That’s damn clever of us all, don’t you think? And we would have gotten away with it if not were those meddling wingnuts.
