If you haven’t been paying attention, Democrats are absolutely giddy over the latest accusations of child molestation that have been levied against Bible-thumping, Ten Commandments-loving, homosexual-hating Republican Senate candidate for Alabama Roy Moore. In case you have been watching Fox News where the top story is that Hillary Clinton is now selling the USA’s uranium out of the trunk of her car, here is a link to the Washington Post story that broke the news get you up to speed.
Some Democrats think that this will lead to a Senate victory in a couple weeks for Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones in the special Alabama election. To those Democrats, I would say …
“Whoa!” Anyone who thinks that allegations of sexual molestation of a minor in Alabama might hurt Roy Jones’s chances for victory has never visited Alabama. Many family trees in Alabama were planted through exactly that kind of relationship. The shocking thing to me about these four accusers is not that they were teens when Roy Moore approached them, but that at least one of them was not a first cousin or sibling of Moore.
Don’t believe me? Am I being too hard on Alabama? Here’s what Alabama State Auditor Jim Zeigler had to say about the Roy Moore allegations, “Even if you accept the Washington Post’s report as being completely true, it’s much ado about very little.” That seemed like the perfect time to roll out the Bible as Zeigler added, “Also take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus.” Can someone please remind Bible-quoting Jim Zeigler that the New Testament Gospels includes references to a virgin birth of Jesus? I can find no Bible stories of teen Mary being lured to a remote stabbin’ cabin by an adult Joseph.
Unfortunately for America, any press about sexual misconduct with underage girls is good press in Alabama as long as the sexual predator is Republican and purports to love Jesus. While less of Moore may be the best for America, I am afraid that we will get more of Moore. We may get Moore, Moore, Moore. How soon until this song is playing at Roy Moore campaign rallies?
How do I like it? I don’t. Sad, but True.
