It’s been insane week of sexual harassment allegations that included reports that Roy Moore, current GOP Senate candidate from Alabama, had sexual encounters with teenage girls including a 14 year old when he was 32 years old. Despite multiple reports and witnesses coming forward, Moore has not indicated that he is willing to step aside or take any accountability for his past actions. To make matters worse, several of his GOP supporters have stepped up to excuse Mr. Moore and try to downplay the seriousness of the matter. For example, Alabama State Auditor Jim Zeigler a Republican, stated that Moore’s actions were biblically sanctioned since Joseph was an adult and Mary was a teen (never-mind that she supposedly had Jesus through immaculate conception).
Moore is a staunch Christian family values conservative and is notorious for his failed attempt as a state judge in Alabama to deny same sex couples their federally legal right to marry. He has also stated that anyone who is a Muslim should not be allowed to serve in the United States Congress.
