Christians across the globe hold high moral standards, basing their conduct on the supreme law, which is the Bible. True Christians are known for love; they’re known for carrying out selfless acts and holding marriage as a holy union between one man and one woman. Christians don’t support child molestation and don’t have any Bible verses to justify the crime.
Unfortunately, Satan has infiltrated the church and brought in some teachings that aren’t in line with the scriptures. It’s such evil teachings that some people are using to justify homos*xuality, child molestation, among other devilish acts.
Yes, it’s such filthy and baseless arguments that some people are using to defend Roy Moore after the senate runner was accused of making s*xual advances towards a 14-year-old.
The worst defenses brought forward in favor of the former Alabama Supreme Court justice was by Alabama State Auditor Jim Zeigler, who said, “Take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became the parents of Jesus… There’s just nothing immoral or illegal here. Maybe just a little bit unusual.”
It appears like Zeigler doesn’t know that Christians never use the case of Mary and Joseph to justify child molestation.
With Moore’s campaign premised on his evangelical faith, such people are doing him bad instead of good. It’s his strong evangelical beliefs that even won him the party ticket against a very strong establishment candidate. After clinching the victory in the primaries, he has built his campaign on his evangelical faith and he’s gone as far as making political alliances with Steve Bannon and his ilk.
Another Moore defender who’s also doing him damage is Alabama Marion County GOP chairperson David Hall. Speaking to a reporter he said, “It was 40 years ago, I really don’t see the relevance of it. He was 32. She was supposedly 14. She’s not saying that anything happened other than they kissed… It wouldn’t affect whether or not I’d vote for him.”
Surely, a 32-year-old kissing a 14-year-old is alright for Hall? What kind of a leader is that? Here’s the thing: It’s NOT okay, Hall.
Let those who defend Moore do so in a responsible manner. At the same time they should know that everyone has a right to have their day in court. That’s when we’ll be able to know whether or not Moore is guilty.
