Because there's still some stigginit left to stigg.

There's no shortage of mental gymnastics and hypocrisy among Republicans. Look at how cozy evangelicals have gotten with the p*ssy grabber in chief.

They'll call this fake news but spend hours dissecting the unraveling carnage of the Weinstein scandal. Quite honestly the same types of people who would vote for Roy Moore probably do awful things to women anyway.

In the wake of the "Access Hollywood" tape, PRRI released data showing that, for evangelical voters, moral rectitude had faded in importance since 2011. More than any other religious group, evangelicals said that someone who acts immorally in their personal lives can still serve morally in office.

Yep. They sold their soul to get a disgusting blob that embodies the 7 Deadly Sins. They knew he wouldn't change. He's never had to, so why would he now?

Fark them and their hypocritical bullshiat. They farked their deity and the country all at once.

fusillade762: Obama-Clinton Machine

Totally. Just like Obama and Clinton are behind outing liberals like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Charlie Sheen, Louis CK, James Toback, and Mark Halperin. It's totally a deep state political conspiracy.

Mary was a teen, Joseph was an adult. Roy is just like Jesus' parents, he's extra holy now.

I wonder. In some sense, I could see this blowing over except ..., some of the defenses of him that I've seen. Wow.

Maybe, at least in a fantasy world I'm entertaining at the moment, it will be a bit like "it's not the crime, it's the cover-up". This in the sense that some of the people trying to defend Moore are saying some incredibly horrific things. People deciding that attacks late in a campaign from events decades before don't matter is fairly typical in politics. But people defending his actual actions works differently. I can see that being the difference for a fair number of people who are otherwise pretty jaded about people digging up old dirt. Actually defending creeps who pursue young teens is different. That's now. And maybe, just maybe, that will be enough to tip the scales for some.

They need to be reminded of this.  CONSTANTLY.  Non-stop.  All beginning and all ending conversations involving politics should begin and end with this.

Are you liberals really believing that Roy Moore really committed those acts based upon accusations alone without even a trial, or are you just presenting this story in an attempt to draw attention away from Louis CK's obvious guilt?
 
2017-11-09 10:45:42 PM  
Yes. I mean, you can't spell evangelical without evil.

Mary was a pregnant virgin when Joseph married her.

Rapey Roy is more like the Holy Ghost, running around trying to impregnate virgins.

If they do, it'll lend a lot more support to the theory that evangelicals have a much higher rate of sexual assault (particularly against minors) than any other demographic in the US.
 
2017-11-09 10:48:18 PM  
It will prove that they are disgusting wastes of humanity while farking up the country, so, yes, the Evangelicals will do it.

If they condemned him, you would still call them the scum of the earth anyway
 
2017-11-09 10:51:53 PM  
I strongly suspect that most of his [male] followers don't see a problem with his pursuit of teenage girls under the age of consent.  That they'd do it too, if they thought they had a chance.  And that they are sympathetic that he didn't actually get into their panties.

Something like 75% of evangelical ministers cheat on their wives.
 
2017-11-09 10:52:34 PM  
Big E Evangelicals are the scum of the Earth, so, of course.  They would even blame the kid somehow and jerk off to thoughts of the assault because the dirty child whore deserved it.  Because they're farking Evangelicals.

Here's the central part of American Evangelicalism: all you have to do is believe in the bible. Belief is it.

Deeds are not necessary, like those wishy washy Catholics and their silly corporal and spiritual works of mercy! Ha! Clothe the naked and feed the hungry? fark THAT shiat MAN! I AM A BELIEVER! DONE!

And here, all they have to do is believe in Jesus once again, and sit back and just let the shiat show happen. Attempted child rape? That's just #MAGA if it's done by a white Christian who hates the gays and trans!
 
2017-11-09 11:01:01 PM  
Duh, Roy Moore is a GAWD fearing man and is forgiven of his sins, no matter the severity. The demmycrats are baby killers.
/we should not be surprised by evangelical hypocrisy by now
 
2017-11-09 11:03:23 PM  
It'll only enhance their support, because he's a victim who's totally being targeted by the libruls and librual mainstreamed media because we all hate God and like such as.

WHERE'S THE CRIME ?
THESE ALLEGED MOORE SEXUAL MISCONDUCT INCIDENTS OF 38 YEARS AGO WERE WITH FEMALES BEYOND THE AGE OF CONSENT. THEY SHOW NO IMPOSITION OF PHYSICAL FORCE OR WILL WHICH WOULD MAKE IT A CRIMINAL ACT.
In the 19th century marriages between teen aged women and older men were common so the age of consent was in the teens. Presently the age of consent for women in Alabama is 16. In 1979 according to Gateway Pundit it was 12. In Mexico it's 14.

I'm about the age these women are.  I wasn't sexually precocious at 14/15, but I had classmates who were and who had boyfriends in their 20s.  They openly dated these men - and no one thought to call the police.  The word "pedophile" wasn't a part of our vocabulary, at least I don't recall that it was.  I was reading the story, and one of the woman said her mother told her that she'd be "lucky" if Moore was showing an interest in her (or words to that effect).  Back in the late 70s, Moore and his friends probably didn't think there was anything wrong with his behavior.

There has been a huge sea change in the way we see these things in our culture, and that's one thing that's changed for the better.

Why don't they condemn him first and then let's see what happens?

Moore wasn't in his 20s at the time he was in his 30s.

These people are just doing what Jesus told them to.

Doesn't everybody remember the Parable of the Childfarker and how he became a powerful law man?

The problem is these people see themselves as holy warriors and every plight against them and theirs as attacks from the devil. This is a direct result of closing down sanitariums in united states. The mentally unstable are free and lo and behold the mentally unstable flock to religion and the more extreme the better.

Why do you think the right wing is in bed with the people they are in bed with. Trump was not kidding about killing someone and getting away with it. These people would forgive any sin, because their god told them who to vote for, and their god can never be wrong. If their god proves wrong their entire would crashes down around them and they have to then put a lifetime of regret and failure on themselves instead of god.

I know I had to do that when I was in my early twenties and left the super conservative christian circles. A friend of mine's house had a sign up that kids were to be silent and women in dresses, this was cult level religion. The introspection I had afterward of all the shiat things I had done that god had forgiven or been blamed for was a huge weight on my soul. To this day I think it is the reason I push myself to give more.

Sorry for the length of the post, just thought a little perspective on why stopping a blind faith is hard and why most people will keep themselves mired in corruptions even when they know it is going on, simply because overcoming the facade and facing their own ignorance is too painful for them to bear.

This pervert went to the mall and hit on Santa's Helpers.  He insisted for for years until she gave in.  While he was working in the prosecutor's office.

There is no statute of limitations that States.  Victims are willing to make statements and witnesses want to testify.

You better hope the State picks up the case or worse no one will come to your daughter's aide when one of these monsters rapes her.

Seriously.  WTF GOP.

Yeah, the defenses from the GOP tell me several things. That the defense ALREADY isn't outright denial tells me
A) They know it's true.
B) They know there's waaayyy more damning info out there that hasn't come to light yet.
C) They've known for a while.

Listen up DEMs, I'm about to give you the secret to winning this election.

Beginning in December start a major ad campaign... This isn't about politics or games. We cannot have a pedophile as senator. We must do a write in vote for Luther Strange (the Trump backed candidate who narrowly lost to Moore). Screw Democrats and Pedophiles... VOTE STRANGE

Oh hey, look, it's the guy who ragged on Democrats and said they don't "really care about sexual assault" b/c Harvey Weinstein exists.

Thank you for further proving the point/suspicion I had about you: You and your ilk accuse others of shiat like virtue signaling b/c you cannot fathom people actually caring about something. The only reason you care about Harvey Weinstein is b/c he's a democrat-had he been a republican, you'd be defending him, as you're defending these shiatstains.

Enjoy your 30 pieces of silver, and keep worshiping the man who sits upon a golden throne and speaks blasphemies from his mouth. I'm sure nothing bad shall come of it, eh?
