Sounds like Alabama senator material right there.

I'd ask what is wrong with the people who think he should represent them. But... Alabama.

Moore is a trogolydite who will hopefully go down to defeat in November.  But, for the love of accuracy, Moore did not support capital punishment for gays, here's what he said when asked if he supported putting gays to death: "Well I don't, you know, I'm not here to outline any punishments for sodomy. That's far beyond any issues I've come in contact with. I can't help what some people say, what some people do."

It seems like the Pink News was stretching the truth with the headline.

Right. Like when your buddy advocates for lynching negroes, people might be interested whether you hold those same views. If your answer to their questions is, "Geez, I don't know. Bob's kind of passionate about things," don't be surprised when people have a problem.

This is very similar to the Nazi bullshiat that has been going on. When someone asks you what you think of Nazis, the answer should be pretty farking quick and decisive.

Any answer to that question other than "what is done between consenting adults in the privacy of their own homes is none of the State's business" is a consideration of the possibility that gays should be executed.  The headline is correct.

The only correct answer to that question is "no". It's so clear cut, that a meandering and waffly response is equivalent to a "yes" response.

here is the CNN article. 
http://www.cnn.com/2017/09/11/politics/kfile-roy-moore-kevin-swanson/​i​ndex.html

Here is the quote:
"Some people that interpret the Bible strictly say that (homosexuality) should be punished with death," the interviewer, who is off camera, said to Moore, "Do you agree with that?"

"Well I don't, you know, I'm not here to outline any punishments for sodomy. That's far beyond any issues I've come in contact with," Moore responded. "I can't help what some people say, what some people do."

"But you don't have any opinion about what the punishment should be?" the interviewer asked, to which Moore responded, "No."


When asked if we should kill gay people, he refused to give a straight up answer.  This is not complicated.   When asked if we should kill a certain group of people, the answer is always an unequivocal "no."

The appropriate answer to the question "should gays be put to death" is "no, you incredible twit." Moore danced around the question instead of answering it.
 
2017-09-13 09:34:07 AM  
He added: "In 1960, every state in the union had laws against sodomy. And in the beginning of the country, in 1776, all 13 colonies had laws against sodomy. So sodomy is historically against the law."

You know, historically speaking, Christians were given a dinner and show starring lions or a nice vertical lie-down on some crossed boards.

giantmeteor: Oh ffs... how do these people even manage to get dressed in the morning?


In the dark while praying with eyes tightly closed, is my guess. Moore strikes me as the type of guy who 'knows a lot about sin' due to 'research'. Not gay research, but the kind where he complains that his scandalous neighbor just won't stop sunbathing nude, and he almost fell off the ladder against the fence last time he 'caught' her doing it.

Should we execute the gays?

Maybe a little to see how well it plays

.

And, make sure your wife waits

in a different building while she menstruates

.

If a man works on the sabbath or makes lewd talk

We must beat him to death with a rock

.

I have to admit, I'm pretty impressed

with how Christians just use the parts of the Bible that they like best

The headline was "Roy Moore doesn't know if gays should be executed".
The question he was asked was "Do you think gays should be executed?"
His answer was "I don't know"
You yourself quoted his answer of "I don't know"

If Pink News is stretching the truth, then so are you.

"Any headline which directly quotes a question and a Republicans answer is lying."

Shameless pandering to pig-ignorant bigots, misogynists and those generally in the sub-80 IQ category.

Typical strategy of your basic Greedy Old Pig member.

Too bad you guys don't have enforceable laws against Hate Speech like most civilized nations do.  For instance, here in Canada, that ignorant, senile, wrinkled old waste of oxygen would be fined, jailed or censured.

But, no, FREEDUMB OF SPEECH.  YAY! MURRICA! JEEZUS and EAGLES!!!

When I was a kid, I read Magic's Pawn by Mercedes Lackey. The protagonist, Vanyel, was attracted to a another man, Tylendel. Vanyel had been brought up to believe it was evil and unnatural, and was fighting it. He was talking to someone, and they said that it happened in nature, so how could it be unnatural? And, if the powers that be were so against it, they'd not have made it an option.

Sure, Lackey writes a lot of trite fiction... but it stuck with me.

That said, fark Moore. How hard is it to say "No. We should never advocate killing ANYONE for their political beliefs, religious beliefs, racial background, gender, gender identity or sexual partners. That's what happens in barbaric societies." And, if you have to throw a God clause, then how about "I leave judging to God."
