Judge Roy Moore, said in a 2005 interview that he believes homosexual conduct should be illegal. In the interview the hardline Christian conservative was asked by journalist Bill Press: Do you think that homosexual conduct should be illegal today? That`s a yes or no question. Such is Moore`s hatred of gays and lesbians that he didn`t give a typical politician`s ambiguous answer. He replied empathically: Homosexual conduct should be illegal, yes. In the same interview he also equated homosexuality with bestiality.
Moore`s hatred and fear of gays and lesbians is shared by the overwhelmingly evangelical Alabama electorate. That dear friends and neighbors is why a pedophile is expected to win the Senate seat in Alabama.
Evangelicals would cross the street to avoid an openly gay man, but they warmly embrace a pedophile who preys on underage girls.
In the evangelical ranking of sins homosexuality is the lowest of the low, the one transgression that will forever bar a soul from paradise.
Jesus Christ, who had plenty to say about the sins of pride, hypocrisy and jealousy, but not single word about homosexuality, would feel more at home with gays and lesbians than with the religious hypocrites who demonize them.
The white evangelicals in Alabama who are about to elect a pedophile to the Senate and the white evangelicals in America who elected a sexual predator to the White House have forever stained the white evangelical movement.
Anyone who still identifies as an evangelical is complicit in the moral depravity that resulted in a sexual predator reaching the highest office in the country. It`s incumbent upon those evangelicals who are outraged by their brethren`s embrace of Trump and Moore to reject the evangelical movement, and identify themselves simply as Christians.
