If you were wondering just how extreme — not to mention out of touch — some of the people who most fervently support Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore are, you need look no further than the evangelical group “Concerned Women for America.” Their leader, Penny Young Nance, told NPR that everyone should vote for Moore because he’s pro-life.
Nance was asked: Is Moore worthy of even being in the Senate? Her reply:
“That’s a question for the people of Alabama. Unfortunately, the Democrats could have won this handily if they had been willing to put forward a pro-life Democrat.”
Translation: It doesn’t matter if Moore is a pedophile who has molested young girls and was once banned from a mall in Gadsden, Alabama. All that matters is he wants to restrict a woman’s right to make her own reproductive decisions.
What about the allegations against Moore? Again, Nance refused to budge an inch:
“This was a terrible accusation that was held until a month before the election. I think there still needs to be due process. I think people in Alabama need to go forward looking at the allegations.”
So if an allegation isn’t made five minutes after a sexual assault takes place, that invalidates it? Those are some interesting situational ethics Nance and her deluded group have going.
Nance then went for the trifecta of shame by daring to assert that being pro-choice is much more offensive than harming children once they’ve been born:
“But what the people of Alabama are troubled by is the fact that Doug Jones supports abortion, even late-term abortion that requires dismemberment of a baby!”
Why is it that so many of these so-called “Christians” are adamant about protecting fetuses but are more than willing to accept a man who gets his thrills by abusing young girls? Apparently once a child is delivered, he or she is on their own and may be preyed upon by whatever pervert happens to wander by with ill intent.
