For a indepth analysis on why Roy Moore is still a hero to the Evangelical Christians, go read this excellent piece by Infidel753.
A cursory trip around Gooperville blogs will show you how the Goopers are reacting to the Moore allegations. (Hint: They don't believe the women, and they sympathize with the sexual predator. Surprise!)
Here's one incredible response from a rabid far right Trumper sent to me via email (h/t R.D.):
I have news for everyone: At 14, any girl would LOVE to have any attention from a 32 year old guy. Was it sex or was it a guy flirting to see the reaction of a cute 14 yr old? I don’t know the facts, there could be pictures of Moore’s having sex with teenagers for all I know, and if THAT IS THE CASE, he needs more penalty than just stopping his run for the senate!~ But, until we know for sure he’s guilty, why say he can’t run? The girls who are also attacking Moore say their 14 yr old friend ‘told them he assaulted her’….Ya, I’ll be no other 14 yr olds have ever bragged that a 32 yr old came on to her. Also, there are people asking “WHY WOULD THESE GIRLS SAY THIS IF IT WEREN’T TRUE?” Um…how about DEMOCRAT MONEY!?
The above is classic "blame the victim and side with the sexual predator." (But never forget had it been a "libtard" accused, this person would be spittle-flecking screaming for justice. Hypocrisy at its finest.) This is an excellent example of the sort of person who supports and swoons over a pig like Trump.
However, not everyone believes the women accusing Moore are lying. Thankfully, there are calmer, rational heads who see Moore for what he is: A moral blight on his state and religion.
The Birmingham News:
"The seriousness of these incidents cannot be overstated. They should not be parsed with talk of statutes of limitations or whether proof exists. Proof beyond a reasonable doubt is a consideration for the courtroom, not the ballot box.
When choosing our representative before the rest of the world, character matters. Nor should these women's statements be diminished because the incidents are decades old. If readers objectively look at the reality of life for sex assault victims - at the public doubt and vitriol they face - they'll understand why girls and women do not come forward readily, or early. And sadly, the reactions of many over the past several days support modern understanding of women's reluctance to voice these things.
They stayed quiet while Moore ascended in local and state politics, but they have spoken out as he seems on the verge of attaining national office. For that, Alabama and America owe them respect and appreciation.
We believe these women. As a news organization, we have independently investigated as many of these claims as possible and have found no reason to doubt the accounts outlined in the Washington Post. If anything, the stories we've heard in Etowah County have only further corroborated them.
In our view, Moore has already revealed himself as grossly unfit to be a U.S. Senator before these revelations. He has been twice-removed from statewide office for his defiance of the law. His views on women's rights, same-sex marriage and religious freedom no longer reflect the majority of Alabamians. And they are incompatible with the governance of this country. He has said that the murderous 9/11 attacks on America and the tragic school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut may have been God's will because America had sinned."
