US Conservatives say pedophilia is okay because Jesus was son of one

Moore’s backers in the Bible Belt used equally religious rhetoric as they brushed off the accusations.

Alabama state Auditor Jim Ziegler compared Moore to another highly regarded figure from the Good Book.
“Take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus,” Ziegler told The Washington Examiner.

Conservative Christians are just as bad as Muslims when it comes to rationalizing backward behaviour.

Fake news. Nowhere are they saying that pedophilia is okay. If so, cite it. I've already read this and nowhere do they excuse pedophilia. At worst, they talk about biblical figures and their youth but has nothing to do with the accusations.

They're talking about Moore being a victim of fake news. Meaning they don't trust the accuser, who is a former Hillary Clinton campaign employee, especially after all the efforts from Dems and their financiers to put violence-inciting plants at Trump rallies and liken that to Trump supporters. They have very good reason not to trust WaPo and co.

As usual, leftists will conflate not trusting the source of news and the accuser, and defending the accused's character against what they see as fake news, to supporting pedophilia.

Idiocy as usual. Which is exactly why the OP posted this along with every other bait thread he posts.

AndSixx has this type of world view and not much worth engaging

AndySixx wrote:Obama used his power to cater to identity politics..

He sided with Michael Brown before evidence came out chiding the police while praising a guy who robbed a store and attacked a cop portraying this person as a victim while not addressing the issue of criminal behavior whatsoever.

If you want hyper partisan look in the mirror. Obama is the quintessence of all that is wrong with America today.. people looking at the superficial which is skin color and ignoring idiotic behavior.

More people are seeing yours and like minded contrived virtue signaling for what it is hence why Trump will not b impeached and he will win in 2020 with unhinged lefties blaming everything under the sun again like Russians, white supremacy, and so on.

Eventually some people might grow up but hey if they don't and want to watch themselves lose again and again I'm okay with that too. Watching adults throw fits like kids is better than TV.

Somewhat worse by the looks of things - the guy molests young kids and they invoke their sacred Mary and Joseph.

From Time -

(WASHINGTON) — An Alabama state official is citing the Bible to defend the Republican U.S. Senate candidate accused of sexual advances on girls. State auditor Jim Ziegler says “Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter,” suggesting that Roy Moore acted in a divine tradition if he in fact made sexual advances toward a 14-year-old girl.

Theologians and pastors, among others, expressed revulsion that Mary and Joseph would be used to counter allegations of sexual misbehavior with a minor. They also said Ziegler got the facts wrong and ignored the cultural context of the time in which Jesus lived.

“If this is evangelicalism, I’m on the wrong team,” the evangelical commentator Ed Stetzer wrote in Christianity Today. “But it is not. Christians don’t use Joseph and Mary to explain child molesting accusations.”

But Jesus is the son of god, not the son of Joseph. He and Mary didn't fool around, Mary and god did. Joseph and Mary didn't have relations until well after Jesus was born. Senator kiddy-toucher may actually want to read a book if he wants to use this argument.
Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?

Yes, she was always known as the Virgin Mary, Mother Mary.

If anyone else said this, they'd probably want to start a war over it. Note Roy Moore might still win in conservative White Christian Alabama.

A stuffed eggplant will win Alabama if it's on the republican ticket.

The only reason this race has any significance is that Trump has a razor thin majority in the Senate, and three Republican Senator (Lake, Corker, McCain) openly hate his guts and are not bending over.

Fair enough

From today's Guardian:

Politicians from both sides of the aisle said on Sunday Donald Trump’s handling of allegations of sexual misconduct against Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate in Alabama, was not good enough and he should call for Moore to withdraw.

Appearing on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday, the US treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, repeated the White House line that was first articulated by the White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders.

“If the allegations prove to be true, he should step down,” he said.

Dick Durbin, a Democratic senator from Illinois, countered that it was Trump’s “responsibility to do more when it comes to this situation in Alabama”.

John Kasich, the Republican governor of Ohio, agreed the White House response was not good enough and added that he had thought Moore, a hardline Christian conservative twice removed from his state’s supreme court, “too divisive of a person to go … to the Senate” even before the allegations were made.

The Washington Post reported this week that an Alabama woman said Moore had sexual contact with her when she was 14 and he was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney. Three other women told the Post Moore had sexual contact with them when they were teenagers.

Moore, 70, has denied the allegations and said they were politically motivated. On Saturday, he told a Republican audience in a suburb of Birmingham: “In the next few days, there will be revelations about the motivations and the content of this article that will be brought to the public. We fully expect the people of Alabama to see through this charade.”

On Air Force One on Saturday Trump, who is travelling in Asia, referred reporters to Sanders’ original statement, although he did add that he did not know about Moore’s case because he did “not watch much television”.

Trump himself has been accused by least 16 women of sexual misconduct or assault. He has denied the allegations and Sanders said last month all those women were lying.

Also have Snowe and Collins.
