Sorry for starting a new thread....

Look, there are only two options I want to hear from anybody

- He didn't do it; this is a smear
- He need to go away

I can deal with either. Really. Even though I disagree with just about everything Roy Moore stands for, I've got no problem with anyone who wants to say he didn't do it.

But this crap I'm hearing from (some of) his supporters that claim the worst of the accusation are false and that the other stuff is insignificant.... ARRRRGGGG, such people make me want to bang my head against a wall.

Yeah I agree. Also anyone comparing him to Joseph, father of Jesus, also needs to be put in stocks in the middle of some town in Alabama so we can throw fruit at him.

Edit: probably should say husband of Mary but I think everyone knows who I meant.

He's admitted to knowing at least some of the accusers. Someone who dated one of the accusers said they admitted to them about the story back in the day. There's no smear here. The dude needs to go bye bye.

A suitably biblical punishment. You would think Mr. Moore would appreciate it

Yes. An Alabama Republican likened him to Joseph, you know, the father of Jesus? A Christian said this.

I called this out in the other thread but not many people noticed.

Take home message, many “Christians” don’t know the first fucking thing about Christianity. You make a mistake like that, you need to turn in your card, man.

Yeah some state official in Alabama said Moore having sexual contact with a 14 year old was okay because Mary was a teenager when Joseph met her.

The rationalization is strong with this one.

More than one. And once they had said it, it started a boom in stupid statements. It was particularly humorous when Republican talking heads on various networks started shaking their heads at both the statement and the error this represents vis a vis scripture and tradition.

But it has been truly disgusting to see some of the rationalizations. Even the people talking about how times were different when this happened. Ummm, no. What's alleged was a felony then.

I think this is possibly the real test for the GOP. The story is exceptionally well researched and sourced. If they really are going to stand up for what they claim to believe, the state party should withdraw their support, which means that votes cast for Moore are invalid if they're for him as a Republican. He could still run as a write-in candidate, but the votes for the person printed on the ballot wouldn't count.

Won't happen. Absurd to even think it might.

Oh, I don't think it's going to happen either. I just think that really underlines the degree of hypocrisy here.

But do you know who didn't molest, abuse and rape Mary when she was a teenager? Joseph. (Or if he did, that part ended up on the cutting room floor.)

I'm presenting this under a Creative Commons license to do with as you see fit. Go put it on flags, bumper stickers, mugs, and especially put it on yard signs if you live in Alabama.

Edit: Stupid Google Drive. Fixed.

No, the Greek of Luke explicitly states that Yosef was the father.

Ha, well, I was trying to head off the nitpicking from one of the Christians here. As always, I should avoid all Bible related commentary! Catholic bible study was a long time ago.

Hardly. There might be only two reasonable options, but we are already seeing the third start to win out: that maybe he did it, but it doesn't matter because he's still better than the Democrats. Not like we haven't seen this before, many people that disliked Trump voted for him because otherwise the evil antichrist Hillary wins. Well, that and the supreme court seat(s)....

That's what he's saying. That there are only two reasonable options and the rest of it is unreasonable bullshit.
