It seems like every day a new revelation is revealed in the continuing story of Judge Roy Moore. It began with a woman accusing him of inappropriate sexual conduct towards her when she was a young girl. This accusation was about a period of time that is 30 years ago. And then other women came forward with similar claims.
While I have no idea whether any or all of these claims are true or not, the timing seems to be suspect to me. Why did they wait so long? And if they did decide to come out because he was running for Senate, why did they not do it during the primary when another Republican might have a chance of winning instead of now when they are throwing the election to the Democrat.
And lately a number of reports have come out that perhaps this was some kind of a plot by the Democrats to discredit Roy Moore. Recently it has been reported that one woman making these claims worked for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Another woman came forward saying that a reporter had offered her thousands of dollars to make false claims against Moore.
I certainly am not a handwriting expert but I would hate to bet my life on such evidence.
The democrat running against Moore, points out that the people of Alabama have little to lose by electing him. They cite that this is a temporary election and that the results will only be good for a year and a half. So why not vote for him and if you are not satisfied you can vote him out at the end of the special term.
Here is the problem with that. The Republican majority in the Senate is already paper thin. And with at least one of the Republican majority, John McCain being a closet Democrat who votes against almost anything that our President put forward that majority is even thinner. We cannot afford to lose even one seat, even if it is just for a year and a half. A lot of damage can be done to this country in that time.
Now I know that there are people that are ready to crucify Roy Moore over something that happened over 30 years ago. Perhaps you might consider the advice that Jesus gave to a crowd who were intent on stoning a prostitute. “Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone”.
What I know beyond a reasonable doubt is that the only perfect person who had absolutely no skeletons in his closet died on a stake around 2000 years ago. The rest of us can only strive to be more like him.
I also have faith that people can change. I recall the story of Saul of Tarsus who was one of the worst persecutors of Christians and yet he was able to change and become the Apostle Paul.
Since all of these accusations date back many years I have to assume that Judge Roy Moore is a different person today than he was back then, whether he was guilty or not at that time.
I repeat, we cannot afford to lose even one seat in the Senate, so find it in your heart to do what is right for our country today. If you bring another Trojan horse into the Senate, who knows what you will unleash.
