I grew up in the big time Evangelical subculture, where a man like Roy Moore’s penchant for child sex/assault and alleged rape was all too typical. There was always some nasty little sex secret with a pastor going on. In public—like Moore—it was all about godly lives. In private it was all about double standards.
From rape to who got abortions, to how evangelical churches protected their pedophile molesters, one story emerged: Protect the “Work” at all costs! The children who a pastor rapes are told to keep silent lest they “Hurt the Lord’s Work.” And the children are blamed: “Your skirt was too short! You led him astray!”
Roy Moore isn’t the abusive anomaly, he’s the patriarchal norm. This goes back to the Bible itself that puts brutal men in charge of churches where women must be silent. Voices raised in protest are exiled. Moore is a poster boy for evangelicals like Ralph Reed, who should be in jail for double dealings with the casino owners. He’s a poster boy for the professional hater Franklin Graham. Moore, with his gun-waving, Bible-quoting is no different in hypocrisy than is Sarah Huckabee, as she quotes Jesus with one side of her mouth and lies for Trump daily out of the other.
AWAY with these scum! Take back the House in 2018.
