At Roy Moore Event, Religious Allies Praise Candidate's Anti-LGBT Record

21 November 2017

Asked if she was advocating for Moore, Conway said: "I'm telling you that we want the votes in the Senate to get this tax bill through".

White House aides on Sunday said Trump - who faced his own allegations of sexual misconduct and was caught on tape bragging about forcibly grabbing women without their consent - is uncomfortable with the allegations against Moore but thinks voters should decide his fate.

For Republicans, Moore's refusal to drop out of the race since the allegations surfaced has led to talk of ejecting him from the Senate if he's elected in deep-red Alabama.

But at least four pastors on that letter, which apparently had been recycled from before the GOP primary and before the sexual assault allegations had come to light, say they hadn't given permission for their names to be used again.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., are among the many national Republicans who have urged Moore to step aside.

"If the media were really concerned about all of these allegations, and if that's what this is truly about, and the Democrats, Al Franken would be on the ash heap of bygone half-funny comedians", she said.

Her reason: Trump never admitted wrongdoing and Franken did.

In the letter, the ministers say Moore denigrates people of other faiths, doesn't want to expand Medicaid for "over 400,000 poor and working poor Alabamians", uses racial and anti-gay slurs, wants "to entangle government with religion", and claims only Christians should have civil rights.

The good news is that many Republicans have called for his removal from the race, and more continue to do so every day.

Anyone who argues that President Clinton was in the right is just plain wrong, but what President Clinton did has exactly zero to do with Roy Moore. With the Senate scheduled to be out the last week of December, the next open session would not be until early January.

"I believe in the Republican Party and what we stand for, and most important, we need to have a Republican in the United States Senate to vote on things like Supreme Court justices, other appointments the Senate has to confirm and make major decisions", Ivey said. And Roy Moore did, indeed, win that. She said she decided against going public with her accusations at various times in the past three decades because she was afraid that her kids would be shunned in Alabama, where Moore was rising in prominence as a judge.

A leading figure among religious liberals is speaking out against Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore.
