A few days ago The Federalist declared that Christians should vote for Roy Moore because God sometimes chooses evil men in order to achieve the greater good. Well, today they outdid themselves. An excerpt:
Here is one thing we know and should admit from the start: in his early thirties, Moore had a penchant for dating teenagers. Apparently, this was not an uncommon occurrence during this time. In fact, this practice has a long history and is not without some merit if one wants to raise a large family. Times have changed. But, like it or not, four decades ago Moore dated teenagers (even his wife is 14 years younger than he).
Let’s suppose the accusations are mostly true. Then from a conservative moral perspective, Moore is guilty of lying, trying to have pre-marital sexual relations with girls half his age, and pressuring them to do so without first determining that they reciprocate. There is no sugar-coating what he did. Moore was a dirt bag and is currently lying about his actions rather than confessing the truth and asking for forgiveness.
If elected, Moore would join the ranks of other undignified politicians who have been liars and fornicators. I have a 14-year-old daughter. If I caught him doing what was alleged, for starters I would kick him where it counts. Hard. That being said, I don’t think it’s wrong to vote for Moore.
This piece is gross but also a useful reminder that, as always, tribalism is the only thing that matters anymore. https://t.co/NX5iRf1xFa

“I have a 14-year old daughter. If I caught Roy Moore doing what was alleged, I would kick him where it counts. But if he did it to 9 girls who aren’t MY daughter, I’m ok with putting him in the US Senate.” – The Federalist, redux

Oh good The Federalist has now published an article saying it was fine for Moore to prey on teens – he wanted a big family! Needed a young lady for long term birthing! What other choice did he have! pic.twitter.com/kzXfYRg1Os
