The people who support Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore are a strange lot. They seem to believe that an accused child molester has been ordained by God to serve as their representative in Washington.
Moore spokesperson Janet Porter appeared on CNN Tuesday morning and it got strange fast as she began the interview by telling host Poppy Harlow:
“Congratulations on your unborn child. That’s the reason why I came down to speak, as a volunteer, for Judge Moore. He will stand for the rights of babies like yours in the womb, whereas his opponent will support killing them up until the moment of birth.”
Harlow brushed the comment to the side and began asking about the women who have accused Moore of molesting them when they were teens, including one who maintains that Moore molested her when she was just 14. Porter referred to the accusers as liars and “criminals” who were merely trying to get revenge on the Senate candidate.
As the interview moved along, Porter again commented on the baby Harlow was carrying. It got downright creepy:
“If you care about child abuse, you should be talking about the fact that Judge Moore stands for protection… for the rights of babies, like the eight-month-old baby that you’re carrying now. Doug Jones says you can take the life of that baby!”
The CNN host quickly shut Porter down:
“Let’s leave my child out of this. Let’s leave my child out of this.”
Like so many “Christian” conservatives, Porter only cares about children when they’re still in the womb. Once they’re born, they’re fair game for sexual predators and pervs like Roy Moore and Donald Trump because it’s all part of God’s plan.
As the Bible teaches us, “Jesus wept.”
