While speaking at Magnolia Baptist Church in Alabama on Wednesday, Republican Senate hopeful and serial teen girl wooer Roy Moore said that LGBTQ people and socialists falsified sexual harassment allegations to keep his Christian conservative ideology out of Congress.
Moore has been accused by several women, some as young as 14, of sexual harassment. The Washington Post recently reported that Moore may have been banned from his local mall for skirt chasing. But, during his Wednesday night pulpit pontificating, Moore once again called the accusations “false and malicious” and believed the allegations to be part of a vast Democratic conspiracy to ruin his good ole down-home Christ-lovin’ lady-touchin’ campaign.
“When I say they who are ‘they?'” Moore said to the congregation. “”They’re liberals. They don’t hold conservative values. They are the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender who want to change our culture. They are socialists who want to change our way of life and put man above God and the government is our God. They’re the Washington establishment…who don’t want to lose their power.”
Moore is one of America’s most extreme and high-profile anti-LGBTQ figures. When he’s not blaming LGBTQ people for 9/11, he’s barring queer women from seeing their children! Moore’s anti-LGBTQ bigotry actually had him barred from the Alabama Supreme Court in 2016.
People in the audience called out during Moore’s speech. One person asked about the women and asked Moore if “all the girls are lying.”
Moore stopped his speech to ask those speaking out to be removed.
Some people in the audience yelled back to the original heckler, saying “Does that look like the face of a molester?” and “You ought to be ashamed.” That’s a man’s man.”
Despite the multiple accusations, Moore is still leading Democratic challenger Doug Jones in the polls.
