South Carolina Pastor Descends Into Crazy Attack On Women To Defend Of Roy Moore
A South Carolina pastor who supports Senate candidate Roy Moore blasted the allegations of sexual harassment against the Alabama Republican, saying they’re part of a “war on men” and claiming that “more women are sexual predators than men.”
“More women are sexual predators than men,” Pastor Franklin Raddish told AL.com. “Women are chasing young boys up and down the road, but we don’t hear about that because it’s not politically correct.”
But not all pastors agree with Raddish. Dozens of Alabama pastors released a letter Friday calling Moore unfit for office and accusing him of preaching “extremist values” while comparing him to politicians who have “cynically used Christianity for their own goals.”
The letter also takes aim at Moore for the sexual misconduct allegations against him, saying his actions serve to “reopen the wounds of anyone who has been abused by leaders who should have been committed to compassion, to justice, and to healing God’s world.”
Multiple women have accused Moore of sexual misconduct in recent weeks, including one woman who accused him of sexually assaulting her when she was 16 and another who said Moore initiated a sexual encounter with her when she was 14 and he was in his 30s.
Multiple women have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct from Moore that targeted high school girls when he was a 30-year-old assistant district attorney. Moore has denied the allegations.
Moore has repeatedly denied the allegations, calling them politically motivated, and has resisted calls for him to drop out of the race from Republican party leaders.
