Moore seeks to refocus campaign on conservative religious values amid firestorm

By Elise Viebeck, Dino Grandoni, and John Wagner

Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama sought to refocus his campaign on the conservative religious ideals most likely to motivate his base voters, dismissing the national firestorm over allegations that he pursued teenage girls when he was in his 30s.

Addressing a gathering at the Huntsville Christian Academy in Huntsville, Ala., on Sunday night, the former judge suggested that he was investigating his accusers, threatened to sue The Washington Post and called on the United States to restore its culture by going “back to God.”

“We can be proud of where we came from and where we’re going if we go back to God,” Moore said at his second public event since The Post reported the allegations of misconduct last week. “If we go back to God, we can be unified again,” he said.

  1. “conservative religious ideals” ?

    His ‘god’ interfered with a ‘virgin’, probably still in her early teens, and got her pregnant.

  2. Bring me my Bow of burning gold;
    Bring me my Arrows of desire:
    Bring me my Spear: O clouds unfold!
    Bring me my Chariot of fire!

    Well, chariot of fire or not, he seems to have ignited some sort of reactionary conflagration in his country, by repute he scores very highly on arrows of desire, but the Christian right thrives on clouds of ignorance!

    (Thou shalt not get caught thieving or raping????) 🙂

    I see Trump is also focussing on “conservative religious ideals” – in support of deplorables, who having been selected as international sports emissaries and representatives of their university and country, have disgraced themselves by acting as common thieves!

    At a news conference, UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley, and Jalen Hill admitted stealing from a shopping centre in Hangzhou.

    Three US athletes caught shoplifting in China have thanked President Donald Trump for helping free them after he wondered if they would be grateful.

    The trio, who were held on 8 November and flew back to Los Angeles on Tuesday, apologised for their actions.

    President Trump had said they were heading for a lengthy prison term.

    The first-year students were arrested ahead of a match in Shanghai, accused of thieving expensive sunglasses from a high-end mall.

    White House chief of staff John Kelly has detailed how Mr Trump intervened in their case during his own Asian tour.

    “The president was saying, ‘It’s not too serious. We’d love to see this taken care of in an expeditious way.'”

    The White House chief of staff said China agreed to reduce the charges, leading to their release.

    The players looked sheepish at Wednesday’s press conference as they apologised to their teammates, coaches, family, university and the people of China.

    US thieves abroad, apparently need to have presidential intervention, to keep them above the law (and protect them from foreign so-called judges????)! 🙂
