Here from The Federalist
(a right-wing group — thought not as I incorrectly wrote originally associated with the legal group hoping to pack the judiciary with the right sort of judges for all time) is an article by Tully Borland
, associate professor of philosophy at Ouachita Baptist University,
who says Alabama should vote for Roy Moore
for U.S. Senate even if he did what he is accused of doing.
It covers a lot of ground, beginning here:
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.
Borland accepts the word of Moore and defenders, and not the reporting of the Washington Post and others, in discrediting women who said Moore tried to molest them.
But suppose he did try to have sex with two unwilling teens? Even then, Borland says, it's never wrong to vote for the lesser of two evils. To Borland, Moore is less evil than opponent Doug Jones,
because Jones supports abortion rights, including in late term
when the handful of abortions that are performed nearly always relate to severe health problems for mother and/or fetus. Borland sees no nuance.
Why are no Republicans or Democrats calling for Jones to step aside if not for the fact that they are really not that serious about the immorality of supporting infanticide in the womb? If Moore should step aside, so should Jones.
Borland's capsule bio describes him as "superhero against the dark forces of political correctness."
Borland is getting ripped on the web pretty good
. Unless I miss my guess, he's a Tom Cotton type. Smirks at criticism from his inferiors.
UPDATE: OBU and its dipshit prof decide maybe
they should say they don’t support criminal
sexual abuse of children no matter how much they disapprove of LEGAL abortion. But of course
he'd still endorse a vote for Moore, pedophile or not.
