Whether the allegations against Roy Moore are true or not has yet to be determined. Still there are some weird defenses for the alleged sexual assault. One particularly peculiar defense comes from by the Alabama state auditor who attempted to excuse Moore’s alleged behavior by analogizing them to Mary and Joseph.
From The Right Scoop:
While some Republicans at the national level spoke out against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore on Thursday in the wake of allegations that he initiated sexual contact with a 14-year-old when he was in his 30s, Republicans from his own state seemed to have a different view — with one citing Jesus’ parents to defend Moore’s alleged behavior.
“Take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus,” Alabama state auditor Jim Ziegler told the Washington Examiner on Thursday.
This is all sorts of wrong. Still, as off and some of the defenses may be, people are still innocent until proven guilty in our great country. What do you think of this defense?
