With an important election coming up in Alabama people, a prominent evangelist warns that conservative voters should not be distracted.
In the Senate race pitting pro-life Judge Roy Moore against abortion supporter Doug Jones, Civil Rights for the Unborn Alveda King acknowledges the accusations of impropriety against Moore, but maintains that the election should be focused on the issues of the sanctity of life, the sanctity of natural marriage, a healthy and wholesome economy and freedom of religion.
“Judge Roy Moore has certainly demonstrated his commitment to these same principles and the Constitution of the United States and the Word of God for many, many years,” the pro-life activist asserted. “He’s been accused of some things, and they’re totally unsubstantiated – and in America you are innocent until proven guilty.”
King, who is also the founder of Alveda King Ministries, also raises the issue of why, after 38 years, the alleged victims are going public.
“Now, I don’t believe that women should be ignored,” the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., assured. “I believe that women’s voices and their pain is very sincere, and we need healing, so I would never say if there was real genuine evidence, that something would mean that was going on – that it was okay – but these accusations are totally unsubstantiated.”
With that said, King encourages Alabama residents to look beyond those accusations and concentrate on the real issues – and who they truly want to represent them in the U.S. Senate.
Dems sexual misconduct helping Moore?
As the mainstream media continues to center its political coverage on the sexual misconduct allegations waged against Moore, a conservative political scientist says that the admitted sexual misconduct of two Democrats is like a gift that keeps on giving for Judge Roy Moore.
For weeks, Moore was dogged by accusations that he sexually molested or assaulted two teens, ages 14 and 16 – and tried to date several others – while he was in his 30s.
The beleaguered conservative denied all the allegations, but the Alabama Republican Senatorial candidate suffered in the polls against liberal Democrat Doug Jones, who normally wouldn’t stand much of a chance in a deep Red state like Alabama.
But then came the admissions by both Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), and Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) of sexual misconduct.
Dr. Charles Dunn, who is Professor Emeritus of Government at Clemson University, says that news was like Manna from Heaven for Moore.
“The gift that keeps on giving from the Democrats – it’s not just Conyers and Franken, but the explosion of other controversies of a similar nature in Washington, D.C., and around the country which take away from the attention on Moore,” Dunn pointed out. “And increasingly, Moore’s accusers look like they lack credibility.”
Dunn also stressed that Jones has now really lost his only campaign issue – Moore’s credibility.
“His opponent finds himself in the Democratic Party, where this character issue that he was trying to raise against Moore has backfired on him,” the political scholar impressed.
