The recent number of alleged sexual assault charges brought forth is unprecedented. From movie mogul Harvey Weinstein to Congressman John Conyers and Senator Al Franken to Matt Lauer of NBC—all have been accused of sexual impropriety.
From a Christian perspective, we can be thankful there at least seems to be some limit to what is morally acceptable.
But from a secular perspective, it seems as though almost any behavior is condoned. No wonder these sexual assault charges arise when promiscuity and immorality are so prevalent in our culture.
I have been a supporter of Judge Roy Moore, and I respect the way he stands up for Judeo-Christian values. I even made a contribution to his campaign. Judge Moore, who will face a very serious battle for a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama in a special race on Dec. 12, has also been accused of sexual misconduct. When these rumors come to light, it makes you wonder about their validity.
Sometimes allegations of sexual misconduct are absolutely true and should be dealt with, as with former President Bill Clinton. Other times they are trumped up, as I believe they were for Donald Trump right before his election as president last November.
There are conspiracy theories presented by some that say that Moore’s opponents will stop at nothing to see him defeated.
Most likely, the charges against Moore won’t be proven or disproven before the election, but his opponents have done their job to raise doubts in voters’ minds.
I admit that I wondered if the rumors were true. An old adage has it that where there is smoke, there is fire, but as I talk with friends such as Janet Porter and also with my friend Tom Ertl, there is reason to believe the charges are completely false.
Below is a guest editorial Tom wrote that we published online. It has already been viewed by more than 40,000 people. If you know anyone in Alabama, please forward this to them or share it with your social media followers. He makes a very strong case for Judge Moore’s innocence.
