A pastor supported GOP Senate front-runner Roy Moore for pursuing younger women, following allegations that Roy Moore harried and violated adolescent girls when he was in his 30s.
Pastor Flip Benham, who appeared alongside other anti-abortion advocates at a press gathering with Roy Moore, suggested on an Alabama radio program that there was nothing wrong with dating adolescent females, stating that Roy Moore never did so without their parents’ approval.
He is married to a younger lady and supposedly, he did so because there was something about the simplicity of a young lady, that’s genuine, pure and true and that’s what he was looking for.
Roy Moore previously said that he generally didn’t date teenagers, but said he might have done so and that he never dated girls without their parents’ permission, and has dismissed accusations that he initiated a sexual association with a 14-year-old girl in 1979 when he was 32.
It was claimed that when Roy Moore returned from his assignment of duty in Vietnam with the Army, numerous ladies his age were then taken or married and that there was nothing wrong with dating younger women with parental consent.
All of the women or many of the females that he perhaps could have married were not free then, they were now married, so he looked in another direction and President Trump, who supported Roy Moore’s primary opponent, Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.), earlier this year, seemed to throw his support behind Moore despite the sexual misconduct allegations from various females.
As Alabama headed to the polls to elect their next senator, the race has overshadowed recent media coverage as nominee Roy Moore stands indicted of sexually preying on numerous underage teenagers, and in some instances, touching them inappropriately.
Typically, President Donald Trump chose to defend him.
But while Donald Trump’s kind of approval of Moore may ultimately prove to be the most outstanding, Moore nevertheless has a loyal supporter base that doesn’t intend on leaving his side. In fact, they’ve already tried to justify the things he’s cited of, even though Moore has categorically dismissed them.
As it turns out, Moore stated he had first seen his wife, Kayla Moore, when she was as young as 15 years old.
When he was deputy district attorney, which was several years before they got married, he had noticed her at a dance performance and he was standing at the back of the hall and she was up front. Moore stated that after he had first observed her when she was 15 he knew she was going to be a special person in his life.
He then started dating her when she was 23, and they married a year later.
The news that has garnered a lot of late about Moore’s prior conduct which has been astonishing and alarming to say the absolute least, and even in the center of a stream of women coming forth about accusations of sexual harassment, or otherwise misconduct, whether it’s in Hollywood, the media, or the chambers of Congress these accounts somehow prompted Trump to support Moore.
