Give Dave Daubenmire some credit: The Christian Right activist openly admits that he doesn’t care if Roy Moore is lying about molesting a little girl and hitting on several of them who were underage at the time. Getting a conservative Christian in the Senate matters more than whatever he may or may not have done to those children.
Daubenmire said as much on his “Pass the Salt Live” webcast earlier today:
“When I hear people say, ‘Well, Judge Moore is not worthy of the office if he’s lying about what he did,’ I want to grab ’em and I want to slap ’em upside the stinking head,” Daubenmire said. “Judge Moore is trying to infiltrate an ungodly system and the stakes in this campaign are so great for the cause of Christ and Judge Moore is being lambasted by the holier-than-thou Christians who think [the Bible] says we can never lie.”
“It’s best to lie if it advances the kingdom of God,” Daubenmire stated. “There, I said it.”
I propose we substitute that line every time a Christian wants a Ten Commandments monument up on public property. “Thou Shalt Not Lie” should at least come with a giant asterisk that directs you to the disclaimer that lying is okay as long as it’s to advance the conservative Christian agenda.
We’ve been saying for a while now that’s why evangelicals continue to support Donald Trump: they don’t care about his non-stop lying as long as he nominates conservative judges for every possible opening on the courts. So what if he grabs women by the genitals without their consent? So what if he’s a bully online? So what if he’s been married multiple times, never asks God for forgiveness, and has no business in the Oval Office? Who cares about Russia? If he’s doing their bidding, they don’t give a damn about his morals or ethics.
But so far, only Daubenmire has admitted the real reason.
