I’ve changed my belief that heroes are right saving everyone. Heroes should save children. Assholes will save themselves trumping over everyone around them in any situation. Assholes find a way out by cheating, lying and ignoring principles of morality.
Predators, like the Alabama GOP candidate for US Senate judge Roy Moore stay in power because they reflect the society. Not everyone, but enough people who support a child molester for greater good. When I’ve heard of Roy Moore’s allegations I was also skeptical at first. But his interview made it clear. Roy Moore admits that he “always asked for mother’s permission” to date a girl. There is no need to ask for the permission, when the girl is 18. Moreover, how creepy could you be to be banned from a mall or to call to school? I think 9 women who have already stepped out make plenty of evidence to investigate the case. Yet, many support a person who is for Christian values pissing on the Bible with his actions. Society closes its eyes on Roy Moore because it’s important to win the election to resist the democrats and to unite in a “fight.” For what I wonder? Definitely not for the rights of teen girls that are traumatized for life by Roy Moore and men like him.
You can’t vote for this man because of other beliefs he supports. Principles of morality can’t be separated and compartmentalized to cherry pick one over the other. His supporters are in denial of the obvious and pretend that those women just came out because of the election. And I agree it’s the case. Why? Because it’s the only time when they finally have a chance to bring him down. They wouldn’t be able to do this 20-30 years ago because women were shamed for actions like this one. Now is their time to come out of obscurity, and to stop being afraid.
Where do we go from here? Why do we fire one man for sexual harassment instantly and this one gets ‘forgiven’ for what happened decades ago? How could he possibly stand for conservative values, proclaiming himself as a defender of marriage when it’s one big problem he doesn’t want to deal with.
And if Roy Moore wins this election, it only means that the society as a whole is not ready to think and act in terms of love and compassion for others (abused children), rather people still prefer thinking in pragmatic terms of monetary rewards and promises. If child molesting is your principle, please don’t justify it by your Christian values. That’s precisely why some people like me don’t believe in the institution. This worship of power and money won’t make America great again.
