Once Moore, With Feeling

By now we thought we’d pretty much heard everything there was to hear about Roy Moore, the Ku Klux Klan Party’s candidate to fill Alabama’s vacant seat in the U.S. Senate.

We thought wrong.

Oh, we’ve heard about his belief that Muslims aren’t fit to serve in Congress.

That he likes to refer to Native Americans and Asians as “reds and yellows.”

That he believes god is the source of all laws.

That he believes homosexuality should be against the law.

And of course, about his ardent desire to get horizontal with little girls.

Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore

But Roy Moore, bless his heart, may have topped all of that piddling stuff last week when he took to the podium at a rally to inveigh against the spiritual wickedness of the Congress he so ardently seeks to join.

Because if there’s anyone who knows about spiritual wickedness, it’s Roy Moore.

As reported by the Los Angeles Times,

At Moore’s Florence rally, the former judge outlined all the wrongs he sees in Washington and “spiritual wickedness in high places.” He warned of “the awful calamity of abortion and sodomy and perverse behavior and murders and shootings and road rage” as “a punishment inflicted upon us for our presumptuous sins.”

If things are so bad now, a member of the audience asked him, can he point to a time when things were great?

Here’s the good part.

I think it was great at the time when families were united — even though we had slavery — they cared for one another…. Our families were strong, our country had a direction.

 So there was Roy Moore talking positively, even wistfully, about those good ol’ days of slavery.

In front of a crowd of people.

Including the African-American guy who asked the question.

And on Tuesday, it looks like those people are going to send him to the U.S. Senate.
