Poll: 37 percent of Alabama evangelicals more likely to vote for Moore after allegations

Source: The Hill

Nearly 40 percent of Alabama evangelicals say in a new poll that they are more likely to vote for GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore after allegations of sexual misconduct arose against him.

A JMC analytics poll finds 37 percent of the evangelicals surveyed say the allegations against Moore make them more likely to vote for the GOP Senate candidate in the upcoming election.

Just 28 percent say the allegations made them less likely to vote for Moore and 34 percent said the allegations made no difference in their decision.

In all, 29 percent of respondents in the poll said the allegations against Moore would make them more likely to vote for him, compared to 38 percent overall who say the allegations would make them less likely to support Moore.

1. Of course they're MOORE likely to vote for the ol' pervert.

But then, they were going to vote blindly for him anyway.

To the mammon worshipping, human suffering causing, death cult that is today’s Grand Old Pervert Party. They cannot credibly ever claim again to be Christian.

5. Something interesting that I've noticed of late

There seems to be a movement away from calling evangelicals "Christians". The move may seem like a small one, but I think it's significant as Christians wrestle to reclaim the branding from many of the hateful evangelicals.

13. Two takeaways from this.

1. Ewwwww!

2. 28% say they are less likely to vote for the sick bastard. The ones that are more likely or said no difference were always going to vote for him.

Losing 28% of your base is going to hurt anyone.

22. My thought precisely . . .

What exactly is "more likely to vote for" the guy they were already committed to voting for? They're going to punch the ballot a little more firmly, put a little extra ink in the box next to his name?

I can't imagine there's more than a negligible number who now intend to register to vote and then actually make it to the polls, so the "strong support" of his base is merely window dressing to the obvious.

The 28% of Evangelicals who've rejected him, however? As you say, that's putting a major hurt on his chances.

17. Makes sense, weirdly

Apparently, for (too) many evangelicals, this is normal

We need to talk about the segment of American culture that probably doesn’t think the allegations against Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore are particularly damning, the segment that will blanch at only two accusations in the Washington Post expose: He pursued a 14-year-old-girl without first getting her parents’ permission, and he initiated sexual contact outside of marriage. That segment is evangelicalism. In that world, which Moore travels in and I grew up in, 14-year-old girls courting adult men isn’t uncommon.

I use the phrase “14-year-old girls courting adult men,” rather than “adult men courting 14-year-old girls,” for a reason: Evangelicals routinely frame these relationships in those terms. That’s how I was introduced to these relationships as a home-schooled teenager in the 1990s, and it’s the language that my friends and I would use to discuss girls we knew who were in parent-sanctioned relationships with older men.

41. Of course - to the evilangelical, a woman's sole purpose is to get married and have kids.

So a "14 year old girl courting adult men" makes sense to them, especially if the girl has either no siblings or too many siblings to help her Mom take care of at home.
So a shy interest or a typical teenaged desperate attempt to escape Mom and Dad's thumb and play "grown up" is taken to mean she's ready to be someone's wife, or otherwise to have a grown man take care of her.

The fact that it's the men making the choice all along to get a girl who doesn't have enough experience or self confidence to actually know what she wants means nothing to them. If the girl is old enough to start thinking about the opposite sex as "cute" or interesting, she's ready to F***.
So far as they're concerned, the evilangelicals infantilize and own their women - viewing them as a step or so above a dog in the eyes of their communities.

Personally, I think they view women as equivalent to breeding stock that also does drudge-work. They just decorate the breeder/servant role with faith-based flattery so they feel virtuously important.

20. To the true fundamentalist, this news is from Satan

The good Christian man Roy Moore, who loves Jesus so much he martyred himself by installing a Ten Commandments Monument, would never commit evil. All the women claiming he did were sent by Satan to bring him down. If you want to yell out “get thee behind me, Satan!” you have to vote for the most holy candidate, Roy Moore.

If the Holier Than Thou Brigade actually believed in God, they would demand the truth from Roy Moore. And then they would vote for Jones, who is more Christ-like. That won’t happen.

Fortunately for America, people like this are a minority even in the Bible Belt.

they are powerless in all other aspects of life, so they shit on others any chance they get. They could give two shits about Gawd or the “teachings” of the Bible. Those are just excuses to feel better about themselves as shitty human beings. Moore says he’s Xtian, so they are sticking by him. They are team players in that regard.

You can't be both. You can be a supporter of child molestation or you can be a Christian...there is no middle ground here. This is just an example of people choosing child molestation over Christianity. 29% of the Alabama republicans support child molestation. That has now become a FACT! I'm sure this FACT makes Christian Alabamans angry. Looks like the only Christians in Alabama are democrats or independents.

What ever happened to 'do unto others as you would have them do unto you?'

Here a 32 year old guy tries to assault a 14 year old girl, and has a record of 'dating' high school girls...and they are more likely to vote for Moore?

These aren't Christians. Sorry. I think the terms 'Pharisees' and 'hypocrites' are both far more apropos.

49. Look at when the evangelical movement took off

I keep telling anyone who will listen that evangelicals took off in the South when schools were integrated. "Christian" schools popped up everywhere, almost overnight. It took bigger churches to support these schools and it was only natural for these separatists to form new and bigger congregations of like minded people. The increase in home schooling is a similar racist phenomena, but combines racism with a distrust of authority of any kind. Anybody who thinks these people, for whom their very existence is tied to xenophobia, care what the rest of the country thinks is sadly mistaken.
