The Media Is Evil, People Are Stupid, Churches Are Slothful, And The Republican Party Is Apostate
Those are the reasons given by Roy Moore, in this interview, for his loss in the Guber Primary.
But first, the million dollar question:
[Michael Peroutka]: Well, will you run again?
[Roy Moore]: I don’t know, Michael, it’s hard to say right now. I think I’ll continue to teach right now, and very possibly may run sometime in the future.
Now, the Apostates:
RM: We didn’t have a lot of the Christian people who would vote in a Republican Primary — some did of course. I think we’ve got to — it brought to my understanding that the political parties have so departed from Christian faith that they both have just left the Christians disenfranchised. They’ve left people of faith with no where to turn to. Their faith is in money, not in God.
MP: And yet, people of faith — “Christians” continue to turn to, primarily to, the Republican Party, and equate (and we’ve talked about this on our program here) they equate the Republican Party with Christianity, and we just see the evidence is contrary to that.
RM: Well, I think so. And I think that’s very plain.
The evil media and stupid people:
MP: Now, do you think that the people of Alabama — maybe you’ve answered this question already. I’m asking it a little different way, but do you think the people of Alabama really understood what was before them here?
RM: I don’t think so. I think it’s very difficult to get it out when you don’t have the press [telling the truth.] I think the press is there to continually deceive the people as to what’s going on. They continually don’t reveal things about the other side as to what’s going on in the world of politics.
Don’t forget the slothful churches:
MP: Did you feel like you got support from the Christian community?
RM: Well, we needed more. Let me just put it that way.
Throughout the interview Moore, as usual, plays ‘fast and loose’ with history and the law. For corrections of Moore’s mistakes and misrepresentations, read this post.
