    While I don't find "Mo Brooks" (whoever that is) argument very compelling, I should just like to bring out that this is one more thread where the title is selling something fake compared to what is presented.

    Default Mo Brooks: Vote for Moore because conservatism is more important than child abuse

    https://www.mediaite.com/online/rep-...n-allegations/

    “America faces huge challenges that are vastly more important than contested sexual allegations from four decades ago. Who will vote in America’s best interests on Supreme Court justices, deficit and debt, economic growth, border security, national defense, and the like? Socialist Democrat Doug Jones will vote wrong. Roy Moore will vote right. Hence, I will vote for Roy Moore.”

    -------------------------

    Modern American conservatism everybody. Who cares if he's a pedo, at least he's not a lib.

    Good luck with salvaging that party, and any semblance of respectability evangelicals might have once had.

    Isn't that essentially what he's arguing in his statement? Put aside the credibility of the accusations, because conservatism is too important.
    No, he is not arguing that conservatism is more important than child abuse. He is arguing that a couple of specific instances from 40 years ago where the statute of limitations is long gone and evidence is long past should not determine the direction of the country. He is not saying child abuse is henceforth ok because conservatism is more important.
    His is a losing argument, but it is not the argument you are claiming he is making.

    When over 80% of those in prison, 90% of the homeless and 71% of HS dropouts come from fatherless homes, it exposes what's actually child abuse....if anybody really cares?

    Turns out all the caricatures about Alabama being some backwards state weren't caricatures at all.

    Disgusting. Political victories are more important even if that means supporting a pedophile. The GOP has full blown lost whatever moral authority they thought they had.

    Um..

    How is that not saying conservatism is more important than child abuse? The "direction of the country" is specifically in relation to conservatism v liberalism.

    "Roy Moore will vote right" "Socialist Democrat Doug Jones" He's framing it specifically in those terms.

    If the direction of the country is so important, then Moore should support the Strange write-in, so a conservative Senator will be seated rather than a pedophile or a Democrat.

    Yes, indeed he should.
    Oh, and for the fiftieth time, no accusations of pedophilia have even been made.

    What's "actually" child abuse is a 30 something district attorney fondling children and who was apparently so well known for trying to pick up underage girls that he was banned from their local hang out spot.

    I'll give you a solid "B+" for the deflection attempt though.

    Then shame on all of those who were aware of this in the past and did NOTHING to stop it. Now, the motivation is purely political and I can't blindly support that.

    Being morally right has no statute of limitations.

    Not surprising you'll sell out your morality for a political party.
