There was a time when the title ‘Christian’ meant a moral and righteous human being. In this day and age, it’s a warning that you’re about to meet a hypocrite. Republican senatorial candidate Roy Moore is a Christian Dominionist who believes biblical law supersedes the constitution. He, however, has no problem whatsoever taking money from his charity, after saying he wouldn’t.
Roy Moore runs a charity called the Foundation for Moral Law. Because Roy is an upstanding citizen and moral Christian, he, of course, would never take any donations to his charity for administering it. He said so don’t you know? Moore is neither moral nor righteous. He is a debased lying hypocrite who will violate his oath of office the moment he takes it if the people of Alabama soil the Senate yet again with another reprobate.
Perhaps in the onslaught of breaking news the last couple of weeks regarding the Russian collusion of the Trump administration, you might have missed this gem from the Washington Post:
But privately, Moore had arranged to receive a salary of $180,000 a year for part-time work at the Foundation for Moral Law, internal charity documents show. He collected more than $1 million as president from 2007 to 2012, compensation that far surpassed what the group disclosed in its public tax filings most of those years.
When the charity couldn’t afford the full amount, Moore in 2012 was given a promissory note for back pay eventually worth $540,000 or an equal stake of the charity’s most valuable asset, a historic building in Montgomery, Ala., mortgage records show. He holds that note even now, a charity official said.
Tax filings have also revealed that the Foundation for Moral Law employed two of Moore’s children and his wife Kayla is the president of the charity. She was paid $195,000 the last three years. The charity often promotes Moore’s book which is all about the terrible persecution of Christians in this country who only want to make homosexuality illegal.
Moore is famous because he put a statue of the ten commandments in front of the Supreme Court but was ordered by federal courts to remove it. He was also removed from the bench as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme court because he refused to recognize same-sex marriages. Moore quipped, “what’s next bestiality?”
Moore is a theocrat who is so far right that he makes Limbaugh look like Jill Stein. When asked what he thought about DACA, Moore had no idea what it was. Moore is a custom-made idiot, and that’s why Steve Bannon is so eager to get him into the Senate.
The repercussions from this charity scam Moore has been running have yet to reverberate in Alabama, but this is undoubtedly going to be a fascinating race come November.
