The views of senatorial wannabe Roy Moore and his now-former staff are as ill-informed as they are extreme.
Moore’s own spokesperson Ted Crockett proved this by revealing on CNN host Jake Tapper’s show that he did not know that politicians do not need to be sworn in on a Christian Bible.
Crockett went on the offensive in their heated conversation, saying, “All you’re trying to do is smear the man. Everybody in Alabama knows that. We’re voting today. We’re going to vote for Roy Moore. We’re tired of this. We’re ready for Merry Christmas, Jake.” Tapper later confonted Ted over Roy’s “controversial comments about homosexuality,” inquiring if he thought homosexuality should be against the law. Replied Crockett, “The reason people support Judge Moore in the state of Alabama is because he’s a biblically based customer of the Bible. The mosaic English law. Homosexuality is a sin in the biblical sense. That is where Roy Moore is in the state of Alabama.” When Tapper asked what Roy feels should be the punishment, a flustered Crockett fired back, “It’s just a sin, okay? … You seem to want to take the whole, 2,000 or 3,000 years of our history and y’all want to throw it out the window as if you’re going to make your own rules, your own man-made rules and do whatever you want in sin, and that’s part of the problem we’ve got in Washington, D.C. today, Jake. We’ve got too many people winging up there. They’re fooling with women they shouldn’t be fooling with, they ought to love their wives. Roy Moore loves his wife.”
The interview went off the deep end when Tapper pressed Crockett over Roy’s belief that Muslims should not serve in Congress. Responded a stunningly ignorant Ted, “Because you have to swear on the Bible. I had to do it. I’m an elected official three terms. I had to swear on a Bible. You have to swear on a Bible to be an elected official in the United States of America. He alleges that a Muslim cannot do that ethically swearing on the Bible.” Answered the CNN host, “You don’t actually have to swear on a Christian Bible, you can swear on anything, really. I don’t know if you knew that. You can swear on a Jewish Bible. The law is not that you have to swear on a Christian Bible. That is not the law. Did you know that?” After an uncomfortably long pause, Moore’s spokesman finally responded, saying, “I know that Donald Trump did it when he, when we made him president.” How happy are you that this man’s former boss won’t be in the Senate?
