More on Roy Moore

One of the biggest shifts in the electoral landscape has been the attitudes of Christian Evangelicals toward personal moral rectitude in political candidates. Christian evangelicals used to think personal moral rectitude was important, by overwhelming majorities. Once accepting Donald Trump as their man, the majority position has shifted — indeed almost reversed. By similarly overwhelming majorities, Christian Evangelicals no longer seem to care. The line was ‘We’re electing a president, not a pastor.”

That’s helping Roy Moore in Alabama. At this point, he retains the support of bible-believing Alabamans, who seem to think that his predilection for young girls doesn’t amount to much. The shift has me shaking my head, but as I don’t personally know any bible-believing Alabamans, I can’t really ask them what in the world they are thinking.
