The Log Cabin Republicans — the nation’s premier Republican organization representing LGBT conservatives and straight allies — has come out with a new ad calling on Christians to act on their morals and “stand up against the theocratic demagogue” that they consider United States Senate candidate Roy Moore to be.
“Roy Moore has spent his entire career using his bigoted brand of Christianity as a weapon to relentlessly attack members of the LGBT community, all the while allegedly preying upon the most vulnerable in our society,” said Gregory T. Angelo, president of the Log Cabin Republicans.
“Moore’s myopic faith prevents him from seeing that a significant number of LGBT individuals are devout Christians themselves, including many members of Log Cabin Republicans. Regardless of one’s sexual orientation or gender identity, it’s time for good Christians to do what good Christians do: REJECT Roy Moore.”
Titled “Good Christians,” the LGBT group’s spot comes less than two weeks to the election between Moore and his Democratic opponent Doug Jones.
“There is a war on Christianity happening right in our midst,” says the ad’s narrator. “Morals are decaying. The very fabric of America is being torn apart. Politicians are attacking our values. Our churches. Our children. It’s a time for choosing. We can’t stand on the sidelines any more. It’s time for good Christians to do what good Christians do. Reject Roy Moore.”
Moore has been under fire since The Washington Post published an explosive report on Thursday Nov. 9 with the accounts of four women who claim he sexually pursued them when he was in his 30s and they were in their teens. Since that time, five more woman have come forward with similar accusations against Moore.
Alabamans will choose between Moore and Jones in the special election on Dec. 12.
