Judge Moore & Jesus

Recommended Posts

Gregory Matthews

Former Judge Moore has been accused, as a 32 year-old man of molesting a 14 year-old female.  This is an allegation and not the focus of my comment here.  My focus    is on  one of his defenders who has compared Judge Moore with  Joseph and his marriage to Mary and the birth of Jesus.

For a discussion of this, see:

But the most widely reported comment came from Alabama State Auditor Jim Zeigler, who told the

Washington Examiner, “Take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became the parents of Jesus… There’s just nothing immoral or illegal here. Maybe just a little bit unusual.”

Joseph was so concerned Mary may have been unfaithful when it was found she was pregnant he was ready to refuse to marry her.... This just does not equate with the described behavior of Moore.

It is getting all too familiar and tiresome that everytime someone gets on the ballot that the liberals hate, they start trotting out all these women claiming some incident from many years ago. Problem is, very difficult from the accused to defend himself (usually men). This got very common in the 90s in divorce cases where the to be ex-qife would accuse the husband of molesting the kids and the husband had little recourse but to drop his case. Then you today have a plethora of false accusations which often seriously injure someone's career for life and even when  the accuser is found out to be a liar, nothing happens to her (usually women). I did note that Judge Moore's accuser had at one point been connected to the Hillary campaign. Getting vaguely suspicious! Also, very suspicious that Bill Clinton, who has many complaints of rape and beatings gets a pass from liberals including his wife.

Several accounts of Roy Moore, independent of one another, and more information coming out all the time.

He did it. He was known for it, by a lot of people, as a pattern.

FWIW I don't let Bill Clinton off the hook either: he abused his power over the years, definitely. It was with adult women, however, in every case: not nothing, but also not child sexual abuse.

And 'someone else did something else' is no defense.

If the Republican party does not distance itself from this man, its claims to moral authority are gone. GOP strategist Rick Wilson has said as much: http://rssnewshub.com/-/gop-strategist-rick-wilson-laments-the-throat-bur-89

Sometimes you have to fall on the sword for something greater and it seems to be time for Judge Moore to take one for the team. There is always tomorrow if he can adequately defend himself. Just seems weird how these things get to be so coordinated to happen just at the right time that one cannot adequately have time to defend themselves. However, I will admit, it seems to have happened at just the right time to sink Hillary, but then there were a lot of Democrats that couldn't stomach Hillary either! But this "Me Too" stuff is starting to get to be a bit much.

<<<thread drift alert!>>>

Seems that women are less likely to get cpr from bystanders in a cardiac arrest situation occurring in a public place:

Seems those fears are for a good reason:

As to second story

 

AED was being used, passerby didn't understand proper use and did the 'name calling' and called police. 

As to first story...

Quote

Researchers had no information on rescuers or why they may have been less likely to help women. But no gender difference was seen in CPR rates for people who were stricken at home, where a rescuer is more likely to know the person needing help.

Quote

"It can be kind of daunting thinking about pushing hard and fast on the center of a woman's chest" and some people may fear they are hurting her, said Audrey Blewer, a University of Pennsylvania researcher who led the study.

Quote

Rescuers also may worry about moving a woman's clothing to get better access, or touching breasts to do CPR, but doing it properly "shouldn't entail that," said another study leader, U Penn's Dr. Benjamin Abella. "You put your hands on the sternum, which is the middle of the chest. In theory, you're touching in between the breasts."

Neither of these 'stories' suggest or support the idea that women are less likely to get CPR  in public......wanting something to be true does not make it true. Abit of trolling here......maybe??

Then don't read about it or is it being suggested the allegations are simply not true?

The two articles are quite self explanatory.
