  • Roy Moore declines to debate Dem opponent

Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter.

Conservative firebrand Ann Coulter on Thursday defended embattled Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore against allegations he preyed on underage girls when he was in his 30's, arguing that back in those days it wasn't as "creepy" as it is now.

But at least two members of the GOP are standing firmly by Moore's side.

Politicians were quick to condemn Moore's act and there were calls for him to withdraw from the race if the allegations proved to be true.

Ziegler also spoke to the Washington Examiner, and it didn't get much better. Zeigler also attempted to rely on the Bible to muster a justification for Moore's alleged sexual misconduct.

Aly Raisman says she was sexually abused by USA national team doctor
Clubs are now "required to report child abuse or neglect, including sexual misconduct, to proper authorities, including the U.S. He was in a position of power, actually named the national medical coordinator for USA Gymnastics up until the summer of 2015.

"Take the Bible. Zachariah and Elizabeth for instance. Zachariah was extremely old to marry Elizabeth and they became the parents of John the Baptist", Zeigler told The Examiner. "Also take Joseph and Mary. They became parents of Jesus". "There's just nothing immoral or illegal here".

"Maybe she just needs to take a polygraph test". During the second, she said Moore removed his clothes, took off her shirt and trousers, and touched her over her bra and underwear, according to the account in the Post.

The first problem here is that the allegation isn't just that Moore "dated" 14-year-old Leigh Corfman, but rather that he removed her clothes and touched her, and guided her hand to touch his penis. He has vehemently denied the allegations of pursuing the teenagers, saying they are "the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation".

Since the report's publication, more than a dozen Republican lawmakers have called on Moore to drop out of his Senate race, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Moore, a Republican and the former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, criticized his opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, for embracing "transgender issues and transgender rights in the military", the Montgomery Advertiser reports.

"It was 40 years ago", Hall told Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale.

"I refuse to stand down", Moore said in a fundraising email to supporters today, The Hill reports. He was 32. She was supposedly 14. Deep south Alabama is one of the most religious states in the Union - with 82% of adults saying they believe in God with absolute certainty and nearly half the population being active evangelical Christians, according to the Pew Research Center. "All of the others are of legal relationships with women who were of age at a time when Roy Moore was single".

"If these allegations are true, Judge Moore should resign", Lee said through a spokesman.

"The other women that they're using to corroborate: number one, one was 19, one was 17, one was 16".

And another state politician, Bibb County GOP chairman Jerry Pow, told Dale that although he didn't support Moore's alleged actions, he would still vote for him. "However, we need to know the truth, and Judge Moore has the right to respond to these accusations", he said. "I'm not saying I support what he did".
