Credibly accused child molester and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore once co-authored a “Law and Government” textbook that discourages women from running for office and disparages women’s right to vote.
According to a bombshell report from ThinkProgress tonight, the study course:
[P]ublished in 2011 . . . instructs students that women should not be permitted to run for elected office. If women do run for office, the course argues, people have a moral obligation not to vote for them. The course is also critical of the women’s suffrage movement, which in 1920 secured some American women the right to vote.
Twice-unseated former Alabama Chief Justice Moore and his three male co-authors made the course, Law and Government: An Introductory Study Course, available on Amazon, where Moore appears on the back of the packaging as one of nine while male “Featured Speakers.”
Moore details his patriarchal ideology further in the curriculum that has just come to light. According to ThinkProgress:
The curriculum was a product of Vision Forum, a now-defunct Texas-based evangelical organization headed by Doug Phillips, which taught ‘Biblical patriarchy,’ a theology that prescribes strict, unequal gender roles for men and women. According a statement on the Vision Forum’s website, ‘Egalitarian feminism is a false ideology that has bred false doctrine in the church and seduced many believers.’
The lesson goes on to say:
One of the most destructive ideologies of the last 50, hundred years have been the doctrines of feminism, which have transformed our culture and have paved the way for abortion on demand, the homosexual agenda, undermined our church, and subverted the doctrines of the biblical family . . . [A woman is] not a warrior. She’s not a judge. She’s a woman. Created by God. Glorious in her place and in her conduct and in her role . . . Nothing is said in scripture that supports the notion that she is qualified or called to be a civil magistrate.
One wonders what Alabama Governor Kay Ivey must think after saying she would vote for Moore, despite believing his accusers.
The Independent Fundamentalist Baptist sect of evangelical Christianity to which Moore belongs encourages courtship between grown men and girls of about 14, the age of his first victim to come forward, Leigh Corfman — the cult-like group’s goal being to “mold” little girls into the perfect Biblical “help mate.”
It stands to reason, then, that the course also plugs the theocratic Moore’s 2009 autobiography, So Help Me God: The Ten Commandments, Judicial Tyranny, and the Battle for Religious Freedom, in which he describes meeting his wife Kayla Moore (née Kisor) when she was age 23. However, in the same book, he proceeds to contradict himself, saying he met her many years earlier, a timeframe he later clarified in an interview as eight years, which would have made his wife 15 years old at the time they met.
The Vision Forum closed in 2013, after Lourdes Torres-Manteufel sued Doug Phillips, Moore’s co-author and a man Moore openly admires, citing a long emotionally, psychologically, and sexually abusive relationship outside the bonds of Phillips’ marriage, which he instigated when Ms. Torres-Manteufel was only 15 years old.
Birds of a feather flock together. 40% of Alabama Evangelical voters have doubled down on Moore since the allegations came to light. Many of them, along with President Trump, have said that they would prefer a child molester to a Democrat in that seat.
However, as more and more of Moore’s radical ideology comes to light, they will be presented with a moral choice that will reveal how “Christian” their values really are.
