Alabama State Auditor uses the Bible to excuse inappropriate sexual advances towards minors!
God has graciously chosen to reveal Himself to us through the Bible. It is the inspired Word of God, which shows us the way of salvation. It is sacred and must never, ever be manipulated to advance a particular agenda.
But tragically, throughout the ages, sinful people have twisted the words of God to justify terrible things. Any time this is done, it is a complete abomination and must be strongly called out and condemned.
Recently, Alabama State Auditor Jim Zeigler attempted to defend Roy Moore by using the Bible to justify inappropriate sexual advances towards minors. Ziegler argued that since Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter, it would be appropriate for a 32-year-old man to make advances on a 14-year-old girl.
Please sign this petition to Jim Zeigler condemning this manipulation of the Bible to protect his chosen candidate. If the charges against Roy Moore are true, they are very serious and the Bible would condemn, not condone them.
Here’s what is going on. Four women have come forward saying that senatorial candidate Roy Moore made sexual advances towards them while they were teenagers and he was in his thirties.
Leigh Corfman says she was 14-years-old when 32-year-old assistant district attorney Roy Moore started pursuing her. Corfman claims that Roy made sexual advances towards her, removing her clothes and touching her in intimate places. If these allegations are true, they are very serious.
At the national level, Republican leaders are strongly condemning Roy actions. But State Auditor Jim Ziegler hasn’t. In fact, he’s been defending them.
“Take the Bible. Zachariah and Elizabeth for instance. Zachariah was extremely old to marry Elizabeth and they became the parents of John the Baptist,” Ziegler said. “Also take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus.”
God designed sex for marriage to be a beautiful physical representation of the spiritual and covenantal union of the couple. Sex is the physical manifestation of the two becoming one flesh. In its designed context, it is beautiful and it is sacred. If the allegations against Roy Moore prove true, they are very significant.
Please sign this petition to State Auditor Jim Zeigler demanding that he not use the Bible in order to justify sexual misconduct!
