In an interview Bruce Register of Alabama a) does not believe Roy Moore’s victims then adds b) if he did sexually assault children “it doesn’t matter, in God’s eyes he would have been forgiven.”
What kind of dumb ass Christianity is this.
1. If I recall Catholic school education God only forgives if you are truly sorry and repent your sins.
Roy Moore has denied but also says he has dated teens with mother’s consent and was banned from a. mall. Seriously how much chaos can you do to get banned from a mall especially an ADA?
Unless things changed in Catholic school not acknowledging wrong doing equals no forgiveness. With so many Alabamans being Southern Baptist I suppose this is their teaching.
2. Is it really up to God to forgive your sins? Doesn’t victim have any say?
In Catholic schools I got mixed messages on this. Some nuns and brothers said you have to make amends to your victim before you ask God for forgiveness and be truly sorry. Others said repent by saying 10 Hail Marys and not to do it again no mention of victims.
I am going to guess Regjster is not a Catholic. Is this what they teach to Southern Baptists you can sexually assault children but if you denounce abortion and same sex marriage in God’s eyes you are forgiven.
Just another nail in the coffin for Christianity well American Christian Fundamentalism.
Oh I predict Bruce and Roy will be in for a surprise when they reach the Pearly Gates. I doubt Jesus would ever forgive child molesters or their supporters that easily. I would hope he read Anne Bishops Black Jewel books where child molesters are tortured and torn to shreds forever by victims of abuse.
