via Evangelicals Slam Use of Mary and Joseph to Defend Roy Moore’s Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Pastor and Billy Graham Distinguished Chair at Wheaton College in Illinois, Ed Stetzer, has slammed the use of the biblical Mary and Joseph’s relationship to defend Southern Baptist Alabama Judge Roy Moore against allegations that he initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32, and other evangelicals share his outrage.

“Bringing Joseph and Mary into a modern-day molestation accusation, where a 32-year-old prosecutor is accused of molesting a 14-year-old girl, is simultaneously ridiculous and blasphemous,” Stetzer, told AL.com. “Even those who followed ancient marriage customs, which we would not follow today, knew the difference between molesting and marriage.”
