The swine of conservatism - Hot Air

Some cultural conservatives, in evangelical Christianity especially, combine a belief in male headship in churches and families with a “boys will be boys and girls shouldn’t tempt them” attitude toward sex. It’s a combination that’s self-contradictory and deeply toxic, handing men not just power but a permission slip to abuse it — which, predictably, they do.


I don't know whether Roy Moore did what he is accused of or not, but if I had a 14-year old daughter, I wouldn't let her anywhere near him.
