Rusty Thomas: Attacks On Roy Moore Are ‘Demonic’

Gordon Klingenschmitt and Rusty Thomas were among the dozens of Religious Right activists who gathered in Alabama earlier this month to defend Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore amid multiple reports that he had pursued sexual relationships with teenage girls when he was in his 30s. Following the press conference, Klingenschmitt interviewed Thomas for his “Pray In Jesus Name” program, where Thomas asserted that the attacks on Moore are “demonic.”

Thomas, who runs the organization Operation Save America, called on his fellow Christians to rally around Moore because “this is not the time to play it safe, there is a spirit of the age and it has set its sights on Chief Justice Roy Moore, to take him on and take him out because he represents a danger to the status quo that has been running this nation into the ground.”

“Part of this is demonic,” he said. “We are dealing with lies, we are dealing with fraud, we are dealing with the accusation against the brethren … This is a time for courage and if we have to bear the reproach, if we have to bear the shame to do what it right before God, so be it.”
