Speaking on his Pass the Salt webcast this Tuesday morning, evangelist and “Christian activist” Dave Daubenmire gave an eye-opening defense of Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, essentially saying that Moore isn’t obligated to tell the truth because the truth would get in the way of God’s agenda.
According to Right Wing Watch, Daubenmire has been an “ardent Moore supporter for years” and argued that Moore’s lies should be viewed as strategic tactics in a football game or in war.
“When I hear people say, ‘Well, Judge Moore is not worthy of the office if he’s lying about what he did,’ I want to grab them and I want to slap them upside the stinking head,” Daubenmire said.
“Judge Moore is trying to infiltrate an ungodly system and the stakes in this campaign are so great for the cause of Christ and Judge Moore is being lambasted by the holier-than-thou Christians who think [the Bible] says we can never lie.”
“It’s best to lie if it advances the kingdom of God,” Daubenmire declared. “There, I said it.”
