An Alabama church has come under fire for comparing Republican Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore to Jesus.
The Living Way Ministries Church in Opelika was criticised online after sharing a Facebook post of a sign that was put up outside its church which said “They falsely accused Jesus. Vote Roy Moore”.
Moore, 70, who is a Christian, has been accused of sexual misconduct with young girls but has denied the claims deeming them a conspiracy from “lesbians, gays, bisexuals and socialists”.
The Church’s politically sparked billboard may be in violation of Internal Revenue Service rules governing political speech by churches and charities.
Although the church has taken down the post, people have continued to criticise the sign on its Facebook page.
One person posted: “Actually for those bible ignorant folks – Jesus was NOT falsely accused… He was guilty as charged and had planned from day one for the verdict and sentence to be what it was
“How dare you compare a politician to Jesus. Jesus was A-POLITICAL seeking to serve only a heavenly kingdom.”
A church official told a Huntsville-based station WHNT-TV that a congregation member posted the message without telling the pastor, who had it removed two days later.
