Top Evangelical Leader To Roy Moore: Take A Lie Detector Test

Top Evangelical Leader To Roy Moore: Take A Lie Detector Test
Roy Moore

Over the past several days, many in Alabama’s evangelical community have stood by embattled GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore.

Some have even said they would support him even if the allegations of sexual misconduct were proved to be true.

Now, Southern Evangelical Seminary president Richard Land has penned an open letter to Roy Moore in the Christian Post, imploring Moore to take a lie detector test to prove his innocence.

I hope and pray that these allegations against you are false and I know in the American justice system you are “innocent until proven guilty.” However, this is not the legal system, but the court of public opinion.

Judge Moore, as a brother in Christ, I implore you, for the sake of your family and your supporters, but even more importantly, for the sake of our Savior and His reputation, to arrange as quickly as possible to take a polygraph test concerning these accusations. I know the results of such a test are not admissible in court, but this is the court of public judgment. I can only tell you if I were in your position and I were innocent of these allegations, I would insist on having a polygraph test administered as soon as possible.

Passing such a test would cause this metastasizing cancer on your candidacy and the damage it is doing to the Christian witness to evaporate instantaneously. There is no defense quite as effective as the truth, especially when it is accompanied by the demonstrable proof of the type a successful polygraph test would irrefutably provide.

Considering the gravity of the allegations against Moore, and the fact that a seat in the U.S. Senate is in play, I think Moore would be wise to do so.

If he’s as innocent as he claims, he should submit for a lie detector test immediately.

If I were in his position, I would.

The truly innocent have nothing to fear.
