Faith leaders hold event against Roy Moore in Birmingham

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WSFA) -

Alabama faith and moral leaders spoke Saturday morning to condemn Roy Moore for his policy stance and the allegations recently reported against him. 

The faith leaders addressed the Washington Post article that reported allegations that Moore harassed and assaulted young women, but they also spoke out about Moore's public policy stance, which they refer to as immoral.

Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II, president and senior lecturer of Repairers of the Breach and co-chair of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call For Moral Revival, called Moore "arrogant" and a proponent of "religious extremism." He said Moore stands for policies that support a repeal of the Affordable Care Act, as well as tax cuts for the wealthy. He said those stances are not indicative of the Christian faith. 

Barber said these are policies that will hurt people, including the people supporting Moore. 

Barber and other faith leaders also condemned Moore and his campaign for his stance on LGBTQ people voter laws. 

The event, held at Tabernacle Baptist Church in Birmingham, ended with a chant from the leaders: "Vote or Die."
