"(Moore) could have killed Obama, and we wouldn't care"

Outside the local convenience store, a woman who gave her name as Carol said she has known Moore her whole life and called him a good man. Carol doesn’t believe Moore’s accusers, but she said even if the allegations are true, “there’s a thing called grace — God’s grace,” noting that the allegations are decades old.

Inside the store, a man who declined to give his name said, “This is Republican town, man. (Moore) could have killed Obama, and we wouldn’t care.”

Cox, of the Greenwood Baptist Church, said as long as Moore is on the ballot, the GOP candidate would have his support.

“Everything else,” Cox said, “is for the Lord to sort out.”
