“Rabbi” Noson Leiter claims Moore is being persecuted because he supports “transgender bathroom bills” and opposes “LGBT indoctrination in schools.”
A self-proclaimed Orthodox rabbi from a right-wing Hasidic enclave in Spring Valley, N.Y., best known for saying Hurricane Sandy was God’s retribution for New York legalizing same-sex marriage, is campaigning for Roy Moore.
“The great flood that annihilated civilization in the days of Noah was triggered by the recognition of same-gender marriage,” the delusional rabbi claims.
“We need Judge Moore to stand up to the LGBT transgender mafia,” he claims. At another point, he calls out the “gay terrorists.”

More anti-LGBT statements came from Christian right blogger Elizabeth Johnston, who bills herself as “The Activist Mommy.”
She said Moore’s opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, “stands for the destruction of human life through abortion and the destruction of the natural family” through same-sex marriage.
There were many other anti-abortion comments as well.
Porter, who organized the event, said the speakers would not take questions about the allegations against Moore. Moore himself spoke by denying the claims, the first of which were published by The Washington Post; now a total of nine women have come forward to accuse him of misconduct.
The accusers said Moore sought or had dating relationships with them when they were in their teens and he in his early 30s, and one of them said he touched her in a sexual manner when she was only 14, under the age of consent.
“They’re not only untrue, but they have no evidence to support them. … The Washington Post is not evidence,” Moore said, according to the Advertiser.
Many prominent Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, have said Moore should leave the race. Moore said McConnell is the one who should step aside.
Moore left the stage without taking questions.
Currently, the Democrats are leading in the polls with a complete turnaround.
