Alabama Senate candidate and accused child molester Roy Moore claimed 87-year-old Jewish billionaire George Soros will go to hell when he dies, as the Republican nominee said “he’s still going to the same place that people who don’t recognize God [go].”
Moore — who recently received an endorsement from President Donald Trump by name — made the claim during an interview with American Family Radio’s Bryan Fischer, who was a more than friendly host to the highly controversial candidate.
“No matter how much money he’s got, he’s still going to the same place that people who don’t recognize God and morality and accept his salvation are going. And that’s not a good place,” said Moore.
The former Alabama Supreme Court justice claimed that Soros — who is to conservatives what the boogieman Koch brothers are to liberals — is also guilty of “pushing an agenda” that is antithetical to “American culture.”
“His agenda is sexual in nature, his agenda is liberal, and not what Americans need. It’s not our American culture. Soros comes from another world that I don’t identify with. I wish I could face him directly, and I’d tell him the same thing,” said Moore.
One conservative group, the Reagan Battalion, accused Moore of being antisemetic for his comments on Soros’ anti-American “culture”:

Trump tweeted a full-throated endorsement of Moore earlier this week, despite the multiple women who have accused the candidate of sexual harassment, assault, or predatory behavior when they were as young as 14 and 16.
