"[T]here is something about a purity of a young woman, there is something that is good, that's true, that's straight."

Alabama Pastor Flip Benham - notable for his claim that Roy Moore may have dated teenagers because all the adult women were taken - made another curious claim about the Republican candidate for the Senate:

"The lady that he's married to now, Ms. Kayla, is a younger woman. He did that because there is something about a purity of a young woman, there is something that is good, that's true, that's straight and he looked for that."

Moore has not explicitly denied dating teenage girls while in his 30s, telling Fox's Sean Hannity,

“It would not have been my customary behavior."
