I’ve been seeing versions of this claim since at least the Reagan years.
Jesus made conservative women attractive so we would be attracted… he also made liberal women ugly so we would stay away.

I don’t think the proper response is to point out that Michael Moates is kind of homely himself. The core problem is judging people by artificial standards of appearance — something that is totally irrelevant to their humanity and moral standards and intelligence. Isn’t the “We win the political debate because we can find pretty women in our clique” intrinsically wrong and fallacious?
I think we can just say that someone who makes this stupid argument has already lost.
