Though gay unions will remain banned, vows of Alabama's church/state marriage to be renewed under Moore's watch

by Jeremy Hooper

   In an email sent to potential supporters of Roy Moore's campaign to become Alabama's governor, Kayla Moore (pic., with hubby), the ousted chief justice's wife, reportedly writes that her husband is opposed by people who want to promote gay marriage and who "fear nothing more than the emergence of a powerful national spokesperson for Christian conservatism," adding, "And make no mistake: If elected governor of Alabama, my husband will be that spokesman!"

Relatedly, in an email sent to this guy he totally has a crush on, Birmingham's Tom Mcintire writes, "Hey dude, whatsup. Not much here, just watching a little TV and chillin'. It's so cold outside I don't wanna leave the house, but I need to run to the store and grab some eggs (I wanna make a cake). Anyways, If you want to hang out later, let me know. I just got the 40 Year Old Virgin from Netflix, so we could watch that, or we could play a little PS2. Whatever. So give me call later and, oh yea -- if Roy Moore is elected Governor of this state, I'm moving outta here faster than you can say 'religious extremist trying to legislate from the pulpit.' It's like, why do these people not understand that they can't be using their religion to govern? Don't they realize that their religious beliefs may not be the same as everyone else and therefore it's improper to try and force it onto people? I mean I have my thoughts and my spirituality, but it's personal to me and not my place to force it on anyone. I don't understand why they can't grasp this. Churches, temples, mosques -- for worshipping God and practicing your religion. Government offices, city hall, courts -- the Constitution is your only "man upstairs." Anyways...oh hey, maybe if you come over you can just bring me those eggs so I don't have to run out. So F-ing cold out there! TTYL, Tom."

Kayla's email reportedly wraps things up by saying, "I know I am asking a lot especially right in the middle of this Christmas season when your focus is on family, friends and loved ones," adding "But, I can think of no better time than this Holy Season to begin our campaign to return morality to our country and God to our public square." We contacted Alabama's Jewish Roy Moore supporters to see if they're offended by Ms. Moore's failure to also mention Chanukah as part of the holiday season, and he responded by saying, "Oh, I'm actually not Jewish, my name is Winestone, not Weinstein -- they just misprinted it on the mailing list. So yea, no. But thanks for writing, and Merry Christmas, praise Jesus, homos make me uncomfortable. Yours in Christ, John R. Winestone."
