Some Things in Alabama Never Change

Whether it's George Wallace and the blacks or Roy Moore and the gays, some things in Alabama never change.

I hope those I know in Alabama have enough sense not to vote for this asshole. They say they are my friend...we'll see.

Homophobic Disgraced Judge Runs For Alabama Governor

Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore officially threw his hat in the ring for Alabama governor on Wednesday.
...
An evangelical Christian who opposes same-sex marriage and supports school prayer Moore made headlines in 2003 when he was removed as Chief Justice after the state's nine-member Court of Judicial Inquiry found he had violated judicial ethical standards for defiance of a federal judge's order to move a Ten Commandments monument he had installed in the rotunda of the state courthouse.

Last month his wife gave an indication of what Moore's platform would be in an email seeking campaign donations she sent to supporters.

Kayla Moore wrote in the email 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.

"And make no mistake: If elected governor of Alabama, my husband will be that spokesman!" she wrote.

Moore has a long record of anti-gay rulings.

In February 2002 when the state Supreme Court ruled against a lesbian mother who was seeking custody of her three daughters Moore used a litany of homophobic adjectives in his written decision.

Moore said that homosexuality is "an inherent evil" that should not be tolerated.

His decision went on to say that the mother's relationship made her an unfit parent and that homosexuality is "abhorrent, immoral, detestable, a crime against nature, and a violation of the laws of nature."
