Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore recently got suspended after attempting to obstruct same-sex couples from getting marriage licenses, and some commentators noted that being removed from the bench could serve him well. After all, there’s a gubernatorial election in two years, and Moore is now free to run for the highest office in the state. (He’s run for governor twice before, but as his Christian Persecution platform gets larger, the path to victory becomes a little more clear.)
And wouldn’t you know it, someone did him the favor of setting up a campaign website at RoyMooreForGovernor.com:
My name is Roy Moore, and I’m committed to making gay people go away because they are icky and Jesus doesn’t love them. Like you, I want to play an active role in making gay people’s lives as miserable as our own. I will work at the community, state and country level to make Alabama a safer, better place to raise our children, run a business, and forge a future filled with unlimited promise that is free from the tyranny of Clay Aiken and Sam Smith. I don’t care how angelic Sam Smith’s voice is I’m not listening to it!
If you share my bold vision of a hate filled Alabama, I urge you to vote for me and help make it happen! Together, we can make a meaningful difference — for our families, our communities, and our country.
You’ll enjoy his campaign platform:
The Bible and VeggieTales will be required reading material in all schools and colleges across Alabama.
Church attendance will be mandated by the state.
All public employees will be required to give pension benefits to support private Christian schools.
A witch task force will be set up immediately for the public to report any suspicious or wiccan behavior.
Don’t laugh too hard. Considering Moore’s past, I doubt his actual campaign website would look much different.
