Sweet home Alabama?

Dear Alabama,

Judge Roy Moore is the Republican nominee for US Senate in Alabama. I was wondering, does your organization share Judge Moore’s views on religion, race, women’s rights, and same-sex relationships? If you are unclear on what Judge Moore stands for let me help you. Some of Moore’s more memorable quotes;

  1. “Homosexual behavior is crime against nature, an inherent evil, and an act so heinous that it defies one’s ability to describe it.”
  2. “False religions like Islam who teach that you must worship this way are completely opposite with what our First Amendment stands for.”
  3. “We have blacks and whites fighting, reds and yellows fighting, Democrats and Republicans fighting, men and women fighting. What’s going to unite us? What’s going to bring us back together? A president? A Congress? No. It’s going to be God.”

If this man is elected to the Senate he will be speaking for and representing the views of the state of Alabama. His views and beliefs, by default, become the states views. As an organization doing business in or promoting the state of Alabama what are you going to do? Staying silent, in my mind, makes your organization complicit with this man positions.

I look forward to your response.

I am a frustrated writer and poet waiting to be discovered. A stand-up philosopher performing on a street corner near you. A Christian with questions but I don’t want to hear your answers. A Buddhist with a bumper sticker on my truck to prove it. A collector of quotes. A grower of lettuce. The Patron Saint of earthworms who name their children after me. A cyclist whose big ass strains the seams of his Lycra bibs. I am American by birth, Southern by the grace of God. My goal in life is to leave an imprint on the lives of the people I love not a footprint on the earth. I am a son, a husband, a father composed of 65%-Oxygen, 18%-Carbon, 10%-Hydrogen, 3%-Nitrogen, 3%-Diet Coke and 1%-Oreo.

    I don’t think this is a good idea — attributing attitudes and beliefs to people who have not actually said them. That’s a problem. And insisting that others take a stand — insisting they take YOUR stand — insisting that corporations denounce an elected official? It’s comparable to Jesse Benn’s recent HuffPost assertion that white athletes who stand for the Anthem are actually standing for white supremacy. As if he asked them?
    If I ever do get my radio talk show, its “bible” will be “Free Speech Handbook,” of which Guideline #12 states my position here: “Be willing to say, ‘I don’t know …'” https://williamatell.wordpress.com/the-william-tell-show/free-speech-handbook/#T14Be_willing_to_say

    • William as we have in the past, we will agree to disagree. If elected, Roy Moore will be the face and voice for Alabama. I own two Honda’s and a Toyota. I shop at Walmart and bank at Regions. I want them to know that “THIS” customer is concerned. I am tired of being quiet.

  4. May I offer some thoughts re: Evangelical Christian support of Mr. Moore?
    1. We all bear the shame and the glory of the Cross. When anyone in our Christian family fails, separates, sins, etc. we are hurt because we belong to the same body.
    2. Major characters of the Bible including the Lord were scorned, falsely accused, and even conspired against.
    Isaiah 8:11-13
    A Call to Fear God
    11For thus the LORD spoke to me with mighty power and instructed me not to walk in the way of this people, saying, 12″You are not to say, It is a conspiracy!’ In regard to all that this people call a conspiracy, And you are not to fear what they fear or be in dread of it. 13″It is the LORD of hosts whom you should regard as holy. And He shall be your fear, And He shall be your dread.…
    All who are accused in public opinion of a crime are innocent until proven guilty. I will cheer when Judge Moore goes to court, and then we can see that he or his accusers are brought to justice. Thanks for post!
