WTF is the AFL-CIO thinking? They just endorsed Roy Moore, a virulent theocrat, for the Alabama Supreme Court. Roy freaking Moore, man who quite literally wants to put gay people to death. And their excuse for the endorsement is nonsense:
State AFL-CIO President Al Henley said Monday that it’s the first time the union has backed Moore, who was the only Republican endorsed for state office when the organization met in Montgomery to pick its favorites.
Henley said the AFL-CIO doesn’t share Moore’s view on separation of church and state but that he had a record as a circuit judge in Gadsden and as a Supreme Court justice from 2001-2003 of treating the average person fairly in court.“He’s not controlled by corporate interests,” Henley said.
Oh yeah, he treats the average person fairly. Unless they’re gay, then he demands that their children be taken away from them even if that isn’t even at issue in the case. And he declares that they should be thrown in jail or put to death. And forget being treated fairly if you’re not a Christian. WTF?
