Kayla Moore posts support from 50 pastors; 2 ask for their names to be removed

Source: Birmingham News

Kayla Moore, wife of Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, shared a letter on Facebook over the weekend indicating support from more than 50 Alabama pastors. Not all the pastors said they gave permission for their name to be be used on what appears to be a recycled letter from before the GOP primary, however.

After the letter was published on AL.com, Tijuanna Adetunji of the Fresh Anointing House of Worship in Montgomery, said she was not contacted about the letter and did not give permission for her name to be used.

The letter appears to be a version of one already posted on Moore's campaign website. That letter, posted prior to the primary, contains all the same wording as below but with three extra paragraphs at the top, including a sentence referencing the Aug. 15 vote.

"The list that has recently circulated was evidently copied and pasted from the August endorsements without checking to see if I still endorsed Moore," said Endicott.

The letter of endorsement from 50 "pastors" (some weren't really pastors) was posted to facebook by Moore's wife, Kayla. Apparently what she posted was a letter from back in August before the allegations came out.

My first thought was how much younger his wife was.

According to articles she was 24 when they married,Moore was 38. 14 years younger.

Just heard a woman who knew him say,” Everyone knew to stay away from him.”

This latest one is worse. People are now putting the facts together. But many are still in denial,the same way they ignored Trump’s past.

Like that.

Had an email in the Prayer chain,of all places repeating a Sermon one of the Leaders made,comparing Trump to Churchill.

Last,final straw.
