The chair of Alabama’s Republican Party thinks God is pissed because same-sex couples can marry in his state.
“The state of Alabama and the United States of America will reap God’s wrath if we embrace and condone things that are abhorrent to God, such as redefining marriage as anything other than a union between one man and one woman,” Alabama Republican Party Chair Bill Armistead wrote this week.
Meanwhile, elsewhere in Alabama:
• A police officer in Madison, Ala., was arrested on Thursday, Feb. 12, for badly injuring an Indian man who doesn’t speak English who was walking around the neighborhood. He was visiting his son who lives there.
• A 74-year-old child abuser was arrested in Alabama this week after being on the run for 30 years.
• A Klan group is rallying the troops against those pesky new rights that began to be offered in Alabama. The state’s Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore must be very proud to have such reputable backers.
• A teacher at Bob Jones High School in Madison, Ala., was placed on leave this week while Homeland Security investigates him and a DeKalb County, Ala., woman was indicted for torture and willful abuse of a 4-month-old child.
But God is pissed about same-sex couples getting married in Alabama. Interesting.
