Comedian and late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel has mentioned Alabama senate candidate and Evangelical Christian Roy Moore several times on his program, Jimmy Kimmel Live! Yesterday, Moore decided to “fight” back by tweeting on Twitter:
If you want to mock our Christian values, come down here to Alabama and do it man to man. #ALSen
Sounds great Roy – let me know when you get some Christian values and I’ll be there!
Despite D.C. and Hollywood Elites’ bigotry towards southerners, Jimmy, we’ll save you a seat on the front pew.
Kimmel, showing why it is never a good idea to get into a fight with a comedian, replied:
OK Roy, but I’m leaving my daughters at home! P.S. – wear that cute little leather vest.
During Thursday night’s monologue, Kimmel said:
I accept the invitation. I’m going to come down with a team of high school cheerleaders. … And when the girls and I show up, if you can somehow manage to keep little Roy in your cowboy pants, you and I will sit down in the food court and have a chat about Christian values.
There is no one I would rather fight. I will put my Christian values aside to fight you. I’ll wear a Girl Scout uniform, so you have something to look at. Whoever wins the fight, we’ll donate the money from tickets we sell to whatever charity we want. I’ll donate mine to the women who claim you molested them.
If you have not seen the Anthony J. “Tony” Barbieri (AKA Jake Byrd) video of Roy Moore’s recent rally at Magnolia Springs Baptist Church in Theodore, Alabama, please check it out below. It provides a serious, yet funny look into the minds of Moore supporters. It also shows how homophobic and bigoted Moore really is.
I liked Jimmy Kimmel but I creased myself watching Jake Byrd! The way he got those voters, especially the old guy in the yellow shirt, into saying being a paedophile was okay so long as he wasn’t a democrat, was brilliant.
The only problem I have is that, underlying it all, it is sad to see such prejudice, bigotry, and stupidity. Anywhere else in the civilised world Moore would be barred even from standing. In Alabama it appears he will probably be elected; am I reading that right?
Moore will probably still win. Sigh….
You are probably right. Electing him will show how bankrupt Evangelicalism has become. They have sold their soul to the Republican Party — generally speaking. I’m old enough to remember a day when Evangelicals would have soundly rejected men such as Trump and Moore. Sadly, those days are gone. All that matters now is controlling the government and advancing the culture war.
