I'm guessing he wasn't interested

As Republican gubernatorial candidate Roy Moore spoke at a traditional marriage rally Saturday, a Limestone County man held up a sign asking Moore to marry him. The man said he isn't gay but thought it would be a good way to protest the views of Moore, who as chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court once wrote an opinion calling homosexuality "an inherent evil."

I'm fairly confident at this point that Gov. Bob Riley will thump Moore in the GOP primary, but the one X-factor that still worries me is the fact that a state constitutional ban on gay marriage (which, sadly, will pass) will be on the primary ballot. Few things could prompt a sudden influx of Moore supporters quite like the chance to slap gays around by outlawing something that's already illegal, and few things would be worse to wake up to on June 7 than Moore armed with the GOP's backing for governor as a result.

"Homosexual behavior is...an act of sexual misconduct punishable as a crime in Alabama, a crime against nature, an inherent evil, and an act so heinous that it defies one’s ability to describe it." - Roy Moore, in a ruling on a lesbian custody battle. The man actually wrote this in an official court opinion. Please run him out of this state on a rail and send him somewhere else, perhaps Texas.
