I should not be excessively surprised. Once upon a time, during the 1980s, I was sent to a military "graduate school" in Montgomery, Alabama. It just so happened to be in early Spring. This particular school was boring in the extreme, and filled with too many "hoo-rah" types. So I decided to see about attending Passover services. Nope, no listing for a synagogue in the phone book. Let's try the Chamber of Commerce. The nice middle-aged lady who answered the phone responded to my polite request for contact information for a synagogue near the base with "Go to hell you Christ-killer!" (I remember it as being all one word).
If that ended up in a piece of fiction, nobody would believe it. Unfortunately, it is all too consistent with the attitude that "My religion is so right that it can be used in a way that disrespects others" apparent in Justice Moore's actions.
Fortunately, I do not practice in Alabama state courts (although I have appeared in Alabama federal courts). Thus, I am not in contempt of the Supreme Court of Alabama. Frankly, Justice Moore's actions are beneath contempt.
