The newly inaugurated Republican governor of deepest Alabama, Robert Bentley, sez you ain't his "brother" unless you're a card-carrying, self-professed and sanctified Christian.
If not, you may proceed directly to hell on the nearest rocket toboggan.
"Anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I'm telling you, you're not my brother and you're not my sister, and I want to be your brother," Bentley said, and he had the gall to say it from the pulpit in which Dr. Martin Luther King used to preach the equality of all.
If there was ever a state well suited to an evangelical politician, or ever a state that deserved him, it might be Alabama.
And trust us, we sooo want to be Alabama's brother.
