Several pastors dispute new letter claiming more than 50 faith leaders still support Roy Moore

Another pastor whose name a church match one listed on letter, Dr. George Grant of Parish Presbyterian Church, does not live in Alabama-his church is located in Franklin, Tennessee.

Several have raised questions about the origins of the letter, including Pastor Thad Endicott of Heritage Baptist Church, who asked Al.com that his name be removed from the new list. Endicott pointed to a different letter on Roy Moore’s campaign website published during the Alabama primary-when he says he did support the candidate-that appears to bear similarities to the one Kayla Moore published.

“The list that has recently circulated was evidently copied and pasted from the August endorsements without checking to see if I still endorsed Moore,” Endicott told AL.com

ThinkProgress contacted Roy Moore’s campaign for comment on this story, but did not hear back by press time.

To be sure, some pastors on the new list continue to vocally support Moore despite the recent child abuse allegations. Not one of the largest churches in AL is on the list.
