It looked impressive earlier this week when more than 50 pastors pledged their support for the embattled Roy Moore in an open letter posted to Facebook by Moore's wife, Kayla.

Except at least three of them didn't.

Three of the pastors whose names were used in the letter have said that not only did they not grant permission to be included, they weren't even contacted, AL.com reports.

And now they want their names removed, AL.com reports:

  • Tijuanna Adetunji, Pastor in Montgomery: "I was not asked about this story or allegations."
  • Dr. George Grant, Pastor in Franklin, Tennessee: "Not my state. Not my issues."
  • Pastor Thad Endicott: "The list that has recently circulated was evidently copied and pasted from the August endorsements without checking to see if I still endorsed Moore."

Indeed, Kayla Moore's Facebook letter looks to be a cut and paste from a campaign message from August, when the same 50-plus pastors expressed their then-support for Moore over his primary opponents.

Three paragraphs were added to the top of this week's Facebook letter, but the rest is nearly verbatim from the August message.
