Jimmy Kimmel Spars With Roy Moore

After getting into a Twitter war with Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore on Thursday, late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel threw more shade at Moore and his so-called “Christian values” during his show that aired later that night.

Moore is the one who picked the fight, going after Kimmel for apparently “mocking” his values.

Kimmel continued to pile on during his Thursday night monologue, calling out Moore for his religious hypocrisy as a candidate who has campaigned mostly on the platform of being a committed Christian.

“If you’re open to it, when we sit down, I will share with you what I learned at my church. At my church, forcing yourself on underaged girls is a no-no. Some even consider it to be a sin,” Kimmel said. “When you commit a sin at our church, at our church, we’re encouraged to confess and ask for forgiveness for the sin. Not to call the women you allegedly victimized liars and damage them even more.”

“But maybe your church is different. I don’t know,” he added.

Kimmel went on to talk about his own experiences as a Christian, but added he would be willing to “put my Christian values aside just for you” if Moore’s invitation was simply a challenge to a one-on-one fight.

“There is no one I would love to fight more than you,” Kimmel said. “So if you are challenging me to a fight, here’s what we’ll do. Let’s find a place to do it. I’ll wear a Girl Scout uniform so you can have something to get excited about.”

Moore has claimed that Kimmel represents a “Hollywood elitist” mentality that looks down on the people of Alabama and other Southerners. The truth,  however, is that Kimmel — like most reasonable people — instead look down on alleged child molesters potentially holding a seat in the United States Senate.
