I get your point but actually – shame on the ministry for not making a public statement that they would like to allow anyone in but they can’t because the state of Alabama would rather see RSO’s freeze to death.
If the ministry rep as well as lots of other people in the country would SPEAK THE HELL UP instead of cowering to the “standard formula” of a news interview, then we’d possibly see an entire state made such a mockery of that they’d feel embarrassed enough to start making changes to their laws.
They want votes? Well, I’m an RSO and I’m also a registered voter, and so are the members of my family.. Imagine how many RSO’s and their relatives are registered voters who will NOT be going to the polls for any of these state officials.
