Caleb Moore, the son of the holiest man in Alabama, Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, seems to be a hard-partying lover of poon, hoes, and "niggas" - per the below images and tweets culled by JMG readers Jason and Lisa. Young Caleb is also, apparently, the former executive director of the Foundation For Moral Law, the pious Christian group founded by his father and currently run by his mother. As you know, the FML has been busy filing SCOTUS amicus briefs against same-sex marriage and trying to keep gay men from inheriting the estates
of their dead husbands. Praise! Poontang! #NoHomos!

I pulled the 2012 990 form for the Foundation For Moral Law and Caleb Moore is indeed listed as their two-hours-per-week executive director for part of that year. Note his father's $180K compensation for the year he was reelected to the Alabama Supreme Court. That year's 990 lists over $535K in donations, $432K of which went to salaries and benefits. Ahem. According to Part X, Line 25, it appears that another $435K is "due to the Honorable Roy S. Moore." From what I can tell, it looks like the FML took in about $5M from 2006 to 2012. Aside from salaries, it seems likely that much of that money went to the FML's long list of amicus briefs
in cases that often involve LGBT rights.
As some of you have pointed out in the comments, in 2011 Caleb Moore was arrested
on drug possession and DUI charges at the age of 20. It was following that arrest, apparently, that he was made the executive director of the FML, which "exists to restore the knowledge of God in law and government and to
acknowledge and defend the truth that man is endowed with rights, not by
our fellow man, but by God."
