Can’t believe we’re making you watch this godawful video again! Say it with us now …
ONE OF OUR ATTORNEYS IS A JOOOOOOOO!!!
Nope not that JOO ATTORNEY, although you can be forgiven for thinking so, since he is Jewish and he did represent Roy and Kayla Moore’s charming son Caleb on one of his many adventures with law enforcement. But no! Yesterday the lovely Mrs. Moore set the record straight. She was referring to Martin Wishnatsky, a “Messianic Jew” who “writes legal briefs” for the Moores’ scam charity. Oy oy oy! It’s a lot to unpack.
In 1977, Wishnatsky’s Jewish mother was living the dream. Her son had gotten his PhD from Harvard and was working on Wall Street. Okay, so he wasn’t married yet. Maybe he just needed to be set up with Mrs. Schlisselbaum’s daughter? If only she’d mentioned it at mah jongg, maybe this whole thing could have been avoided. Instead Marty went and met a long-haired religious freak on the beach in Hawaii. Since then, all day long it’s Jesus Jesus Jesus! First he joined the Mormons, then he became an evangelical Protestant, and by 1990, he was a full-time anti-abortion protestor in North Dakota! He even spent 18 months in jail for blocking clinics. Vey iz mir!
Poor Mama Wishnatsky, you’re probably saying. What are the mah jongg ladies whispering when she goes to the kitchen for more bridge mix? And also, DOESN’T THAT MEAN THAT THIS GUY ISN’T A JEW?
You’re both. You’re a Jewish person that’s accepted Christ. Jesus was a Jew. Most Jews are not religious. That’s how I grew up. There are the Orthodox who are very serious about Judaism. It’s about whether you think God is real, and whether you’re accountable to him. It’s whether you take God seriously. It took me quite a few years to take God seriously.
Nice try, Wish! But no, you no longer bat for the J Team. Bye, Menachem!
Wishnatsky seems to have bounced around doing missionary work and writing his masterpiece on leaving Mormonism for 15 years. Eventually he washed up on the shores of Liberty University’s law school, where he received his JD in 2012 at the ripe old age of 68. Wishnatsky then went on to clerk for Judge Moore in Alabama, until he stopped being a judge and became a full-time grifter in 2016.
In theory, Wishnatsky writes amicus briefs for Moore’s Foundation for Moral Law. Although we were unable to find his name on any of their recent briefs, and it’s unclear if he’s even licensed to practice law in the State of Alabama.
In short, Martin Wishnatsky may or may not be one of the Moores’ House Lawyers. But he ain’t no Jew. And as for Kayla Moore’s claim that, “We have very close friends that are Jewish and rabbis, and we also fellowship with them.” Well, Southern Jewish Living Magazine found them!
This publication confirmed on Dec. 14 that when Kayla Moore referred to “rabbis,” she was speaking of the current and former leaders of Beth Hallel, a “messianic” congregation in Birmingham. No Jewish group recognizes the “messianic” movement as part of Judaism.
LULZ! They’re not real Jews either! Kayla Moore is lying liar, 1980s bleach-blond perm on fire! What a shame Mrs. Moore won’t be fellowshipping with her fellow lying Republicans in our nation’s capital!
