Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, an outspoken foe of gay marriage, said Tuesday that he’s had plenty of gay friends.

“I’ve had many friends who are homosexual,” Moore said during an interview with John Heilemann and Mark Halperin of Bloomberg Politics. “I’ve treated people just like other people. This is not about how I treat people, or how I go to a wedding or a marriage or anything. It’s about the constitution of Alabama and the Constitution of the United States.”

“You wouldn’t be reluctant, personally, to go to a same-sex wedding, then?” Halperin prodded.

“I would not go to a same-sex wedding,” Moore responded. “No.”
