Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore had some choice, bigoted, and hate-filled words concerning the gay community back in 2005 that may effect his chances in the election. Moore told C-SPAN2’s After Words that “Homosexual conduct should be illegal, yes.”
The senate hopeful despised the Supreme Court case (Lawrence v. Texas) that made homosexual-sex legal so much so that he wrote letters to governors in all 50 states demanding the law be revisited.
Gay sex seemed to be so much on his mind that he talked about it again: this time comparing it to beastiality.
“Just because it’s done behind closed doors, it can still be prohibited by state law. Do you know that bestiality, the relationship between man and beast, is prohibited in every state?” Moore asked Press.
“Did I ask you about having sex with a cow?” Press asked in return.
He essentially, then, called it the “same thing.”
“No, it’s not. You mean homosexuality is the same thing as bestiality?” Press shot back.
“It is a moral precept upon which this country was founded,” responded Moore.
A spokesman for Moore’s campaign declined CNN’s request to respond to the candidate’s current position on homosexuality.
He will face off against Sen. Luther Strange of Alabama, before the general election against Dem. Doug Jones.
