U.S. Senate candidate wants to ban gay marriage and strip transgender rights
Former Chief Justice Roy Moore makes a decisive attempt to run for Senate in 2020. Earlier accused of sexual harassment of underage girls, Moore delivered a speech last week asking him to return the United States 50 years ago when “We did not have the same sex marriage. We did not have transgender rights. Sodomy was illegal.”
A conservative Republican previously spoke to the Huntsville Republican Men’s Breakfast Group, where he proposed restrictions on the rights of sexual minorities.
“We have got to go back to what we did back in the sixties and seventies back to a moral basis,” Moore said. “We did not have a national healthcare system. You know when Obama passed this thing rising all our costs and business started going down the tube everybody said it was going to be repealed. You never hear anybody in Congress talk about it now. Our indebtedness was $22 trillion. Back in the sixties and seventies it was much lower. It was a sixth of that. Abortion was not legal when I went to Vietnam. It was passed later. It was oked later. We had abortion laws in our country and our state. We did not have same sex marriage. We did not have transgender rights. Sodomy was illegal. These things were just not around when my classmates and I went to West Point and Vietnam.”
Also, Roy Moore decimated transvestites, criticizing their performances in front of a children's audience.
“We have drag queens teaching kindergarten children in this state and this community….in Huntsville in Mobile they taught kids and they dress them up in drag,” Moore told the audience. “Where does this come from? Gender identity is being taught in California to young kids and parents have no choice but to let their kids be taught that.”
