Roy Moore: Republican candidate once claimed homosexuality was more damaging than child abuseRepublican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused of sexually abusing a child nearly 40 years ago, once compared homosexuality to child abuse while serving on the Alabama Supreme Court. Roy Moore, who is running in Alabama’s special election, compared the effect of exposure to homosexuals to child abuse, denying a woman custody of her children because she was dating another woman, even though the children’s father had literally abused the children. “The effect of such a lifestyle upon children must not be ignored, and the lifestyle should never be tolerated,” Mr Moore wrote in a 2002.
