Spokesman: Moore 'Probably' Still Thinks Homosexuality Should Be Illegal

(CNN's "The Lead")

By    |   Tuesday, 12 December 2017 06:20 PM

Beleaguered Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore "probably" thinks homosexual conduct should be illegal, campaign spokesman Ted Crockett told CNN on Tuesday.

"Homosexuality is a sin in the biblical sense," Crockett said during an appearance on "The Lead" with Jake Tapper. "That is where Roy Moore is in the state of Alabama."

Tapper responded by asking whether Moore believes the Christian bible should be the law of the United States, to which Crockett replied: "This country was founded on the Christian Bible."

Tapper retorted by saying the country had separation of church and state with laws not rooted in the Christian Bible.

"Jake, you don't understand," Crockett said.

"Does he think that homosexual conduct should be illegal? It's a yes or no question," Tapper said.

"Probably," Crockett responded.

Crocket was then asked whether a Muslim person should be allowed to serve in Congress, and responded by saying "because you have to swear on the bible."

When Tapper told him that was not the law, Crockett responded with silence.

Story continues below the video.

Moore's campaign in early November was rocked by sexual misconduct allegations with one woman claiming the then-32-year-old judge kissed her and fondled her when she was 14. Nine women have made sexual misconduct claims, and Moore has denied all of them.
