On Wednesday evening, Roy Moore shared an article about Carson Jones, the gay son of Doug Jones, on Facebook. Given Moore’s long history of virulently anti-gay remarks, including support for recriminalizing sodomy, sharing the article seemed like an attempt to further demonize Jones.
Moore deleted the post about Doug Jones’ gay son without explanation on Thursday afternoon. But before he did that, many of his homophobic supporters clearly took the bait, as they commented homophobic attacks targeted towards Doug Jones and his son.
“Well the way I see it if god wanted us to be with men on men and women on women and black with white he would have put us on earth that way guess what we are not that way it was Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve so with that said don’t push it on me I get sick and tried of hearing this crap. Just like Obama and the dem’s always trying to push it on us letting men go to girls bathroom just because one day they wake up and say o today I am a woman but to some that is ok well not by me it is not ok I don’t stand for it .”
“Obviously Jone’s was an absent father for his son to be a homosexual , if the election continues as is he won’t be much of a Senator either.”
“Shame they slander a great Alabamian Judge Moore and then the sick left winner shows its perversion”
“Do you know what baby killers, homosexuals, so-called social elites, the underclasses, old hipsters, felons, socialists college students, urban thugs and white trash have in common? They elected Doug Jones!”
Moore’s own son, 27-year-old Caleb Elisha Moore, has been arrested nine different times — most recently in October — on charges such as criminal trespassing, drug possession, and driving under the influence.
