Roy Moore, Refusing to Concede, Doubles Down on Anti-LGBTQ Politics

Talk about being a sore loser.

Republican senate candidate Roy Moore has not yet conceded the special election Wednesday that saw Democratic opponent Doug Jones win--Alabama's first Democratic senator in 25 years.

In a video Thursday, Moore explained that while military and provisional ballots are still uncounted, "the battle rages on." That's despite Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill saying that a Moore win would be "highly unlikely" after all the votes came in and that he would likely certify the results showing a Jones win.

Moore continued in the video to hammer away at his positions on LGBTQ rights, citing same-sex marriage and transgender people in particular as ills of the nation.

"Abortion, sodomy, and materialism have taken the place of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness," he said.

Moore said same-sex marriage had "destroyed the basis of family" in the U.S. and scoffed at the idea that "we've even begun to recognize the right of a man to become a woman and vice versa."
