It’s unclear why Moore shared the story with his Facebook followers. Of course Jones’ son is happy his father won the election, but Moore is famously anti-LGBTQ.
In a 2005 interview, Moore said that “homosexual conduct” should be outlawed and called homosexuality a “crime against nature” in a court decision. Following the 2015 Supreme Court decision that legalized gay marriage, he said he thought it would “literally cause the destruction of our country.”
Ahead of the election, Moore blamed a “conspiracy” of LGBTQ people and “liberals” for the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct that came to light against him.
“They don’t want conservative values,” he said. “They’re the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender [individuals] who want to change our culture. They’re socialists who want to change our way of life.”
Given his past comments on LGBTQ issues, people enjoyed pointing out the irony of Moore sharing a link from a magazine that named him a runner-up for the “Phobies,” or the “worst homophobes of 2017” on Thursday morning.

By Thursday afternoon, Moore had deleted his Facebook post.
