The sportswoman opened up about the Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore who is known for his radical anti-LGBT views (he said that gay sex was the same as sex with animals and that is why it should be criminalized). Recently Moore has been accused of sexual harassment by 9 separated women, some of whom were underaged when the incident took place. And some of Moore colleagues stood in his defence saying he was libeled because of his anti-LGBT views. But Navratilova’s opinion is quite different.

The lesbian tennis player took on Twitter to condemn those conservatives who fight for the right to discriminate against gay people bringing an argument that their Christian religion demands them to do so. However they are ready to vote for Moore who is accused of something the Christian religion is definitely not okay with. “When they have a problem baking a cake for a gay couple because it’s against their religion, but they are ok voting for a pedophile. Got it,” the woman tweeted, “The Christian Right has lost whatever moral compass it might have had. Nothing about what Roy Moore has done has anything to do with politics. He is a pig that should have been in jail.”
