Robert Oscar Lopez on the "Soul-Crushing, Scorched-Earth Battle for Gay Marriage"

 

Robert Oscar Lopez on daring to tell his story about being raised by a gay parent:

"...Since my article came out, I have been through far worse than I ever thought would happen. My job is at risk, and worst of all, my coworkers received an e-mail from a gay rights organization with the title "COMPLAINT AGAINST CSUN'S ROBERT LOPEZ: GAY BASHER." Soon I got e-mails from administrators. People really investigate claims like this.

Gay basher?

What the heck has this movement come to?

For God's sake, I am a bisexual raised by a lesbian couple, who helped countless people dying of AIDS. I've spent my life cleaning up the messes left by gay politics. I wrote an honest essay. That's bashing?

The gay marriage movement has finally crossed the line into insanity. They must burn their own villages to save them from their phantasmal bullies. All the real things that gays could do to improve their real problems are right before their eyes: be humane to one another, forgive others, care for their most needy, and most of all, pick their battles. Support pro-life politicians and adopt foster kids saved from abortion. Vote for Republicans who believe in school vouchers, get bullied gays into safer schools... But they choose not to. They have dedicated themselves to a scorched-earth campaign for gay marriage. And when that war is won, they will have conquered a wasteland. I wonder what Eliot would have to say." -- The American Thinker

    Huh. Man raised by two lesbians becomes bisexual. Who'd have thunk it? And so heterosexuals have another switch-hitter to spread homosexual diseases into their population.

    He has my deepest sympathies. I'm only surprised that he's surprised by the negative attack levied at him. I wonder how long it will take most Americans to realize that the war against decency, morality, and true equality, waged by those promoting gay identity politics, is a war in which there are no prisoners, on their side. The fight to preserve marriage is the fight to preserve freedom. The two are inextricably entwined.

    Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely, but when the corrupted obtain power the damage they do is magnified by a factor of x10.

    My favorite part of his fine piece:

    "It was hard to be a kid growing up with gay parents -- that's all I know. I'm not a lawyer."

    Stay strong Robert.
    And keep talking!
    Shake them up! And don't let them shut you up.

    And help safeguard of the word marriage. Come out for pro-gender marriage and families. Come out for the protecting of the 80 to 98 percent of our children who were not born that way but who can be educated that way.
    Help save the children from sexual abuse and manipulation from the government and the commercial market.

    Robert is a nice guy. I emailed him about his peice and we discussed how his being bisexual was wrapped up in his lesbian mothers orientaiton where mine was the result of a sexual assualt and abusive parents. I hate that he is being attacked and that was one of the reasons I emailed him I wanted to give him encouragement because I knew what he was going to get as a result of his brave article. Robert my prayers are with you. You and your wife and child are in my thoughts. I know how tough it is to live straight when you have these kinds of stressors. Be strong keep the faith and remain faithful. Pray for your enemys it really is like heaping hot coals on them.

    The overarching goal of the SSM campaign is to remove not only the words that carry meaning regarding marriage, but also to prevent people from even thinking such meaning. If we lose the words then we lose the means by which to articulate the meaning of marriage.

    All this gentleman did was write his honest appraisal and he used the words that are available to him. Today.

    Tomorrow they may be gone, unless the rest of us do as the gentleman has done in a public way. Stand firm. Apsire to pursue and to speak the moral truth.

    Mr. Lopez has had a difficult life in some important ways. I agree with much of what he writes, and disagree with much, as well, but I completely support his freedom to express all of it.

    "The gay marriage movement has finally crossed the line into insanity. "

    Prophetic words, as it turned out today.
