Oh, Poor Bobby - Part Deux

Robert Oscar Lopez

National Organization for Marriage (having nothing better to do) has come to the defense of embattled professor Robert Oscar Lopez. I wrote about “Bobby“ on Monday. He is under fire for his abject misogyny and homophobia.

Our friend Brian Brown, head of NOM (and one of the sob sisters of Sodom) calls it an “inquisition” and he has started a petition at ActRight to save Bobby's job. According to Brown.
Robert Oscar Lopez is a tenured professor at California State University, Northridge, raised by lesbian parents, who has become an outspoken supporter of marriage and the inherent rights of children to know and be loved by their own mother and father. His is the rare voice in academia willing to speak up for marriage and the rights of children. This has made him a ferocious target of gay and lesbian activists bent on silencing him.

Yeah, well Lopez has been a voice of irrational opposition to same-sex marriage and absolutely unhinged opposition to same-sex parenting. If he has become an academic Humpty Dumpty then all the signatures in the world are not going to re-assemble him as a sane critical thinker. Robert George take note. You could be next.

The bottom line is that religious belief does not excuse bigotry. Academics have a responsibility to their students. Exposing them to opposing views is one thing. Disparaging their sexual orientation or gender is over the line of an “opposing point of view.”
