JMG reader Chris sends us the latest from Robert Oscar Lopez:
“[Gays] have unleashed chaos. What they’ve done is they’ve incentivized home-wreckers. They’ve unleashed so much propaganda on the gay community about having kids. There are so many gay people who want kids. And the cheapest way to do it is to find someone who’s in a heterosexual marriage that’s on the rocks–where there are kids involved–seduce the person away from the opposite-sex partner, get them to come out of the closet, take them to family court and get custody of the kids. It’s disgusting, but people do that. Because it’s the cheapest way!”
At the 21:00 mark in the below podcast, Lopez continues to claim that gay bloggers are secretly colluding to destroy him. Leading this “fascist” anti-Lopez cabal, he claims, is Jeremy Hooper at Good As You with help from Andy Towle and yours truly. Damn us all to hell for quoting him verbatim!
RELATED: Lopez wants you to know that he is not “ex-gay.”
There’s something perverse about society’s inability to understand the basics of bisexuality. A bisexual–such as myself–is capable of coupling with either men or women. It doesn’t mean you sleep with both sexes simultaneously or have polyamorous domestic situations. I am faithful to my wife. But I have been with men and do not feel like running around claiming I was always straight, which wouldn’t be true, or claiming I have been “cured,” which I haven’t. I think people make choices in life and what you do with your body is one of those choices. People should decide to do things that make them happy. I am not ex-gay.
UPDATE: I’m reminded to mention that Lopez is the founder of the International Children’s Rights Institute. From their about page:
Whereas most institutes that deal with difficult issues surrounding children’s rights rely on social science or the natural sciences, at ICRI we employ historically-informed, humanities-based methodologies with a world view. We strive to articulate philosophically-grounded positions on what constitutes the “rights” of a child, and how those rights relate to, or differ from, other normative “rights”; such as human rights or civil rights. The ICRI acknowledges that children’s rights are not limitless, and that there are things to which children are not entitled, such as gender reassignment surgery or explicit sexual media.
PREVIOUSLY ON JMG: In September 2014 Lopez petitioned the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to stop gay marriage in Texas because he used to be a prostitute. In April 2014 Lopez filed an anti-gay amicus brief
in support of Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage. Last March 2014
Lopez declared that gay men are turning surrogate mothers into breeding slaves. In 2013, in addition to appearing on stage at an anti-gay Manif Pour
Tous rally in France that was supported by neo-Nazis, Lopez testified
against LGBT equality before several state legislatures and he
co-signed an anti-gay homocon brief to the Supreme Court in support of
DOMA. You really must read the Media Matters take on Lopez’ trilogy of gay erotica.
