Conservative Prof May Lose Tenure After LGBT Pressure

Professor Robert Oscar Lopez says the University of California, Northridge, wants to oust him from his tenured position teaching English literature.

Even if Lopez keeps his job, the Big Gay Hate Machine has won a victory. Even Lopez might trim his sails in the coming months and years. After all, who wants to go through something like that again. Moreover, the warning is strong to all other academics who might be tempted to stray from the liberal plantation. You do so at your own and your family’s peril.

 

Even if Lopez keeps his job, the Big Gay Hate Machine has won a victory. Even Lopez might trim his sails in the coming months and years. After all, who wants to go through something like that again. Moreover, the warning is strong to all other academics who might be tempted to stray from the liberal plantation. You do so at your own and your family’s peril.

Lopez became quite famous a few years ago after he “outed” himself as both bi-sexual and having been raised by lesbians. Writing in the academic online journal The Public Discourse three years ago, Lopez wrote his upbringing by two lesbians had been harmful to him and that he now opposed same-sex marriage. Despite appearing on a relatively small site, Lopez’s explosive essay has more than 9,000 Facebook shares.

Lopez was a marked man from that moment. Lopez became an even more outspoken opponent of gay marriage, gay adoption and gay surrogacy. He founded a movement for children’s rights, filed an amicus brief in favor of man-woman marriage with the Supreme Court, and published a book about attacks on him and his colleagues by the Big Gay Hate Machine.

He now charges that some of the groups after him, including the gay Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD and others, likely sent students into his classes to gin up charges against him so that he would be harassed into silence and eventually dismissed. Whether that’s true or not, at least one student did begin to monitor Lopez and she did begin filing charges against him sometime in 2014.

The charges against Lopez shifted almost constantly and to this day he has never been shown the formal complaint from the still-unidentified former student. His understanding of the charges against him have been from meetings with university administrators and taking notes.

Her first complaint centered around a conference called The Bonds that Matter that Lopez organized at the Reagan Library, a forty-minute drive from the UC-Northridge campus. The conference featured noted speakers on divorce, third party reproduction, and adoption.

She says she was coerced into attending, that she was never informed of what the subject matter of the conference would be, and that she was offended by some of what she heard that day. She said the conference should have come with a trigger warning that it might cause trauma to gays and lesbians. She also said she broke down “in tears, crying.”

She says speakers explained that “all women who use sperm banks are evil” and that “gay people cannot be good parents.” She also complained about a brochure produced by the Ruth Institute she picked up at the conference aimed at the “victims of the sexual revolution” including those who tried the gay life and now want out.
