NOM hero Robert Oscar López: 'Gay marriage is a done deal'

by Jeremy Hooper

Robert Oscar López has written numerous articles against LGBT rights, has testified against marriage bills before state legislatures, has spoken at "protect marriage" rallies, and earns regular mention on the National Organization For Marriage's various properties. He has also said some of the most vicious things imaginable about LGBT rights and gay parents in particular.

Still, even he knows that we on the side of equality have all but won the marriage debate. López begins his latest blog post with this line:

A reply to someone who wrote to me asking, "why not let gays marry and get the state out of marriage?" [English Manif]

Indeed, Bobby. That last-ditch attempt to demean gay parents everywhere was a clever conceit, I guess. But the Regnerus-ian push did not work. We won, and not in small part because of the sheer viciousness that everyone instantly recognized as motivating this cruel slamming of certain kinds of families.

In the post immediately preceding this one, López asks "whats's next [after the marriage debate]?" An apology would be a start (but I certainly don't expect it).
