Robert Oscar Lopez insists 'same-sex parenting is Jim Crow,' continues to obliterate his own side's denials of animus

by Jeremy Hooper

This man is filing an amicus brief with the United States Supreme Court and is a darling of conservative press:

Sounds like you're problem is with adoption itself, Robert. And with reality, if we're being honest.


*In case you're wondering, here is what Garrett Epps actually said on NPR:

EPPS: You know, it is, I think, an argument about what is going to happen when, as a lot of people assume, the Supreme Court ratifies the cases that say that same-sex marriage must be recognized in the States. At that point, I think there's going to be a number of disputes that come up with various service providers going from pediatricians to daycares to veterinarians not wanting to serve same-sex families.

And there have been such cases elsewhere, and some of these are going to end up in court. So no, there are no cases right now, but that doesn't mean there aren't going to be any, and if you look at the language that's used by the proponents of this bill in the legislature, they're saying this is to protect the Christian baker, this is to protect the Christian businessman. There's not a great deal of secrecy about it.

Obviously Epps is not equating human kids with pets, and likely would never think anyone would be weird enough to think he is. He is simply—and accurately—saying that a veterinarian is a service provider who could theoretically say that he or she will only recognize heterosexual couples and their pets. Only in the odd mind of Mr. Lopez would such a mental image even arise, much less make its way into political discourse.
