    For his anti-gay, NOMzi-linked hate-mongering, Robert Oscar Lopez deserves to have dog shit hurled at him wherever he goes, To take just one phrase from his current rant – there is no evidence whatsoever that childhood sexual molestation is linked to the victim’s later sexual orientation in any way. Empirically we know that the majority of people sexually abused as children are heterosexuals as adults. Where are the gay-bashing Jesus freaks like Robert “dog shit” Lopez to claim that those child abuse victims turned out heterosexual because they were sexually abused as children?

    Lopez appears to be appealing to low-information bigots. He alleges that the only black people who support LGBT equality are President Obama and Jason Collins. Meanwhile in reality, the NAACP supports equality. Pastor Michael Bledsoe is among the many LGBT-rights supportive African-American leaders. The Congressional Black Caucus overwhelmingly supports LGBT equality. When musician Frank Ocean came out as gay, he met with support across the industry, including from African-Americans in the industry. Oprah and Whoppie Goldberg both support equality. Et cetera.

    There’s an app for that!

    When you spend all your time trying to find excuses for your feelings, and behavior, you will find one. So what if the core of his problems stemmed from his mother being a Lesbien? The alternative? Being raised in a shelter? That would entail another set of behavior, to which he’d dine an excuse.

    In terms of his heritage? There’s an app(excuse) for that.

    When I look back at my own life, I can invent an excuse for every reason I am who I am. But I make no excuses, because I’m too busy inventing myself in the best way I can despite how I was raised, and the circumstances that evolved during, and through it.

    In the end -well by no means the end, I embrace all the adversity, because I’m stronger, smatter, funnier, and happier th an I would be if I were to just look for excuses for the feelings I have.

    So to Robet Oscar Lopez, good luck with happiness. It’s not something you inherit, or acquire. It’s a constant effort, and there’s no age at which it’s achieved. It’s a work in progress, and there’s no app for that.

    Coretta Scott King was a strong, steady, passionate advocate for gay rights. You should be ashamed of yourself Oscar.
