Robert Oscar Lopez writes:
On March 24, 2013, as I stood with other speakers waiting to take the stage at Paris's "manif pour tous" against homosexual marriage, I saw tear gas sail through the air at a crowd of peaceful protesters.
Children, elderly people, and elected officials were hit by the gas. Christine Boutin, the president of a major political party, passed out. Some videos showing what happened are posted on my blog here. . . .
The images of a police force, commanded by a gay Socialist mayor (Bernard Delanoe), shooting tear gas at children was worse than the imagery of Lt. Pike pepper-spraying college students in Davis, and worse, I would say, than the Jim Crow police force using dogs and water hoses on black children during the famous protests led by Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. . . .
Having spent so many years in the gay community, I found myself falling into an emotional nadir as violence marred events, both in Brussels and Paris. In both cases, it was the side militating for gay parenting that used physical intimidation: a combination of riled street thugs and armed riot police, the deadly cocktail of "unofficial" and "official" violence that characterizes the dynamics of so many police states. . . .
"Whatever becomes of same-sex marriage in the United States," Lopez concludes, "the gay movement poses a much longer-term problem. Homosexuality is not a sexual orientation, but rather an ideology. The LGBT movement is not a community, but rather a political machine. . . . [I]t is the face of an ancient urge which must always be resisted: the lust for power and domination."
