California Professor Let Down by ERLC
Janet Mefferd taped a radio interview over the weekend with Dr. Robert Oscar Lopez about some of his concerns regarding the ERLC.
Dr. Lopez is a Southern Baptist who was eventually forced out of his job at California State University-Northridge after years of threats and harassment induced by homosexual activists, including the Human Rights Campaign. He is now a professor of humanities at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth. Dr. Lopez recounted in this article in The Federalist how the Human Rights Campaign was particularly targeting him in October 2014, after it released its "The Export of Hate" report, which was used to target and harass a number of Christian and pro-family leaders (http://thefederalist.com/2014/10/27/what-its-like-to-face-the-lgbt-inquisition/).
Dr. Lopez says he was hurt by the fact that during the same month he was coming under severe fire from a Human Rights Campaign effort, the ERLC held its conference, "The Gospel, Homosexuality, and the Future of Marriage,” and ERLC leaders met behind closed doors at that time with LGBT activists that included members of the Human Rights Campaign.
The ERLC was contacted but did not respond.
School Prayer Room Causes Controversy
A Texas high school's on-site prayer room is stirring controversy. Liberty High School in Frisco established the room in 2009, but the Texas AG is concerned the room may be off-limits to students of other religious denominations.
