Petition: Re-instatement of Professor Robert Oscar Lopez and a Public Apology

Dec 17, 2019 by

from CitizenGo:

We the undersigned wish to protest against the unjust and unethical treatment of Professor Robert Oscar Lopez who was abruptly removed from his teaching job at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Texas USA without cause.

We demand his re-instatement, with a public apology.

The pretexts given for his sudden dismissal were not genuine and can be shown to be false.

The treatment handed out to Professor Lopez is inconsistent with the Christian principles SWBTS is supposed to uphold, and also inconsistent with academic and intellectual freedom. To dismiss him because of his Christian beliefs is also a violation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights article 18 “Image result for Universal Declaration of Human Rights religious belief. Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.”

Prof. Lopez is a COG, and former homosexual now married with children and critical of same-sex marriage and parenting. He has written from his own personal experience about the prevalence of molestation of minors in the LGBT community. He was liked and respected by his students but was fired from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, at the behest of the ERLC who didn’t like his conservative views on LGBTQ issues even though they are Christian. Professor Lopez was warned that he should not speak nor publish about the possibility for homosexuals to change their orientation, even though this is his own personal experience.
