Since people posted in the comments sections that they were receiving rude and obnoxious email responses from Massresistance/Article 8, I posted a request for copies of their email responses. Below are just a few of the responses people received from a paranoid group that touts its moral character:
I wish I could give you the email from MassResistance but I belong to AOL and the emails are automatically gone after 30 days. All I have is the address which was MassResistance@hotmail.com.
I had wrote them about an article I had read on their web site that I knew was false and I made a point of stating that I was not gay but I supported gay rights. I asked them why they were going after the 1 to 5% of the population who are gay who practice anal sex (sodomy) and ignore the 30 to 40 % of heterosexuals who practice it. They came back with an email saying that I didn't have the "guts" to state my real name. This I thought was very strange because I had written what I thought was a thoughtful email stating my feelings. I went back to them with my name and their answer was a two word email:
Strange people. I have a cousin in Hudson, NH who forwarded their web site to me. He is also a heterosexual who absolutely hates Camenker and the woman. He is a mild mannered guy but has told me he has never in his life seen such hateful and dishonest people.
And here's another:

Thank you so much! Because of your complete ignorance and misunderstanding of the law I can marry when I am ready! Thank you and Brian both! You are not only amusing....you are one of the reasons I can marry! SO ironic!!!
"Isaacson said that by forcing a vote on a marriage amendment filed last year by state Reps. Emile Goguen (D-Fitchburg) and Phil Travis (D-Rehoboth), she is confident they can defeat Vote On Marriage’s amendment. Goguen and Travis’s amendment was originally filed at the request of the anti-gay group Article 8 Alliance. Because it was filed by lawmakers, rather than through an initiative petition like the VoteOnMarriage.org amendment, it requires a full majority of the legislature to pass; by contrast, the VoteOnMarriage.org amendment only needs 50 votes."
“Miss Contrada has very generously provided proponents of fairness with a wonderful strategy which, while the first time I have heard of it, I would consider entertaining if it means keeping that discriminatory amendment off the ballot,” said Barrios. “Thank you for being so Christian in helping me keep discrimination out of our state.”
