When asked about Camenker’s claims Ross told Bay Windows, “I don’t know anything about his organization,” and he declined to comment further, directing Bay Windows to speak to his son. Councilor Ross said he had spoken with his father about Camenker’s claims and that his father “was very upset that someone was hijacking, was misappropriating his good name to get behind something he does not agree with.”
Councilor Ross added that his father told him he was not a member of MassResistance, but he said it was possible his father may have had a conversation with Camenker and that his words were distorted. “He was sexually molested [by Nazi guards]. So I think he could easily be preyed upon by a special interest group and has been in the past,” said Ross. In 2000, the anti-gay newspaper Massachusetts News published an interview with the elder Ross about being abused in the concentration camps, and the story claimed that Ross said that the Nazis’s opposition to homosexuality was a pretense to round up other groups like Catholic priests and that about 20 percent of the Nazi concentration camp guards were homosexual.After the article was published, Councilor Ross wrote a letter to Bay Windows accusing Massachusetts News of exploiting his father and of twisting his words. He said Camenker’s claims at the hearing were more of the same.
“Needless to say, the issue [of my father’s sexual abuse] is extremely complex, who he is is extremely complex, and for someone to prey upon him and get him to say something, perhaps in confidence, about a very difficult time in his life and to misappropriate that … is something that not only goes against who my father is and what he stands for but also borders on libel,” said Ross.
What a shame! Well, Brian Camenker did say on the Daily Show that if he had the time he could "find some ways of connecting the dots to gay marriage" on air quality, homelessness and crime rates so I'm sure the Holocaust is just a drop in the bucket!
I also want to paraphrase Ms. Massresistance: SHUT UP ALREADY to Amy (Mann) Contrada about the same sex marriages that have been taking place legally since May 17, 2004. You, Brian Camenker & John Hoskins are the about the only people in the state who are unable to grasp reality. No amount of posting "It's still not legal" or putting marriage in ""(quotes) is going to change that.
