Then to my surprise I read Massresistance's latest "update" on their site:
So now we know who the "concerned parents" in Acton is. Bay Windows outed Amy from Acton in an article published in November 2005 which was then repeated by Article 8 in a fundraising "update". And now Massresistance A.K.A. Brian and Amy are trying to censor the play in the town's high school only the town isn't having any of it.
Parents in Acton fighting back: Holding community forum Oct. 3 -- featuring national speakers -- to expose homosexual play "The Laramie Project" being presented at high school!
Many of you may be aware of the pro-homosexual play "The Laramie Project" that's being presented in colleges and even high schools across the country. It's an extremely offensive piece of propaganda that uses the murder of the gay college student Matthew Shepard to push acceptance of homosexuality and horribly demonize Christians and others who have moral issues with homosexual behavior. It is also an extremely violent and profane work, meant to be psychologically jarring, with little value beyond that.
When the Acton-Boxborough Regional High School administration decided to have students produce the play this November, concerned parents in the Acton-Boxborough school district requested MassResistance’s assistance in answering back. While school officials declined to halt the production of this R-rated play, (even after pleadings from parents with school officials) the School Committee did agree to allow an alternative viewpoint forum to be held in the school auditorium for the community. This play is being pushed in several schools in Massachusetts beyond, and we hope that this forum can be used to help concerned parents everywhere to combat the message of the play -- that traditional religious values are dangerous and hateful, that “seeds of hate” exist in every community, and that homosexuality should be accepted and celebrated.
Here's the coverage in last Sunday's Boston Globe of the upcoming forum:
This promises to be VERY informative. Confirmed speakers include: James Lafferty, who attended the Matthew Shepard trial in Laramie, Wyoming; Linda Harvey, researcher on homosexual programs in the public schools, Stephen Bennett, former homosexual, now married with two children; Dr. John Diggs, internist and international lecturer on sexually transmitted diseases.
THE PUBLIC IS INVITED
Acton-Boxborough Regional High School
Auditorium Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2007 7:30 pm
(Charter Rd, connecting Mass. Ave. & Hayward St.), just off intersection of Rts. 111 & 27 (Main St.).
An alternative forum is going to be held at the high school with the typical Massresistance/Article 8 cast of characters. Since this forum is going to held on public school property I certainly hope that none of the speakers will be using their time to promote their religious views, although I'm sure the ACLU will be watching.
Who else but Massresistance would spin a play about a man who was murdered by two anti-gay bigots into an attack making the "Conservative Christians" victims? The "Christians" who are depicted in the play are the Fred Phelps "God Hates Fags" group. It makes more sense when you recall that the Fred Phelps' group were in Lexington supporting Mad Dad David Parker. Birds of a feather... It also makes sense now that Amy was so concerned about Acton adopting the "No Place for Hate" program. All the pieces are falling into place.
