Satan Phelps is Coming to Town

It seems that David Parker supporter Fred Phelps of the infamous Westboro Baptist Church is coming to town...again. From Take Mass Action:
Fred Phelps' clan is coming to Boston! The "God Hates Fags" Westboro Baptist Church is coming to picket the Laramie Project at the Boston Center for the Arts. Fred Phelps and his group travel all across the United States spreading their message of hate. When the group comes to Boston, however, they will be helping to drive equality across America.

This hate group, like MassResistance, constantly publish press releases about their antics. However, they have been known to say they are going to be elsewhere and never show up. Communities tend to band together when this extreme group comes around. I think the last time they showed up was to support David Parker.

Anyhow, this time Driving for Equality is planning something. Head over to Chris's website to get more information.

The Absolutely True Adventures of Evil Tina

Hi Folks. I started a new cartoon which you can see below. Look for updates on Evil Tina's adventures at eviltina.net. If you see Evil Tina and her dog "AMANN" drop me an email so I can keep Evil Tina up to date.

More Evidence for the Southern Poverty Law Center

Take notice Southern Poverty Law Center, MassResistance is continuing it's vilification of GLBT people. (MassResistance was named a hate group by the SPLC in March of 2008 for their activities in 2007 and didn't like it at all.) In two of its latest posts they have gone after the co-founder of KnowThyNeighbor and a transgender individual simply because one is gay and the other is transgender.

In the rant against Tom Lang, co-founder of KnowThyNeighbor, they don't think it's fair that two men can own a beautiful home. According to their logic, just because someone has money they aren't allowed to participate in the democratic process:
The palace has been a base for harassing opponents of "homosexual marriage". One of its owners, Tom Lang, is the infamous cyber-bully behind the "KnowThyNeighbor" web site, which published the names of anyone who signed the pro-marriage referendum petition in Massachusetts a few years back.

Uh, Ms. MassResistance, the law allows anyone to see who signs public petitions. You would think that a person who signs a petition to take away someone's civil rights would be proud of their activism. I mean look at all those people you got to sign the repeal of the 1913 law. Oh, wait a minute, you didn't get enough signatures from the thousands of people who supposedly support you. Nice job!

MassResistance even has the nerve to post a section of the Massachusetts law about intimidation of constitutional rights when all they ever do is try and intimidate people in the Commonwealth about marriage and education. This post clearly exposes the jealousy they have over Lange and his husband's home.

In their second post they go after Lorelei Erisis, someone who was protesting the recent anti-gay Prop 8 in California and they specifically go after her because she is transgender:
Remember that President-elect Obama has promised equal rights for the whole GLBT community -- "T" meaning transgenders or transsexuals. ("Gender identity" is the code language used for trannies.) Clearly, there is no bottom to this pit of confusion, sadness, and perversion into which these people have fallen. Yet our leftist political leaders will encourage even more troubled people to fall in.
That's right haters, equal means equal whether you are Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual or Transgender. Maybe you should crawl back under that rock for the next eight years. Your divisional politics of "Us against Them" is not going to work in United States of America anymore. The people have spoken.

Engage With Grace

People need to talk with loved ones about their future care. You have a great opportunity tomorrow when you gather with friends and family to talk about those concerns that you may never have discussed before. When my Mom was in the hospital after a major stroke, luckily, we knew how she wanted to be cared for but many families are not so lucky and sometimes the hospitals overrule them. Please take a look at the message below:
We make choices throughout our lives - where we want to live, what types of activities will fill our days, with whom we spend our time. These choices are often a balance between our desires and our means, but at the end of the day, they are decisions made with intent. But when it comes to how we want to be treated at the end our lives, often we don't express our intent or tell our loved ones about it.

This has real consequences. 73% of Americans would prefer to die at home, but up to 50% die in hospital. More than 80% of Californians say their loved ones "know exactly" or have a "good idea" of what their wishes would be if they were in a persistent coma, but only 50% say they've talked to them about their preferences. But our end of life experiences are about a lot more than statistics. They're about all of us.

So the first thing we need to do is start talking. Engage With Grace: The One Slide Project was designed with one simple goal: to help get the conversation about end of life experience started. The idea is simple: Create a tool to help get people talking. One Slide, with just five questions on it. Five questions designed to help get us talking with each other, with our loved ones, about our preferences.

And we're asking people to share this One Slide - wherever and whenever they can.at a presentation, at dinner, at their book club. Just One Slide, just five questions. Lets start a global discussion that, until now, most of us haven't had.

Here is what we are asking you: Download The One Slide and share it at any opportunity - with colleagues, family, friends. Think of the slide as currency and donate just two minutes whenever you can. Commit to being able to answer these five questions about end of life experience for yourself, and for your loved ones. Then commit to helping others do the same. Get this conversation started.

Let's start a viral movement driven by the change we as individuals can effect...and the incredibly positive impact we could have collectively. Help ensure that all of us - and the people we care for - can end our lives in the same purposeful way we live them. Just One Slide, just one goal. Think of the enormous difference we can make together.

Sucking on the MassResistance Donor's Teet

I've been blogging for awhile now about how most of the money collected by MassResistance goes into Brian Camenker's pockets. This was confirmed this week by Ethan Jacobs of BayWindows:
Camenker’s anti-LGBT non-profit group Parents Education Foundation (the public education branch of MassResistance) paid Camenker $49,200 in 2007 for his role as president of the organization. What’s even more surprising is that over that same year the group only took in $56,226 in donations and other sources of revenue. About 88 percent of all the money coming into Parents Education Foundation went right into Camenker’s wallet.

Surprisingly, Ethan notes that MFI's leader, Kris Mineau, who works a 40 hour week only makes about $41,000 for his anti-gay work yet Brian only clocks in 25 hours a week. Who do you think OK's his salary because on the Mass. Secretary of State's website Brian is not only the President but the treasurer too.

5 years Ago Today

It was 5 years ago today when I read the decision at the Court house. Having never read one before I didn't know where to look, but my husband on the phone telling me to flip the page, flip the page and there is was. Tears welled up in my eyes when I read it. Enjoy:
Marriage is a vital social institution. The exclusive commitment of two individuals to each other nurtures love and mutual support; it brings stability to our society. For those who choose to marry, and for their children, marriage provides an abundance of legal, financial, and social benefits. In return it imposes weighty legal, financial, and social obligations. The question before us is whether, consistent with the Massachusetts Constitution, the Commonwealth may deny the protections, benefits, and obligations conferred by civil marriage to two individuals of the same sex who wish to marry. We conclude that it may not. The Massachusetts Constitution affirms the dignity and equality of all individuals. It forbids the creation of second-class citizens.
And the only thing that has changed is that families are stronger and more protected.

MFI's Future of Marriage Forum

Today I attended the “Future of Marriage: Five Years After Goodridge” at the Suffolk University Law School. The forum was put on by the Massachusetts Family Institute and included Maggie Gallagher, Jeff Jacoby, Phil Moran and David Parker. Kris Mineau of MFI was supposed to be the moderator but essentially just played Emcee because all of the panel just gave speeches.

I arrived a few minutes before the start of the event. Have you ever been to a wake? If so you know what the atmosphere was like.

Just to remind you, the topic was the “Future of Marriage”.

First up was Maggie Gallagher who talked for about a half hour immediately asking the crowd to identify whether they were for or against gay marriage. Dividing the crowd is always a good ice breaker. All that stuck out from her talk was that she doesn’t like being called a bigot. That seems to be the biggest concern from her side, they don’t like to be called haters even though they want to take away people’s rights. She doesn’t believe it is bigotry to recognize that there is a special unique relationship between men and women and we should give them special rights. She says she has a dim view of the U.S. if marriage is redefined.

Jeff Jacoby was up next and to be honest, he was a bore. He blames Frank Rich of the NY Times for starting the “haters and zealots” language when Frank equated San Francisco’s marriages in 2004 to the racial discrimination in the south at the lunch counters. He doesn’t believe it’s a civil right even though several civil rights leaders who marched in the south do.

Then some lawyer who is the President of the Pro-Life Legal Defense Fund goes up and just reads from the Goodridge decision. He, like MassResistance, believes that marriage equality is not legal in Massachusetts and blames Mitt Romney for issuing the marriage licenses.

Finally, David “Mad Dad” Parker gets his chance. He blames marriage equality for his arrest, again, he never mentions that he chose to be arrested after being told if he didn’t leave he would get arrested. He believes that homosexuals want to indoctrinate children with their books and lessons. Side note to David: I went to elementary school and read all those lovely heterosexual stories, Cinderella, Snow White, etc… and I’m still gay.

In all, they didn’t talk about the future of marriage at all. They all were just living in the past and didn’t want to be called bigots.

Update: Massmarrier over at Marry in Massachusetts was also there at the forum. Check out his version of the event.

MassResistance: Psychic HQ's?

Well, Brian is at it again, he's reading the minds of gay people. Get this from their latest email update:

3. Commentary: The real reason they're so enraged.

On the surface, it would seem strange that the homosexual movement is so enraged at the passing of Proposition 8. California already had a domestic partnership statute that gave same-sex couples all of the significant rights and obligations traditionally associated with the institution of marriage. Proposition 8 doesn't change that. Prop 8 only deals with the word "marriage". It simply says, "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."

Like the recent weak Massachusetts marriage amendment, it allows any kind of exact copy of marriage. So they already have everything they want.But they don't really have what they want. They're not that interested in technical rights.

They want acceptance. They want acceptance of homosexuality to be forced on a society that would never accept it without coercion. That's why the word "marriage" is much more important to them than the rights and obligations of marriage.

At a very visceral, emotional level they want all of society's institutions -- the schools, government, business, media, etc. -- to recognize homosexual behavior as a natural equivalent to heterosexuality. That's why the word "equal" is a part of so many of their activities and organizations.

But humanity being what it is, over all these thousands of years, the radicals know that what they want won't ever happen on its own. Ultimately, a human court or legislature can't repeal the laws of nature. That's a big problem for them.


Oh Brian, Brian, where DO you get your ideas? We could care less if you accept us. We're here, we're queer and we're not going to go away no matter how many times you change the name of your organizations. We pay taxes, just like you and we should be treated, just like you.

Oh, and the biggest problem with your "argument" against equal rights for gays and lesbians...homosexuality IS natural, check out the animal kingdom Brian. Remember that book about the Penguins? Yeah, it's not fiction.

She's Ba-ck! Again.

Ms. MassResistance, like a vampire resurrected from the dead, is back again after almost 6 months in hiding. She first appeared yesterday with some nonsense about fascists then another post today about "Satanic Trannies". She also hasn't stopped the fear mongering:
Their banner in Wikipedia says, "These faggots kill fascists." The group is gearing up all over the country, no doubt soon joining the fray in Massachusetts.

"They'll be here soon in Massachusetts". Hmm...Ms. MassResistance, if Marriage Equality is the root of all evil, why didn't these "rogue" groups start here? I mean, according to your logic, anything you deem evil should all start in Massachusetts since same sex couples can marry here (and now Connecticut). Brian Camenker even confirmed this in his interview on the Daily Show where he claimed to be able to link gay marriage to everything.

I had never heard of these "Satanic Trannies", so a big thank you goes out to MassResistance for telling us all about them. I find it strange though, MassResistance is equating these people, and I don't know much about them, with GLBT people in Mass, yet when MassResistance is equated with their counter parts, groups like Fred Phelps' Westboro Baptist Church and Neo-Nazi's, groups that target and protest all things gay, they go berserk. Maybe they're afraid these "Satanic Trannies" will be going after them?

Is MassResistance Taking Credit for National Anti-Gay Marriage Amendments Passing?

Read this from the MassResistance Website:
We also know that the MassResistance article "What same-sex 'marriage' has done to Massachusetts," was used extensively in California and Florida (and somewhat in Arizona), emailed, re-posted on websites, and sent as op-eds to newspapers. We were also interviewed on radio shows in Florida and California about that article.

I guess the people who might have read MassResistance's garbage didn't know that it was all BullS**t.

One of their ridiculous bullets in that article was that:
It’s become commonplace in Massachusetts schools for teachers to prominently display photos of their same-sex “spouses” and occasionally bring them to school
functions.
OOH, that's so radical, having pictures of a loved one or this:
All insurance in Massachusetts must now recognize same-sex “married” couples in their coverage. This includes auto insurance, health insurance, life insurance, etc.

Those silly gays, they want to protect their families by providing for them now and if something happens to them, they're immoral!

Brian Camenker is not successful with his gay hating tactics in Massachusetts and is looking for a bigger stage to beg money from since it appears that MassResistance pays his salary. MassResistance has been successful in uniting unlikely parties against their silly repeal of the racist 1913 law, it united both gay and other anti-gay organizations against them, now that's something to talk about.

MassResistance, in every posting on their website and every press release they put out, ensures that they will once again be listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center for years to come. Congratulations Brian!

We ARE the United States of America



Hello, Chicago.


If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.


It's the answer told by lines that stretched around schools and churches in numbers this nation has never seen, by people who waited three hours and four hours, many for the first time in their lives, because they believed that this time must be different, that their voices could be that difference.


It's the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled. Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of red states and blue states.


We are, and always will be, the United States of America.

I'm Still Waiting for Their Post about Their Stripper Employee too.

Well, I wrote too soon. Yesterday I blogged about MassResistance failure at even getting one half of the signatures needed to repeal the racist anti-gay 1913 law. I even mentioned how they pulled all the information about the drive from their website, then lo and behold they put up a BS story about how they are now stronger than ever:

Referendum petition drive comes up short. Would have forced state-wide vote on
Legislature's repeal of "1913" law.

This was a fight about principle -against overwhelming opposition and suppression from all sides. One result: MassResistance now stronger.


If you read between the lines it means that Brian needs more money to run the HUGE organization that MassResistance has become so you better contribute because his bills won't be paid by wishing.


Of course, the do a lot of blaming and they blame the gays, again:
Homosexual activists terrorized our petition gatherers across the state. They would come up to them and scream horrible things, and then call the police (or store managers) with phony complaints and charges. It happened constantly. Homosexual websites sometimes tracked our signature-gathering activities. And they even tried to intimidate the MassResistance office by sending us a stream of obscene emails.
They make all these claims but have no facts to back them up. I would love to know which homosexual websites tracked them. With the exception of one article in BayWindows about the anti-gays collecting signatures at the Burlington mall, they got no publicity good or bad.



Yes, they point a lot of fingers except to recognize the three fingers that are pointing back at them.

Massachusetts is finally becoming aware of the hate group that dwells within its borders and proudly taking its place in history. Fortunately, Brian Camenker is also taking his place in history. Unfortunately for Brian, history will not be complimentary to him.

MassResistance's SUCCESS!!!

at failing to get enough signatures to put the racist 1913 law on the ballot. YES!

I didn't need an email from Brian to already know this since it's been evident ever since they embarked on this anti-gay endeavor back in August.

But BayWindows has the story:


The effort by the anti-gay group MassResistance to reinstate the 1913 law has failed. The group had spent the past two months collecting signatures to place a referendum on the 2010 ballot to reinstate the law, which the legislature and Gov. Deval Patrick repealed in July, but by the Oct. 29 deadline for gathering signatures MassResistance had only managed to collect one-third of the total needed.
As BayWindows notes, MassResistance has removed all traces of this failed petition drive from their website, but not here. MassResistance Watch has all the information you need and I have all their hate mails detailing their progress:


It's impossible to get an exact count since people and signature sheets are scattered across the state.

I wonder what all those "$500.00" donors are thinking at this moment? "I gave money for what!?!" I'm guessing Brian's going to have to find a real job now unless he pocketed all the cash he claimed he raised for the petition which failed.

Finally, in the words of Brian Camenker's MassResistance:


What this Referendum means

This is a big deal. Besides eventually stopping a horrible social experiment from being forced across the country, this sends some very strong messages...

And as we said, the rest of the Boston media isn't far behind. They really don't get it. They're going to be very disappointed when we get done . . .

MassResistance Defends Alleged Stripping Photographer

Gosh, I go away for a few days and it seems that the anti-gay forces over at MassResistance go berserk! Thanks to all those alert readers to forwarded me the links:


ANDOVER — A Wakefield man claimed he was standing outside a local school snapping photos of students for a documentary, but after a foot chase through backyards while stripping his clothing, police aren't buying his story.



Yes kids, it seems this guy was working for MassResistance, doing what Brian Camenker usually does himself, snapping pictures of assuming kids against their will only this guy, Michael Olivio, decided to strip away his clothing in the process. Brian was mentioned in the article though:


But Michael Olivio's employer has come forward to back up his story. Olivio, 48, works for the anti-gay rights group MassResistance.org. Brian Camenker (pictured at right), head of the group, said Olivio mistakenly went to West Middle School Tuesday to snap pictures instead of the high school.

Camenker said Olivio was to get pictures of the high school because the state Commission on Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual and Transgendered Youth held a meeting there Monday night.

"I figured I would do a write-up for the Web site and I wanted a picture of the high school," Camenker said.


Hmm...this seemed to happen last week and yet Brian still hasn't done a write-up for the website. And then there's the money quote at the end of the story:
Camenker said he attended Olivio's arraignment in Lawrence District Court and that they were considering legal action against the police. Olivio was charged with disorderly conduct.

Why is it that every time Brian Camenker gets involved there's the threat of lawsuits and conspiracy theories. It's always THEM, the police, legislators, Governors, bloggers, homosexual activists... But MassResistance staffers keep photographing children and now can add stripping to their successes!

Calendar Challenged MassResistance

Well, Brian must read this blog because he finally changed his website. For a couple of days it looked like this:

Yes, Brian is still calendar challenged and can't seem to get his days of the week together (It makes sense when you realize he's living in some bizarro year, 1920's anyone?) Stay tuned because I will be posting about his new report "What Same-sex "marriage" has done to Massachusetts". Get out your popcorn and don't drink while you read it, because your beverage of choice just might come out your nose as you're laughing!

Rewriting History

Thanks to an astute observer, Brian Camenker, the President of that nationally identified hate group MassResistance, has removed all mention of their signature drive to repeal the repeal of the 1913 law. Additionally, they didn't replace it with any information or update on where they stand in the process.

It appears that they are in the process of confirming the validity of the signatures with the individual town halls across the state then they submit the valid signatures to the Secretary of State's office. The Sec. of State's office could not confirm the time frame that MassResistance has to get the signatures to them.

It will be interesting to see if MassResistance gets these signatures when the Mass Family Institute and the Massachusetts Catholic Church were both against this hateful venture. I guess Brian is thinking of this as job security since if he gets the signatures he will be able to beg people for more money to fund the campaign which will no doubt pay his salary (he is not a volunteer, both him and Amy were paid by the proceeds raised from MassResistance and the Parent's Rights Coalition).

Catholic Church Smackdown!

Boy, Brian Camenker is not having a good week. David Parker loses his appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, the CT Supreme Court says the state has to allow gay couples to marry and the Boston Diocese of the Catholic Church gives Brian a big ole be-otch slap.

Apparently, the Cardinal signed one of their petitions to repeal the repeal of the 1913 law and Brian took this to mean that the whole Catholic Church would stand beside him in his anti-gay quest. Uh...not so fast. Brian, er, MassResistance, sent a letter to every Catholic Church in Massachusetts asking for their participation in his endeavor, however, the Cardinal immediately sent out an email slapping down MassResistance:


On Monday, October 6, a group of Catholic activists at MassResistance planned the big Columbus Day weekend push to get signatures in churches. They prepared a mailing of petitions and instructions to all 680 churches in the state. The activists wrote a letter about the Cardinal signing the petition, signed by Brian Camenker, which they included. It was mailed on Tuesday.


On Wednesday, October 8, Brian Camenker received a phone call from Ed Saunders, director of the Massachusetts Catholic Conference (MCC). Saunders ordered us to "cease and desist" any efforts to communicate with parishes (an order which, of course, has no legal standing). He said that the Archdiocese had just sent out an email to all the churches in the state (see below) instructing them not to participate in the petition effort.


Saunders said that the letter by Catholic activists was "disrespectful" (you can judge for yourself). He said that the Cardinal signed the petition "in a moment of weakness" and that he did it "privately" - even though he signed it at a public event in front of several people.


So what does Brian do? Does he respect the decision of the Cardinal? No, he tells his lemmings "maybe he should hear from you!" hmm..sounds like a little intimidation to me, what do you think? Oh, and of course, as always, Brian comes up with conspiracy theory:

What's really going on? Several insiders have quietly indicated that the Church leadership now wants to stay away from the homosexual issue, for various reasons. If that's the case, they're doing everyone a disservice. It's not going away.

Where does Brian get his information?

CT Supreme Court Rules on Equal Marriage

The CT Supreme Court ruled today:

Hartford (WTNH/AP) -- The Connecticut Supreme Court has ruled that a ban on same-sex marriage in Connecticut is unconstitutional.

"The guarantee of equal protection under the law, and our obligation to uphold that command, forbids us from doing so," the high court said in making its decision. "In accordance with these state constitutional requirements, same sex couples cannot be denied the freedom to marry."

U.S. Supreme Court DENIES David Parker's Lawsuit

For more in depth information see MassMarrier's post.

The Supreme Court of the U.S. denied David Parker's lawsuit without comment. No comment from MassResistance yet but Brian did talk about it in the past:

Can a case like this eventually be won?

It's happened before and it can happen again. Remembering the famous St. Patrick's Boston Parade case in the mid 1990's, Parker said that he is not at all discouraged. In that case, known as the Hurley case, an openly homosexual group wanted to march in the South Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade, but the organizers refused to allow them. With the help of the liberal legal establishment the group sued -- and won -- claiming that the parade was a "public accommodation" and may not discriminate. Famed pro-family attorney Chester Darling, arguing the case pro-bono for the parade organizers, kept appealing the case and lost on the local, state, and federal level 17 times. Finally, the US Supreme Court heard the case and eventually ruled 9-0 in favor of the parade organizers -- that the parade's freedom of speech trumps political correctness!

Although the lawsuit so far has cost the Parkers an enormous amount of money, effectively draining their savings, they believe strongly that it's important that they stand firm on this issue. They are amazing people. Everyone needs to support them


But they lost. What is Brian going to say about the Supreme Court now?

Happy October

Wow, I can't believe it's been over a month since I last posted. So many things have been going on since the last time I wrote. We've been helping people move, attending conferences (in Texas during Hurricane Ike!) and our regular day to day activities. With all that homosexual activist stuff we're always getting accused of doing like bringing down the economy and lowering the moral of America, it's been a busy month.

On the flip side, MassResistance hasn't been all that active either. Ms. MassResistance hasn't posted since June and Brian occassionally posts a line or two on the main website, but overall they haven't been up to too much lately except ensuring that they'll be on the Southern Poverty Law Center's Hate Group list next year.

Yes my friends, while Brian Camenker hasn't been updating his website, he still have been sending out his hate mails to his minions begging for dollars:


But we are fighting back. If we can collect approximately 40,000 signatures on the Referendum Petition by October 15, this will go on the ballot. The people will get to vote. But there are about two weeks left. If we don't get the signatures, it's all over.

At this point, we're getting there, but we've got a ways to go. Our guess is that we're behind schedule but we hope to still make it. It's impossible to get an exact count since people and signature sheets are scattered across the state.

snip

What YOU must do . . .We really need everyone's help right now.

* If you live in Massachusetts: Everyone please sign the petition. This is really important - if you can't go out there and help collect, every person at least needs to sign it, (and get at least one or two others). If you can't download it, contact us and we'll mail you a copy.

* If you live outside of Massachusetts: Any donation will help. We are depending on people and groups across America to help us make this happen. You can donate here.
We still have some big mailings we need to pay for (see #4 below).We're going to charge right to the finish line! With everyone's help we will make it!

and in the bottom section of their email they talk about their fundraising challege (my comments are in red):


4. Fundraising update . . . Our $500 matching donation challenge!

We are trying to raise money for a huge mailing to signers of the Marriage Petition - to send a petition form to each household that signed it.

This is important! We've got the mailing set up and it's ready to go. But we still need to raise several thousand dollars to get the presses started. And time is running short.

The $500 challenge

Earlier this month, Mark P. (this guy is so proud to support MassResistance that he doesn't even give his last name) started it off with an offer to donate $500 if others match it with their own $500 donations. (is this like "if you show me yours I'll show you mine?") He wanted to see how many of these matching $500 donations we can get in two weeks. (To put this in perspective, the homosexual lobby raised $250,000 to get the 1913 law repealed.)Since then we've $500 donations from: Matthew S., Clarence H., Marjorie F., Albert L., Sally N., and the Life Action League of Mass. And Jim T. donated $1000! (another group of proud MassResistance supports with no last names)

Will YOU join them? Will you invest $500 or more? Is our work worthwhile for you to invest in? NO Our efforts depend o n you!

In typical MassResistance fashion, they didn't look into the future. If they get these signatures, thousands of couples will still be getting married from all over this country until this gets to the ballot. At that point, two years from now, people in this state will see that Marriage Equality is a benefit to the people of the Commonwealth and vote it down. Meanwhile, Sally N & Jim T will be hounded endlessly by MassResistance to give more money for the ballot initiative.

I can't wait for the television ads exposing MassResistance as a hate group along with the KKK and Fred Phelps. You know it's going to happen.

MassResistance Stands Alone In Hatred

Well, MassResistance is upset. The hate group isn't getting the help it expected (from their email updates):


1. Two major Massachusetts pro-family groups announce they will NOT help gather signatures to challenge Legislature's repeal of "1913 Law" -- exporting "gay marriage" across America!


The news has shocked and upset the Massachusetts pro-family movement. As activists across Massachusetts get ready to fight back against the Legislature's outrageous repeal of the "1913 Law" -- and as people across America watch in anticipation - two major Massachusetts pro-family groups publicly announced that they won't help. Both groups had been major forces in the signature drive for the recent Marriage Amendment. But this time they're backing off.


Last week the Massachusetts Family Institute and Catholic Citizenship both published press releases stating that they "will not participate" in the referendum effort.


Uh, Brian, do you think they don't want to be associated with a noted Hate Group?

If that's not enough the delusional few over at MR actually compare themselves with Samuel Adams, George Washington, John Hancock and Martin Luther King:

Imagine if Samuel Adams, Hancock, Washington and the other patriots announced that they wanted to try a "positive" approach instead of fighting a war against Britain. Where would we be now? Suppose that Martin Luther King, who lived in Atlanta, refused to join the fight in Birmingham because it would "have a greater impact outside the state than at home". (Or maybe he might have done an "education" campaign instead of going in the streets and protesting!)

Psst.. Brian, those patriots, and believe me, you are not one, were fighting for equal rights, not trying to take away rights. You should equating yourself to people like Davis, George Wallace, David Duke and Fred Phelps since they are most like you.

The AG's office also just authorized the ballot question:

In her ruling, Coakley said the question's supporters, MassResistance, had met the necessary technical requirement for filing a ballot question. The group must now gather 33,000 signatures by the end of October to appear on the November 2010 ballot.

Coakley differentiated between her official duties and any personal feeling she may have on the issue.

"Our decision that this referendum meets the constitutional requirements as to subject matter does not mean that it has our support, but simply that the constitutional requirements are met for the proponents of the referendum to obtain further signatures," Coakley said in a statement.


Now it will be interesting if MassResistance gets the 40,000 signatures it says it needs to put this on the ballot in 2010. They are desperately looking for money to do this and surely not getting help from within the State. Who will actually sign this mean petition?

More on MassResistance's Petition to Uphold the Racist 1913 Law

Here's the scoop on their petition, with information they didn't reveal on their website:

What this Referendum means

Before doing this, we polled 600 activists about it. Approximately 100 responded. Of those, 94% said that we should do it, and they'd help collect signatures! There's a lot of excitement.

By my count, 600 activists is only 1.4% of the signatures required for their petition, but wait only 94 of them said MassResistance should do it (hmm...how many of these actually live in Massachusetts?) so that 94 makes up only 0.23% of the signatures they need. I guess to them less than 1% is excitement.

Then they list the 10 original signers:

Brian Camenker

Dale C. Gunn

Ebba J. Holland

Caroline M. Kneeland

Robert G. O'Brien

John O'Gorman

David Thomas Parker

Tonia S. Parker

Edward J. Sharib

Robert Montgomery Thomas


You can probably recognize 3 right off the the bat.

The remainder of the email begs for money: We REALLY need financial help! Invest in these efforts!

At the end is the money shot:

Other Mass. pro-family groups getting on board?

Right now, it's a mixed bag. The Catholic Action League (C.J. Doyle) immediately pledged their support. Strangely, the Massachusetts Family Institute and the Massachusetts Catholic Conference have both indicated that they will not get involved with this (though we have not had an "official" answer from them). We haven't yet contacted Massachusetts Citizens for Life or Operation Rescue, but we're confident they'll be involved.

Of course, we're not hopeful that the Massachusetts Republican Party will want to help, since the Republican House and Senate leaders both voted with the homosexual lobby - for the repeal!


Well, it looks like C.J. Doyle and his staff of 1 is on board, but the Catholic Church in Massachusetts is taking a pass. Oh, and Brian, strangely enough, we not surprised at all. Very few people want to collaborate with a nationally recognized hate group right here in Massachusetts. It sounds like no one wants to help you with this!

The Wait Is Over

After promising last Friday to post something by Sunday night and not doing anything until Tuesday, MassResistance has finally posted their story about their petition to repeal the repeal of the racist 1913 marriage law:
We are fighting back! On Wednesday, August 13, MassResistance officially filed paperwork for a Referendum Petition - including the ten "original signers" - to force the Legislature's cowardly repeal of the "1913 Law" to be voted on by the people.

I still don't get why they always say "cowardly repeal" when the Senate voted unanimously and the House took a roll call vote, does Brian Camenker know what cowardly means?

The rest of the rant is essentially just sour grapes. They're pissed because the Boston newspapers didn't give them the glory they expected AND that the newspapers hailed the legislators who voted to repeal the racist 1913 law. They also keep taking credit for the legislature voting it as a special act which makes the repeal go into effect immediately. (See their successes, they take credit for practically everything including the sun rising everyday)

Then of course there's this:
What this Referendum means
This is a big deal. Besides eventually stopping a horrible social experiment from being forced across the country, this sends some very strong messages

Oh yeah, because getting the legislature to vote down the marriage amendment, when it only needed 25% of the legislature wasn't a big deal. Oh, and for the record, no legislator even wants to be associated with MassResistance, no one will sign on to any of the bills they keep submitting.

I'll leave you with MassResistance's last words:
And as we said, the rest of the Boston media isn't far behind. They really don't get it. They're going to be very disappointed when we get done . . .

I See You Shiver with Antici...pation

Ok, MassResistance updated it's website on Friday with just a headline:
MassResistance files papers with MA Secretary of State to force statewide vote on Legislature's repeal of "1913 Law"

Pro-family activists to collect required 33,297 signatures by October deadline.

Watch for our FULL REPORT to be posted Sunday evening at 6:00 pm. And get involved!
Sunday came and went and then we were treated to this:




Of course, Monday morning came and went too. It's now 4:30 PM, not morning and still nothing.

Who do you think are the "pro-family activists" that will be collecting the signatures?

Will the Mass Institute Against Gays finally collaborate with the nationally recognized Hate group know as MassResistance?
Stay tuned, all this and more, same Bat Time, same Bat Channel

August Obviously IS a Slow News Month

It's August, the Olympics are going on and the presidential conventions are coming up. Even the newscasters on TV are taking vacations. Obviously, no one is in the news rooms, hence the "article" by MassResistance about their petition to repeal the repeal of a racist law.


Make note of where you read the article and contact that news organization. Tell them the truth about MassResistance. Tell them how obsessed they are with gay people. Explain to them how MassResistance was identified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center along with Fred Phelps' "God Hates Fags" group.


Remind them of the their protest of transgender mannequins at Macy's. Point to Brian Camenker's appearance on the Daily Show where he claims that he could show how to connect the dots from gay marriage to air quality, homelessness and crime rates.


Tell them how they have a habit of videotaping, recording and photographing children without their knowledge (they even testified at public hearing to remove the wiretapping law in Massachusetts so they have record more people against their will).


Point to the conservatives who believe that MassResistance and Brian Camenker are wacky, off the wall kooks.


Tell them about their mission (which failed) to remove the 4 judges from the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court (It's why they were originally named Article 8 Alliance).


Talk to them about all the conspiracy theories that MassResistance has conjured up these past years and finally tell them about how the MassResistance group testifies at State hearings to "educate" the legislators about how gays weren't victims of the Nazi Holocaust.


The people need to know the truth, tell them.

Hate Group Tries to Strike Again

How precious is this? I wrote yesterday about how MassResistance hadn't put anything up on any of their hate sites and then, surprise, surprise, they put up a new title late yesterday:
MassResistance files papers with MA Secretary of State to force statewide vote on Legislature's repeal of "1913 Law"

Pro-family activists to collect required 33,297 signatures by October deadline.

Watch for our FULL REPORT to be posted Sunday evening at 6:00 pm. And get involved!
Of course if you happened to see the site yesterday it was full of typos (someone must have alerted Camenker to his spotty spelling).

So, curious me, I wanted to see what exactly they were going to do. Hmm...gather over 33,000 signatures all by October, which still wouldn't stop out of state couples from marrying, so I went to the links they provided in their emails on the Massachusetts Constitution (funny, you can't get the links if you don't get their emails, I guess they're trying to hide all of this from the homosexual activists).

Now, I probably shouldn't really be saying this because I would love to bankrupt them by having them spent thousands of dollars, that would usually just go into Brian Camenker's pockets, on getting signatures for this absurd petition (how many people will sign when they find out that MassResistance is a hate group as defined by the Southern Poverty Law Center?).

BUT...

and I'm no lawyer, the repeal of the 1913 law is not a law but a repeal of the law. This will probably be something that will get tied up in courts if it gets that far (do you think that MassResistance has even consulted any lawyers on this? I can't imagine since they would most likely have to pay them.)

MY TAKE:

It doesn't seem like Constitution applies because the legislature is removing a law they they enacted. The provision in the Constitution that MassResistance is looking at is supposed to protect the people from a law enacted by the legislature and provides a safety mechanism for the people to repeal the law that the legislature has enacted. In this instance the legislature of it's own accord has repealed a law it found offensive. Talk about irony.

Are You Rapture Ready?

Cause the signs are there. It's been almost two months since the MassResistance blog has been updated and now it's going on two weeks and even MassResistance's main hate site hasn't even been updated (not even with regurgitated earlier posts). They used to claim that the there were updating daily Mon-Friday, alas, that was removed from their website.


They used to tease us with "We're preparing for another radio show", it's been 10 months and even that seems to have fizzled.


Do you think the money dried up and they had to get real jobs?


Do you think Amy has never recovered from her daughter's coming out?


So many unanswered questions and they just leave us hanging like a soap opera cliffhanger!

How's that McDonald's Boycott Working Out For Ya?

I was just at the gym watching CNBC news when what you should come on the screen? No, not news of Radical Right's boycott of McDonald's but news that McDonald's has hit an all time stock high! Then I found this when I got home for the CNBC website:






Despite a tough U.S. economy, McDonald's Corp. posted an 8 percent gain in July same-store sales on Friday as hungry consumers worldwide lined up for breakfast items and the classic Big Mac sandwich.


They go on to say that even in this tough economy McDonald's is still doing well. Oh, and no mention of the bigot's boycott.

Conspiracy Theories All Around!

I got a huge laugh when I surfed over to MassResistance this morning and saw their latest rant:

Did Boston Globe reporter tip off gay lobby to MassResistance plans for
Referendum Petition to stop "1913 Law" repeal?

HA! More with the conspiracy theories. MassResistance, once again thinking they're more important than the air we breathe, actually believes that the Mass Legislature was afraid that MassResistance would try to repeal it. The same MassResistance that was named a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The same MassResistance that protested transgender mannequins. The Mass Legislature is not as smart as MassResistance. LOL!


I think it's time Brian Camenker got a real job, apparently Ms. Contrada, his partner in hate must have since she hasn't updated the MassResistance blog since June 18th. Yes Brian, you might actually have to go and make a living off of something other than the fear of homosexuals.


His whole post is somewhat pathetic AND sad:

MassResistance was in the State House on Tuesday as the House was debating and voting on the bill.


He sounds a lot like Suede from this season's Project Runway. Brian Camenker IS MassResistance, make no mistake about that, Brian is speaking of himself in the third person to make MassResistance appear bigger than it is. Brian is now even calling the editors at the Boston Globe to find if "so and so told so and so about this and that what did they say, did they tell?" It's grammar school all over again "Psst, give this note to the cute boy in the second row and tell him I think he's cute and want to be BFF!" Oh please!


This not the first time MassResistance has conjured up conspiracy theories about the goings on around the State. Whenever things don't go the way they want they accuse others of being sleazy and dishonest especially when it comes to reporters too, they never seem to get anything right:

  • Letter to the Editor from Brian Camenker about the Anti-gay forum he ran in Acton. (2nd letter)


  • Blaming Mitt Romney for their anti-gay radio show being cancelled.


  • Somehow links the Ex-Speaker of the Massachusetts House Tom Finneran, one of the lead posters at KnowthyNeighor and Boston Herald writer Margery Eagan.


  • They even accused me of conspiring with Acton Police, the Massachusetts Attorney General, the Goodridge plaintiffs, and the entire Massachusetts Bar Association to break into her home in order to leave messages in the dust on her dusty table.

Oh, there are more examples of their conspiracy theories, I just wanted to list a few of the ridiculous accusations from their past. These people are not stable. I would also like to repeat one of the comments made on this blog:



massminuteman said... I love his latest self important conspiracy allegation.

Trust me, Brian, people looked at the 90 day period for usual bills to go into effect and saw that it pointlessly made weddings during August and early September impossible. People wouldn't be able to use vacation time attending them and couples would lose the optimal late summer weather to boot. It was that- purely practical thinking- that went into the 'emergency' preamble. And it was mentioned as desirable to do more than a month ago.


One more thing, check out today's headline (I will post it later since blogger is having trouble with pictures):
What calendar are they working with? No wonder they're all screwed up.

Wednesday, July 30, 2008

How Sad

MassResistance is so disturbed they can't even tell what year it is (hmm...this seems to be happening quite a bit lately....)


I guess all the spinning around that Brian's doing it throwing him for a loop and today's neither Thursday OR July 28th.

Breaking News

The Massachusetts Legislature approved the repeal of the 1913 law by a roll call vote of 118 to 35. How is Brian Camenker and the other crony at MassResistance going to spin this one since it passed overwhelmingly?

BayWindows has more details here.

Now it goes to the Governor for his signature.

In Memorial

Estelle Getty who played Sophia, Bea Arthur's mother, on the hit TV show "The Golden Girls" passed away today. She was 84.

Is She Singing?

Things must be really bad over at MassResistance. It has been over a MONTH and they have not put anything new up on their blog (they still headline with their attack on the Governor and his daughter.)

Same sex couples in California have been getting married, the Mass Senate votes unanimously to repeal a racist 1913 law on marriage and Jesse Helms dies and not a peep. Macy's even had a huge display in their window for Gay Pride and nada.

I guess being named a Hate Group by the Southern Poverty Law Center was the final nail in their coffin.

Well, we'll still be watching and waiting.

Hold a Press Conference and the Press Doesn't Show up

That's what happened yesterday in Illinois. Porno Pete and his merry band of manly men held a press conference near a McDonald's to talk about their latest boycott (which will have no effect what so ever). Listen to his ranting:


So once again the major media are doing the work of the homosexual lobby. Many in the media have decided that the “gay” issue is settled, and the homosexual activists have won. (Remember when Big Media thought the abortion issue was pretty much over?) Yesterday’s non-coverage was appalling journalism, even by corrupt Chicago standards. Clearly, the boycott story is compelling — even from a pure business perspective: already, nearly 200,000 people have signed AFA’s boycott petition


Dammit, I MUST BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY, I'VE BEEN TO TOO MANY LEATHER OUTINGS TO NOT BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY. He goes on to say that the people involved in the boycott are "good family people" not vegan (are they bad people now?) American hating leftists (Oh, only the right loves American as long as it's white, male dominated and Protestant) or some other fringe group (Petey, do you mean your group, the fringe right wackos who no news media wants to cover?) Denial, denial, denial.



But does this sound like anyone YOU know:


"I've never seen anything like that," Camenker exclaims. "Nobody, obviously, nobody wanted their name in front of this. Nobody was willing to get up and say anything," he continues. "You know, somebody could have at least called for a roll call vote. But it was...as cowardly as anything I've ever seen. This was completely choreographed by the gay movement," Camenker concludes. He adds that calling the process "sleazy doesn't even do it justice."


Wow, we're king of the WORLD! Who knew?



Oh Brian, about my post yesterday, your quote "nobody wanted their name in front of this" that is incorrect. Nobody wanted their name associated with NOT repealing the racist 1913 law. Get your facts heterosexual, er, I mean, straight (I guess I have to shut off the anti-OneNewsNow filter)

Wednesday, July 16, 2008

Cowardly = Unanimous?

Well, is it any surprise that MassResistance is SHOCKED, SHOCKED I tell you, that the Senate voted to repeal the racist 1913 law:
Mass. Senate repeals “1913 Law” to allow out-of-state gays to “marry” in MA using voice vote. Members too cowardly to go on record.

Uh, Brian, the Mass Senate voted unanimously to repeal this racist law...that means EVERYONE voted to repeal it. Let me repeat that, EVERYONE VOTED TO REPEAL THE 1913 LAW. How much more on the record is there?

I'm betting the real reason they're so pissed is that Brian Camenker only got "a few seconds" of air time by the local media.

Quotation Count for this latest MassResistance Rant: Too many to count

Tuesday, July 15, 2008

One More Strike and You're Out!

Well it's looks like MassResistance is batting 0-2 so far this week.



First off, they sent an email out to their followers to "read the riot act" to the Massachusetts State senators to stop them from removing bigotry from the law. They even got Porno Pete to put a blurb on his Americans for Hate website with a link to the State Senate's email addresses (funny, MassResistance doesn't provide a link on their website to this page even though it can be found elsewhere on the MassResistance site...) Of course, the State Senate voted to repeal the racist 1913 law, so much for MassResistance bombarding the State House.



Secondly, the Massachusetts House voted for a MassHealth Equality Bill:


Malia filed the MassHealth Equality Bill, H.B. 4107, to remedy the fact that because MassHealth relies on federal as well as state funding, same-sex married couples, whose marriages are not recognized at the federal level, are not treated as spouses under the program, which can pose serious financial hardships for couples should one partner require long-term nursing home care, among other issues. If signed into law by Gov. Deval Patrick, it would require MassHealth to recognize the marriages of same-sex couples and have the state pick up the cost of services for those couples that are denied by the federal government.


Now the repeal of the 1913 law has to go to the House (which it's expected to do this week) and the MassHealth bill has to go to the Senate (no word on when).



Ooh, MassResistance has those legislators shaking in their boots now!

Monday, July 14, 2008

MassResistance Who?

That's essentially what Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick said at an open meeting in Hull. Yet, if you read MassResistance, they make it sound like the Gov. knows all about these anti gay activists:

The Governor beat around the bush a bit, but Kevin persisted. His Excellency finally said:
" . . . I don't know about MassResistance. If they have an attitude, then the chances are I'm not going to meet with them. But if they want to bring a view forward -- and people have and do -- then I'll meet with them. Sure."

Us? Have an attitude? MassResistance pleads: Guilty as charged.
Nevertheless, the next day we submitted a formal request to the Governor's staff
for a meeting. We're willing to be reasonable!


Actually, if you listen to what the Governor says, it sounds like he has never even heard of MassResistance. Go here to see the video.

I also wish I could be there when Governor Patrick finds out that MassResistance is named a Hate Group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. I know I already emailed the Governor's office.

BTW, MassResistance also makes it easier to email the Massachusetts Senate to tell them that MassResistance is a recognized hate group. You can get their email addresses here from MassResistance's website.

MassResistance Tries to Summon Anti-Gay Forces AGAIN!

So this is how bad it's gotten for MassResistance. Instead of "daily news from the Pro-Family Action Center in Massachusetts", they post news once it's printed in BayWindows or the Boston Globe:

As the final few weeks of the session wind down, the Massachusetts legislature has decided to resurrect the controversial attempt to repeal the "1913 Law" - which the homosexual lobby has been crusading for and which is one of their "goals" for 2008. Rumors had been swirling around in the "gay" press about this. Today it was on the front page of the Boston Globe.

The bill would destabilize the Massachusetts marriage laws (see details below). Currently no out-of-state couple can get "married" in Massachusetts if that marriage would not be legal in their home state. This would overturn that law (passed by several states in 1913) and allow any homosexual couple in America to get "married" here - and cause havoc in their home states. (It would also cause Massachusetts to be a "gay marriage" capital of the world. If you think "gay pride week" was bad, imagine seeing it all year around.)


"It would also cause Massachusetts to be a "gay marriage" capital of the world" YEAH, because Massachusetts is SO MUCH more worldly than say the COUNTRY OF CANADA or SPAIN. I mean really, I love Massachusetts, but even I don't think Massachusetts is the center of the world. Uh, Brian, in case you haven't heard the news, California is marrying couples from anywhere in the country. (I should also point out that MassResistance is also stealing this quote from Mitt Romney who didn't want Massachusetts to become the Las Vegas for gay weddings.)

They even include an Action Alert and want their readers to harass the legislators even if they're not from Massachusetts. They tried the same thing with the Massachusetts budget and it didn't work then either, in fact, the Mass Senate gave money to at risk youth more funds than originally intended, so Thank You MassResistance, another success!

Today's MassResistance Quotation Count: A whopping 20!

Bette Davis Said it Best

On this occasion I would like to paraphrase Bette Davis:


You should never say bad things about the dead, you should only say good . . . Jesse Helms is dead. Good.

Jesse Helms will always be remembered for being a racist and a homophobe. Pam's House Blend covers his legacy here.

MassResistance's a Year Early On This One

The anti-gay activists over at MassResistance have finally gotten around to posting their pictures of Boston Pride (yes, they finally got the geography right for a second):





But wait, what's this at the top of the page:


Geez, first they couldn't figure out that Northampton was different than Boston and now they don't even know the days of the week (Thursday is July 3rd and Friday is July 4th Brian). Doh!


Instead of tracking LGBT people I think the duo at MassResistance need to go back to school, only keep them away from the other students, they like to take too many photographs of them.

As for their report, well, there's really no need to head over there unless you want to see some pictures of happy people enjoying themselves and if you missed Pride you can get some sense of the parade although they seem to leave out all the religious and political groups that also were in the parade (which seems to make up the largest portion of the Boston Pride parades).

And no, contrary to popular belief, there were no sightings of MassResistance's Amy Contrada marching with the PFLAG group. She's still in denial.

Quotation count for MassResistance's latest Rant: 10

Note: They had this to say about a group in the Parade:

Then came . . . well . . . these men. Who knows - maybe they're high school teachers or State House staff members during the week. Very disturbed people.

And the men they were referring to...Yeah, they're ACTORS and they were performing that weekend at Club Cafe. The troupe's name is "Fresh Fruit". MassResistance once again proves that they're CLUELESS.

UPDATE: Someone over at MassResistance must have gotten the memo since they have now changed the title on their site to Friday, July 4. They must have finally looked at the calendar or read this blog.

Where You Shouldn't Get Your News

Here's one for the books. One News Now, the "news" site from the American Family Associations has been OUTED. It seems that whenever an article from the AP is funneled through their website they change the terms in the article but still claim that it was sent by the AP:

This is absolutely hilarious. The American Family Association has a policy at its new outlet, OneNewsNow, never to use the word "gay" but to replace it with "homosexual." And that works absolutely perfectly until they write an article about an athlete whose last name is Gay, as in Tyson Gay, the fastest man on the US Olympic track team. And then you get this:

Tyson Homosexual was a blur in blue, sprinting 100 meters faster than anyone ever has. His time of 9.68 seconds at the U.S. Olympic trials Sunday doesn't count as a world record, because it was run with the help of a too-strong tailwind. Here's what does matter: Homosexual qualified for his first Summer Games team and served notice he's certainly someone to watch in Beijing.


"It means a lot to me," the 25-year-old Homosexual said. "I'm glad my body could do it, because now I know I have it in me."



Of course One News Now changes the wording because they believe that homosexual sounds worse than gay (or is it they just like writing the word SEX, one never can tell).



Hat Tip to the Bad Idea Blog for this gem!

Second Time's the Charm?

Wow, things are worse than I thought over at MassResistance. First off, it took them a week to post anything about Gay Pride in Boston and then when they did post something it was about Transgender Pride in Northampton (but they still called it Boston. Did they even learn geography?)

Then a week later they posted something about the Dyke March. Oh those nasty lesbians, they were shouting RECRUIT, RECRUIT and holding signs at a rally! Brian was right, those homosexual activists are recruiting!

So now, Sunday June 29, at the top of their website, they're posting the transgender pride story, AGAIN. It's the same story they posted two weeks ago only they link to the bottom of the page that lists the video.




WHERE IS THE NEW BONE CHILLING STUFF about the gays? Come on Brian, you're the head of the, ahem, Pro-Family Action Center for the State. Where's your report on California's Marriage Equality? Where's the report on the heterosexual girls in on the North Shore getting pregnant (will they take credit for that since it was done the Biblical way?) Where are the quotation marks?

The people want to know!

Are These Two on the VP Short List?

You can tell what kind of year this is turning out to be when two of the sponsors of the Federal Marriage Amendment are Senator Larry "Toe Tapping" Craig, who was arrested for lewd conduct in a Minneapolis airport terminal and Sen. David Vitter, who was identified as a client of a prostitution firm from the late DC Madam. This is what Republican Family Values looks like (Hat Tip to Pam's House Blend):

Sens. Larry Craig and David Vitter co-sponsor Marriage Protection Amendment

Two United States Senators implicated in extramarital sexual activity have named themselves as co-sponsors of S. J. RES. 43, dubbed the Marriage Protection Amendment. If ratified, the bill would amend the United States Constitution to state that marriage "shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman."



I think this needs a little more publicity. Americans need to be reminded about the Republican family values crowd. Next up on the agenda: How many people, who have been married for 2, 3 or more times, will attach themselves to this marriage amendment? Gotta love the Republican sanctity of marriage.

Thursday, June 26, 2008

From Daily to Weekly Updates

Well, it took MassResistance a whole week to post another new "exclusive" about Boston Pride. This time, it was about the Dyke March that was held last Friday. They even have video! The video is obviously from the same people who did the Youth Pride Day video because it has the same lame pans and zooms and features Window Movie Maker graphics.

BTW, nothing in the video is scandalous or frightening. I would guess that if the camera was turned around the people taking the video then we would have gotten something scary!

Oh, MassResistance also sent out an email message to supporters with the same lame crap they posted on their website. But they did get lots of pictures. You gotta wonder how creepy these people are to attend these events just to take pictures of people they don't know and post them on their website. I wonder how many of the pictures they took didn't end up on the website and are only in the secret folders of those who lustfully yearn to stare at them.

MassResistance Loses on the North and the South

Two HUGE defeats for allies of MassResistance:

An initiative campaign to repeal Maine’s gay rights law and put in place roadblocks to gay marriages and adoptions is being abandoned, leaders of the campaign said Thursday.

"We’re pulling the plug," said Michael Heath, executive director of the Christian Civic League of Maine. Heath said the evangelical group failed to attract voter, volunteer and financial support it needed to continue its campaign.

Puerto Rico's House of Representatives has denied a measure to toughen a ban on same-sex marriage.

Rep. Victor Garcia San Inocencio says Resolution 99 failed on Thursday to make it to the House floor for voting, effectively killing the proposal for this legislative term.

If you recall, Mike Heath of the CCL of Maine is a pal of Brian Camenker and this is another defeat for anti-gay activists in Maine. Heath got another anti-gay measure on the Maine ballot and it lost so apparently the thought he'd try again only this time it didn't even make it to the ballot. In a podcast with the CCL Brian blamed the loss of the marriage amendment in Mass on the MFI because it was weak and not strong enough (like what Heath wanted in Maine but couldn't even get the signatures for)

On the second bullet, MassResistance Dandy Mad Dad Parker went down to Puerto Rico to rally the troops against gay marriage. Unfortunately for them it didn't pass the legislature.

Is This Her BIG Project?

In MassResistance's never ending quest to vilify GLBT people, she is now going after the Massachusetts Governor's daughter:
How sad to read that Gov. Patrick's daughter not only thinks she's a lesbian, but is now working for Massachusetts' leading transgender radicals (pictured above). As an intern at MassEquality, Ms. Patrick would have been pressured big time to adopt their whole extremist agenda, including lobbying for the "Transgender Rights" Bill H1722.
However, what is more disturbing is the last paragraph in the post:
Since Ms. Patrick will be attending Smith College -- a hotbed of the wackiest transgender and lesbian activism, where the girls learn to hold really good riots -- the Gov had better prepare himself. His young daughter might just decide she's always been a boy and needs to have "gender reassignment" surgery (hysterectomy, breast removal, beard growth, and possibly the addition of a ...). We're sure the Gov would support her, since he loves her "no matter what."
They are strangely obsessed with gender reassignment surgery and can't talk about it enough (what did Freud say about cigars?).

Oh, and Amy, I doubt the Governor would pull his daughter out of school away from her friends and support network and publish personal details about her on the Internet and in emails. Yes, HE loves her no matter what, can you say the same?

I also wonder how Marilyn Humphries from Bay Windows feels about MassResistance stealing her copyrighted pictures and putting them up on their website?

They Can't Even Get Their Towns Correct!

You all know that the MassResistance folks aren't too bright, however, their latest post is just wrong. Take a look:




Now, using the Internets and Map Quest, you can see that Northampton is only 103 miles from Boston (that's where the Transgender Pride was held), but again, facts never get in the way of any post on MassResistance (Can you tell that the leaders there never went to Massachusetts public schools?)


Lately, they've been going after more transgender people instead of the GLB's but their hate mongering is still the same. The blog still hasn't been updated since May 9th. Do they think that going after trans people is going to get them off the Southern Poverty Law Center's Hate group list? I don't think so.

A Tale of Two Coming Out Stories

By now many of you already know that Governor Patrick's daughter came out in today's issue of Bay Windows:

On June 14, 2007, the day that lawmakers finally voted down an anti-gay marriage amendment to the state constitution, Katherine Patrick stood outside the State House and looked up at her father. Gov. Deval Patrick was standing on the front
steps, surrounded by a jubilant crowd of hundreds that mobbed the brick sidewalk and spilled halfway across Beacon Street. As they cheered the defeat of the amendment - an effort led by the governor, Senate President Therese Murray and
House Speaker Sal DiMasi - Katherine had never before felt more proud of her
father.

"Because, of course, he didn’t know that I was gay then," the 18-year-old recalls. "So, for someone so publicly to fight for something that doesn’t even affect him was just like, ’That’s my dad,’ you know?" she says with a laugh. "That’s all I could think. I was very, very proud to be part of this family, and this state in general."


Read the whole story, it's quite emotional and beautiful. Who could have ever guessed that Ms. MassResistance and the Massachusetts Governor would have anything in common. Go back and read about how Ms. MassResistance's family treated their daughter when she came out. It's more of a horror coming out story, very different and very sad.

If Only We Could All Vote After the Polls Have Closed

MassResistance has a new post up about a judicial appointment made by the Governor and of course, in MassResistance fashion, they label the judge a radical lesbian activist because she specializes in gay family issues:


Maureen Monks, about to become the newest judge of the Middlesex Probate and Family Court, is a long-time radical lesbian activist attorney. She specializes in "gay" family issues. Last week, when her nomination hit some rocky waters getting through the Governor's Council, Governor Deval Patrick simply ignored their official vote and announced he will swear her in. Monks' nomination - and the governor's action -- was strongly supported by both the Boston Globe and Boston Herald on their editorial pages.


The rocky waters that they allude to was that the Governor's counsel voted 5-2 to approve her but then in comes Mary-Ellen Manning, after the vote, late (hmm, if you vote after the polls close is YOUR vote still calculated?) and after the meeting she signed the register voting no even though she wasn't even there for the vote. HOWEVER, another Council Member, AFTER the meeting had already adjourned, decided to switch her vote from yes to no, this was Marilyn Devaney.

If Marilyn Devaney's name sounds familiar, you may remember her for being accused of attacking a beauty shop worker with a curling iron because they wouldn't accept her check. And does anyone even know what the Governor's Counsel is supposed to do? The members rarely even have opponents in the elections. Apparently, the Governor's Counsel has a very tattered reputation.

Gay Pride Week Begins!

Things must be getting really tough over at MassResistance. The blog hasn't been updated since May 9th when they vilified one of the bloggers at QueerToday and their main website is only sporadically revised, sometimes with just new titles on old stories.

They must have been busy this past weekend because it appears they ventured into the city with camera in tow to snatch some photos of the Gay Pride Celebrations:

This year, Menino managed to insult sports fans as well as tourists by mixing it with the city's pride in the Boston Celtics, which reached the NBA finals a few days before.

The same day, tourist mecca Faneuil Hall Marketplace began its "gay pride" celebrations, as well as Macy's Department Store (see photos below). And as usual, tourists -- especially those with children -- were left confused and often upset.


Because we all know that SO many sports fans were insulted (and there are no gay sports fans are there?) and the tourists are streaming out of the city because of a rainbow flag, OHHHHHHH. Their coverage of the Pride festivities is hilarious with lots of "quotes" to go around:
  • annual flag-raising ceremony at Boston City Hall to kick off "Gay Pride Week."
  • This year's "ceremony"
  • Who would want to watch this, anyway? (apparently MassResistance's peepers!)
  • What an obnoxious time to stage a homosexual event!
  • straggling homosexual activists
  • homosexual "pride"
  • zooming in on Macy's "pride calendar" display.

They supposedly call out Macy's for putting up another display window however, I do not believe that Macy is heeding any call to take it down like MassResistance likes to take credit for in years past.

The newspapers must not be calling MassResitance anymore and that makes Brian and Amy sad.

It's a Go!

The California Supreme Court rejected the efforts by several anti-gay organizations to delay the court's marriage equality ruling:
Conservative religious and legal groups had asked the California Supreme Court to stop its May 15 order requiring state and local officials to sanction same-sex unions from becoming effective until voters have the chance to consider the issue in November. The justices' decisions typically become final after 30 days.

Just like Massachusetts, the anti-gay activists argued that "chaos would ensue" if people were allowed to marry before the people got to vote on it. I wonder, if like Massachusetts, they will bring this up in Federal court? I never get why the fundies always complain about the courts yet keep bringing lawsuits and, when they don't get their way, shout "activist judges!"

Did any of them complain when the U.S. Supreme Court gave the presidency to George W. Bush by just 1 vote? No. How many of these "Christians" are complaining about the courts in Texas that just released the children of polygamists back to their parents? I didn't think so.

Who is Linda Harvey?

Because she's made as hell and isn't going to take it anymore! Linda is an anti-gay activist. She was supposed to appear at MassResistance's "forum" last year when Acton-Boxborough High school was putting on the "Laramie Project". Linda also signed MassResistance's letter last year criticizing Mitt Romney.

She, like Brian Camenker, founded and is the head of her own anti-gay organization "Mission America". What qualifies her to lead a ministry against homosexuality? Well, she's got a BA in English and experience in journalism, marketing and public relations that's what!

Well, it seems Mrs. Harvey is upset that Box Turtle Bulletin posted her picture on their website (I think she needs to chat with MassResistance and exchange notes about posting pictures):

I guess the whole thing started when Box Turtle Bulletin posted her rantings about the Day of Silence and exposed her:

She claims that “Child molestation is an everyday occurrence because of the increased access homosexuals have to our children” and advocates banning gay people from teaching (a position so radical that Ronald Reagan opposed it in 1978).

She claims that the vast majority of gay people are only employed sporadically due to their instability.

She believes that HIV is “almost exclusively a homosexual male and drug addict epidemic” and advocates that “gay social establishments should close until HIV rates are seriously reduced”.

She claims that for a Pastor to believe that gay persons can be Christian “is deliberate rebellion against God’s word and His created order of male/female genders and marriage.”

It's always nice when "Christians" feel the need to take on God's work and judge others. Thanks to Box Turtle Bulletin for keeping up with this and Pam's House Blend for catching my attention to it.
