MassResistance Makes the Advocate

Yes! Massachusetts' infamous anti-gay zealots over at MassResistance made the Jan 29, 2008 issue of The Advocate in a column entitled "Antigay and Proud" by Jim David. The article takes a look at the latest hate-based groups in the U.S. and unfortunately one (and possibly two) are located in Massachusetts (if you want to read the article you have to get the magazine since the article is not online yet).

The bulk of the article talks about Scott Lively and his Holocaust revisionist book "The Pink Swastika" and the violence that seems to follow Lively and his "Watchmen on the Walls".

The write then moves across the country and stops in Milwaukee where a "Pastor" Matt Trewhella claims that the California wildfires were because of the state's new educational law which is not discriminatory to gay people.

Finally, he ends the article with a paragraph about Massachusetts' most radical and crazy bigots MassResistance (although he leaves out that Scott Lively has now moved to Massachusetts so we two nuts for the price of one):
And in Massachusetts (yes, even there), a group called MassResistance tried to get Acton-Boxborough Regional High School to cancel its production of The Laramie Project. Ironically, the daughter of one of the group's leaders was in the play and came out as a lesbian. Her mother then withdrew her from the show and the school. The group has a conniption and posted the following on this website "Of course, Claudia is no more a lesbian than the man in the moon. She's always has crushes on boys, and her bedroom has always been (and still is) plastered with pictures of boys." A picture of a wall covered with teen idol boys who look like girls appears with the caption "Does this look like a lesbians' room to you?" Uh, yeah, kinda. Pray for Claudia.

I wonder if Brian is feeling the heat as told by KeepRight in the comment section of my post titled "Tracking MassResistance's Fundraising"?
