The Truth is Out Here

It seems the Religious Right has been quoting the anti-gay MassResistance at various public hearings so I put together a few bullet points about MassResistance that may prove useful about what or who MassResistance/Brian Camenker really are:
  • The anti-gay MassResistance has been named a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center for two years in a row. The SPLC has stated that the groups on their list are: "Anti-gay groups are organizations that go beyond mere disagreement with homosexuality by subjecting gays and lesbians to campaigns of personal vilification."
  • At a recent MassResistance Banquet, the guest speaker was Scott Lively, the author of the book The Pink Swastika which alleges that gay men were not particularly persecuted under the German Nazi regime, and that homosexual men were especially prevalent in the ranks of German Nazism, and were in large part, the motivators of the Jewish Holocaust.
  • In an interview with the Daily Show, Camenker said that if he was given enough time he could "connect the dots" to same sex marriage in Massachusetts for the rise in homelessness and crime rates and the poor air quality.
  • MassResistance protested a Macys store in Boston because they believed Macys was dressing transgendered mannequins in their windows. MassResistance went so far as to roam the Macys and photograph what they considered "normal" mannequins and then compared the photos on their website.
  • On the MassResistance blog, the group stated that children learn about sex from hearing noises outside of their parents locked door: "And sometimes the bedroom door is locked and he hears noises. This is a child's normal introduction to sex. It is simply put before him in the context of normal, healthy family activities."
  • Even former Governor Romney, who is not an ally of the Marriage Equality movement issued a press release exposing Brian Camenker and this group MassResistance.

MassResistance Wins Again!

For the second year in a row, anti-gay MassResistance was named a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The SPLC states that hate groups in the country increased by 4% in 2008 from 2007. They are listed with 12 other active anti-gay groups in the country. The SPLC states that:

Anti-gay groups are organizations that go beyond mere disagreement with homosexuality by subjecting gays and lesbians to campaigns of personal vilification.

Wow Brian, congrats! Now you have another success story to put on your list and for 2 years in a row! Way to go!

A bit more disturbing is the addition of another anti-gay hate group in Massachusetts, the "The School of Christian Activism" in Springfield, Mass. What isn't surprising is that none other than anti-gay and Nazi revisionist Scott Lively, friend of anti-gay MassResistance's Brian Camenker (and one of the GREAT speakers at Brian's Annual Benefit) is associated with this "church".

Both of their Wikipedia entries for Lively and Camenker list them as being "conservative" when in fact they're anti-gay activists. Their histories have shown that these two men are obsessed with gay people and make their living off the hatred of gays and lesbians.

Psst...Did You Go To The Annual Brian Camenker Benefit?

It's been almost a month since the anti-gay MassResistance Annual fundraising Banquet or the Brian Camenker benefit (depending on how you look at it). You remember, the one that was supposed to "unveil our plans for winning the culture war in the Massachusetts State House". They were supposed to have 3 GREAT Speakers too! A washed up one term Republican Rep. from Texas, the Nazi revisionist Scott Lively and the ever present always in the court room Mad Dad David Parker. Gosh, I would have been sitting on the edge of my seat after listening to them! The banquet was such a big hit that everyone is talking and writing about it...except they're not.

In fact, even the anti-gay MassResistance website doesn't have anything about it however they did post an update on Feb. 13th. It stated that the anti-gay MassResistance, AKA Brian Camenker, searched high and low to find sponsors for his anti-gay bills in the Mass State House (hey Brian, how's that winning the culture war working out for ya in the Mass State House?). This past week BayWindows reported:

According to a post on MassResistance’s website the group "spent days in the State House, going door to door trying to get sponsors for these bills and talking to as many people as we could. We finally got what we needed, but it wasn’t easy."

And how does the future look for these anti-gay bills, BayWindows reports:

None of the group’s past anti-gay bills have gained traction in recent sessions, and with the appointment of two LGBT rights supporters, state Rep. Marty Walz (D-Boston) and state Sen. Robert O’Leary (D-Barnstable), as co-chairs of the Joint Committee on Education, there is little indication they will meet with greater success this year.

Well, there never is any information on the Camenker anti-gay benefits, whether this is because no one shows up or the people that do go are too embarrassed to publicly support the anti-gay MassResisance I'm not sure (even the hotel said they weren't holding a room for MassResistance so apparently Brian Camenker can't even reserve a room in the organization's name!)

However, I do think it's important that the sponsors of the bills that the anti-gay MassResistance is putting forward are aware of their status as a hate group. Here are the sponsors of the anti-gay MassResistance bills:

Start Your Engines!

If you're a fan of Project Runway you're sure to love "RuPaul's Drag Race":

9 contestants are vying for the title of America's Drag Queen Superstar. In the first episode these nine contestants must re-invent their glam drag looks using thrift store clothing and tschotchkes from the 99-cent store. Guest judge Bob Mackie stops by to help RuPaul weed out the drag queen with the least style.
Each cast member must embody the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent that made RuPaul an international drag superstar. The judges will determine the bottom two contestants of the week. Those contestants then compete in a show-stopping battle-royal "lip-synch for your life" performance that will determine if they will "shante" and stay and who will "sashay" away.
The show is a lot of fun. I first saw it while I was on the treadmill at the gym and almost fell off. New episodes air on Logo on Monday nights at 10:00PM but plays throughout the week. It also airs on VH1 at different times. Check your TV guide for more information.

Did Ya Hear about the $5.00 Cheaper Meal?

OK, it's been a week and a day since the most powerful MassResistance Fundraising Banquet ever with the $5.00 cheaper MEAL and MassResistance, aka, Brian Camenker, still hasn't posted anything about it! He, I mean they, were supposed to unveil the plans for winning the culture war in Massachusetts State House (Brian did ya get the memo that the new Speaker of the House is FOR Marriage Equality?)

Nevertheless, they did find time to post these jewels:

First, ensuring themselves another spot on the Southern Poverty Law Center's Hate Group list, MassResistance goes after a transgendered janitor who works in a school AT NIGHT! MassResistance is supposedly concerned about the children but instead they are going after a hard working person who is just trying to earn a living and pay their bills, unlike Brian Camenker who sends out emails asking people to donate and fund HIS lifestyle of hate.

MassResistance also provided the telephone numbers and email addresses of the school administrators so their lemmings can verbally and electronically harass them.

In the second bullet they once again claim success for "killing" bills by the homosexual lobby. Yeah Brian, add it to your other "successes", you know, the ones you had nothing to do with but claim victory for anyway. Oh, and if by "killing" you mean sent to a study, yeah, you killed it and when the Legislature passes them in this session how will you spin those? Like you did when you claimed you stopped money from funding the gay and lesbians programs in the state:

Successfully lobbied Legislators to sustain Gov. Romney's veto of the dangerous new independent "Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth" (one of only a few of his vetoes to be upheld in the Legislature), through grassroots action. Unfortunately, through subsequent arm-twisting tactics by the Speaker, it was later overturned. (July 2006)

or when you successfully got enough signatures to overturn the repeal of the anti-gay racist 1913 law:

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 . . .

Keep up the good work Brian, the economy's bad, we need a good joke to laughter at.
