DADT is Repealed

And MassResistance is mad as hell and they ain't gonna take it anymore and as usual they equate gay people to Nazi's:

But we all know the truth. This isn't a political disagreement. Whether we like it or not, we are being subjugated by people with a destructive and dehumanizing worldview. From the politicians in Congress imposing "Don't Ask Don't Tell" down to the sex-ed activists in local public schools who terrorized David Parker over teaching homosexuality to his six-year-old son, these people have become obsessed with creating a kind of secular utiopia in one form or another which they have decided will make everyone's life better, and therefore it must be imposed on everyone who doesn't agree, for their own good.

In doing so, these people believe that the ends justify the means. They are willing to use any manner of lies or vicious tactics to win. It's not an exaggeration to say that anything they can get away with, they will do, and that constitutions, laws, and morality are meaningless to them. They see us as less than human and they see themselves as superior -- as we have all experienced countless times. In that respect they are similar to the Communists and even the Nazis --it's the same basic totalitarian mindset. And they've been winning in America for decades.

And on their blog they talk about the continuing "feminization" of the military:
Sexual tension in the ranks means the end of military discipline.

The U.S. military took its first step on the sexual slippery slope when it admitted women to the military academies in the mid-1970s. Later, women began serving on the frontlines (just one way Bill Clinton ensured the decline of our once proud military and kowtowed to the radical feminists). The denial of reality—that there was no new element of sexual tension acting as a distraction from discipline—began then.
This is the same drivel that Porno Pete over at the Americans for "Truth" about Homosexuality is spouting and they're even using the same made up word "homosexualize"

Not to be left out, Kris Mineau of the Mass "Family" Institute is steamed and blames Mass Senator Scott Brown (the same guy who Brian Camenker of MassResistance was proud to have his picture taken with)

What a great holiday season!

Mass Family Institute's Against Anything Gay

For all of Mass Family's Institute's saying that 'they're only concerned with homosexual marriage' they sure are doing a lot to stop anything the even remotely affects gay people.

Case in point: In their recent Commonwealth update they are advocating for boycotting Home Depot:
Will you boycott The Home Depot? I have!
In the same update they complain about the critically acclaimed movie 'The Kids Are Alright' and regurgitate the same phony statistics given out by the Family Research Council.

I think MFI is starting to give MassResistance some competition as the most anti-gay group in Massachusetts.

Anti-Gay Activists Want to Judge

The anti-gay zealots, Maggie Gallagher, Peter LaBarbera, Kris Mineau, Tony Perkins, etc... have been piling on the federal judge who ruled last week that Proposition 8 was unconstitutional. They even started BEFORE his ruling came out (because they knew how weak their case was). Because they can't refute the facts of the case they have been making personal attacks on the justice.

By far the biggest attack on him has been about his perceived sexual orientation. They claim that he is gay (or homosexual because they love to use the word SEX) and because of this fact he should have recused himself.

So I finally read an article that sums up the whole story really well. Here is a snippet from the Miami Herald:

According to this line of ``thinking,'' a homosexual may competently judge a traffic dispute or an assault charge, but not anything having to do with, well . . . being a homosexual. For that, you need a judge who is as straight as the crease in George Will's pants.

But there is a hole in that ``logic'' wide enough to dance the Rockettes through. Every individual is a compilation of culture, experience, opinions, emotions and personal biases, so every judge brings baggage to the table.

But we trust a judge to put that baggage aside and decide an issue on its merits. You don't ask him to recuse himself unless something he has said or done suggests a conflict of interest.

Walker's critics judge him biased not because of something he's said or done, but because of something he supposedly is. By that logic, we must consider every heterosexual judge who ever ruled against gay rights as biased. Indeed, that reasoning would require women judges to recuse themselves from cases with women plaintiffs, Jewish judges to abandon cases with Jewish defendants, white judges to leave cases tried by white lawyers.

Nor is that remote and abysmal possibility what's most offensive here. No, what truly rankles is the implicit suggestion that only straight people can fairly and dispassionately judge when and if gay men and lesbians should be granted equality -- and that straights have an unquestioned right to make that judgment.


You know they are getting desperate when the harshest critique they can give the judge is that "he's gay." What about the FACTS people?

MassResistance Successes

It's been a banner year for MassResistance.

    • Successfully got a Tea Party Rally in Lexington, MA cancelled because the other speakers didn't want to be associated with a nationally recognized hate group.
    • Put together a "Report" on Elena Kagan that will ensure that she will not be confirmed as a justice on the United States Supreme Court. The reports writers: Amy Contrada, Brian Camenker WITH Peter LaBarbera. This "report" was picked up by all the leading news organizations like One News Now and Life Style News. It's a page turner!
    • Successfully still provides a link to oust Safe School Czar Kevin Jennings two years after his appointment. (How's that petition working out for ya?)
    • Successfully held onto the title of Hate Group by the Southern Poverty Law Center for the 3rd year in a row!

The rest of the year looks like it is going to be even more successful too. MassResistance just posted about a write-in candidate for Governor and Lt. Governor. The biggest laugh in their story was this tidbit:

And Davis could actually win it!

And if Davis should receive MORE votes than Tisei, he would replace him and appear on the ballot in the November general election. This has actually happened twice in Massachusetts in recent years -- a write-in candidate beat a ballot candidate in a primary in state rep races, and both times that candidate went on to became the state rep. So this adds a level of excitement.

As the late Paul Harvey would say "And now for the rest of the story..." The two people that were write-ins and won were PRO marriage equality candidates. One of the two, Carl Sciortino, has been on MassResistance's radar ever since he got elected. MassResistance even tried to get his opponent elected and successfully failed BIG time.

Here's a toast to MassResistance to keep it going. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts needs you, and you make our jobs so much easier!

Scott Lively On the Daily Show

I've written before about this infamous "Christian". He claims that Hitler was a homosexual and even wrote the "Pink Swastika" about supposedly homosexuals in the Nazi party, a book that has been discredited by every legitimate historian yet MassResistance keeps using it as a prop at legislative hearings.

As a side note, Scott Lively's "ministry" is now based in Western Massachusetts and has also been named a hate group, like MassResistance, by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Here's the video from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, it speaks for itself:

Mass Family Institute - Gay All the Time

Kris Mineau of the Mass Family Institute (MFI) has been making the rounds lately calling out the "activist judge" who ruled that sections of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was unconstitutional. It just so happens that Justice Joseph Tauro, or the "activist judge" as Mineau calls him was appointed to the Federal bench by Republican Richard Nixon and was a First Lieutenant in the United States Army.

I wonder if Kris Mineau knows that this "activist judge" became only the second judge to invoke The Adam Walsh Act of 2006 in which allows judges to indefinitely hold child sex offenders in jail if deemed a public danger.

Anyhow, while tooling around the MFI's website I happened on their July 20, 2010 update. Now, the subheading under their name says "Strengthening the family", however, the update was gay, gay gay. Every bullet was anti-gay, or dealt with homosexuality (because the anti-gay crowd love saying words with SEX in them):


Montana considers radical sex education curriculum
Senate JudiciaryCommittee approves Elena Kagan's nomination
Will SCOTUS let DC voteon marriage?
Get your marching orderson FRC's Special Military Webcast
Coverage of NOM's Summerfor Marriage Tour in New England
In ironic statement, Richard Tisei says "Let the people vote!"


I was going to change the link on the left side of the page to MFI but I can see that the Massachusetts Institute Against Gays still fits. They are not only concerned about same sex marriage but are making sure that GLBT Americans are not afforded the same rights as other Americans.

NOM Hate Tour Wants Small Turnouts

Hat tip to Joe.My.God for this story about how the National Organization for Marriage wants low turnouts for their bus tour so that they can use the video footage to claim that they are being outnumbered and threatened by those angry "homosexual activists". Joe posted a press release by the HRC:

"The bus tour is a total sham, plain and simple," said Fred Sainz, HRC's vice president of communications. "NOM's highly-touted bus tour is less about so-called 'traditional marriage' and more about creating an elaborate and cynical stunt. NOM rolled out a summer of nationwide events in order to draw lawful protesters, all so that NOM and its allies can pepper ongoing lawsuits challenging public disclosure laws with made-up stories of harassment. This unprecedented victimization crusade is the lowest denominator of political activism, and it won't fly."

In events in seven states, NOM has routinely played to crowds reportedly as small as two dozen people including NOM staff members. The organization's public statements on the bus tour have barely mentioned the content of the programs or the substance of its anti-LGBT message, instead focusing attention on much larger counter-protests that NOM has attacked as intimidation and harassment. NOM issued a press release last Friday saying that LGBT supporters have "approached and threatened children," engaged in "bullying tactics" and committed acts of harassment. However, NOM's uncorroborated claims belie legitimate local media reports demonstrating that pro-equality supporters, which have vastly outnumbered NOM's faithful, have been civil. NOM has yet to document any illegal activity or actual harassment, despite the presence of law enforcement at all the events.

NOM's efforts to trump up false claims of harassment are part of a radical nationwide plan to evade long-established public disclosure laws and to hide their political activities from legitimate scrutiny and accountability. In doing so, NOM has falsely alleged that their donors have been harassed and intimidated across the country to justify why it shouldn't have to play by the same rules as everyone else. These tactics have prompted a state ethics investigation in Maine and recent court defeats across
the country.

Of course there have been no arrests at any of the stops and all the ranting and raving has been done by NOM's leader Brian Brown who claims after the Providence stop that "their children were afraid" It's always all about the children.

However, even with the huge turnouts by the Marriage Equality supporters, there have been no signs like this:

I bet you won't find this picture on NOM's website!

Tea Party Rally Canceled Because of MassResistance's Presence!

This was supposed to be a post about the Tea Party Rally going on in Lexington this Sunday, supposed to be. I was going to write about all the conservative politicians attending along with the infamous leader of that nationally recognized hate group MassResistance, and, well, see for yourself:

Tea Party to rally on the Battle Green in Lexington

The rally, which will take place on Sunday, July 25, from 1 to 3 p.m., will include addresses by Jesse Segovia, the event organizer and chairman of the Lexington Republican Town Committee, WRKO Radio talk show host Todd Feinberg, and Brian Camenker, president of MassResistance, an organization that describes itself as a “pro-family action center for Massachusetts” and which opposes gay marriage.

Then there was this the next day:

Dahlberg backs out of Tea Party rally in Lexington

Eric Dahlberg, a Republican candidate for state Senate from the 3rd Middlesex District, has withdrawn from a Tea Party rally scheduled to take place in Lexington on Sunday after learning that Brian Camenker, president of MassResistance, would be speaking at the event.

“Some consider MassResistance a hate group,” Dahlberg said. “I don’t want to be within a mile of an event that gives someone like that a stage.”

Then, surprise, surprise, only hours later....

Lexington Tea Party rally canceled

Event organizer Jesse Segovia, chairman of the Lexington Republican Committee, said he “never gave a thought to uninviting Camenker,” whom he called a personal
friend.

According to Segovia, other speakers followed Dahlberg’s lead and began pulling out during the day on Thursday, prompting him to cancel the rally.

Isn't it great when Americans learn the truth about hate groups! Keep spreading the word.

MassResistance in the News...well, not the REAL news...

While I haven't been posting that much recently, I have been keeping an eye on the goings on over at that nationally recognized hate group MassResistance. The truth is that the public has really seen how whacked out they are and that the people in Massachusetts don't give them any mind, if they even know who they are.

So I've decided to start posting the news articles that feature MassResistance, there aren't that many and most of them are usually on some little know website like OneNewsNow (who is that you might ask?), that wbsite is affiliated with the AFA (American Family Association), but then again, the majority of people have never even heard of OneNewsNow either:

From the WorldNutDaily:

Critics fear Kagan would use bench to promote 'gays'

Mass Resistance contends, "Kagan's record while dean of Harvard Law School demonstrates her agreement with the goals of the radical ["gay," lesbian, bisexual and transgender] movement and her solidarity with those activists."

"Kagan's celebration and active promotion of the radical homosexualist and transgender worldview has profound implications," the group argues. "As a Supreme Court Justice, she could be expected to overturn traditional law and understandings of family, marriage, military order and even our God-given sex (what transgender radicals call "gender identity or expression"). She is a most dangerous nominee who must be opposed by all who care about religious freedom, the preservation of marriage and traditional values."

From LifeSiteNews:

10-Year-Old Boy Used as Grand Marshal of Arkansas Homosexual Fest

Brian Camenker, the leader of MassResistance, a pro-family group in Massachusetts, told LifeSiteNews.com that saying Phillips is being "indoctrinated" is "not a strong enough word."

"They are taking these kids who are in a very vulnerable and formative time in their lives, and basically telling them they're gay or what have you," he said, adding that "the kinds of things that go on in these parades ... are just really gross and hideous."

"Transexual, S&M, they're getting more into young kids," he said.

Camenker related the story of a MassResistance volunteer whose daughter similarly drew media attention when, after being pressured by the gay-straight alliance at her high school, declared that "she's a lesbian, hates her mother and father, [and] has this lesbian girlfriend."

"The gay newspapers of course wrote it up, because she was involved with us, and they were inviting her to be involved with the gay pride parade ... even the Boston Globe called her up to interview her," he said. Things changed, however, when the girl's mother removed her from the school and sent her to an out-of-state Christian school.

The girl is now preparing to marry her male fiancé in August, and, according to Camenker, dismisses her youthful flirtation with lesbianism.

"She wasn't lesbian any more than I was a lesbian," he said. "I think that happens with a lot of kids. So this is really dangerous."

Hmmm...not really sure what Brian meant by that last comment.

I guess they were also on NPR, I didn't hear them but my husband told me about it. Apparently, have them on NPR only increased their "cringe quotient" as everything MassResistance said on the air was crazy.

NOM rolls out the Hate Bus

The National Organization for Marriage is rolling through a state near you to "protect marriage" yet what exactly they doing to protect marriage is unclear. All they have done to "protect marriage" is to advocate discrimination against gay and lesbian couples and state that they're not bigots. They haven't done anything to actually protect marriage.

Of the millions of dollars they have raised have they ever directly helped the children they claim to protect? No. Have they reduced the divorce rate in any of the states that they claim victory for preventing marriage equality? No. (Massachusetts still has one of the lowest divorce rates in the country even after 6 years of marriage equality, what does THAT tell you?)

They held up a beauty queen as a model of God's work against marriage equality and then pushed her to the curb when it came out that "God's model" was doing some pornographic modeling of her own and sending sexting it off on her phone.

Maybe they should have started their tour in Argentina where that country just adopted marriage equality.

MassResistance is linked to Anti-gay "Christian" Rent Boy Patron

Yes folks. It appears that MassResistance has been using Dr. George Rekers documents to boost it's "It's bad to be gay" creed. So I guess it's bad to be gay unless you pay for it?


On April 8, 2010 MassResistance posted on its blog the following:
Pediatricians Warning Schools: Do Not Promote Being 'Gay'

We have lived the nightmare of GLBT activists meddling in the life of our family, and cruelly targeting a confused young child. Luckily, our personal stories have turned out well.

But how many young people are drawn into unhappy lives -- even the dangerous sadomasochist underworld -- by the twisted preaching of GLSEN, PFLAG, and their "Safe Schools" agents?

The American College of Pediatricians is right on target with their new report, "Facts about Youth."


And guess who's one of the American College of Pediatricians? Yep, you guessed it, Dr. George Rekers! This bogus group sent out the letter to Superintendents around the country right before Dr. George Rekers took his European trip with an escort from Rentboy.com.


Here is a link to Rachel Maddow's reporting on the Rekers scandal and her expose on the American College of Pediatricians.

Family Research Council Founder and "Expert" Anti-Gay Witness Caught with a Rent Boy!

It's a birthday wish come true, another anti-gay "christian" is caught! No, not in a bathroom trying to pick up an undercover cop or not from being with a gay "massage therapist" Not even from trying to pick up men in a bathroom stall at the airport...although you're getting closer!

Dr. George Rekers, board member of NARTH ( National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality.) and one of the founding members of the Family Research Council (who until just yesterday could be found on their website but has since been scrubbed of any trace of Rekers) was spotted at the airport with a RENTBOY.COM, see picture below. Major hat tip goes out to Joe of Joe.My.God for first alerting me to this story. Rekers is also one of the "Dr's" in the fake pediatrician group that MassResistance is always touting:



The Miami New Times! first broke the story about

On April 13, the "rent boy" (whom we'll call Lucien) arrived at Miami International Airport on Iberian Airlines Flight 6123, after a ten-day, fully subsidized trip to Europe. He was soon followed out of customs by an old man with an atavistic mustache and a desperate blond comb-over, pushing an overburdened baggage cart. That man was George Alan Rekers, of North Miami — the callboy's client and, as it
happens, one of America's most prominent anti-gay activists. Rekers, a Baptist minister who is a leading scholar for the Christian right, left the terminal with his gay escort, looking a bit discomfited when a picture of the two was snapped with a hot-pink digital camera. Reached by New Times before a trip to Bermuda, Rekers said he learned Lucien was a prostitute only midway through their vacation. "I had surgery," Rekers said, "and I can't lift luggage. That's why I hired him." (Though medical problems didn't stop him from pushing the tottering baggage cart through MIA.) Yet Rekers wouldn't deny he met his slender, blond escort at Rentboy.com — which features homepage images of men in bondage and grainy videos of crotch-rubbing twinks — and Lucien confirmed it.
That's where the story started, but it's legs are still running. Within hours the Family Research Council erased all traces of Rekers from their website. Then, Rekers responded to Joe on Facebook. It's very disturbing how he equates a 10 day vacation with a 20 yr old rent boy to being like Jesus spending time with sinners, but he does. It is all too delicious to take in in just one day. Like everyone else, I'm just wondering which hypocrite will be next?

MassResistance Named a Hate Group AGAIN! 3rd Time!

3rd time's the charm. MassResistance was once again named a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Brian Camenker is sure to wear his hate tiara proudly.

It's fitting to hear about it today while same sex couples in Washington D.C. are finally being treated equally. There IS no turning back. Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Iowa, Vermont and now Washington D.C are issuing marriage licences to same sex couples.

Not to get too nostalgic but I started this blog when MassResistance was still calling themselves the Article 8 Alliance. Their sole purpose then was to recall the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court who recognized that same sex couples were entitled to be married under the Massachusetts Constitution. That was almost 7 years ago.

Margaret Marshall is still the head Justice and Brian Camenker is still the head of a hate group but thousands of gay families are protected under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. MassResistance has done nothing to stop the wheels of progress.

It's a great day!
