A Senate vote is expected to take place today or Friday. We've been in constant contact with key Orthodox Jewish activists, who have used our MassResistance material on "What Same-Sex 'Marriage' did to Massachusetts" in State House lobbyng. Can our side hold the line?Of course MassResistance is still pulling out all the stops with the scare tactics about marriage equality, of course there no mention of Massachusetts having the lowest divorce rate in the country. One of the lies they're touting:
By the following year it was in elementary school curricula. Kindergartners were given picture books telling them that same-sex couples are just another kind of family, like their own parents. In 2005, when David Parker of Lexington,
MA – a parent of a kindergartner – strongly insisted on being notified when teachers were discussing homosexuality or transgenderism with his son, the school had him arrested and put in jail overnight.
If you click on the first link it's about the book "Who's in a family" and talks about all different types of families, no mention of marriages in this book. Then they bring up Mad Dad David Parker who held up in an elementary school knowing full well that if he didn't leave he would be arrest, Parker LOVES to play the martyr.
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. Both high schools in my own town now have principals who are “married” to their same-sex partners, whom they bring to school and introduce to the students.
MassResistance LOVES the quotation marks. They want same sex married couples to hide in the closet. Wants the teachers to lie to their students about their marriages and wants them to be second class citizens by not allowing them to talk about their families, that's right, their LEGAL families. Oh the horrors!
The wedding industry is required serve the homosexual community if requested. Wedding photographers, halls, caterers, etc., must do same-sex marriages or be arrested for discrimination.
Another lie, no one has been arrested or will be. Where do they get this shit?
Their list goes on and on with one ridiculous accusation after another and of course, ends with how these marriages are not really legal (did Brian Camenker or Amy Contrada ever go to law school?
The only thing that's changed in Massachusetts since marriage equality went into effect is that MassResistance is now labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center for their attacks on the LGBT community. They never had crediblity but they never lost that, except that now the right wing fringe lunatics picked up their rants and post them in obscure part of the country.
What did Same Sex Marriage do to Massachusetts? Make Brian Camenker a laughing stock across the country.
