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.

Thank you for reporting on this hate group.

But in the future, could you please editorialize with a lot less snark?

I'm for LGBT equality, but your writing in this post sounds like the snarky we-won-you're-losers writings of a Yes on H8 supporter.

Take the moral high ground, and show some dignity while you go about exposing their misdeeds. It will be a long slog, but it WILL pay off.

I disagree, strongly. The only rational response to the ranting of Brian Camenker and Amy Contrada is ridicule. If we can't dance, I don't want to be part of the revolution.

Preventing people from speaking and putting bullhorns onto the windows of a church constitutes "civil rights"?

Here's a tip: instead of inventing your own civil rights, how about just following the real ones?

Too hard for ya?

Yeah, yeah...everybody hears you. Those who don't agree with every single one of your twisted demands is a "bigot" and a "hater" and blah blah blah. You're like a child who doesn't get what he wants.
