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:
