It's no wonder Meg Soens is in tight with the ACLU. She has organized Lexingtonians against the Parker family over the last year. She also led a session at the 2000 GLSEN Boston conference (in the year of "Fistgate") on how to incorporate lesbian materials into the elementary curriculum. And the Parker case is a favorite target of the ACLU.
Carol Rose, Executive Director of the ACLU of Massachusetts, also lives in Lexington. Her office published a press release in April, condemning "the filing of the lawsuit [by the Parkers and another family] against Lexington school officials as a baseless, discriminatory effort by a few parents to frighten teachers, interfere with public education, and censor discussions and programs to suit individual religious doctrine."
ACLU of Massachusetts staff attorney "Sarah Wunsch decried Macy’s for 'succumbing to the bigotry' of a fringe anti-gay group" in removing the Macy's mannequins. (Boston Herald, 6-7-06) Also on that topic, Wunsch said on WRKO radio that MassResistance supporters "foam at the mouth."
The ACLU is at the forefront of the radical homosexual movement. "The Lesbian & Gay Rights Project fights discrimination and moves public opinion on LGBT rights through the courts, legislatures and public education." They instruct young students on how to start "clubs" -- gay-straight alliances -- in their schools. The Massachusetts ACLU recently removed staff names and contact information from its website.
