The MassResistance blog began in early 2005 with a Massachusetts focus on judicial tyranny, same-sex "marriage", and LGBT activism in our schools. We broadened our focus to national-level threats to our Judeo-Christian heritage, the Culture of Life, and free speech. In 2006, Article 8 Alliance adopted the name "MassResistance" for its organization. CAUTION: R-rated subject matter.

Southern Poverty Law Center Identified as "HATE GROUP"
Recently, the SPLC listed MassResistance as a "hate group" -- though we fail to meet their own definition of an organization "that [goes] beyond mere disagreement with homosexuality by subjecting gays and lesbians to campaigns of personal vilification.”
Hmm ... all we've ever done is to report what the GLBT individuals themselves said or did publicly. Is it personal vilification on our part if the Boston Herald reports on the arrest of a major gay lobbyist for solicitation of college students, and we note that report? No -- that's news about a public figure. To comment that the leader of the Mass. transgender political organization has had her breasts removed is “personal vilification”? No, that’s just describing part of what transsexuality is all about.
The claims by SPLC are absurd on their face. MassResistance is led by an Orthodox Jew, yet the HUGE majority of “hate crimes” they report in Massachusetts between 2003-2007 are against Jews! Second are crimes based on race, then ethnic group, then religion, then “sexual orientation”.
“Hate Crimes” in Mass., 2003-2007, as reported by Southern Poverty Law Center
“Sexual Orientation”: 5
[NOTES: Numbers approximate, due to overlap for instance with KKK referring to blacks, Jews, and religion. The overwhelming majority were non-violent slurs delivered verbally, or through graffiti and pamphleting.]
So according to SPLC, MassResistance, led by a Jew, is fanning the flames of anti-Semitism in Massachusetts? And another MassResistance leader, who has an interracial family, is fanning the flames of racism in Massachusetts? Or are they somehow responsible for a ruffian yelling insults at a homosexual individual because they oppose the normalization of sodomy, and homosexual "marriage"?

Obama Fully Supports "Transgender Rights"
Will Obama's health care plan cover all of the trans demands for bizarre hormone injections, surgeries, and devices? (Why is no one else asking these questions?)
Obama lobbies 'gays' for edge over Hillary; Letter to 'LGBT community' affirms he'd dump Defense of Marriage Act
It's not easy to find on his campaign website, but Sen. Barack Obama has issued an open letter to the "LGBT community" assuring them he believes in "full equality" for homosexuals and stating that, unlike Sen. Hillary Clinton, he advocates the complete repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act.
In the letter, published on a campaign blog, Obama says he's "running for president to build an America that lives up to our founding promise of equality for all – a promise that extends to our gay brothers and sisters." Pointing out that throughout his career he's "fought to eliminate discrimination against LGBT (Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) Americans," Obama lists some of his specific accomplishments.
In the Illinois legislature, he "co-sponsored a fully inclusive bill that prohibited discrimination on the basis of both sexual orientation and gender identity, extending protection to the workplace, housing and places of public accommodation." As president, he says, "I will place the weight of my administration behind the enactment of the Matthew Shepard Act to outlaw hate crimes and a fully inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act to outlaw workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity."
... Obama says he will also use the presidency's bully pulpit to "urge states to treat same-sex couples with full equality in their family and adoption laws." The candidate for the White House says he would not prevent legalization of same-sex marriage. "I personally believe that civil unions represent the best way to secure that equal treatment," he sayes. "But I also believe that the federal government should not stand in the way of states that want to decide on their own how best to pursue equality for gay and lesbian couples whether that means a domestic partnership, a civil union or a civil marriage." ...

"Transgender Rights & Hate Crimes" Bill Must Be Defeated
Bill H1722 would add the essentially undefined phrase "gender identity or expression" to many existing Mass. statutes, opening the door to unimaginable perversions played out in public – and the public will have no right to object. H1722 would:
- add a new category of persons (falling under the undefined phrase “gender identity or expression”) to those receiving special protection under Massachusetts “hate crimes” statutes.
- make it a "civil right" to cross-dress in public places or on the job, and a "civil right" to receive sex-change procedures in all hospitals;
- open up restrooms and locker rooms everywhere (including public schools) to persons of the opposite sex;
- force all businesses to accept cross-dressing and transgenderism (including sex-change transitions) among their employees (or clients), and eventually to include bizarre "health coverage" in employee benefits packages;
- force public schools to include "transgender" education at all levels, and make any complaints criminal (as incitements to discriminate);
- make it criminal discrimination to refuse to rent to a transsexual-related business or transgender person in your own property, or even to speak out against this in your own neighborhood (even if next to a church or school);
- make it criminal discrimination for a financial organization to refuse a loan to a transsexual-related business;
- give state sanction to dangerous surgical mutilations and hormonal manipulations of people suffering from a recognized psychiatric disorder, with unknown long-term health consequences;
- deny religious exemption except for an organization "which limits it membership, enrollment, admission, or participation to members of that religion" (thereby not exempting most religious schools, or businesses owned by individuals with sincerely held religious beliefs, etc.)

Acton-Boxborough's Fall Play Directed Students to Racist "Gay" Porn
"The Laramie Project" (and the study materials given to students in the production) references another homosexual propaganda play, "Angels in America" -- encouraging children to seek it out. Not having read "Angels in America," we didn't realize how vile it is. Now "Angels" is being exposed by an Illinois parent group, outraged that it was assigned in their high school. (See the excerpts from the play they've highlighted.) From Concerned Women for America's recent press release:
High School Officials Assign Racist “Gay” Porn;
State officials say it violates obscenity law but they can’t prosecute school officials
Washington, D.C. — Deerfield High School in Deerfield, Illinois, had assigned the pornographic book “Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes” to students as required reading. When a group of outraged parents found out, they filed a formal complaint. Now the book has been changed to an “optional title,” meaning kids may still select the book for peer study under the direction of a teacher.
The book is replete with profanity, overt racism through multiple uses of the N-word, an explicit description of a sex act involving Mother Theresa and some of the most graphic, vile and vivid depictions of homosexual anal sodomy every put in print. (Link to Excerpts – Warning: Extremely Graphic Sexual Content).
“After almost 15 years of school advocacy and reviewing many objectionable books and curricula, I have never seen anything this vulgar and harmful to students,” Lora Sue Hauser, Executive Director of North Shore Student Advocacy (NSSA), told Concerned Women for America (CWA)....

Keep Your Kids Home on the "Day of Silence"
National Coalition Urges Parents to Keep Kids Home on “Day of Silence”
COLUMBUS, OH -- A nationwide coalition of Christian and pro-family groups is calling for parents to keep children out of schools on Friday, April 25, 2008 — the day when thousands of middle schools, junior highs, and high schools will observe the 12th annual “National Day of Silence.”
Buddy Smith of American Family Association asserts, “It’s outrageous that our neighborhood schools would allow homosexual activism to intrude into the classroom. ‘Day of Silence’ is about coercing students to repudiate traditional morality. It’s time for Christian parents to draw the line — if your children will be exposed to this DOS propaganda in their school, then keep them home for the day.”
“It amounts to educational malpractice for school officials to engage in one-sided homosexual activism,” said Matt Barber of Concerned Women for America. “Our schools are supposed to be places of learning, not places of political indoctrination. It is the height of impropriety and cynicism for “gay” activists and school officials to use children as pawns in their attempt to further a highly controversial and polarizing political agenda.”
“Day of Silence” is promoted by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), a homosexual activist group that targets schools. The event is typically organized by a school’s Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) and is designed to pressure students to regard homosexual, bisexual, and transgender behavior as normal and worthy. Students and even some teachers remain silent throughout the school day, disrupting the teaching environment. Protesters wear t-shirts and hand out “speaking cards” protesting alleged injustice, harassment, prejudice, and discrimination toward “LGBT” people and their “allies.” ...
From Mission America, including the list of schools around the country that participate:
Help Stop the Political Hijacking of Schools
Boycott the April DAY of SILENCE!
[includes list of schools likely participating in the April 2008 "Day of Silence"]
This pro-homosexual day communicates clear (and false) messages to ALL students in the school that: homosexuality is a worthy lifestyle; that it has few or no risks; that some people are "born" homosexual, including students; and that those who oppose this behavior are hateful and uninformed.
We do NOT agree. The Day of Silence is, sadly, a day of deception.The facts do not support the implications noted above. Responsible parents and communities will oppose this message of corruption and well-informed schools that really care about kids will never allow this nonsense to take place on the school campus....

Judiciary Committee Hearing Will Expose Lies by Mass. Family Institute, Romney, and Mainstream Media
But will the mainstream media report it? Of course not, because they don't want their LIE exposed, that "same-sex marriage is legal in Massachusetts."
See Gregg Jackson's excellent blog on this today at Pundit Review: Who’s Delusional Mitt?
How revealing: Massachusetts Family Institute (MFI) contradicts itself on two bills regarding "homosexual marriage" before the Judiciary Committee tomorrow:
- The first, Bill H1720 (also S918) filed by the homosexual lobby, would legalize “homosexual marriages” (changing the marriage statute to allow two people of either gender to marry) -- something never done after the SJC’s Goodridge ruling made that suggestion in November 2003.
- The second, Bill S926, filed by MassResistance, would declare all supposed “homosexual marriages,” contracted from May 17, 2004 on, “NULL & VOID” -- since there was never any change in the statutes to permit such “marriages.”
While MFI tells its people to oppose the legalization of "homosexual marriage" in the first bill, it doesn't tell them to support the MassResistance bill. Why not?
Logically, if you oppose the first bill, you would also support the second. Clearly, if “homosexual marriage” was never legalized, such supposed “marriages” in Massachusetts have not been legal. So why not so declare them “NULL & VOID” as the bill says?
Sadly, Massachusetts Family Institute (MFI) has tied itself up in knots on this one. They admit the first bill exists, and therefore they must understand that “homosexual marriage” is still not legal. So why did their hero Mitt Romney issue fraudulent “marriage licenses” to homosexual couples (starting May 2004), and order state office holders to comply? Romney was violating the Constitution by ordering his executive branch to implement a fantasy that was never made law. Only the Legislature can rewrite the marriage statute, and that was necessary before the Governor could constitutionally change the marriage licenses!
Yet MFI refuses to support the second bill, filed by MassResistance, which recognizes this reality. Don’t they want clarity in the Massachusetts marriage laws? The problem is, they can't have that -- and defend Romney's actions too.
MFI supporters must realize that they've been lied to and misled by that organization. It's a disgrace.

"The Underground Journal" Exposes Betrayal by "Pro-Family" Leadership
MFI also sold out in its compromise on the VoteOnMarriage amendment wording (even claiming we could "dialogue" with MassEquality!); its failure to support the removal of the Goodridge-majority judges; its failure to support bills filed by MassResistance (including the Parents' Rights bill); and its pattern of hijacking work and research from MassResistance without accreditation, while publicly denouncing our "tone".
Grassroots conservatives sense that their real agenda is to defend their own perks. Real pro-family, moral conservative candidates are being undermined. Politicians who stand for nothing but pretend to stand for everything buy endorsements from trusted "conservatives." The grassroots are figuring out why election victories turn into betrayals on policy. There has been no greater betrayal in our lifetime than in the cover-up of Mitt Romney's actions in Massachusetts:
