Culture War: Anti-Gay rally in Boston?
If i were a betting man, i would wager that using the term "liberal" to describe Boston or Massachusetts would cease by the end of this decade. Sounds farfatched for the Gay-marriage state? Not really, or rather, not Anymore! From the people who brought you the story of the school that gives 6 year old kids a story that has gay parents, comes the new and Improved gay sex education booklet titled "The Little Black Book - v2.0 Queer in the 21st Century" to be handed out to middle-school children in Brookline Highschool. To call the book's contents- which you can check out here- graphic and explicit, well, its kind of an underestament, even for a sex education book. The last sex education Book i've had never included Fisting, rimming, water sports or why using condoms is necessary in order not to get "dookie on your noodle". Kids these days! Naturally, parents are outraged, and they are staging a rally against the "enforced homosexualization in Massachusetts": Brian Camenker of the Article 8 Alliance says since the MSJC legalized same-sex unions, Massachusetts has become overrun by homosexuality. "Even driver's licenses now, when you renew them, have a question such as, 'Has your sex changed?'" he notes. Parents have even been arrested by police for resisting having their kids exposed to homosexuality, the pro-family advocate claims. "Society is going through this enforced homosexualization in Massachusetts," he says. "It's truly frightening." For example, he points to Lexington parent David Parker, who was arrested and charged with "trespassing" at his son's elementary school during a scheduled meeting with the principal and the town's Director of Education over his objections to homosexual curriculum materials. Camenker and other traditional family supporters feel the MSJC's ruling legalizing homosexual marriage was tantamount to ripping the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts into shreds. In addition, he maintains that parents and others who believe in the biblical view of homosexuality are being vilified in the schools by supporters of the educators' unions. In response to all this, the Article 8 spokesman reveals that a big rally is being planned for City Hall Plaza in Boston, with its number-one priority being to inform the media and the public about what is going on. "Essentially, we're going to outline to the press the kinds of things that have been going on in this year that have oppressed the people," he says, such as "the incredibly accelerated homosexual agenda in the schools because of this [court ruling]." You know, i am one of those people who usually roll their eyes whenever i hear the words "Homosexual agenda", because for me it's the equivelant of saying "Zionist conspiracy"= Pure B.S. . I say that because i have known a lot of gay people in Boston and they do not agree on a damn thing, let alone have an agenda. Most of them have issues with being Gay themselves, let alone wanting to convert anyone's son or daughter to their lifestyle, as some people claim they are doing. However, i do realize that there are a number of extremist Gay advocacy groups that are pushing the line in regards to gay rights because they are emboldend by the gay marriage ruling and they think that the whole world is ready to fully accept them and their lifestyle, which is far from the truth. People are not ready to fully accept gay people and lifestyle in all aspects of society, and some people never will. The fact that there is gay tolerance is a good thing, but tolerance doesn't mean support: It means "i don't like it but i will let it slide" and that's what those groups are not getting. They are doing too much too soon and pushing people too far and there was bound to be a backlash in Massachusetts sooner or later. And now it's here. This might get ugly!
