Brian Camenker: Schools 'Peer Pressure' And 'Brainwash' Kids To Be Gay

In a discussion yesterday about how marriage equality is destroying Massachusetts, anti-LGBT activists Brian Camenker and Sandy Rios suggested that more kids in Massachusetts are gay and bisexual because of the “brainwashing” and “peer pressure” taking place in public schools.

“It’s a huge percentage,” Rios said. “It’s just amazing, they’re experimenting and being exposed to this stuff, things they would have never thought of, so they are trying it.”

Camenker said that he is familiar with kids “who have gone into this lifestyle because of the peer pressure in the schools, and I also know kids that got into it and because of the proper intervention by their parents got out of it and are leading normal lives now.” He added that “often just bringing a kid to a normal environment for a while will help straighten the boy or girl out, just not being subjugated to the brainwash.”

Anti-Gay Pundits: Ignoring 'Disgusting' Homosexuality Is 'Like Trying To Talk About The Holocaust Without Showing Pictures'

Brian Camenker of the anti-LGBT group MassResistance appeared on “Sandy Rios In The Morning” yesterday to discuss how marriage equality is ruining Massachusetts, a problem that Camenker previously described in great detail to “The Daily Show.”  Rios, the American Family Association’s governmental affairs director, said that people need to know the facts about gay marriage’s supposedly disastrous consequences since people “watch HGTV and they see gay couples happily cohabitating and they don’t understand what’s behind all of this.”

“This is kind of like trying to talk about the Holocaust without showing pictures,” Rios said. “They killed Jews. So that’s bad, but if you don't understand what they actually did — you need to know, ladies and gentlemen, what is actually being taught to the kids because really, some of it Brian can’t even say, most of it you can’t even say.”

Rios was especially upset about a pamphlet on sexual health designed for the gay community, known as “The Little Black Book.” While the pamphlet is geared towards adults, Camenker said that it was pushed on children.

“This book is focused on teenagers and it tells them very graphically how to perform the most ridiculous, horrible homosexual sex acts,” Camenker said. “There’s no way I can tell you this because they are so disgusting…. You’ll get sick just reading them.”

Anti-Gay Activists Urge Parents To Keep Kids Home On Anti-Bullying 'Day Of Silence'

A coalition of anti-gay groups is once again urging parents to keep their children out of school on the annual anti-bullying “Day of Silence.” The Illinois Family Institute published the call to action on its website today, signed by activists including Matt Barber, Concerned Women for America’s Penny Nance, Americans For Truth About Homosexuality’s Peter LaBarbera, Scott Lively, Linda Harvey, Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver, and MassResistance’s Brian Camenker.

Calling the GLSEN-sponsored event “the queen of all the numerous homosexuality-affirming activities that take place in public schools,” the activists allege that it is meant to “indoctrinate 16-year-olds.”

“We must demonstrate the boldness and perseverance of the Left if we hope to stop the relentless appropriation of public education for the promotion of homosexuality,” they exhort.

The Day of Silence has long been a target of anti-gay group’ efforts to crack down on anti-bullying efforts in schools.

The Day of Silence is the queen of all the numerous homosexuality-affirming activities that take place in public schools. It started in one university and then like a cancer metastasized to thousands of high schools, and then into middle schools. Before long it will take place in elementary schools. Leftists know that it’s easier to indoctrinate 16-year-olds than 36-year-olds and easier still to indoctrinate 6-year-olds.

GLSEN promotes the Day of Silence as an “anti-bullying” effort. If it were solely about eradicating bullying, everyone—liberals and conservatives alike—would support it. But it’s not.

The Day of Silence exploits government schools, captive audiences, and anti-bullying sentiment to advance the Left’s social, moral, and political beliefs and goals. GLSEN seeks to advance the belief that all public expressions of moral disapproval of homosexual activity are bullying.

A coalition of pro-family organizations is once again urging parents to keep their children home from school on the Day of Silence if their school administrations will be allowing students to politicize instructional time by refusing to speak. This is the only organized national effort to oppose any pro-homosexual activity or event in public schools.

The absence of conservative influence within the culture on issues related to homosexuality is to some extent the fault of conservatives. Ignorance, fear, and an astounding lack of perseverance on the parts of conservatives have turned our cultural institutions—including public education—into the playground of “progressives.” Our passivity has enabled homosexual activists and their ideological allies to become social, political, and pedagogical bullies. Evidence of that is everywhere, including in schools on the GLSEN’s annual April school event, the Day of Silence.

We must demonstrate the boldness and perseverance of the Left if we hope to stop the relentless appropriation of public education for the promotion of homosexuality.

Religious Right Activist Admits That Marriage Equality Bans Are Like Anti-Miscegenation Laws

Brian Camenker of the anti-LGBT group MassResistance spoke to the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios this week about how same-sex marriage has wreaked havoc on Massachusetts since it became legal in 2004, declaring that ten years of marriage equality has been “terrible” for the Bay State.

“It is very, very scary. It has permeated the public school system, it has permeated the public health system, the legal system,” he said. “It has basically overwhelmed everything. It’s been a nightmare. It’s been very bad.”

Camenker’s remarks didn’t come as much of a surprise given that he once told The Daily Show that marriage equality would somehow contribute to homelessness, higher crime rates, and poorer air quality.

What did come as a surprise was Camenker conceding the point that bans on same-sex marriage are similar to laws banning interracial marriage ... and he did so by defending the constitutionality of anti-miscegenation laws!

On the face of it, the Fourteenth Amendment says that everybody will be treated equally, that the law will treat everyone equally. Well, the law treats everyone equally; everyone can only marry someone of the opposite sex. That’s it. There is no Fourteenth Amendment problem unless you stretch it to such ridiculous lengths and twist it around to claim there is. But yes, every person can only marry someone of the opposite sex. Now someone may say that it was the same issue with the miscegenation laws. And that’s true. The miscegenation laws were not a violation of the Fourteenth Amendment because they applied to everybody. As an aside, I was living in the South at the time when the miscegenation laws were struck down and the interesting thing about that was, nobody paid any attention to it, nobody cared, it was like page 25 in the newspaper, there weren’t these signature drives or meetings and gatherings. Nobody really cared at all. Here it is a much different thing because it really is a moral issue.

The Supreme Court in Loving v. Virginia struck down anti-miscegenation laws on the basis that they violated the Fourteenth Amendment. It was indeed a “moral issue” at the time, as many religious conservatives frequently alleged that interracial marriages were contrary to biblical teachings and natural law.

Some Americans, disproportionately white, still oppose interracial relationships today.

Equally preposterous is Camenker’s claim that “nobody cared” about the Loving decision. Many states have attempted to keep their anti-miscegenation laws on the books, and interracial couples have faced a long history of violence and discrimination.

At least Camenker, unlike other Religious Right activists, is being consistent in his opposition to the reasoning behind the Loving ruling and court decisions in favor of marriage equality for same-sex couples.

Camenker: Gay Student Clubs Love To Recruit 'Kids From Christian Backgrounds'

Gordon Klingenschmitt recently interviewed Brian Camenker of the anti-gay group MassResistance on his "Pray In Jesus Name" program where the two men warned that LGBT-themed clubs in public schools are bent on recruiting "vulnerable" Christian students.

When Klingenschmitt asked Camenker if there is an effort afoot in Massachusetts public schools to use taxpayer dollars "to recruit the children of Christians" into homosexuality, Camenker assured him that there certainly is.

"I have seen over the years, a movement of, in general, where you have kids who are very vulnerable, maybe having troubles at home, maybe having their own issues and the gay clubs will say 'the reason you're not fitting in is because you're really gay,'" Camenker said. "And they will take them under their wing and they will persuade them to come out because this is who you really are. And pretty soon these kids are getting involved in these really horrible behaviors, horrible things at the meetings. We've seen it up close and we've seen the anxiety that the parents go through when their kids are suddenly taken over by this."

"Yes, they love getting kids from Christian backgrounds," he continued. "That seems to be something that they particularly enjoy to do":

Mat Staver To Headline Jamaica Conference Hosted By Group Defending Anti-Sodomy Laws

American Religious Right leaders Mat Staver and Judith Reisman are scheduled to be featured speakers at a conference in Jamaica this weekend hosted by a group that has been working to preserve the country’s criminal ban on consensual gay sex.

The annual conference, hosted by the Jamaica Coalition for a Healthy Society, will focus on how “[c]ontemporary society has become increasingly hostile to the traditional definitions of marriage and family” and Staver, the head of Liberty Counsel, will discuss “global legal trends impacting the institution of the family.”

JCHS’s conference has drawn prominent American anti-gay activists before. In 2012, two top lawyers for the Alliance Defending Freedom spoke at the conference, one of whom defended Jamaica’s anti-sodomy law, calling homosexuality “harmful not only spiritually and psychologically, but also physically.” Last year, Americans For Truth About Homosexuality’s Peter LaBarbera made an appearance at the conference, urging Jamaicans: “Do not be like us, do not be like Britain, do not sit idly by as so-called ‘LGBT activists’ manipulate words and laws to achieve dominance in your country.”

LaBarbera distanced himself from the U.S. State Department’s support for LGBT rights around the world, telling attendees (as transcribed by a Buzzfeed reporter who attended):

I do not stand with my government. I’m a patriotic American, but I do not stand with the current United States government in its promotion of homosexuality and gender confusion. But I do stand with the Jamaican people … I pray that you will learn from our mistakes and from lessons of history and avoid the inevitable moral corruption and health hazards and the danger to young people that come from capitulating to this sin movement that calls itself gay. It is almost now can be predicted with 100 percent accuracy, if the law is a teacher: If you take down this law, it will only lead to more demands. Appeasement does not work.

MassResistance’s Brian Camenker has also headlined a rally for the group.

The groups organizing the conference have opposed efforts to overturn the country’s anti-sodomy laws, which impose up to 10 years imprisonment for gay sex. Jamaica CAUSE, a cosponsor, organized rallies earlier this year to oppose an effort to overturn the law. The main sponsor, Jamaica Coalition for a Healthy Society, also supports keeping the laws. On its website, JCHS provides a document called “Frequently Asked Questions About The Buggery Law” that attributes homosexuality to “economic reasons, direct Satanic influence, media and entertainment enticement, and experiences during incarceration” and cautions, “If determining human rights is separated from morality and based on individual freedom without any restraints, all perversions will in due time become ‘rights’.”

In a section on countries with greater freedom for LGBT people, the group adopts the American Right’s persecution messaging:

Why is it so important to certain countries, such as the UK, that Jamaica removes the buggery law?

Homosexuals in those countries have gained political power and so are able to use the machinery of the state to achieve their ends. It is interesting to note that the aim in these countries is not just that the buggery law is repealed, but that all types of sexual behaviour, including pedophilia and bestiality, should be eventually legalized as alternative sexual orientations. Further, the removal of the buggery law often results in attacks on freedom of speech and religion so that those who speak out against homosexuality are discriminated against and victimized. They want all types of sexual behavior to be legal.

JCHS defends Jamaica’s anti-sodomy, or “buggery,” law this way:

Since the buggery law is difficult to police shouldn’t it be removed from the books? Laws have multiple roles. (i) instruction on right behaviour that benefit individuals and society (ii) deterrence against wrong behaviour (iii) punishment for wrong behaviour. The law of the land bears witness to that which the state approves. This is important because this determines, for example, what can and can’t be taught to children in schools. Laws against murder, littering and traffic violations have not prevented these activities but that is no reason for these laws to be removed. Because a law cannot be policed does not mean it should be removed.

The group also provides images like this as “media resources”:

MassResistance: Gays Seek To 'Criminalize Christian Belief' And 'Homosexualize Children'

The anti-LGBT group MassResistance is upset with companies like Staples and CVS for sponsoring an upcoming Human Rights Campaign fundraiser, and is accusing the businesses of supporting the criminalization of Christianity.

“Most people don’t know that major corporations in America are funding the massive push to introduce homosexuality and transgenderism into the elementary school grades, pass laws across the country to criminalize Christian belief in the workplace, force ‘gay marriage’ through the federal courts, viciously harass pro-family groups, and much more,” the group said in a statement on Sunday.

Before asking conservatives to contact HRC’s donors, MassResistance warns parents to fear the day “when your child comes home from school reading homosexual books.”

Most people don’t know that major corporations in America are funding the massive push to introduce homosexuality and transgenderism into the elementary school grades, pass laws across the country to criminalize Christian belief in the workplace, force “gay marriage” through the federal courts, viciously harass pro-family groups, and much more. They're companies you likely buy from.



1. Fascist-like campaigns to harass and threaten individual pro-family leaders, their families, and their organizations



2. Funding to homosexualize children in the nation’s public schools



3. Funding and grassroots roots lobbying for laws across the country to criminalize Christian belief and morality and push transgenderism into public places



What are you going to do when your child comes home from school reading homosexual books? Are you going to be the next one who is sued -- for a huge amount -- for standing up for your beliefs at your own business? How do you feel watching federal judges force “gay marriage” in state after state as the voters watch helplessly?

Brian Camenker: Gay Rights Activists Orchestrating High School Students Coming Out As Gay

Today, the American Family Associaton’s OneNewsNow interviews Brian Camenker of the Massachusetts anti-gay group MassResistance, who warns that when a high school student comes out as gay it is all part of a strategy carefully orchestrated by gay rights activists “seeking to draw susceptible students into their ranks”:

A Massachusetts family values advocate says it's no accident that so many students announce that they are homosexuals.

Brian Camenker of Mass Resistance says these incidents of students “coming out” are the result of a carefully calculated strategy by homosexual activists. He says, historically, school administrators eagerly work with activists who are seeking to draw susceptible students into their ranks.

“We saw one situation at Brookline High School in Brookline, Massachusetts, where the principal actually participated in an assembly where they encouraged kids to announce that they were coming out,” he tells OneNewsNow.

He says the activists prey on pupils who are the most vulnerable.

Camenker says it's not just in Massachusetts - this is happening all across the nation. He says parents need to know about these recruitment programs and demand that they be kept out of their children’s schools.

AFA Poll Inquires: 'What Is The Primary Objective Of Homosexual Activists Who Target Youths?'

The American Family Association’s OneNewsNow published an article today titled “Gay agenda creeping into all curriculum,” in which MassResistance’s Brian Camenker warns that the gay-rights group GLSEN, in addition to organizing “emotionally poisonous and physically dangerous” Gay-Straight Alliances, is plotting to make kids “feel comfortable around homosexuality and those issues, feel comfortable coming out, feel comfortable taking on those behaviors, feeling comfortable with everything about it.”

The article is accompanied by an insightful reader poll:

MassResistance Claims Gay-Straight Alliances Are 'Emotionally Poisonous And Physically Dangerous'

The anti-LGBT group MassResistance is out with a new “report” denouncing Gay-Straight Alliances in schools, warning that the clubs are “emotionally poisonous and physically dangerous to vulnerable kids.”

The group also suggests that adult supervisors of GSAs trick kids with “serious psychological issues” into thinking that they are gay.

“They take troubled kids and tell them that if they feel ‘different’ or that they ‘don’t fit in’ then they’re probably really ‘gay’ or ‘transgender,’” the group alleges, adding that “these kinds of ‘clubs’ lead kids into engaging in perverse sexual activities.”

The homosexual-transgender movement is working hard to indoctrinate schoolchildren as young as possible. By far, the most effective way is to get them into school-based "gay" clubs that are run by activist, often radical, adults, but though otherwise unsupervised. They have been working at this for several years (see our 2008 report) but are now ramping up their efforts considerably.



In our experience going back nearly twenty years working with parents and kids, the GSAs in the schools are emotionally poisonous and physically dangerous to vulnerable kids, many of whom have serious psychological issues to deal with. And GSAs are often run by radical “gay” adults who themselves are psychologically dysfunctional.

GSAs persuade students that homosexuality, transgenderism, etc., is perfectly normal to engage in. They take troubled kids and tell them that if they feel “different” or that they “don’t fit in” then they’re probably really “gay” or “transgender.” This causes enormous trauma down the road. We’ve seen that these kinds of “clubs” lead kids into engaging in perverse sexual activities.

But additionally, a purpose of GSAs is to indoctrinate the kids (including those calling themselves “straight”) in the radical ideas of the LGBT movement, which they term “queer theory.” Most people are not aware just how extreme this is. Then the GSA leaders have the kids spread those ideas to the rest of the school through events like the “Day of Silence”, “Gay History Month”, and “Transgender Awareness Day.”

When getting this training, the kids are told that this helps them become “allies” of the LGBTs. The concept of being an “ally” pushed very hard throughout the schools. It becomes another identity for the kids in their fight for so-called social justice.

Brian Camenker: 'Massively Destructive' GLSEN Pushes 'Psychologically Penetrating' School Programs

MassResistance head Brian Camenker is furious that several corporations are sponsoring a youth summit organized by the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN). The Religious Right activist told WorldNetDaily yesterday that the companies are supporting “massively destructive and offensive things.”

Earlier this week, Camenker's group issued a report warning of GLSEN’s “radical homosexual and transgender psychological propaganda” in schools: “It has set up ‘gay straight alliance’ student clubs (GSAs) inside thousands of high schools (and even some middle schools) across the country. GLSEN pushes a wide range of psychologically penetrating homosexual and transgender programs activities into the schools, such as the controversial ‘Day of Silence.’”

“It should outrageous and terrifying to families that these companies, which they trust to do business with, spend their money on such massively destructive and offensive things such as GLSEN,” said Brian Camenker, founder and leader of Mass Resistance.

“Over the years, they are probably the most vicious and aggressive group pushing the homosexual agenda in schools,” he said.



“They train kids that parents are stupid and ignorant and it is gay activists that are really the wise ones,” he said.

The instructions are “coming to your school soon,” the organization advised.

GLSEN, Mass Resistance said, is the nation’s largest homosexual and transgender activist organization working inside schools in all 50 states.

“It has set up ‘gay straight alliance’ student clubs (GSAs) inside thousands of high schools (and even some middle schools) across the country. GLSEN pushes a wide range of psychologically penetrating homosexual and transgender programs activities into the schools, such as the controversial ‘Day of Silence.’ It also directly organizes and trains teachers to integrate their techniques throughout the curriculum. Founded in the early 1990s by super-activist Kevin Jennings, it has a multi-million dollar budget, lavishly funded by corporate America and private foundations.”

The report says taxpayer dollars for the events come from the Massachusetts Commission for GLBT Youth.

“Unfortunately, most people – and especially most parents – have no idea the extent of the radical homosexual and transgender psychological propaganda being pushed at children in their schools, much less what’s going on behind the scenes. We hope to begin to remedy that,” the Mass Resistance report said.

Camenker: Gay Rights Advocates Will Kill Kids, Turn America Into Nazi Germany, North Korea And Pol Pot's Cambodia

Brian Camenker of the anti-gay group MassResistance joined Voice of Christian Youth America’s Vic Eliason this week for a program on Crosstalk called “Stopping the LGBT War on Children.”

Eliason told one caller that he should oppose gay rights because he wouldn’t sit back if he “saw somebody molesting children.” “The molestation of children through organizations such as what Brian has been talking about here are literally declaring war on children,” he said.

Speaking about legislation in Virginia and Massachusetts that, if passed, would curb “ex-gay” therapy for minors, Camenker called the bills “destructive” and “a death sentence for kids.”

“We’re talking about these explicit homosexual books and philosophies being paraded, then on top of that you have the media that somehow feels that in order to be politically correct you got to have homosexual guests, homosexual actors, homosexual films, all of this stuff,” Eliason lamented. “It ain’t cool unless it’s gay.”

Camenker agreed, calling support for gay rights “insane” and like something out of the Soviet Union: “The homosexual movement does a good job of instilling that fear of harassing people and threatening them terribly so you don’t have anybody speaking out — we do — but when people start speaking out this whole house of cards will start to fall.”

The MassResistance leader also warned that gay rights advocates will turn the U.S. into Nazi Germany, Mao’s China, Pol Pot’s Cambodia and North Korea, agreeing with a caller who urged straight people to fight back with their own “Heterosexual Pride Parades.”

Camenker: You think of what it must have been like in Europe in the 1930s or in the communist countries in the 1920s or in Mao’s communist China or Cambodia where just complete madness was reigning and large numbers of people were part of it. This is what it must have been like where you had complete insanity going on and people buy into it.

Eliason: I mean Massachusetts apparently has an official state GLBT commission. Is that correct?

Camenker: Yes it does.



Caller: Those of us who are heterosexual and/or ex-gay need to come out and have some ‘Heterosexual Pride Parades’ and so forth. I was listening to a talk show on the radio driving home last night and they brought up the Michael Sam situation. All four panelists were pro-homosexual, not one conservative or Christian or opposing viewpoint allowed. I had to stop listening to it. You know, North Korea used to use reeducation camps, China too during the Cultural Revolution. We have that, I’m a nurse and I know what it’s called, it’s called diversity and tolerance training. It’s cultural Marxism pure and simple.

Camenker: I think you’re right, I think you’re absolutely right on all of those points. Believe me, I’ve seen it myself. You are one hundred percent correct.

US Conservative Groups Supported Nigerian Anti-Gay Law That Led to Wave of Arrests

The Associated Press is reporting that “dozens of gay men” have been arrested in northern Nigeria as a result of a new law strengthening the country’s prohibition on homosexuality, in what public health groups fear will be a setback to efforts to fight AIDS.

LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) — Police, working off a list of 168 suspects purportedly obtained through torture, are arresting dozens of gay men in Nigeria's northern Bauchi state, human rights activists said Tuesday.

A new law in Nigeria, dubbed the "Jail the Gays" bill, is encouraging the persecution of gays and will endanger programs fighting HIV-AIDS in the gay community, said Dorothy Aken'Ova, executive director of Nigeria's International Center for Reproductive Health and Sexual Rights.

On Monday, President Goodluck Jonathan's office confirmed that the Nigerian leader signed the Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act that criminalizes gay marriage, gay organizations and anyone working with or promoting them.

CBS notes that “sodomy has been illegal in Nigeria for many years...in some parts of Nigeria’s Muslim-majority north where strict Sharia law is upheld, gays and lesbians risk being stoned to death if they are caught.”

This seems like a good time, then, to look back at the American religious right’s support for Nigeria’s harsh penalties for its LGBT residents and opposition to Obama administration efforts to protect LGBT rights abroad.

In 2011, when then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced that the Obama administration would work to protect LGBT rights abroad – including in places like Nigeria that criminalize homosexuality -- the religious right exploded in anger. Pat Robertson called the policy “appalling” and warned of God’s wrath in response. Radio host Janet Mefferd cited Nigeria’s anti-gay laws in a rant against the Obama administration’s policy, saying “I don’t see that this is something that the United States has to jump in on because it’s such a huge global tragedy. It’s crazy.” The Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute also cited Nigeria’s move to tighten criminal sanctions on homosexuality in its opposition to the Obama administration policy.

Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber, the anti-gay group MassResistance, and Family Watch International’s Sharon Slater have also supported Nigeria’s anti-gay laws at various stages.

We wonder if any of these groups will comment about this wave of arrests.

Camenker: Victims Of Gay Bashing Had It Coming

Brian Camenker of MassResistance chatted with Mission America’s Linda Harvey over the weekend to discuss his article about how gay rights activists and athletes will “smuggle pro-LGBT propaganda into Russia” during the Olympics.

The anti-gay activist said he isn’t sure how many athletes would go along with the efforts to protest Russia’s law criminalizing pro-gay rights speech, explaining that gay people aren’t athletes because the “the psychological issues that are going through you in the homosexual lifestyle” undermines their “stability [and] alertness.”

If you follow sports much you’ll notice there are almost no homosexual athletes in the major sports, certainly not in the professional sports and none that I know of in the college sports except for very, very minor roles. It’s interesting because if you go into any public school you see a large percentage of the teachers, at least where I live, are out homosexuals. I think that, my own analysis of that is that it’s so difficult to become an athlete at that level that the psychological issues that are going through you in the homosexual lifestyle just don’t cut it. Because you just need this very high degree of stability, alertness, everything else, so you see almost no athletes, you know, homosexuals in the professional sports or the high level, football leagues or baseball or anything like that, almost none.

Camenker also told Harvey that he hopes Russian authorities will stop LGBT rights organizers before any demonstrations occur…just as Russian intelligence alerted the US to the Boston bombers. “What I really think will happen is the Russians will do a good enough job of figuring out who is going to do what to stop it beforehand because they don’t want to be embarrassed,” Camenker said. “I’ll bet you they’re smart enough to effectively stop it, they were the ones that figured out the Boston Marathon terrorists were terrorists long before the FBI did.”

Harvey defended Russia’s new anti-gay laws and insisted that no “logical” person would believe such laws are related to the rise in homophobic violence, doubting that such violence is even occurring.

On the other hand, Camenker didn’t doubt that violence directed at gay people in Russia is taking place…but said it is the fault of gay people: “If you’re going to do something that most of the population considers bad or immoral or disgusting in public, you’re going to get a certain reaction. I think that they push that as far as they can and sometimes you just can’t do it.”

Harvey agreed, maintaining that “there’s some provocation going on” from Russia’s gay community, while Camenker said gay couples being affectionate in public and the people who attack them are two sides of the same coin.

“The natural way people react to homosexuality — outside of all the diversity training — is a certain amount of revulsion. So if two men start kissing in the public street, you can expect a certain reaction from people,” Camenker explained. “I think that there is probably a lot of, shall we say, reckless behavior on that side and I’m sure on the other side there’s probably a lot of wanton, running around, just beating people up, which you don’t want to have either.”

He even compared gay-bashing Russians to gay rights advocates in the US, lamenting that American law enforcement doesn’t go after them for all the “horrible things [they do] in public.”

Harvey: They’re maintaining that people that are homosexual, who in anyway display that they are homosexual in Russia are beat up by gangs, do you have any documentation that that is actually happening or that it is actually happening and is not being punished as it ought to be or is just hype by them?

Camenker: Well, it’s hard to say. I would say that a lot of it is probably true. The natural way people react to homosexuality — outside of all the diversity training — is a certain amount of revulsion. So if two men start kissing in the public street, you can expect a certain reaction from people.

Harvey: From certain levels of people, thugs and the people inclined to violence anyway, right?

Camenker: I think that there is probably a lot of, shall we say, reckless behavior on that side and I’m sure on the other side there’s probably a lot of wanton, running around, just beating people up, which you don’t want to have either.

Harvey: And it’s punishable in Russia like it is anywhere else. Of course it is Russia, we’re talking the way they are, so.

Camenker: It’s sort of interesting, apparently in Russia you get away with that but here it is just exactly the opposite, the homosexuals can disrupt churches, they can disrupt anything, they can do all kinds of horrible things in public as they’ve done at events where I’ve been and nothing happens. I would imagine that there probably is some of that and it’s unfortunate.

Harvey: But that doesn’t mean that this is a bad law, it means that this is a law that protects children and that will be a separate issue, and if we were dealing with logical people and a logical movement they will see it as a separate issue if they were being just and fair but they’re not just and fair.

Camenker: And the other thing is, and it even is true here, if you’re going to do something that most of the population considers bad or immoral or disgusting in public, you’re going to get a certain reaction. I think that they push that as far as they can and sometimes you just can’t do it.

Harvey: Right. There’s some provocation going on. Not justifying violence in any way for all of these people listening and wanting to spin this the way they will want to do.

Right Wing Round-Up - 9/3/13

MassResistance: Kissing 'Provoked' Violent Anti-Gay Attack in Moscow

MassResistance is celebrating the approval of harsh anti-gay legislation in Nigeria and Russia, and even blaming gay rights advocates for a brutal attack they suffered in Moscow. The group cited an Associated Press article about the Russian bill, which bans gay “propaganda” and gay rights material, and a vicious attack against opponents who were staging a “kissing rally”:

Before the vote, gay rights activists attempted to hold a "kissing rally" outside the State Duma, located across the street from Red Square in central Moscow, but they were attacked by hundreds of Orthodox Christian activists and members of pro-Kremlin youth groups. The mostly burly young men with closely cropped hair pelted them with eggs while shouting obscenities and homophobic slurs.

Riot police moved in, detaining more than two dozen protesters, almost all of them gay rights activists. Some who were not detained were beaten by masked men on a central street about a mile away.

But according to MassResistance, such violence was “provoked by homosexual activists,” who were only kissing.

“[M]any countries are starting to recognize the destructive aspects of the homosexual movement and taking concrete steps to deal with it,” the group writes. “Although in some cases the punishments are more draconian than Westerners are comfortable with, there is a sense that these nations do not want their cultural decisions dictated by the United States and other Western countries.”

The anti-gay organization even credited Scott Lively, who also helped craft anti-gay laws in Uganda, for the Russian legislation:

The Russian parliament (the Duma), voted 436-0 for a bill which bans giving information on homosexuality to minors or holding "gay pride" rallies. It is expected by insiders to pass easily in the upper house and be signed by Vladimir Putin. Just before the vote, homosexual activists held a public "kiss-in" outside the parliament building, which incited a heated reaction by traditionalists who were also there.

The bill is a culmination of events going back to 2007, when Massachusetts-based Pastor Scott Lively went on a 50-city speaking tour of Russia on pro-family issues. Lively subsequently published a widely distributed open letter to the Russian people warning them about allowing the homosexual agenda to become "mainstream" in that country.



Obviously, it is unfortunate that there was violence over this, though apparently it was provoked by homosexual activists.

It's expected that the United States, Britain, and other Western countries, which have formal foreign policies calling for protection of homosexual activism throughout the world, will announce their intention to impose sanctions or other action against Russia over this. It would appear that the Russians aren't worried about it.

As we reported last week regarding the recently passed bill in Nigeria outlawing homosexual activism, many countries are starting to recognize the destructive aspects of the homosexual movement and taking concrete steps to deal with it. Although in some cases the punishments are more draconian than Westerners are comfortable with, there is a sense that these nations do not want their cultural decisions dictated by the United States and other Western countries.

MassResistance Praises Nigerian Bill Criminalizing Homosexuality and Gay Rights Advocacy

Nigeria’s legislature recently passed a harsh anti-gay law that would punish same-sex couples and the “public show of same-sex amorous relationships” with long jail sentences and make the advocacy of gay rights illegal. The head of Nigeria’s Human Rights Commission warned that the legislation would even criminalize public displays of affection between family members of the same sex.

But the anti-gay group MassResistance is quite pleased and praised Nigeria for “taking bold steps to fight back” against attempts “to subvert public morality.”

“The breakdown in society caused by the homosexual movement seems to bring more general social destruction in African cultures than in the West,” the group said in a blog post. “And nation after nation has had enough.”

The government of Nigeria, which has one of the world's largest populations of AIDS sufferers, is outraged by what they feel is the Western world's efforts to subvert public morality. They are now taking bold steps to fight back.

Almost predictably, Great Britain and the United States are threatening to take action against Nigeria for having the nerve to challenge Western political correctness. A strong bill passes the Nigerian legislature

On Thursday, May 30 the Nigerian House passed a bill which outlaws and provides jail terms for homosexual activism, public homosexual behavior, and anyone entering into or conducting a "gay marriage." An identical bill passed the Senate in 2011. It now goes to the President.

As the Associated Press reported on Thursday:

Nigeria's House of Representatives voted Thursday to ban gay marriage and outlaw any groups actively supporting gay rights, endorsing a measure that also calls for 10-year prison sentences for any "public show" of affection by a same-sex couple.

Representatives appeared to unanimously approve the proposal in a voice vote, sending it immediately to President Goodluck Jonathan for him to potentially sign into law in Africa's most populous nation. It wasn't immediately clear if Jonathan would sign the measure, though gays and lesbians already face public ridicule and possible prison sentences in Nigeria.

While Western diplomats declined to immediately comment, the United Kingdom already has threatened to stop aid to nations that discriminate against gays. But those threats appear unlikely to assuage the desire of Nigerian authorities to further criminalize homosexuality, part of a wave of such laws in African nations eager to legislate against what they believe is a challenge of their traditional values by the West.

. . .In 2011, U.S. President Barack Obama issued a similar directiveasking officials to "ensure that U.S. diplomacy and foreign assistance promote and protect the human rights of" gays, lesbians and the transgendered. That included having diplomats "combat the criminalization" of being gay by foreign governments. . .


The Obama Administration even has an "openly gay" State Department official who specializes in dealing with African and Asian countries that are deemed "hostile" to the LGBT worldwide agenda.

In many ways, the Africans are feeling the brunt of the world-wide homosexual activist movement even more than the United States. They are dealing with the huge spread of AIDS. But also, the breakdown in society caused by the homosexual movement seems to bring more general social destruction in African cultures than in the West. And nation after nation has had enough.

Luckily, they're not intimidated by the West. We'll let you know what happens.

MassResistance Demands Red Sox Disinvite Gay Fans

The Massachusetts anti-gay group MassResistance, which previously called on the Boston Red Sox to apologize for making an “It Gets Better” video, is now demanding that the team cancel a gay pride event. The group put out a statement attacking the baseball team for “celebrating a week of obscene perversion” that features a “hideous, obscene, and outright disgusting display of perverse activities.”

Celebrating a week of obscene perversion

The Red Sox have been around long enough to know that "Pride Week" in Boston is a hideous, obscene, and outright disgusting display of perverse activities. (Plus, in recent years, more young people have been drawn in through Boston Pride's management of Massachusetts Youth Pride every May.)

And the Boston Red Sox organization are not only going to celebrate it at their ballpark, but will be financially supporting it from their ticket sales.

In an interview with the American Family Association’s news service OneNewsNow, the MassResistance’s president Brian Camenker called on fans to contact the team urging them to cancel “Pride Night at Fenway Park.” Camenker insists that he is just thinking about the children:

Homosexual-rights group Boston Pride says it is partnering with Fenway Park to sponsor "Pride Night," but a search of the Red Sox and Fenway Park websites by OneNewsNow did not show the event listed.

However, there is one event listed for Thursday night at Fenway Park - the Red Sox are kicking off their June after-school celebration, "Calling All Kids."

"Baseball is largely for kids, so why should homosexual activism be part of that?" asks Brian Camenker, president of the pro-family organization MassResistance.

"And you know a lot of just regular fans don't want to be part of that kind of thing when they go out for a baseball game," he adds.

"It's certainly nothing you expect." Camenker says the Red Sox organization is "going out of their way" to support the homosexual cause, including donating a percentage of Thursday night's proceeds to Boston Pride.

A special section of Fenway reportedly will also be designated for homosexuals who attend the ballgame.

"I called [the Red Sox] up and they don't seem to see how this is going to bother people," says Camenker. "They need to hear from people."
