Funny; I didn't read it that way at all. I read that he was seeking revenge on individuals in the Out group (although perhaps unconsciously seeking help); but in his confusion, sank his own reputation with other gays.
The unitended consequences -- the letter posted on the Internet by pro-family groups -- apparently hadn't occurred to him when he cooked up his scheme to harm the Out group.
Well, I had read on the AFTAH site some months ago that he had listed practices of the Out group which included charges to the police that they had been predatory and had served alcohol to minors. It was my understanding that he was in earnest, although maybe I did not read carefully enough. He did wind up accused himself of sex with a minor, and then began to go after MassResistance.
