Posted on 09/08/2005 1:40:07 PM PDT by worldclass
Lexington Police were forced to protect David Parker, fearing for his personal safety, when hundreds of angry pro-gay activists, including Lexington public officials and local liberal clergy, gathered to counter-demonstrate against parents and supporters of David Parker who were holding a rally on historic Lexington Battle Green.

At least 200 pro-gay counter-demonstrators supporting his ban from school property first gathered at the nearby Visitor's Center, and then lined Bedford Street (bordering the Battle Green) with anti-Parker signs and slogans.
There is no way I would send my child to a public school in Masachusetts.
Nothing is more vicious than a snarling, angry homo...
There is no way I would send my kids to public school anywhere these days -- and I don't.
Don't goad them, they'll scratch your eyes out.
Let it be known that the school district violated state law by not informing Mr. Parker of the inclusion of Homosexuality into the curriculum. It is also a violation of state law to retaliate against parents and their children that wish to withdraw from the class. All city employees who participated in the protest aimed at Mr. Parker violated that law.
Once again the Right proves to the world that it is full of hate and....oh...wait a second....nevermind.
Make that MA Gen. Law 71 sec 32A.
Lexington, Mass? There are a few Lexingtons, so I didn't know which one.
Homosexual Agenda Ping.
What really amazes me is that so many people - and unfortunately some here on FR claiming to be conservatives - do not see the homosexual activists for what they are.
They say they want "tolerance" but they won't tolerate anyone who disagrees with their plans.
They claim they just want "respect" but they have no respect for others who do not share their POV.
They spout words like "diversity" but they really want complete and total obediance to their program, no dissention allowed.
Shades of Nazism.
Freepmail me if you want on/off this pinglist.
Pro-homosexual activists hold counter-demonstration to intimidate David Parker rally participants, and support his ban from all school property. Elected officials and local clergy take part. It's utterly amazing how obsessed these people are, and how possessed by their intolerance.
Getting started. First, they gathered in front of the Visitors' Center across the street. It appears a podium was set up for speakers.
In our faces. After that, they lined up along Bedford Street, right across from the Parker gathering, to hold signs, intimidate, etc.
Outpouring of public anger and intolerance. The line stretched over a block long. It included very young kids, adolescents, and adults.
Raising kids to hate others. Rev. Bill Clark again, along the street. The kids' signs have particularly insidious messages: "Support ALL Our Children, Families, Schools" and "Anyone Can Go to School." Note that these imply that David Parker does not support all children, and that he believes that not everyone can go to school. This is the angry mindset these people have, and they're transmitting it to young children.
Top elected school official. Lexington School Committee Chairman Helen Cohen was not pleased to get her picture taken by us as she demonstrated against David Parker, and she turned her sign aside so we couldn't see it.
Depends on which angle the goad is coming from.
Tolerance and diversity bump!
Go! Dave Parker! :)
We've got most of ours out of public schools and are working on getting the rest out.
There is only so much of this nonsense you can take. The schools aren't going to take us seriously unless they have to compete for students, so I think building alternative education sources should be job one for churches and anyone else out there that has a building and some vision.
In this case, such an action would be homophobic. That might be illegal there or a hate crime.
A very excellent point.
Did they ever remove Martin Luther King, Jr. for his own protection?
The civil rights of David Parker to peacefully congregate were violated by the unruly response of the pro-gay agitators.
