Parent Alleges Harassment for Exposing 'Fistgate' ^ | 2/06/03 | Lawrence Morahan

Posted on 02/07/2003 4:24:38 AM PST by kattracks - Lawyers from a homosexual advocacy group took depositions from a Massachusetts parent this week, almost three years after he first exposed "Fistgate," a state-sponsored workshop in which educators instructed teens in graphic homosexual sex.

The deposition of Brian Camenker, taken Tuesday by lawyers for the Boston-based Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders, is an effort to put parents under financial strain and to discourage others around the country from bringing similar workshops to light, Camenker charged.

"If they are able to be able to beat us in Massachusetts, they can continue to hound any parent who gets in their way," said Camenker, president of the Parents Rights Coalition.

Two Massachusetts Department of Education staffers lost their jobs because of their involvement in the state-funded workshop held at Tufts University in March 2000, called "What They Don't Tell You About Queer Sex and Sexuality in Health Class." The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network co-sponsored the workshop.

Homosexual advocacy groups have been pursuing lawsuits against Camenker and Scott Whiteman, another parent, for secretly recording, exposing and publicizing the event, in which instructors encouraged children as young as 14 years of age to engage in life-threatening sex acts. One instructor told the students: "Fisting often gets a bad rap."

"Fistgate" soon attracted national prominence. Among others, Sean Hannity discusses the event in his book, Let Freedom Ring, and William Bennett talks about the event in his book, The Broken Hearth . This past week, Alan Keyes made a trip to Boston to speak on behalf of Camenker and Whiteman, as well as rally support for their cause.

Legal defense costs since homosexual advocacy groups first deposed Camenker and Whiteman in the summer of 2000 have reached well over $100,000, Camenker said.

"It has a certain national significance as to what the gays can do to parents who expose the stuff," he added.

The Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders did not return calls for comment.

"Why should the contents of a PRIVATE conference be made public?... There wasn't anything "public" about this. And the "public employees" were not acting in that capacity... they had volunteered their own time."

Camenker and Whiteman had a civic duty to expose the harmful and obscene material being presented in GLSEN's workshops. Remember, after the conference, the organizers denied claims of misconduct made by the Parent's Rights Coalition. The audio tape substantiated Camenker's and Whiteman's claims.

Go back to Reply 19 in this thread and reread Chapter 272, sections 28, 29, and 31. GLSEN and their workshop presenters are guilty of breaking the General Laws of Massachusetts by disseminating harmful and obscene matter to minors as defined in section 31:

"Harmful to minors'', matter is harmful to minors if it is obscene or, if taken as a whole, it (1) describes or represents nudity, sexual conduct or sexual excitement, so as to appeal predominantly to the prurient interest of minors; (2) is patently contrary to prevailing standards of adults in the county where the offense was committed as to suitable material for such minors; and (3) lacks serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value for minors.

"Obscene'', matter is obscene if taken as a whole it (1) appeals to the prurient interest of the average person applying the contemporary standards of the county where the offense was committed; (2) depicts or describes sexual conduct in a patently offensive way; and (3) lacks serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value...

As a member of the homosexual community who has claimed to have attended GLSEN conferences (are you mentoring these kids?), Youhave confirmed that this conference was a completely PRIVATE. Therefore GLSEN and the workshop presenters have no defense under sections 28 and 28. But we know that the pro-homosexual government of Massachusetts would never file charges in a case like this.

It's time to put a stop to GLSEN's influence in the public schools.

Your response pretty well verifies your sense of twisted logic which doesn't really surprise me. How you or anyone else can deem fisting as just another facet of sex that can be intertwined into any discssion of sexual matters, especially with young impressionable children gives new meaning to the term "warped mind"! Of course, this type of thinking (?) is I'm sure just a natural by-product of a lifestyle that has a growing % of young men who view receiving the "gift" of the HIV virus as some sort of erotic experience. Don't feign surprise at responses like mine...we all know what's going on here with the homosexual movement and their tireless efforts to recruit young people into their world of anonymous sex in public bathrooms, violating body parts, HIV laden sex orgies, sex with animals and who knows what else. If you really see this a viable alternative for young people I have nothing but pity for you. Also, feel free to contact the Texas GLSEN chapters that practice this perversity...while you can before they self-destruct.

I have not made up my mind about this issue, so I appreciate your opinion.

Nevertheless, do you think that leaking anonimously this illegally-obtained material would have been a better strategy?

Remember "Deep Throat"?

He/She/They stole secret information and leaked it to the Wash Post. Nevertheless, "Deep Throat" never revealed its identity, avoiding all the distraction of personal attacks, such as accusation of being a law breaker.

The "Fistgate" actors need to learn more about the first "Gate", Watergate

Yeah, and all those search engines with "personals" sections are nothing more than a figment of our imaginations. Add to that the sites that offer parks, campus and office bathrooms where "cruisers" can meet with others to spread the "gift"...just mirages I guess. Also, if that doesn't happen then they visit all the bookstore gloryholes to get anonymous satisfaction... oh I'm sorry that must be another distorted allegation. Sorry pal, you cannot defend the indefensible, groups and individuals around the country are continually uncovering more info all the time.

"Would a meteor strike work for that? I've noticed He usually employs natural forces. (And why not)."

Isa 46:9-10
9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,
10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

(some believe that the book of Job is the oldest book of the Bible)

Job 38:22-23
22 Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,
23 Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?

Rev 16:14,16-18,20,21
14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent (over 100 lbs.): and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

2 Pet 3:9-13
9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

In Matthew, Jesus plainly stated that in the "last days, it will be as the days of Noah".

Looks like we almost there.

"... the $150-million budget of the state's "Safe Schools" program..."

Banned in Boston - Better not complain about the gay agenda for Massachusetts schools.

Indeed, Paul Cellucci, the state's Republican governor, has continued to budget $1.5 million for the Governor's Commission for Gay and Lesbian Youth. The commission oversees the creation and support of "Gay/Straight Alliances"--student clubs organized around gay issues.

Attached you will find a FY 97 Safe Schools Program for Gay and Lesbian Students Pilot Mentor Program Grant opportunity, provided in partnership with the Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth.

This small $40,000 grant program will provide state funds to eight to ten school districts to create a mentoring program to help other schools start gay/straight alliances at the high school level...

Interesting. Tell me again how no taxpayer funds are being used to promote the homosexual agenda in the public schools.

schools, libraries, and museums are exempt from state pornography laws.

Then why are there net nannies or whatever on school computers?

The ACLU, NEA, and Planned Parenthood oppose filters on school & public library computers. They are concerned about filters hindering the 1st Amendment.

Camenker and Whiteman broke the law. See Section Q for Civil Remedy. That is why they are being sued. It’s all in accordance with the General Laws of Massachusetts.

Please consult your own link to the relevant statute of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

2. The term "oral communication" means speech, except such speech as is transmitted over the public air waves by radio or other similar device.

Such as a microphone and loudspeakers?

Your claim that Camenker and Whiteman broke the law just doesn't hold water. It wasn't a private conversation. It was a public seminar.

Here's another link of yours:

The mere fact of availability of professional development credits is not sponsorship.

However, the availability of professional development credits from the Massachusetts Department of Education signals that it was indeed a public event.

And the fact that GLSEN and others don't want the tape distributed proves that they know how explosive this is. They know that parents and other taxpayers will object to exposing their children to this nonsense.

Well, we could debate a long time about a definition for a "average homosexual" but I don't see much evidence that proves your be it. One thing I'll leave you with is that it's generally understood that during Hitler's rise to power, homosexuals were used as a cause celebre for a time until he had solidified his power base. At which time it's my understanding that many of those involved with homosexual rights were rounded up along know the rest. Something to think about.
