CNSNews.com) - 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.

GLSEN is indeed a child absuer, and it's influence should be fought everywhere.
Anyone who promotes or encourages 'fisting' to teenagers is a child abuser, including GLSEN and those who support it. This is pure evil. You, magd, are willfully blind to evil.
Madg thinks it's fine for people to solicit homosexual sex in public rest rooms, and that the age of consent of 16-18 is fine - and that it's fine for there to be homosexual scoutmasters with other people's 16-18 teenage boys under their authority on overnight camping trips. By defending GLSEN in this disgusting and evil incident, in which young teenagers are taught the particulars of anal intercourse, fisting, anal balls, etc. (i.e. playing with feces), madg has sided against our children. We need to protect our children from such as he. He is dangerous. That which he defends is pure evil.
Thanks for your comments, espoman. I pray that madg repent from the path of evil and corruption and spiritual desolation which he has chosen. I pray for the children who are led onto that path by the likes of madg.
I want to find out what the lawsuit states and I want to help support this parent group anyway I can. I might not be able to send much money-but there have to be other ways. I am still furious that thise psycho group of abnormal sexual creeps is sueing a PARENT for what that parent LEARNED in a public symposium. Fisting.....oh geeeeeeeeeeez. Liberal homosexual activists are the filthiest things going....using CHILDREN to spread their dirt. And I mean dirt....as in fecal, poop, crap, etc.
God BLESS the parents undergoing this invasion, this attempt to silence their outrage by forcing them to pay HUNDREDS of thousands of dollars in legal fees (for what, I ask, concern over what children are learning?). We must not let this happen.
Don't forget to teach the high school kids to safely sanitize their whips and S&M/sex toys and to not share such instruments with multiple partners. Some of these sorts of courses actually do tell kids to be careful of the blood that is lost during some rough sex activities. Generally bleeding would indicate that something is already progressing beyond the bounds of "safe" activity but I guess these kids (and their "sex positive" instructors) are still learning.
Refute the assertion or continue to bray like a jackass, the choice is yours. Did Abel insist that she was compensated by the state or not?
