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.

That seems to be the case, according to the "General Laws of Massachusetts." However, we've been told many times by the pro-homosexual folks that this was a PRIVATE conference. And we've been told that GLSEN does not teach anything in the public schools. So then GLSEN is a PRIVATE organization, NOT "a bona fide school, museum or library." Why then, can't GLSEN be charged under Chapter 272, sections 28 and 29 for disseminating matter which is obscene? It was their private conference and they were responsible for protecting the kids from this obscene material.
As far as the public schools go, the best thing all parents can do to protect their children is to remove the homosexual advocates' "audience" by using the Hatch Amendment Letter - Parental Consent Form for use in the Public Schools. Let the pro-homos spout their propaganda and perversion to a bunch of empty chairs.
Context Matters was written by a lesbian who says she is "a self defined gay and lesbian activist, woman's rights activist, AIDS activist, child rights activist, and educator" who, at age 16, "fell in love with a woman for the first time and recognized it as being In Love."

"My information here is a based on a number of sources, primarily Margot Ables, one of the presenters of the workshops in question. It is also based on my own research and knowledge of the political right in Massachusetts, HIV/AIDS education, effective prevention programs, and Gay Straight Alliances. Although I ordered the tape of this workshop, as offered in the email version of this article, it has not yet arrived. Because of this I am as of yet unable to provide a transcript of the workshop (and until legal questions about the copyright, distribution and confidentiality questions are answered, I will not personally provide that transcript.) I stand by the facts as presented here insofar as I have been able to discover them."
Contex Matters is nothing more than homosexual propaganda. It presents the homosexual side of the story as written by a homosexual activist.
The people who do this (and many support it) are evil and guilty of child abuse.
Public services, including education and libraries, have become pornographers - and disseminate filth to your children - including homosexual pornography. They want your children.
Teaching 14-yr. olds about fisting (a truly disgusting and filthy and revolting and dangerous act) is a form of child abuse. Anybody with an ounce of sense knows that. The legal niceties are irrelevant here. This was out-and-out child abuse of the most evil sort. When homosexual groups teach 14-yr. olds how to put one's fist up another person's anus, they are on the attack against children. They are evil.
It's quite clear that there were teenagers there, madg. Teaching any teenager to put his arm up another person's anus is an evil form of child abuse. I'm shocked (truly) that you could defend this thing. These were virtual child molestors in action.
The proposed RIMMING, SNORKLING and GERBIL STUFFING badges are still being designed and will be -- er -- OUT soon.
From your own post, madg, on other questions that were addressed:
Cum? Calories? Spit versus swallow? Health concerns? What is an anal ball? Womens vaginal wall can expand to any dick size Can anal walls do the same?
You're sick, sick, sick, madg. This is child abuse. These people were abusing kids.
You're in the same boat with child abusers, madg. Go on, go on supporting teaching children these absolutely revolting, filthy, germ-ridden, dangerous, perverted things. This conference was sick - really sick.
Fine, they broke the law. But what open society tries to impose draconian consequences on people who were making public what should be public - words uttered of public employees to children of the Commonwealth?
RWP is right. The people who exposed these sick child abuse atrocities are heroes.
