MA legislator cuts off graphic MassResistance testimony -- at State House public hearing on bill to eliminate odious Mass. GLBT Youth Commission.
Does the truth hurt that much?
POSTED: November 23, 2009
The truth hurts a lot, it seems. Especially at the Massachusetts State House.
At that public hearing before the Joint Committee on Children, Families and Persons with Disabilities, Committee Chairman Rep. Kay Khan (D-Newton) abruptly cut off Brian Camenker from completing his testimony. Khan also cut short the testimony of the two others from MassResistance who testified, Sally Naumann of Carlisle and Fr. John Harrington, a Catholic priest from the Fall River Diocese.
On one else who testified at the hearing was cut short or interrupted in any way, even though several of them spoke fairly long. It was such an unusual and outrageous action that the State House News wrote an article about it that day.
Interestingly, none of the major homosexual groups, nor the commission itself, brought anybody to testify on their behalf or defend their actions. Instead, they (1) sent a few hardcore activists to testify as "regular citizens" and (2) appear to be working behind the scenes with the friendly legislators.
Telling it like it is!
The MassResistance panel didn't pull any punches.
Camenker described in graphic detail (see video above) what the some of the members of this state-funded commission have actually done to children in the public schools. He also told the legislators about the bizarre makeup of the commission, including (among others) a man who wears a dress, a woman with a beard, and another "transgender" man who has taken hormones to grow breasts like a female. But when Camenker started to describe the phony and false methods they used to justify their activities, Rep. Khan (who is enthusiastically pro-homosexual) interrupted him and told him to stop, "We get your point", she said, "You can submit the rest of your testimony in writing."
The second panel member, Sally Naumann, told the panel how parents do not want this in the schools. She was also interrupted by Khan.
The third member, Fr. Harrington, talked about virtues that should be taught in the schools instead of homosexuality. Even that was too much. Khan interrupted him and told him to "wrap up " his testimony immediately. No one else that day was interrupted or told to limit their testimony.
Homosexual activists jump up to testify
Immediately after the MassResistance panel, two homosexual activists, both middle-aged men, who had not previously been signed up to testify on the bill, asked to testify. They both criticized MassResistance and talked about how "wonderful" and "necessary" the work of the commission is for kids.
It's odd that this bill would be referred to the Joint Committee on Children, Families, and Persons with Disabilities. We were told that it's because the Mass. Commission on GLBT Youth deals with "families." However, the legislation that describes the makeup of the commission and their duties does not include the word "families" or anything similar. Maybe they really mean "persons with disabilities."
State House News picks up the story
Even the leftish State House News, tho pro-gay, found the incident to be over the top . . .
HARDLINE OPPONENTS OF GAY RIGHTS RANKLE COMMITTEE CHAIR
Unfortunately, the State House News -- like the rest of the Boston media -- isn't too interested in looking into the depraved things done to kids by Commission members which we've uncovered -- and which are all completely provable.
