Jewish columnist takes on Anti-Defamation League (ADL) for ignoring bigoted attacks by homosexual activists on Mormon, Catholic, and Protestant churches.

December 12, 2008

We've all been outraged and sickened by the barbaric attacks against churches - particularly Mormon churches - over the last month by homosexual activists who are enraged because constitutional amendments to ban homosexual "marriage" passed in all three states where it was put up for a vote.

But because this is being done by a "protected" group, it's not being taken seriously by our government or by the media. It's bad enough that the mainstream media largely ignored or downplayed this. But worse is the extreme hypocrisy by the self-styled "anti-defamation" groups, which remained silent because they support the homosexual movement.

Recently, when the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has become very active and animated over a swastika painted on a liberal Jewish temple in Newton by vandals, but has said virtually nothing about what's going on across the country, columnist Tom Mountain had enough. Tom writes a weekly column for The Jewish Advocate, the major Jewish newspaper in New England. In his own way, Tom has decided to fight back. Here's his article:

Choosing your bigots wisely.
by Tom Mountain, the Jewish Advocate
. . . Since the ADL is a liberal Jewish organization which supports gay marriage, the ADL won't protest the hateful bigotry and violence of these gay activists . . .

Iowa Supreme Court hears arguments on same-sex "marriage". MassResistance article already making the rounds.

December 12, 2008

More judicial madness.

Last year an Iowa trial court judge ruled that the state's 10-year-old law defining marriage as one man and one woman was unconstitutional because it violates the Constitution's language regarding "equal treatment" and "due process." The ruling was overturned on appeal. The case moved into the Iowa Supreme Court. On Tuesday the court heard oral arguments.

(If this link doesn't work, try Googling the title to get it directly)

According to the New York Times report, the oral arguments centered around the usual topics: the age-old definition of marriage, comparison to inter-racial marriage bans, marriage and procreation, gay adoption, etc. (Iowa already allows homosexuals to adopt children, which adds to the problem.)

Unfortunately, too many "conservative" lawyers are too timid to argue about the uncomfortable issues, including the destructive aspects of the homosexual lifestyle and how it will super-charge the homosexual agenda aimed at children in schools. And of course there's the real issue: The courts are being allowed to overstep their bounds. No court can just step in and claim to have the power to drastically change society -- in this case, to repeal the laws of nature! -- and simply spit in the face of the citizens. The American Revolution was fought over less than that.

As we've said many times, this is the only way the homosexual movement can succeed - through un-democratic means that ignore the wishes of the people. And it must be stopped in its tracks.

MassResistance article showing up everywhere

We're seeing reports that our recent posting, "What same-sex "marriage" has done to Massachusetts" that was all over California and Florida in the weeks before the marriage amendment votes there, is now making its way into blogs and emails in Iowa. We're glad to help out!

MassResistance article: What same-sex "marriage" has done to Massachusetts

We've recently gotten a number of requests from around the country to re-publish it in pamphlet form so that it can be easily reproduced and handed out. We're on it!

Pope stands up to European Union on homosexual issue.

December 12, 2008

Many people have been critical of the Archdiocese of Boston for opposing our recent referendum petition to help stop the spread of same-sex "marriage" across the country, even banning pro-marriage petition gatherers from Church property.

But Pope Benedict is certainly standing tall on this issue. The Vatican has formally opposed the absurd United Nations "Declaration on Sexual Rights" which states that homosexual activity should be decriminalized across the globe.

And of course, the homosexual "community" responding by staging a vile anti-Catholic demonstrations outside of the Vatican, and even here in Boston. Anti-Catholic hatred by homosexual activists is not new, but it's getting more public.

US and other countries follow Pope's lead

Thankfully, the United States is among several countries that has followed the Pope's lead and is also opposing this! (Unfortunately, that will most likely change with the new US president!) The European Union, on the other hand, has pretty much entirely caved in, and it's getting worse.

Gay activists bring the fight to Boston

Not to be outdone, Boston area homosexual activists held their own anti-Catholic protest against the Pope's strong stand for normalcy.  Many were calling themselves "gay Catholics" and condemned the Pope for daring to take a stand for traditional Catholic values.

We say: Bravo to the Pope for setting the bar high for the rest of us.

Governor's Council hearing on controversial Mass. SJC judge appointment suddenly postponed -- upsetting some Council members.

December 12, 2008

In our last email we reported that Gov. Deval Patrick has appointed a liberal activist judge, Ralph Gants, to replace the retiring pro-gay "marriage" judge John Greaney on the Supreme Judicial Court. (Greaney was one of the four judges who imposed "gay marriage" in Massachusetts.)

MassResistance report on Ralph Gants appointment

We promised you we'd follow up on this. It's taken an interesting turn.

As you know, in Massachusetts judges must be approved by the 8-member elected Governor's Council. And usually it's a shoo-in. But Gants is so controversial that his supporters got cold feet at the last minute, and decided not to risk a vote right away. The hearing was scheduled for this past Wednesday, but they took the unprecedented step of suddenly, without notice, getting it postponed until the middle of next month so they could "prepare" more. And that didn't sit well at all with a few of the Councilors.

As State House News reported on Thursday:

The Governor's Council on Wednesday suddenly postponed until Jan. 14 its hearing on the nomination of Superior Court Judge Ralph Gants for a vacancy on the Supreme Judicial Court. The hearing was scheduled for Thursday afternoon. Councilor Marilyn Devaney, who was set to preside over the hearing, said she was "embarrassed" for the council for making the last-minute decision. "I think it's very inconsiderate," she said. "I think it's very, very rude." . . . [Councilor Thomas] Foley said he alerted the administration to his intention to postpone the hearing on Tuesday and that the mid-January date was the earliest possible to take up the nomination. "I don't see the controversy," he said. Councilor Mary-Ellen Manning pointed out that councilors will be sworn in to new terms in January and Lt. Gov. Tim Murray said the Gants nomination would be resubmitted, if necessary.

Gov. Patrick thought it will be easy to pad every court with liberals. Maybe it won't be as easy as he thinks. People are starting to get uncomfortable. We'll keep you informed on what happens.

Obama 'proud' to have homosexual band march in inaugural parade

December 12, 2008

This is just a taste of how bad things are probably going to get. Remember the hideous groups that marched in the "Gay Pride" parade? You're about to see it in living color on Inaguration Day. Our president-elect has formally invited a hardcore homosexual marching band to march in his inauguration parade on Jan. 20. Their other upcoming gig - the infamous "Southern Decadence Festival" in New Orleans, which you can read about here . . .

Boston Christian Radio legend Alex Canavan dies at 72

December 12, 2008

Most people reading this probably don't know who Alex Canavan was. But he was a very special man. He was general manager of the Boston Christian radio station group WEZE/WROL/WTTT for many years until his retirement a year or so ago. In the 1990s, Mr. Canavan brought in talk show host Jeannine Graf, whose daily 2 pm-4pm talk show on WEZE was incredibly popular. Jeannine used the show to help mobilize parents during the 1996 fight to pass the Parents Rights Bill (Ch. 71 Sec. 32a) in the Massachusetts Legislature, in those days before the Internet. The show also gave a platform to many other conservative leaders and groups during that time.

In 2005, Mr. Canavan gave the go-ahead to start the weekly MassResistance radio show, which was paid for by ads sold by the station, and broadcast twice a week. Hundreds of people joined the MassResistance fight after hearing the broadcasts. After Mr. Canavan's retirement from the station, the new owners decided that MassResistance was too hot for them to handle, so they announced they were charging us several hundred dollars if we wanted to stay on. The show was forced to move to another station, and is currently off the air.

Alex Canavan will be greatly missed. You can read his obituary here.

Kansas State Senator Switches From Democrat to Republican Over Abortion

Imagine if state senators here in Massachusetts had this kind of guts . . .

Kansas State Senator Switches From Democrat to Republican Over Abortion

Topeka, KS (LifeNews.com) -- A veteran Democratic state legislator switched parties on Thursday from Democrat to Republican because of his pro-life position on abortion. Sen. Mark Gilstrap faced opposition in his primary election from an opponent backed by pro-abortion Gov. Kathleen Sebelius and the Democratic leader in the Senate.

"I am leaving the Democratic Party of Kansas today, a party that I have served my entire life, because the Democratic Party no longer tolerates dissenting points of view," Gilstrap said in a statement LifeNews.com obtained.

"I dared to cross the Democratic leadership by voting against the party line in Topeka. I voted my conscience on issues like abortion," he added. "For doing so, Sebelius and her allies targeted me for political assassination."

Sebelius supported a liberal challenger against Gilstrap in the 2008 Democratic primary election. Sebelius raised money to defeat Gilstrap, and the Democrats, led by Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, hired people to walk Gilstrap's district to campaign against him.

"I have humbly served Kansas Senate District 5 for twelve years and have consistently kept my eye on what was important for my district and the state of Kansas-even if it meant disagreeing with the governor," he said.
