MassResistance Accomplishments

MassResistance officially organized in 1995 as Parents' Rights Coalition, although it had been active both locally and state-wide since 1993. In 2003, under the name Article 8 Alliance, it expanded to issues surrounding the same-sex "marriage" court ruling and its effects in Massachusetts. In 2006, these efforts were consolidated under the new name "MassResistance." We have been the leading pro-family grassroots activist group in Massachusetts.

Some of our accomplishments over the years include:

  • Legislation: Wrote, lobbied, and got passed the Massachusetts Parental Notification Law (Ch. 71, Sec. 32A), despite a hostile legislature and governor. This has become a landmark law that forced public schools notify parents about sexuality and homosexuality being presented to their children. No other group has gotten pro-family legislation passed in Massachusetts since then. (1996)
  • Exposed notorious "Fistgate" seminar by Mass. Dept. of Education and GLSEN homosexual activists, which taught dangerous homosexual sex practices to children. Made national news; two state employees were fired. Homosexual groups subsequently sued Parents Rights' Coalition twice (both times unsuccessfully) to stop their efforts to distribute tape recordings of the sessions. (2000)
  • Successfully lobbied the US Senate Foreign Relations Chairman, Sen. Jesse Helms, to put a "hold" on the President's appointment of Mass. Governor Paul Cellucci to Ambassador to Canada, until Cellucci agreed to curtail any efforts to expand homosexual rights there. Cellucci had greatly expanded homosexual programs in the public schools while Governor of Massachusetts. (2000)
  • Filed bills in last two legislative sessions to strengthen the Parental Notification Law, and will re-file in next session with even stronger provisions.
  • Publicized the notorious David Parker incident across the country (Lexington father jailed for demanding his rights to opt his child out of homosexual subject matter in kindergarten); exposed and documented this story in detail. From our efforts, this has gotten extensive national press. (2005-ongoing)
  • Exposed Chief Justice Margaret Marshall's violation of the Code of Judicial Conduct in ruling on same-sex "marriage". (April 2005-on)
  • Successfully led fight to stop dangerous bills filed in the Mass. Legislature for: mandatory sexuality and homosexuality education in schools; decriminalization of bestiality and sodomy; and legalization of homosexual "marriage" through statute. Mobilized hundreds to testify, thousands to contact legislators. (2006)
  • Successfully helped pro-family state legislators hold seats when opposed in primaries by homosexual activist challengers funded by national GLBT groups. Organized volunteers and phone banking, and did district-wide mailings. (2004)
  • Fought homosexual "marriage" ruling in Legislature: Wrote and filed bills to strengthen marriage definition in Mass. statute, and declare same-sex "marriages" null/void & without statutory basis. (2004-6)
  • Wrote, prepared and got conservative legislators to file Bill of Address in Legislature to remove judges who handed down same-sex "marriage" ruling -- the unique Constitutional remedy for judges who abuse their power. (2004-6)
  • Successfully pressured Gov. Romney to not issue further Proclamations celebrating "Youth Pride Day" in his 3rd and 4th year in office. (2005, 2006)
  • Exposed horrific hardcore homosexual "Little Black Book" and transgender workshops -- pornographic information given to children at a GLSEN conference held at Brookline High School. Incident continues to get national attention. (2005)
  • Forced major advertising company, ClearChannel, to take down homosexual pornographic billboard over major street in Cambridge one day after lots of our activists contacted them. (2005)
  • Pressured supermarket chain to remove sexually graphic homosexual newspaper from stores, and the newspaper management to remove pornographic personal ads from print edition. (2004)
  • Exposed "Youth Pride" and BAGLY "trans" Prom, and Boston Pride events including children, partly funded with taxpayer money. (2005, 2006)
  • Documented and publicized homosexual radicals' riot outside Focus on the Family's "Love Won Out" conference at Tremont Temple Baptist Church in Boston. (Oct. 2005)
  • Pressured Macy's Department Store to remove Boston Pride promotion in "transsexual mannequins" window display, through massive grassroots action. This incident made the national and international media -- as far away as Australia and London. (June 2006)
  • Successfully pressured Gov. Romney to veto funding of homosexual programs in schools put in FY 2007 state budget, through national grassroots action. (July 2006)
  • Focused Gov. Romney's attention on excesses of "Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth," which caused Romney to begin process to disband it, but unfortunately he reversed his decision when pressured by GLBT activists. (May 2006)
  • Successfully lobbied Legislators to sustain Gov. Romney's veto of the dangerous new independent "Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth" (one of only a few of his vetoes to be upheld in the Legislature), through grassroots action. Unfortunately, through subsequent arm-twisting tactics by the Speaker, it was later overturned. (July 2006)
  • Hosted weekly radio show on WTTT 1150 AM Boston (Salem Radio Network), broadcast twice weekly and available on website, the only Boston media taking on controversial pro-family issues. (2005-2007)
  • Pro-family voice at conventions and conferences, most recently at Values Voters Conference (Washington, D.C., 3/06), Vermont Renewal (9/06), Christian Civic League of Maine (10/06).
  • Published nationally significant reports, "The Mitt Romney Deception" (recently discussed on the FoxNews "Brit Hume" national TV show) and "Mitt Romney: Father of Gay Marriage" which continue to reverberate on the national political and media scene. These reports explained Romney's liberal positions and actions over the years, and document his unconstitutional directives to his Dept. of Public Health, Justices of the Peace, and Town Clerks throughout Massachusetts which began same-sex "marriages" in 2004.
