BOSTON, May 12, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The now annual Massachusetts Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Youth Parade was highlighted this year by fully sanctioned participation by a variety of school groups. Children encouraged to display homosexual acts on camera to be posted to the group’s website, a gay prom at Boston City Hall and the distribution a variety of information pamphlets homosexualizing Christianity.
Titles of the various pamphlets included the following:
“Reading the Bible with New Eyes” which claims that Jesus had a homosexual affair with Lazarus and that Mary was a lesbian among other grotesque distortions; “Queer Spirituality” which claims that homosexuality can be a means of opening oneself to God; “History of Saints Servius and Bacchus” which claims that the two saints were involved in a homosexual relationship. Several of these pamphlets were handed out by a man dressed as a Catholic priest.
At one point during the event, a guest speaker incited the crowd to violently harass photographers from “Mass Resistance”, the pro-family action group. The photographers were surrounded, barred from taking pictures and then assaulted as a Boston police officer in uniform stood by and watched.
The event was fully sanctioned and funded by the State of Massachusetts through the Commission on Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Youth. Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick provided an official proclamation endorsing the event.
Some of the pictures in which children were encouraged to engage in homosexual acts in 2007 can be found on the “Mass Resistance” website https://www.massresistance.org/docs/events07/youthpride07/common.html (Warning: disturbing content).
Mass Resistance leader Brian Camenker told LifeSiteNews.com that the 2008 event was even worse. “I’ve never seen anything like it,” he said. Camenker said his group would be issuing a full report on the event with video and photographic evidence in the coming days.
