What Same-Sex ‘Marriage’ Has Done to Massachusetts

Back in the summer we compiled notes from some of the best minds on the topic of the defense of traditional marriage. As an update, we are alerted by Americans for Truth’s Peter LaBarbera that Brian Camenker has written an outstanding article for MassResistance.org on the consequences of “gay” marriage in Massachusetts. LaBarbera writes that the piece is –

– a tutorial of sorts on the cascading ill effects of a state embracing homosexuality as a “civil right.”

Peter calls upon people to support the fine work of MassResistance. We would add a call for support for Peter LaBarbera’s efforts at www.americansfortruth.com.

A few short excerpts from Camenker’s article follow. It can be read here.

What same-sex “marriage” has done to Massachusetts

It’s far worse than most people realize

Anyone who thinks that same-sex “marriage” is a benign eccentricity which won’t affect the average person should consider what it has done in Massachusetts. It’s become a hammer to force the acceptance and normalization of homosexuality on everyone. And this train is moving fast. What has happened so far is only the beginning…

* * * * *

On November 18, 2003, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court announced its Goodridge opinion, ruling that it was unconstitutional not to allow same-sex “marriage.” Six months later, homosexual marriages began to be performed.

The homosexual “marriage” onslaught in public schools across the state started soon after the November 2003, court decision.

* * * * *

Because same-sex marriage is “legal,” a federal judge has ruled that the schools now have a duty to portray homosexual relationships as normal to children, despite what parents think or believe!

* * * * *

Over the past year, homosexual groups have been using taxpayer money to distribute a large, slick hardcover book celebrating homosexual marriage titled “Courting Equality” into every school library in the state.

* * * * *

Once homosexuality has been normalized, all boundaries will come down. The schools are already moving on to normalizing transgenderism (including cross-dressing and sex changes). The state-funded Commission on Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Youth includes leaders who are transsexuals.

* * * * *

Since homosexual marriage became “legal” the rates of HIV / AIDS have gone up considerably in Massachusetts. This year public funding to deal with HIV/AIDS has risen by $500,000.

* * * * *

Given the extreme dysfunctional nature of homosexual relationships, the Massachusetts Legislature has felt the need to spend more money every year to deal with skyrocketing homosexual domestic violence. This year $350,000 was budgeted, up $100,000 from last year.

* * * * *

All insurance in Massachusetts must now recognize same-sex “married” couples in their coverage. This includes auto insurance, health insurance, life insurance, etc.

Businesses must recognize same-sex “married” couples in all their benefits, activities, etc., regarding both employees and customers.
