Breaking: Gang of three extremists to severely wound Maine's 'Yes on 1' campaign

by Jeremy Hooper

-Brian Camenker: The leader of one of only eleven organizations to be so extreme, that they've chosen by the Southern Poverty Law Center as an official anti-gay hate group.

-Peter LaBarbera: So heated in his hostility, that he sent yours truly a message a few days before his wedding for the sole purpose of condemning the upcoming nuptials.

-Paul Madore: Longtime cohort of the Christian Civic League of Maine, an organization that has gone so far as to blame LGBT progress for things like bad weather, graffiti, and economic crises.

Tomorrow, they will all be shilling for Stand For Marriage Maine, whether they like it or not (Hint: The credibility-seeking Stand For Marriage Maine does not at all like it):

The Maine Grassroots Coalition will hold a press conference in the Hall of Flags at the State House in Augusta at 11:00 on Wednesday October 28th, to alert the public to the dangers of the radical homosexual agenda. The press conference will feature three well-known pro-family speakers, Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, Brian Camenker of Mass Resistance, and Maine's own Paul Madore, from the Maine Grassroots Coalition.

Paul Madore warns that clever advertising by pro-homosexual groups is trying to portray the Yes on 1 campaign as dominated by out-of-state money, when in fact, the pro-homosexual marriage campaign has raised three times more money than our side. Madore also warns that pro-homosexual marriage groups are recruiting same-sex marriage activists from around the country - including San Francisco - to take "Maine Volunteer Vacations" and campaign against our Peoples Veto.

Speakers at the press conference will expose the hidden aspects of the radical homosexual agenda, and will reveal how Maine is being manipulated into voting No on 1.

Oh, and by the way: Two of the three men are from out-of-state. Just sayin'.

Your thoughts

Does this mean they are going to pass out copies of the "radical homosexual agenda"? maybe they'll have a power point presentation. I have always wanted a copy of it. I'd love to see it.

I'm not sure I should say it.

Thanks Pete?

I was probably the last person on the planet to watch this 2005 clip, but damn. What does it say about Camenker that he has stuck with the same line of work even after such a brutal public humiliation?

I posted this at S4MM facebook:

"The Maine Grassroots Coalition will hold a press conference in the Hall of Flags at the State House in Augusta at 11:00 a. m. today, to alert the public to the dangers of the radical homosexual agenda. The press conference will feature three well-known pro-family speakers, Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, Brian Camenker of Mass Resistance, and Paul Madore, from the Maine Grassroots Coalition."

Otherwise there was nothing about it there.

Oh of course they haven't posted it, Bill. I guarantee you that Stand For Marriage Maine is absolutely FUMING about this. I know for a fact that they deliberately tried to hide Mike Heath, a Camenker/LaBarbera/Madore cohort, after they realized that he would be a liability. They realize that these folks make them look extreme.

So good on you for putting it up. I'm just shocked you still have the ability to post to SFMM's wall. Most of us have been banned from doing so.

I love when Andy Bernard asks Carmenker to point to an aspect of life that has been affected by gay marriage.

Camenker: "I could sit here and I could probably find some way of connecting the dots to gay marriage if I had enough time to do the research."

Andy Bernard: "Yea, why tak time to do research when saying it is so much faster?"

Jeremy,

I saw your HINT about not liking it, that's why I posted it. I've had a couple innocuous posts deleted even though I took your prior warning into account, so I've been as stealthy as possible since then.

Keep up the great work!

Doesn't sound like they had a powerpoint or even a handout. Pity. I still want to see the radical homosexual agenda with my own two eyes.

Eight people with signs. Seventeen people at Rev. Bob's big rally in Bangor last night. Sounds like Maine people are really showing up in droves for Yes on 1 events.

And in response to Bill's FB post, someone wrote this:

I've been wondering when the campaign was gonna bring out some of the real heavy hitters. Good news.

LOL...
