Fringe anti-LGBT group claims Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade organizers thanked them for 'getting the truth out'

by Jeremy Hooper

MassResistance (headed by Brian Camenker) is an exceedingly anti-LGBT organization that has been on the Southern Poverty Law Center's list of "hate groups" for many years now. However, this over-the-top group is apparently right in line with the organizers of Boston's pointedly discriminatory St. Patrick's Day parade:

So they lose the mayor, several prominent politicians, the city's most famous beer company (among other sponsors), and the creative contributions of LGBT people and allies. Yet they celebrate MassResistance? MASSRESISTANCE?!?! The organization that literally manufactured and sold stickers consisting of the HRC equality symbols with a slash through it? The organization that stands outside of public bathrooms and films transgender human beings as they try to pee? The organization that advises the marriage inequality movement that it is losing because it is being too nice? The same organization whose president was just in Jamaica, encouraging that nation to uphold laws criminalizing homosexuality?

It's a losing gamble, parade organizers—and you just placed a stunningly bad bet.
