MassResistance "Special Report" on the Boston Protest Against Prop 8

The anti-gay hate group, MassResistance, has posted a "special report" on the protest against prop 8 that took place November 15 at Boston City Hall. It was the largest LGBT rights demonstration in Boston in decades. It is obvious that Brian (the author of MassResistance) was not able to hear any of the speeches. He was counter-protesting the rally. The "special report" talks about the rally targeting people of faith. This is ludicrous. The only mention of religion was one speaker who said that we must love everyone, not matter what faith they may practice.

This report is another attempt by MassResistance to spread lies about LGBT people. They call the rally a fascist-like protest. This could not be further from the truth. In fact, watch the videos here and decided for yourself.

MassResistance is also attacking Congressman Capuano and Congresswoman Tsongas for speaking at the event. I guess they missed Congressman Ed Markey since there is no mention of his speech in the "special report". It is obvious that Brian just watched the two minute news clip on the event (which only mentions Capuano and Tsongas) and then made up his own story.

The MassResistance "special report" asks readers to contact the Congresspeople and scold them for speaking at the event. Let's make sure they hear from us as well. Give them a call and send them an email thanking them for speaking at the rally and for standing up for equality. 

Below is an excerpt from the MassResistance "special report". They are even calling on people who live out of state to contact the Congresspeople. Let's flood their offices with THANK YOUS! You may use the contact information below to call and email Congressman Capuano and Congresswoman Tsongas to thank them for their support.

This is an OUTRAGE! Every good person in America should be disgusted by this. No matter WHERE you live, you have an obligation to let these two know that their endorsement of this vile behavior over the last few weeks is not just un-American, it's inhuman. Contact BOTH of them:
