Recruitment? Middle-school students hear from homosexual high schoolers

A Boston-area middle school was caught quietly trying to introduce students to a homosexual club without telling parents. 

Lynnfield Middle School (pictured below) tried to sneak the Gay-Straight Alliance assembly past parents until MassResistance, a pro-family organization, learned about the plan. The event was held late last year.

Lynnfield Middle School (Boston)Brian Camenker of MassResistance says this is not unusual and claims schools try to do this all the time.

"They routinely try to avoid telling parents," he says, "and if do, they they're very dishonest about what it really is," hiding behind terms such as "tolerance." 

On its website, MassResistance reported that it learned of the assembly from a "frantic mother" who heard about it but was not informed by the school itself.

Once Mass Resistance confronted the school about the secret assembly, Camenker says school officials quickly sent out an email to parents.

Camenker, Brian (MassResistance)"Had we not called, they would not have done it," he claims.

The MassResistance website also has the email sent to parents. It informed parents on December 14 of a "brief informational assembly" planned for December 16 in which seventh and eighth graders would hear homosexual and lesbian high schoolers "share their positive experiences" as members of the GSA.

"They would have gotten a heavy dose of this stuff without parents knowing about it," Camenker argues.

He says Mass Resistance has filed an update to a law in the Massachusetts Legislature requiring parental notification of school events to include homosexual-related events and activities.
