Massachusetts mother pushes back against homosexual activism in son's high school

A mother in Massachusetts is pushing for a state law that protects parental rights after her teenage son, who was questioning his sexual identity, was referred to a homosexual organization without her knowledge. 

Brian Camenker of MassResistance says Diane Splitz's son was successfully undergoing counseling for childhood trauma when he mentioned to his school counselor that might be homosexual. He was referred to an organization run by homosexual activists and things dramatically changed.

“They told him he’s really born gay and there’s nothing you can do about it, and your parents are hateful people and religion is hateful,” Camenker recalls. “It made him a very angry kid and very hostile.”

On the Mass Resistance website, Camenker relates that Splitz testified October 8 before the Joint Education Committee of the Massachusetts legislature. She alleged that the school counselor claimed giving her son a business card of the “Gay Straight Youth Alliance” was not a referral. The Mass. Department of Education ignored her, she also said.

The bill Splitz wants passed, House Bill 427, would ban school officials from referring children to outside organizations without parental approval.

The bill is authored by state Rep. Randy Hunt and has 12 co-sponsors. Camenker thinks it can be passed.

“We have until the end of 2014 to really push on this,” Camenker tells OneNewsNow. “And I think there’s a possibility of putting enough pressure on so that this thing really starts to move because the story has really outraged people.”

Camenker, Brian (MassResistance)Angered by her situation with school officials, Splitz also testified that she attended an education conference in which homosexual activists coached teachers on including the "LGBT agenda" in school curriculum. She told the state legislators:  

Students at the event, age 14 and up, were offered condoms and lubricants used for anal sex and they were given, among other things, instructions on how to threaten schools with lawsuits in order to force them to promote their agenda.  

The rift between the Splitzs and their son is beginning to heal. Camenker says at least the boy, now in college, has come to realize his parents never stopped loving him.
