Massachusetts Tea Party Patriots Welcome Anti-Gay Hate Group Leaders to Rally in Boston: VIDEO


Yesterday I linked to Scott Wooledge's excellent DailyKos write-up of this event in my round-up. But here's some excellent video of the event as it unfolded, with anti-gay Christianist evangelist Scott Lively and MassResistance's Brian Camenker, both leaders of hate groups designated by the SPLC, as they take the podium to trash gays.

Hats off to the activists protesting this event.

The clip also features a brief interview with Lively, in which he is asked what's the downside to same-sex marriage, and responds, "fire and brimstone raining from Heaven."

  1. Andy, I believe this T.P. group splintered from another, moderate group. I bet this group was created by outsiders. This demonstration couldn't have been large, because I was in the area and was totally unaware of any protest going on. The Common and surrounding area were packed, but 99% had nothing to do with these protests. I didn't even notice any police presence.

  3. Moderate group that's what less anti gay?
    The tea bags may have had a good idea in the beginning but like most republican groups sold out to the religious right

  5. The fanatical religious based rightwing groups have a habit of co-opting 'conservative' organizations the same way fanatical far left loons have a habit of co-opting many sensible liberal [progressive] groups.

  7. I live right in the city of Boston, have for almost 2 decades, literally a 5 minute walk to where this took place, and I heard nothing about it. Same thing happened when Palin and the T-baggers were doing rounds when she was running for VP. This was held in what is called the 'Back Bay' of Boston, one of the most gay-friendly parts of the whole state. These people are damn fools.
