MassResistance is a conservative news website operated by Brian Camenker out of Massachusetts. They are primarily involved in the opposition of homosexual "rights" and protecting the rights of children. The group was formed in 2006 as part of a consolidation of the Parents' Rights Coalition and the Article 8 Alliance. They oppose same-sex "marriage" and homosexual legislation targeted at schools such as transgender bills. They opposed "Teach-Out," a homosexual conference for pre-adolescent students that was sponsored by the Massachusetts Department of Education. The group has been targeted by the liberal Southern Poverty Law Center as a "hate group". MassResistance actively opposes Mitt Romney for his policies while governor of Massachusetts.
