Homosexual Activists Target Special-needs Student, Daughter of Pro-Family Activist

Persuaded vulnerable girl to "come out" as a lesbian on homosexual website -- for their propaganda advantage

From "Homosexual activists violate special-needs student, daughter of MassResistance staffer" posted 11/07/07 at

Homosexual activists - possibly in cooperation with school staff -- have viciously targeted a 17-year-old special-needs student, the daughter of Amy Contrada, a MassResistance staffer. (It's outrageous that a parent is now forced to reveal once-private information in order to stop this assault.)

Claudia Contrada was born in Korea and was adopted by Amy and her husband as an infant. Claudia's special needs include psychological/emotional issues and learning disabilities. Amy and her husband had Claudia enrolled in private parochial schools until her special needs exceeded those schools' abilities to deal with them. Thus, in seventh grade, they had no choice but to enroll Claudia in the Acton-Boxborough public school system.

But Claudia is talented in singing and especially acting. She has a beautiful voice and a fantastic memory for lines and lyrics. She has won awards for her acting. Her therapists said that Claudia's participation in the school's drama program is directly related to treatment of her special needs.

Pro-homosexual, violent play

This year the high school decided to have the drama club perform "The Laramie Project", a very objectionable pro-homosexual, anti-Christian play filled with profanity and extreme violence. Last summer, Amy met with school officials and also the drama board and begged them to choose a different play, citing Claudia's vulnerabilities. They responded very coldly, and refused to consider it. (We will be posting the audio recording of one of the meetings.)

Given her educational and social needs, it was extremely important for Claudia to be in the drama program this fall. Although it was distressing and painful to the family, it was decided to let her be in the play. The school had placed the family in a no-win situation.

...As the play rehearsals continued, Claudia started coming home with stories about how her mother was considered crazy, a "homophobe" and even "scary" by her fellow students. "Everybody in the cast knows I have a crazy, bigoted, homophobic mother," she said to Amy. And it seemed to intensify over time. Claudia's language around the home became more and more aggressive and vulgar (as it is in the play).

...On Sept. 26, after the cast of the play was announced, Mark Snyder, a 24-year-old homosexual activist from Boston, posted a "news item" on his website titled "Anti-gay zealot's daughter to star in Laramie Project." It was long vicious tirade against Amy, which he sent far and wide.

...Several months before, in May 2007, after Amy documented Youth Pride in Boston, Snyder announced on his website that he was going after her daughter: "Rumor has it that Amy's daughter is supportive of GSA's! We're on it!", wrote Snyder. (Just who was he in contact with at the school to find this out?)

...And there was more. A few days after Snyder's September posting, the Boston homosexual newspaper Bay Windows published an article about Claudia (which they're now denying they published, but which you can find here).

About this time, we've now found out, Mark Snyder started befriending Claudia -- first via email, then by telephone. He offered to be her "ally" in her struggles against her mother. He got her to admit him as a "friend" on her Facebook account. (We now have emails and telephone records of much of this.)

Judging from her emails at that time, Claudia was very confused but was relishing the positive attention, which she had rarely gotten among her peers at school. Besides her communication with Snyder, Claudia's name was turning up on various homosexual websites. Her drama club now started to consider her "cool". Claudia clearly felt special. But her behavior also became noticeably more erratic.

Then, in October, Acton-Boxborough High held a school-wide "coming-out day". The message to kids was that "coming out" as a homosexual or transgender was very progressive. Right after that, the entire following week was homosexual/transgender "ally" week, which the school tied to "The Laramie Project" play. Claudia was riding high. She suddenly decided to tell everyone that she's "really a lesbian".

What an outrageous, despicable thing to do to a vulnerable young woman. These people ought to be ashamed...
