Angry mother files bill in Mass. Legislature after son was referred to outside "gay" club by school. Gives powerful testimony at public hearing.
Fights back with support from MassResistance
POSTED: October 11, 2013
The outrageous promotion of homosexuality to extremely vulnerable children in the public schools -- without concern about how it affects them -- has become legendary, particularly in Massachusetts.
This is the story about how one angry mother, with support from MassResistance, is fighting back. She is confronting the Massachusetts Legislature, pushing a bill she had her State Representative file to protect other children and their families from going through what happened to her family.
Certain traumas during the formative years are known to cause sexual identity issues during adolescence. Most children outgrow this confusion unless otherwise influenced, which is why homosexual activists want unfettered access to public school children.
When the Splitz family's son had experienced such traumas, their pediatrician referred him for counseling and by all accounts it was working wonderfully. The boy was happy, vibrant and quite active in church and other extracurricular activities. He excelled in school and was also very close to his family -- a model teenager.
The nightmare begins
But then, while attending high school at Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical School in Bourne, Massachusetts, things changed dramatically. He suddenly became distant, angry and disrespectful to his parents as well as to other adults he had once respected. He quit his church activity and many of his other activities, and almost flunked his junior year of school. Life at home became stressful and chaotic.
His parents learned that he had mentioned to the school's "adjustment counselor" that he thought he might be "gay." The counselor then gave him the business card of a local "gay youth" club run by adult homosexual activists and suggested he look into it.
At the "club" he was told in very strong terms that he was born gay, could never change, that trying to change was dangerous and apparently was introduced into the homosexual lifestyle by the activists there. Furthermore, he was instructed that anyone who didn't embrace his "gay" sexual identity was a hater and a homophobe including his parents. He was also provided with sexually provocative homosexual literature as well as anti-Christian literature.
He now considered himself "gay" and rebelled against his parents for not embracing his "identity." The high school continued to subvert the parents, taking further steps to alienate their son from them.
The Splitz family's nightmare continued as guidance counselors, administrators, and the Department of Education stonewalled them, lied to them, and manipulated them in ways that deeply wounded the family and put their son at risk.
Fighting back -- files bill in Mass. Legislature
Their son is now in college out of state and the family is trying to heal now that he is away from certain influences, and he is finally realizing that his parents have never stopped loving him. But Mrs. Splitz is fighting back against those who violated her parental rights and religious liberties, and greatly harmed her son.
Several months ago she contacted MassResistance and we've been working with her ever since. With the help of her state representative, Randy Hunt (R-Sandwich) she has filed a bill, H427 (see text below) which would ban school officials from referring children to outside organizations (not only homosexual organizations but also abortion clinics, etc.) without parental notification. The bill has bi-partisan support with 12 co-sponsors. And Mrs. Splitz has begun confronting the Legislature directly, and intends to continue.
Confronting the politicians on issue they'd rather avoid
This past Tuesday, October 8, she testified before the Joint Education Committee along with her state representative. MassResistance was also there. We had helped her prepare her testimony, but we didn't need to do much -- she isn't pulling any punches. In addition to listing some of the injustices done to her family, she also pointed out the Constitutional protections which provide that parents have the right to rear their children according to their values without interference from the government, including government-run public schools
Besides her testimony, she also submitted to the committee excellent documentation regarding the causes of homosexual confusion in children and teenagers, and the serious and sometimes deadly health risks associated with homosexual behavior -- which schools blindly promote as a "natural" alternative lifestyle. She also referenced a statement from the Ethical Standards for School Counselors declaring the legal rights of parents to be "the guiding voice in their children's lives, especially in value-laden issues." (Section A.2. Confidentiality, paragraph d.)
House Bill 427 joins the other bills that MassResistance has filed and/or supports that are now before the Massachusetts Legislature and which parents across the state are championing. We must put a stop to the Commonwealth's war on children regarding the promotion of reckless and destructive sexual, homosexual, and transgender behaviors and identities, robbing them of their innocence and putting them at emotional as well as physical risk.
Tuesday's hearing before the Joint Education Committee was in the cavernous Gardner Auditorium in the Mass. State House. There were a number of bills that day that attracted a flood of special-interest testimony and it was nearly two hours before Mrs. Splitz and Rep. Hunt were called up. But from our standpoint, her testimony was definitely worth waiting for:
TESTIMONY BY DIANE SPLITZ:

And more -- documentation for committee
Accompanying her testimony, Diane Splitz submitted the following documentation to the committee. It's a good bet they've never looked at these before:
Text of the bill and its sponsors
Here's the bill that Diane Splitz filed through her state representative, Randy Hunt:
Bill #427: An Act relative to parental notification for out-of-school-district counseling referrals
A battle begins
This was by no means an isolated incident. We're aware of many similar situations in other families. It's happening across Massachusetts and throughout the country. There needs to be a thousand more like Mrs. Splitz.
