even-year-old Son of Massachusetts Pro-family Activist Attacked 6/22/2006

Incident occurs on second anniversary of same-sex “marriage” in the state.






A mob of schoolchildren seized and beat the 7-year-old son of pro-family activist David Parker behind his school, Estabrook Elementary, in Lexington, Massachusetts, recently, on the second anniversary of same-sex “marriage” in Massachusetts.


The victim, first-grader Jacob Parker, apparently is feeling the heat for his father’s opposition to forced pro-homosexual education.


“When you tell children over and over that opposing homosexuality amounts to hatred, you’re setting some kids up for this sort of abuse,” said Robert Knight, Director of Concerned Women for America’s (CWA’s) Culture & Family Institute. “The school posted numerous slanted articles in the school library about Mr. Parker’s dispute with authorities, and some parents went out of their way to stir up hatred toward Parker and his family. It seems tolerance is a one-way street today in Massachusetts.”


David Parker first made headlines when police arrested him in April 2005 for “trespassing” on his son’s school property. Parker had been meeting with the principal requesting to be informed when Jacob’s classroom teacher included discussions about homosexuality. When the school refused to give parental notice, Parker refused to leave the premises. Parker was jailed for the night, received a $1,000 fine and told to never visit the school again. He was even barred from entering school grounds during a recent election, when the school was a polling site.


“This is not about creating a forum for hate . . . for any segment of society,” Parker said, according to a Boston Globe article on boston.com. “I'm just trying to be a good dad.”


On May 17 during recess, eight to ten children encircled Jacob and took him around the corner of a building, out of sight of the playground monitor. One boy in particular administered the beating, punching Jacob in the chest, stomach and genital areas. The mugging appeared premeditated. Finally, a little girl ran to inform a teacher’s aide. The teacher decided that since Jacob showed no signs of bleeding or punches to the face, he didn’t need to go to the nurse. None of the students was suspended.


Many observers believe it’s not coincidental that this happened on the “gay-marriage” anniversary in Massachusetts. Parker’s clash with the school over homosexuality is well-known in the community. Local residents have publicly demonstrated against him, even soliciting their children to participate. Parker doesn’t blame the students, instead referring to the situation as “displaced aggression.”


Brian Camenker, president of Massresistance.com, which first reported the incident last week, told CWA that David Parker “wanted to wait a few weeks to see what the school would do. He did a little soul-searching before going public with this.”


On the advice of his attorney, who has filed a federal lawsuit alleging violation of parents’ First Amendment rights against the school district on behalf of Parker and some other parents, Parker declined to comment to CWA on the May 17 incident with his son.


Recently the school superintendent asked three different government agencies to investigate the beatings. All three mysteriously declined.


Parker earlier told another interviewer that his son should not have to be the one to leave a public school. However, he added, “There are limits to how much patience we can have. I certainly understand why more and more parents are pulling their children out of public schools,” according to Lifesitenews.com.


This event wasn’t the first time Estabrook Elementary School has made homosexuality-related news. One mother was shocked to learn that her son’s second-grade teacher had read aloud a book called King and King, a fairy tale in which the prince weds his true love—another male. The illustrations include the two men kissing. The teacher defended her actions, saying that because Massachusetts has “gay marriage,” parents have no right to be informed about such materials.

I thought the Voting Rights Act prevented anyone from infringing on the rights of someone to cast a ballot. I guess the Constitution and Bill of Rights are not color blind after all. The Federal Marshalls usually escort the voter to the polls if they are prevented from participating.

That is complete crap. How can none of the students be suspended when they have witnesses and clear evidence?! This is clear discrimination.They need to terminate the teacher(s) and the principal who let this gross injustice slip away..."displaced agression"...thats just a cover up to let the kids go unpunished for beating a child. I think Parker needs a beating. And so does the teacher who didnt let the kid even go to the nurse...That is just outrageous!

Political Corectness once again. Since the kid is the son of a Conservative father that is against same-sex marriage (Which I am too by the way). The folks in charge in Kennedy Country of stated that it's okay to beat up a Conservative thinker.

Real great parenting ... this isn't just Political Correctness (PC) run amok, this is the proof that hate isn't inherited ... it's taught. The parents of the children that were involved in the attack by their words and actions at home taught their children to hate and that it would be alright to resort to violence ... the children shouldn't be punished ... every parent of these children should be pilloried. In case you don't know what that is ... it's means they would placed in stocks in the village square and their fellow citizens would be allowed the opportunity to make their feelings known, via the rotten fruit and mud that gets thrown at the "sinners".

I realize that this is old fashioned ... but ... I can't for the life of me come up with a more fitting punishment for these parents.

Nah, I say quartermastered.(The four horses tied to an arm or leg and then send the horses in opposite directions.)I think that could be fitting.

I dont mean to burst anyone bubble but nowhere in the article does it say the fight broke out because of a fathers political/religous beliefs. It just implies that is the reason due to a coincidential date.

I was a camp consellor for several years at a Boys camp in the Adirondack Mountains in NY. I was in charge of 12x 9 year olds and I while I remember lots of fights, teasings, and Bullings, I don't remember A SINGLE ONE that stemmed as a result of a Political/Religous discussion. Most of my guys didnt even know what a homosexual was (they were 9 not 7). So I have a hard time believing that a bunch of SEVEN YEAR OLDS got together and decided to beatup a boy because HIS DAD is conservative. What do they do next? Go home to discuss possible stock market fluctuations due to the Feds interest rates hikes? . Lets also be honest, the source of this story is an organisation seems to a far right Christian group. Not exactly the most tolerant bunch of people I have ever met, espically toward gays. One of the other articles on the site is HATE CRIME LAWS THREATEN RELIGOUS FREEDOM (meaning freedom to hate gays according to the article). Oh yeah, real tolerant bunch of folks...

And even on the off chance that was true, what is this group trying to accomplish? Is it really trying to compare Gay on Strieght violent is equal to Strieght on Gay. Because if it is, it might want to recheck its numbers on violent homophobic crimes per year. Matthew Shepard anyone?

I think you're right, 7 year olds don't function at that high a level. But I also think that if Mommy or Daddy are always talking about how horrible someone is, or something along those lines, than it is gong to influence someone who is that young. I don't think the number of violent crimes on a group of people matters. There should be NONE towards any person or group. Just because more violence happens towards one group of people than another, that doesn't mean we should discount all other violence. I think it's inappropriate that the bullies weren't suspended for what they did. Where I live if anyone tried that, they'd be run out of town.
