EDITOR'S NOTE: The following includes descriptions of adult themes and objectionable subject material.
A Massachusetts organization that promotes families says teachers in the state were offered professional credit for attending a now-infamous 2000 seminar in which students were instructed in lewd homosexual practices.
According to tresearch by staff and volunteers for Mass Resistance, the state Department of Education formally recognized the conference organized by the Gay, Lesbian Straight Education Network and supervised by Kevin Jennings â€“ now President Obama's chief of the education department's office of "safe schools" â€“ with the credit.
"Kevin Jennings and his organization GLSEN worked hand in hand with the Massachusetts Department of Education," the Mass Resistance report documents. "The DOE has tried to distance itself from the infamous GLSEN-Boston Fistgate conference in 2000. But that won't wash. They were in this together."
In May, WND broke the news of Jennings' federal appointment to oversee "safety" in the nation's public schools.
WND also reported Jennings' background of homosexual activism, his founding of GLSEN and his agenda, including when it was revealed a publisher of "gay erotica" sought him out to write a book aimed at encouraging homosexuality in high schools and colleges.
The result was "Becoming Visible," which opens with, "Why teach gay and lesbian history? â€¦ Indeed, as lesbian and gay studies has emerged as a discipline over the last two decades, its dramatic discoveries have shown it to be one of the most exciting fields in contemporary historical scholarship."
Researchers at Mass Resistance said Sasha Alyson of Alyson Publications asked Jennings to do the book.
In Jennings' acknowledgments for the book, he writes, "Writing this part of the book has caused me more anxiety than any other. It simply is not possible to express my gratitude to the many people who have helped make this book possible. ... With apologies to anyone omitted, here we go! The obvious place to begin is with Alyson Publications. First, Sasha Alyson had the vision to conceive of this project, and I had the good luck to be the person he sought out to complete it. I am deeply appreciative of being afforded this opportunity."

There have been multiple reports about the Massachusetts school seminar 10 years ago sponsored by GLSEN that included instructors providing explicit direction on homosexual activities, such as "fisting."
The subject has been raised as a direct challenge to Jennings' fitness to hold office, and as WND has reported, several dozen members of Congress have signed a letter to President Obama demanding his dismissal.
