Fathers' Group Raps Cellucci Nomination

Urges 'No Reward' for Cellucci in Bush Administration


BOSTON, March 6 – In a letter to Sen. Jesse Helms, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, the Fatherhood Coalition condemned Gov. Paul Cellucci as "anti-father, anti-family," and urged that he be rejected for the ambassadorship to Canada.

The Fatherhood Coalition is a statewide fathers rights organization with local chapters operating across the state.

In the strongly worded letter, Cellucci was derided for "pandering to the politically correct, socially destructive elements that threaten the moral foundation of our great nation."


To the decent, hard-working, moral citizens of our state, it feels like Massachusetts is suffering under an enemy occupation.   Using the euphemisms of tolerance, diversity, teen-suicide prevention, and public safety, common sense and morality have been turned on their head.

- Mark Charalambous, Spokesman


The letter comes on the heels of Brian Camenker's visit last Thursday to Washington, DC. Camenker, president of Waltham-based Parents' Rights Coalition, met with members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in an attempt to derail the Cellucci nomination because of the state's gay sex-education programs promoted under his leadership. The Fatherhood Coalition joins thirteen other Massachusetts organizations that have requested Cellucci be denied the post.

According to CPF Spokesman Mark Charalambous:

"Paul Cellucci inherited his social agenda from his predecessor William Weld. In a state where the Republican party is in danger of becoming a third party, Cellucci's election strategy seeks to balance fiscal conservatism with the radical, social-engineering agenda of feminists and homosexual activists.

"To the decent, hard-working, moral citizens of our state, it feels like Massachusetts is suffering under an enemy occupation. Using the euphemisms of tolerance, diversity, teen-suicide prevention, and public safety, common sense and morality have been turned on their head:

"All operate under the Paul Cellucci administration and all receive the blessings of Paul Cellucci."
