14-Year-Old Girl Receives Death Threats for Defending Marriage

 

Please keep this girl and her family in your prayers:

A 14-year-old homeschooler who testified before the Maryland state senate against a bill redefining marriage has been the subject of cyberbullying, vicious name-calling, and death threats.
...After audio of her uncharacteristically mature testimony was posted on YouTube, the story went viral on homosexual activist websites—and death threats quickly followed.

TFP Student Action, a Roman Catholic organization dedicated to traditional morality, recorded several of the most offensive threats in a press release. A commenter on the YouTube video wrote, “If I ever see this girl, I will kill her. That’s a promise.”

Other YouTube comments ranged from, “Her parents should be exterminated,” to, “Kill this child and his [sic] parent, for my 11 birthday would be a wonderful gift, thanks.”

A comment posted on LGBTNation.com said, ““And now everyone knows her name, so hopefully she will feel what its like to be harassed and bullied…”

Since TFP issued its press release, the comments have not moderated. Supporters of same-sex “marriage” continue to wish violence, sexual assault, or censorship upon the girl. -- LifeSiteNews

    It is interesting how so many people misinterpret the Catholic Church's stance on homosexuality. While we do not support the action/choice of homosexuality, nowhere in Church doctrine is there a teaching to hate anybody. We do not support your lifestyle choice, but Jesus loves everyone! The Church also does not call an individual 'gay' or 'lesbian', because to do so is to limit a person to their sexual orientation when there is so much more to an individual than just that. One program that the Church offers to people is Courage, a group designed to reach out to men and women who wish to make a change in their lives.

    Are there Christians out there that handle this debate poorly? Absolutely, just as there are people who advocate freedom of belief yet condemn Christians who do not agree with them. And no matter what the debate, no child should ever receive the threats that this child is getting, just as children who have same-sex attractions should not be bullied.

    I think this young girl has a right to voice her opinion.. just because it does not agree with the gay and lesbian community is no reason to go ballistic... there is a large percentage of americans that will never agree to the gay and lesbian community as a natural alternative life style... I am one... I don't hate gays and lesbians, but I don't approve of them trying to teach my children that that lifesyle is ok... As a christian I pray for them, but I do not accept their values.... just as they donot accept mine....

    That young lady should be able to take a stand for what is right without worrying about death threats. Shame on those people who are bullying and threatening her. Everyone is entitled to freedom of speech and should be able to speak without being threatened.

    Although threats against someone for stating their opinions is wrong, NOM and anti-gay supporters have been threating gays and issuing death threats against them everyday. Funny how you (NOM supporters) talk about how you are "victims" when the reality is you are and have always been the bullies in this fight. And like bullies, when you finally get treated the way that you have been treating others, you all cry and whine about how its unfair. Accept equality and mind your own business, stop focinging your beliefs on everyone else.

    "And no gay marriage group has said a word to denounce the threats."
