“The attacks on freedom of thought start with language. Those who do not resign themselves to accept ‘homophilia’ are charged with ‘homophobia’.” –Cardinal Giacomo Biffi
Liberals are such tolerant people! If you don’t agree with them, they’ll tolerant you to death!
Ben Johnson reports for LifeSiteNews, Feb. 22, 2012, that a 14-year-old homeschooled girl testifed before the Maryland state senate against a bill redefining marriage and for that, she’s received cyberbullying, vicious name-calling, and death threats.
Testifying before the Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee last month, Sarah Crank, 14, said:
“I really feel bad for the kids who have two parents of the same gender. Even though some kids think it’s fine, they have no idea what kind of wonderful experiences they miss out on. People say that they were born that way, but I’ve met really nice adults who did change. Today’s my 14th birthday, and it would be the best birthday present ever if you would vote ‘no’ on gay marriage.”
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. (Warning, profanity):
- “I hope you get raped by your married parents.”—madisonen
- “Stupid bi**h – I hope you die on your Bday!!!!!”—geminiboi007
- “A dumb way for a dumb bi**h to do dumb things. Stop talking nonsense that your Christian, Anti-Gay parents are force-feeding you through a thin straw, and learn to accept other people. Now shut up bi**h, before I smack you.”—123adbnvcs
The full text of Sarah’s testimony:
“Hi, I’m Sarah Crank. Today’s my 14th birthday, and it would be the best birthday present ever if you would vote “no” on gay marriage. I really feel bad for the kids who have two parents of the same gender. Even though some kids think it’s fine, they have no idea what kind of wonderful experiences they miss out on. I don’t want more kids to get confused about what’s right and okay. I really don’t want to grow up in a world where marriage isn’t such a special thing anymore.
It’s rather scary to think that when I grow up the legislature or the court can change the definition of any word they want. If they could change the definition of marriage then they could change the definition of any word. People have the choice to be gay, but I don’t want to be affected by their choice. People say that they were born that way, but I’ve met really nice adults who did change. So please vote “no” on gay marriage. Thank you.”
Sarah should know that it is a federal crime, punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000, to transmit any communication containing a threat to injure the person of another, via the Internet and e-mail (as well as the telephone, beepers, and other means of communication). I urge Sarah’s parents to report these death threats to the police and the FBI.
Be brave, Sarah! We are praying for you.
