Two 11-Year-Olds Receive Threats for Testifying Against Same-Sex Marriage
http://www.breitbart.com ^ | 31 Mar 2013 | by William Bigelow

Posted on 04/01/2013 8:25:35 AM PDT by Maelstorm

**snip

In January, Sarah Crank, 14, received death threats after testifying before the Maryland state senate. She testified:

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.

TFP Student Action, a Roman Catholic organization, recorded some of the threats on the YouTube video of Sarah’s speech went viral on homosexual websites. Some of them read:

If I ever see this girl, I will kill her. That’s a promise.

Her parents should be exterminated.

Kill this child and his [sic] parent, for my 11 birthday would be a wonderful gift, thanks.”

I hope you? get raped by your married parents.—madisonen;

Well... When you get death threats from the Left, you’ve won the argument.

Over and out.

As in the days of Lot, and the days of Noah, so will be the time of the return of Christ. Soon, Christians being killed for not going along. Now as a general lesson in life, this is what happens when you compromise morality for freedom. Feed wolves, and you will end up dog manure.

Every time the planet gets like this, it takes God to clean it out.

What you say by actions, then, is that America is already the land of the not-free. Would you tell them that, outright, as well, so they would know the reason to just keep quiet? Would you tell them that America is too dangerous a place to actually speak the truth?

What I would say is, “this is an issue we as a family care deeply about. Your mother and I will be going to talk to our representatives to discuss it on behalf of the family. We’ll let you know how it went when we get home, hang out with Granny and we will see you later tonight.” Leave your kids out of it, no good can come to them speaking out on an issue like this.

“Leaving your kids out of it” simply means that as a parent you really don’t believe in what you are telling your children about what is right and what is evil. This young girl has more sense and courage than you do. She definitely knows the difference between right and wrong. God bless her.

Second time the plate is wiped clean, Sodom was a surgical strike and does not count as a world wide affair. But Mathew 24 Luke and Mark all speak of the end of the days of Gentiles, and the coming of the day of the Lord’s Wrath. Revelation is a pretty interesting picture of the final train wreck. The 7th seal is the beginning of the flood so to speak.

We are watching the sea withdraw from the land, when the sun turns black and the moon turns red will be when the tide returns, with a vengance. That is the point that Gods wrath will begin to clean them out. The interesting thing is that when God turns up the heat He will do it slowly, to give everyone a chance to apologise.

But few will to the bitter end.

Then, a fresh start that will be the best thousand years this tired planet has ever known.

So you would silence your child?
You would teach them that their personal opinion is not valid? Or because it may engage others to threats that it is not safe and they should not speak out because of that? Or is it that you do not see that a 14 year old can actually have this personal belief?

Where do you live?

Where I live folks find it disgusting and believe the whole issue is simply another tool by which to destroy a traditional mostly Christian culture here

Do you have conservative pals?

Christian buds?

What do you think of homosexuality as a perversion?

Or allowing homosexual marriage...to be mandated

I think it has passed peoples vote once maybe....Oregon?

Elsewhere...even Kali voted down

First off the title is a BOLDFACED LIE.

The father of the 11 year-old is quoted in the same article that "we haven't had any physical threats" and the second child is FOURTEEN, not 11. Only one 11 year-old is mentioned in the piece so the Brietbart editor is trolling and engaging in Leftist-style propaganda.

I can't overlook the irony of screeching about higher standards, morality and so forth while using base techniques and subterfuge we supposedly abhor in the other side.

As for the 11 year old's testimony I actually agree with this general sentiment quoted: " this is gross and offensive, and not just to gay people. single mothers, widowers, divorced parents... i mean, just shut the **** up until you until you've seen a little more of the world, puppet child.”

That's PRECISELY what she is, a puppet child and I despise the use of children as props when the Left or the Right do it. We all see the children paraded by union thugs at strikes or even protesting in favor of abortion. She's saying my father was nothing because he lost both parents at a young age or my uncle is less of a man because his mother was widowed. Well, little miss know-it-all, who is going to swoop in and force all those children into two heterosexual parent situations for their own good? The State?

The 11 year-old is not offering testimony on relevant first-hand experience. She's not a product of an upbringing in one of those "same sex households. She's a prop. Shame on her father Jeff Evans for exploiting her in this manner.

As for the 14 year-old, she clearly has no idea how far traditional marriage is from "such a special thing" any more. Even before she was born, traditional marriage had become a throw away institution with some 40% of children coming from divorced heterosexual parents. As a People we don't even raise an eyebrow at the Baby Mamma / Baby Daddy culture of our cities.

She's living in the make-believe fantasy world of a child and NOT reality. As such, her naivete has no relevance to the problems of the real world and it's the job of government to act and react to real world.

She too is just another prop exploited by adults who didn't stand against the erosion of the cultural value of marriage during the last few decades and are now aghast when some others want IN instead of, as heterosexuals have done en masse, getting or staying OUT of marriage.

Don't use children in this manner even for what you see as a just cause. If we're going to demand better of our opposition, the ends must not be allowed to justify the means.

I look at some of the arguments tossed out and it's like your house burned down but you won't let somebody help you rebuild because you don't like the car they drive.

That would work fine for something like a legislative hearing, where the parents can represent the family - which is what you were objecting to.

Would you tell them to refrain from commenting about the issue in the contexts it comes up in for them - stuff like classrooms, Facebook, etc, where their identity is known?

Is it the wideness of the audience and public access to the comments, the lack of anonymity, or something else that bothers you about this girl testifying?

God doesn't need to think about it. He knows all, sees all that was and will be for all time. If we accept the reset button on humanity after The Flood and, arguably, again with Christ's Resurrection to happen for the last time with the Second Coming... what are we talking about here?

What gets me is that they dare get offended so often when they as a group tolerate and even justify this kind of offensive behavior. I know that both sides can get offensive but in my experience only one side typically gets browbeaten for it. I mean they have to trump up allegations of racism and extremism at tea party events but they never do an expose on left wing protests where the burn soldiers in effigy and or at pride events that have floats with some of the most obscene stuff on them riding down the street in front of kids. No they have their primary targets, its Christians and conservatives.

I didn’t make up the headline but that is really just splitting hairs. I mean would the headline “threats against children have been better” or “threats against an 11 year old and a 14 year old’? The question is do you think its ok to lob death threats or threats of rape against children for expressing support for children being raised by both a Mom and Dad in a heterosexual relationship rather than having two Mom’s and Donor or Two Dad’s a surrogate Mom etc.

Do you screech about higher standards for the “other side” which you clearly are on? Hmm maybe I missed the posts. Actually I can’t find one criticism of the homosexual thought police by you or their excesses when they claim “to be born that way”. Maybe I missed it. Hey I understand you support the homosexual agenda and that’s ok, its a free county we don’t have to agree on that. My question is do you really want schools teaching kids to wonder about whether they are really a girl or boy inside or whether they like boys while discussing the gonads of dolphins with grade schoolers?

I think the fact that you are so enraged isn’t because of the headline but because this exposes the essential threat to liberty of the progressive sex movement of which gay rights and same sex marriage is a part. Hell everyone can offend traditional families and Christians and conservatives all day long but let a homosexual be offended and its like one has committed a cardinal sin which can only be resolved by a public pillorying. It is funny to see sexual radicals who routinely present themselves in the most offensive and obscene fashion in the streets in front of children playing the victim of offense.

That you call these children puppet children exposes you for what you are. I feel sorry for you that you feel the need to support this kind of attack on children because you seem like someone who is fearful that maybe people will wake up and see the threat of the progressive gay movement and ssm marriage and how intolerant it is. Gays have every right to live how they wish but they don’t have the right to redefine marriage or the entire culture for everyone but that is exactly what they are trying to do and good people who disagree have an equal right to oppose them.

That sounds quite close to the argument leftists employ to premise their push into the public education realm. REALITY?

What reality are you referring to -is it an objective reality? Is it a reality best defined by the parents of the child or is it one vest defined by YOU?

Is this reality a sex positive reality that provides not only a sexual education but as well sexual training, free contraceptives and abortions with no need for parental consent? Where is the brave new world, this utopian vision of REALITY that you advocate?

You always seem to support the homosexual agenda -one would think that even a neutral bystander such as you would at least oppose the agenda by actions 50% of the time. Maybe your opposition is evidenced by silent reflection?

YOU are the puppet as far as I am concerned -a useful idiot puppet whose useful idiot postings have been read by me here on FR for many years.

I was referring to your comment on the Christian military guys you said “never talked about gay marriage”. Anyway, I interpreted that to mean they didn’t protest gay “marriage” or much else of the social engineering that goes on in this country. IOW’s, perhaps if WE got off our asses a bit more, we wouldn’t be in this mess.

It was only 5 years ago in Kali....I would not bank on that

Minnesota did not vote for gay marriage but against a DOMA on the ballot
Young folks have been brainwashed and many folks intimidated

Most of whom are not married anyhow

Poor folks of any color don’t bother to marry anymore much

None of which changes the notion of anal sexual fixation between men ,equated with marriage as actually absurd

The left uses this issue to further diminish social or Christian conservatismm

Its a tool in their war chest to make the state, humanism and the earth a deity troika

38 states have laws prohibiting same sex marriage

38 against .....30 of those are now in state constitutions by popular referendum

10 for...and 7 of those by Dem legislatures not popular vote

I don’t think anything has changed much

Gay states are flexing muscle and the media is hyping the shit out if it all and running their own polls and squashing negative studies due to it being before the court

My bet is court leaves it to states which baring a constitution amendment is fine

It does bug me how the left often wins by judicial fiat what it lost electorally

My first reaction to this was I remember a time when Obama went on stage with his “Executive Suggestions” after the Sandy Hook massacre, surroounded by 4 children who wrote him about their “feelings” about gun violence and the need to disarm everyone...

What I do not recal was anyone on our side of the issue calling for those kids to be killed, raped or otherwise harmed for their opinion...

Strange that these kids calling for the support of DOMA are being threatened in such a manner...

No one seems to be making a corrolation here that I have seen, so far...
