Dear Marriage Supporter,

Same-sex marriage advocates claim they are just asking for their rights and want to be left alone...that there are no consequences to redefining marriage.

But tell that to the 14-year-old girl who is getting death threats because she dared to stand up and tell the Maryland legislature to vote no on same-sex marriage.

And if you think it's bad now—just wait until after the bill is signed into law.

This marriage supporter, this is what NOM stands up to and fights against every day.

14-year-old Sarah Crank testified before the Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee on January 31st. She urged the committee to give her "the best birthday present ever," by "vot[ing] no on gay marriage." She continued:

"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."

She is brief, polite, and totally non-threatening. Just a happy, smart young girl.

But it obviously struck a chord because within minutes after her testimony was posted online, the comments quickly turned vicious and ugly.

As documented by TFP Student Action responses to her testimony included:

"And now everyone knows her name, so hopefully she will feel what its [sic] like to be harassed and bullied..."

"My god I hate people like this. Most (not all) Americans are [expletive] retards. If I ever see this girl, I will kill her. That's a promise."

"Her parents should be exterminated."

"The [sic] is why abortion must stay legal—to prevent little bigots like this from being Born..."

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

"Her belief is hurting other people. I will attack her as much as I please."

"Parents like hers should be sterilized..."

"I'm gonna kill 'er!"

Can you imagine the outrage if such comments were directed at one of the children of same-sex couples testifying FOR the same-sex marriage bill? It would be all over the national news.

And yet this young girl and her family, heroically standing for what they know is right, are harassed, bullied and even threatened with their lives.

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

Marriage Supporter, the fact is, radical same-sex marriage advocates are not about live-and-let-live.

AND IF WE DON'T TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW TO STOP THIS, IT WILL BE A NEW AMERICA WE LIVE in which same-sex marriage becomes law and anyone who disagrees will be bullied into silence; people of faith will be muzzled.

It's not too late—but we must fight back now.

Whatever the amount you can give, it is critical that you stand with us now and fight back against the radical forces that would see you silenced, threatened and harassed for simply believing that marriage is between a man and a woman. Just like they are trying to do to Sarah.

Thank you.
