Can you believe what we have to put up with to defend God’s institution of marriage?
Same-sex “marriage” supporters assaulted our volunteers at the recent Minnesota State Fair.
A 53-year-old female staff member was spit on – another volunteer was pushed over. And look at the photo below of this gay “marriage” extremist wearing an “Exterminate Christians One Bullet at a Time” T-shirt. Nobody should have to deal with a thug like that.
Meanwhile, a 22-year-old female campaign intern was glittered, and a person even commented about her on our Facebook page. He said, “Wow. I hope these two (expletive) end up ditch-side on the news one day.”
But that’s not all. A woman working for a vendor at the State Fair was bragging on her Twitter Account that she spit into the lemonade of a Vote Yes supporter. I sent a letter to the State Fair asking that the vendor remove her from working there. Sadly, the fair responded with:
“We did some digging on this one and there’s nothing to substantiate whether this occurred. Neither the State Fair Police or our Concessions & Exhibits Department have heard from any witnesses or complainants claiming to have seen or been the purchaser of the spat-in lemonade.”
The letter I sent included a picture of her tweet. I guess they didn’t take her at her word.
Vile. Disgusting. Appalling.
Most people who oppose the marriage protection amendment are polite, but increasingly our volunteers are met by an appalling and growing band of activists who will say or do anything to stop the amendment. This is what we’re up against, and it’s why we need your help today. Will you please donate $15, $25, $50, or even $100 today?
These thugs steal our signs, spit on our volunteers, throw glitter in their faces and wear threatening signs and shirts, not so subtly letting our people know what they think of our cause of defending marriage. But we’re not going to be intimidated. We know we are fighting for truth, and we know that you will stand with us throughout the battle.
There is good news! Over 18,000 of you state fair visitors signed our pledge to vote yes this November!
We will not give up on defending traditional marriage. Will you please help us with a donation? Whatever you can give will go a long way to ensuring we protect marriage.
Make no mistake – we will not tolerate threats like this toward volunteers who support same-sex marriage, and we will not be deterred from passing the marriage protection amendment.
As the campaign heats up we expect more threats, we expect more assaults, and we expect the other side will out raise and out spend us. But your generous donation of $15, $25, $50, or even $100 will help ensure that we protect marriage for our children and grandchildren.
