WASILLA, ALASKA, May 18, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – If homosexual activists have their way, Bristol Palin will not be dancing with the stars; she’ll be swimming with the fishes.
The daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin received vicious, hateful, and incendiary criticism – including death threats – after posting a blog registering her opposition to same-sex “marriage.”
She revealed the hatred she has endured in a follow-up post, “Hate in the Name of Love, Bullying in the Name of Tolerance,” earlier this week.
In addition to more than 3,000 comments – which she noted contained mostly bullying and name-calling but no arguments – she unveiled some of the readers’ comments deemed too offensive to post:
The reality television star is far from the only person opposing the radical homosexual activists’ attempt to redefine marriage to receive threats of violence.
Earlier this week vandals threatened to burn St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church in Acushnet, Massachusetts, to the ground after it posted a message on its church sign stating, “Two men are friends, not spouses.”
Sarah Crank, a 14-year-old homeschooler in Maryland, received death threats after testifying before a Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee in January. She said the children of same-sex couples “have no idea what kind of wonderful experiences they miss out on” by not having traditional parents.

Mars Hill Church in Portland had bricks thrown through its windows by self-proclaimed “angry queers” after a pastor affiliated with another one of its branches said homosexuality was sinful.
In an online video entitled “Attacked by Tolerance,” volunteers from the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) describe how they were physically attacked by homosexual activists after they took a stance for traditional marriage.
The younger Palin’s original post criticized Barack Obama for forming his views on marriage after consulting with his daughters Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10. Her mother, Bristol wrote, had been criticized in 2008 on the grounds that she might rely too heavily upon her husband Todd’s advice. “So let me get this straight,” Bristol wrote, “it’s a problem if my mom listened too much to my dad, but it’s a heroic act if the President made a massive change in a policy position that could affect the entire nation after consulting with his teenage daughters?”
Her critique was hardly the first time anyone had dared to criticize a president on the same grounds. During a 1980 debate, then-President Jimmy Carter said his teenage daughter Amy told him the most important issue facing the nation was nuclear arms control. Republicans ridiculed him for relying on his adolescent nuclear advisor. In a 1989 interview with PBS new anchor Jim Lehrer, President Carter admitted referencing the conversation was a mistake.
Palin noted part of the reason for the bullying she has endured is her status outside politics. “I’m more a part of pop culture,” she wrote. “When real pundits write blog posts, they don’t pop up in US Weekly… but mine do.”
She notes in Hollywood, “you won’t find there is any disagreement about things like gay marriage or abortion. For those folks, there’s one way to think, and anyone who disagrees is stupid, hypocritical, hateful, or bigoted.”
Bristol has chosen to remain a happy warrior after her baptism of fire.
“And I’m glad” about the backlash, she wrote. “Why? Because pop culture needs a little bit of debate.”
