BURIEN, Washington, October 17, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A volunteer working on a campaign in support of traditional marriage, as well as a pregnant bystander, were shaken up after a heated confrontation this weekend with a homosexual activist.
Arlene Mark, a volunteer for Preserve Marriage Washington, which is urging voters to reject a ballot measure to legalize homosexual marriage, says the attack began while she was waiting in her car to distribute literature to other volunteers.
According to Arlene, a man ran at her car, hit the back of it and ripped the Reject 74 campaign sign off the side. Arlene had taped the sign onto her vehicle so that other volunteers who were going to meet her in the parking lot could recognize her.
Arlene related in a press conference yesterday that as the man tore the sign, threw it on the ground, and stomped on it, he yelled, This is what I think of your fing sign! Im gay and proud of it. The man then reportedly shouted profanities at Arlene calling her a b and screaming f you!
Nikki Davis, a woman who was sitting in a van parked next to Arlenes vehicle, but who was not involved in the Reject Referendum 74 campaign, then tried to come to Arlenes aid.
Nikki, who is pregnant, said the man began to hurl racial slurs at her, including calling her a black b and the n-word, and telling her to go back to Africa. She says he also pounded on the back of her van, and kicked its tires.
Nikki, who was terrified for Arlene, for herself, and for her children who were with her in the car, called the police.
Before the police arrived the man drove away, but witnesses were able to record the license plate number of the getaway car, and turned the information over to the police
According to a spokesman for the Reject R-74 campaign, the attack shows that those promoting same-sex marriage are not as tolerant and open-minded as they would like voters to believe.
Its outrageous that the Approve R-74 campaign call themselves the voice of tolerance and moderation and want people to feel bad for rejecting the referendum. There was nothing tolerant or moderate about attacking Arlene and Nikki, said Preserve Marriage Washington communications director Chip White.
Arlene, who is a grandmother, said the attack only strengthened her resolve to help ensure that Referendum 74 is rejected.
The other side wants to intimidate us, but we cant stop standing up for traditional marriage. Im not giving up. Protecting traditional marriage is just too important for our kids and grandkids, said Arlene. I dont want my grandkids taught in public school that same-sex marriage is the same as traditional marriage.
A bill to legalize same-sex marriage was passed (http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/washington-state-senate-passes-gay-marriage-bill) by the Washington state Senate, with the support of Democrat governor Christine Gregoire, in February.
However, the new law was halted one day before it was set to come into effect, after Preserve Marriage Washington collected and filed over 240,000 signatures opposing the redefinition of marriage. The measure was then placed as a referendum to be brought to a vote on the November 6, 2012 ballot.
Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage and a member of the Executive Committee of Preserve Marriage Washington, said that the successful signature campaign in Washington demonstrates the deep support that traditional marriage enjoys and sets the stage for a tremendous victory for marriage this November.
We are confident of victory, Brown declared. Thirty-two states in America have voted on marriage and every one has stood for traditional marriage, and rejected redefining marriage. We have no doubt that Washington State will do the same.

if our side stoped being cowards , yes you Hannity and co then we could get this info out tot he public and show how the homostapo uses NAZI tactics and thuggery and show how intolerant they are.;
Burien, a small suburb of Seattle that is mostly lower to middle income. I live there.
I believe the gentleman meant to say "I am an angry sodomite, who has become progressively deranged over years of indulging in a perverse lifestyle!"
"Gay" used to be a nice word - expressing a happy go lucky lifestyle ... now it has been turned into something quite the opposite. And sad to see a human being choose depravity and darkness and a march towards hell rather than hope and light. Madness.
“but witnesses were able to record the license plate number of the getaway car, and turned the information over to the police”
The homosexual attacker in the parking lot was just angry that he and his partner would never have a real family if they “married”... because any children in that “marriage” would be denied a loving mother.
I refuse to use the wordgay when it comes ot homosexuals and always correct folks if I hear them saying it.
They take a word , a positive word and then put it on to their sick agenda
seriously evryone needs an inexpensive recording device on them in public for stuff just like this. evidence plus we have outlets to get this stuff viewed by people to se exactly what the other side is really all about.
Way back in the late 1970s I was walking by Pioneer Courthouse Square in Portland, OR, when two men blocked my way, spit on me and yelled in my face “BREEDER SHIT!”
Not surprised how little has changed among homosexuals.
I hope you decked him, or someone with you did.
Sodomite is what the Bible calls them. That’s good enough for me.
good thing that happened in OR, not here in AL you spit in someones face, they’ll double tap you in the head....
They always go after the Grandmothers because they are cowards. They know that if an old lady slaps them they can squeal like pigs and the cops will arrest the old lady.
I love how the “gay” community always preaches “TOLERANCE, TOLERANCE” but the moment you disagree with them, they show their TRUE colors as the hate mongers they really are.
