No matter how you feel about the issue of gay marriage, no one deserves to be treated the way these students were.

The price of free speech is having to sometimes hear things you don’t agree with.

VIDEO: Man attacks students’ traditional marriage rally at Johns Hopkins Univ.

A small, peaceful rally in support of traditional marriage by Catholic students at Johns Hopkins University turned violent after an angry onlooker aggressively got in the young students’ faces and broke one of their cameras, a video of the incident published Thursday shows.

The Oct. 23 rally was hosted by TFP Student Action, a conservative student Catholic advocacy group, as part of its “street campaign,” in which its members travel to different locations to demonstrate in support of traditional marriage with signs such as “God’s marriage =’s 1 man & 1 woman” and “honk for traditional marriage.”

But the recent demonstration in front of Johns Hopkins University turned ugly when an unnamed assailant pushed a young volunteer then “turned against TFP member Matthew Miller, 20, and started throwing punches at his video camera,” the group reports on its website, citing its video.

“As a result of the attack, the camera was severely damaged and its external microphone completely destroyed,” the group adds.

In the two-minute video, the man – whose face was blurred in the edited video – says “we are going to beat the living shit out of you” as a student says “insults are not arguments, sir.”

Then the man gets physical as students in the background begin to repeatedly chant “aggressor” and one student tells him: “Step away, step away, sir. We’re here totally peacefully,” the video shows.

“I’m not,” the man replied.

John Ritchie, director of TFP Student Action, said the police are still investigating the incident.
