North Carolina teen Madeleine McAulay claims she received death threats after she criticized President Obama's support for gay marriage.

Appearing on Fox News' Fox & Friends, the 16-year-old conservative discussed the reaction she has received from her YouTube video in which she cheers passage of Amendment One, North Carolina's gay marriage ban, and jeers Obama's explanation of his support for civil marriage for gay couples.

“I'm not going to lie, I was a bit shocked to hear how he came to his conclusion to his support of gay marriage – his daughters? That's right, the president of the United States now looks to his young daughters to make major decisions,” she said in her 3-minute video.

“Now, I don't hate gay people, so stop saying that do. I simply believe that traditional marriage is the most productive way and the biblical way to pursue a relationship. It has proven to be the healthiest environment for children. I also believe that marriage is not just some right. It's making a covenant with God,” she added.

On Fox News, McAulay told host Steve Doocy: “Within, I think, two days, I had over 1,000 views. And, you know, the hatred and the vile, vulgar, disgusting comments starting coming in and over the past few days, they have gotten totally extreme and complete inappropriate.”

“[T]here are some death threats there,” Doocy stated.

“Yes. That was the first time yesterday that I had ever received, you know, kind of death wishes and that was quite interesting, to get that feeling.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

However, an actual comment threatening McAulay's life could not be found on her site

And left out of the discussion was the fact that the majority of commenters on her site praised her views and some condemned being gay.

“Proponents of the unhealthy homosexual lifestyle imagine that this will 'legitimize' their sin in the view of society at large,” one wrote.

“Yes being gay or taking part in homosexuality is a sin, you obviously haven't read the Bible! Read the following before you comment so you don't look like an idiot again,” wrote another who referenced Leviticus 20:13, a Bible passage which says gay men ought “to be put to death.”

UPDATE: McAulay has informed us that the “death wish” she received was located in the comments section of a different post than the one we linked to. In the post re: Vulgar Comments from 'Controversies of Gay Marriage,' a commenter with the username Sarah Palin's Vagina wrote, “I would love to see a[n] angry mob of gay people chase you down and murder your a$$.” McAulay also tweeted to her followers: “@ontopmag responded to my corrections denying death wishes & also saying I'm responsible for the hatred against gays in my blog's comments” and “I don't hate gay people, and I don't condone those who do. I have said that many times before.”
