Homophobia + Family Tragedy On Facebook

My cousin (who lives 1000 miles away and who I haven't seen in at least 15 years) posted a link on Facebook to some nasty article against gay marriage. There was even a part that mentioned Jerry Sandusky, where the author obviously wanted to equate homosexuality with pedophilia. Here's the thing: my cousin's father committed suicide a few weeks ago, and it was a terrible shock to the whole family. Would it be insensitive of me to post a long, detailed response to her comment - especially when I don't normally post to her Facebook feed - in defense of gay marriage? It's not mean, in fact I think it's reasoned and rational, but it does mention religion and Christianity several times (basically how they should have no say in my rights as a U.S. citizen or as a human being) and my cousin is very religious. Maybe to some people this seems like a silly question, but I don't want my family to think I'm a total jerk for "harassing" my cousin so soon after her father's shocking death.
