FRC shooter carried Chick-Fil-A materials: officials

WASHINGTON, August 15, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The suspect arrested for shooting a security guard after attempting to enter the Family Research Council headquarters was carrying paraphernalia related to Chick-Fil-A, the restaurant chain that came under fire last month for supporting traditional marriage, according to reports.

Federal officials said the suspect, identified as Floyd Corkins, of Herndon, Virginia, “was carrying a backpack containing materials related to Chick-fil-A restaurants,” according to NBC.

In an earlier report, Fox News said that sources claimed the gunman “may have been carrying a bag from Chick-fil-A.”

Chick-Fil-A was condemned by gay rights leaders and several mayors for CEO Dan Cathy’s expression of Biblical beliefs regarding the sanctity of marriage, remarks that touched off renewed opposition to Chick-Fil-A for donating to “hate groups,” including the Family Research Council.

Perkin’s group, one of the country’s most high-profile advocacy groups against redefining marriage, had strongly supported Cathy’s statements as well as the “Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day” that drew tens of thousands of Americans to the restaurant chain in an expression of support.

I’m sure the media will blame this on Chick-Fil-A. If CFA weren’t so hateful this guy wouldn’t have been forced to shoot someone.

The major news networks will surely get to the bottom of this...

The phrase “materials related to Chick-fil-A” strikes a false note.

I get the sense that there’s something the media want to verbally tiptoe around, there.

“Related to.”. Hmmm.

It would appear that Ms Gilbert has a little bit of an agenda going on here.

This is what can happen when a mainstream religious organization is demonized as a hate group.

He was a greeter at the front desk. He would shoot Chic-Fil-A deliverymen.

Something along those lines, maybe more than just a bit on the inflammatory side, maybe even reeling off other organizations to target.

There’s a reason for the oddly circumspect wording. Always is.

After this guy threw away a very high-paying job to verbally attack Chik-fil-A, I'd say anything is possible.

I’m thinking Big Media has been given the green light to report as big as they want on ANY sensational story to keep Hussein or anything R R has to say out of the news.

Some Hussein Head handler somewhere has said, “Look, we can win this if we just keep the messiah AND Romney/Ryan out of the big headlines.”

Might just be Transition Lenses but I noticed that shot in the video and wondered if somebody had captured it.

Apparently somebody did. I don’t know where else it can be found but bookmarked that one.

Did you see him going up to the guy carrying a Cross?

(you can only hear him but the voice is apparently the same)

A flaming liberal attacks a known Christian organization while spouting hateful rhetoric..... Nope, nothing here. Move along, folks, move along.

“Hate groups.” LOL!!!!

So, do we have 44 “hate states,” then?

Is the Boy Scouts of America a “hate” youth organization?

Are 95% of American companies who employ American citizens “hate groups,” because they don’t kowtow to homosexual perverts?

When nearly everyone becomes a “hater” because of one radical group’s insane definition, the word loses all meaning.
