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 Cathys 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.
Perkins group, one of the countrys most high-profile advocacy groups against redefining marriage, had strongly supported Cathys 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.
"...????...mmmm might be a bit of a streeeeeetch"
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’s being reported in the SF Chonicle....they are actually saying the shooter is a volunteer at an LGBT center.
AP confirms the Family Research Council shooter is a liberal activist
WOW color me shocked..a liberal whack job, I didnt see that one coming/sarc..
I got even $$ that says the Chik-Fil-A material is was carrying came from a left-wing LGBT website.
Who’s with me?
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.
Would not doubt it.
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.”
LOL, that little narcissistic nut wore makeup for his planned fifteen minutes of fame. Didn’t notice that before.
they must read the FR. (earlier thread, posted from myself :)
What? Is this guy a Fundamental Chick-Fil-A-ist?
Everybodys gotta believe in something.
