    If you go to the D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Virginia, you will see a moving tableau, a series of statues of the brave young Americans who stormed ashore on June 6, 1944 to liberate a continent from the grip of Adolf Hitler. One of these statues is called “Death on the Shore.” It shows a soldier who was cut down as he left his landing craft. His Bible is seen falling out of his rucksack. That Bible included an endorsement from President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The body of this young man, one of the many from the little Southwest Virginia...

    "He was going to go through and kill as many people as he could and drop Chick-fil-A bags at every dead body to send a signal that he was reacting to the — our stance on traditional marriage, that being between a man and a woman." The media has gone AWOL on the shooting by an apparent deranged leftist at the Family Research Council in Washington DC this week. Friend of the show (ret) General Boykin was at the building when the incident occurred and gives an incredible account of what happened. It’s a great story of heroics – so...
  • Only ABC Offers Full Story on Shooting at FRC; CBS, NBC Blow It Off

    ABC was the only broadcast network that offered a full story on the FRC office shooting on Wednesday night. They led with the story and gave it two and a half minutes. None of the network newscasts reported the breaking detail that shooter Floyd Corkins volunteered for six months at the D.C. Center for the LGBT Community, adding depth to his political motivation. On NBC Nightly News, Brian Williams gave the story just 17 seconds: “In Washington today, police say a man with a gun walked into the offices of the conservative lobbying group the Family Research Council, and opened...

    Two people, including one security guard, were shot at the office of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., this morning. “The police are investigating this incident,” said FRC President Tony Perkins in a statement on the shooting. “Our first concern is with our colleague who was shot today. Our concern is for him and his family.” The shooter was also reportedly shot, according to a local news report, which notes that the FBI is at the scene. The Family Research Council is a socially-conservative non-profit that participates in cultural debates about abortion, traditional marriage, and religious liberty.

The suspect "made statements regarding their policies, and then opened fire with a gun striking a security...

    Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin (CNSNews.com) - Retired Army Lt. Gen. William G. "Jerry" Boykin--an original member of Delta Force who went on to be the top commander of the Green Berets and then deputy undersecretary of defense for intelligence--has joined the Family Research Council, where he says he now hopes to do his part in helping Americans who believe in this nation’s traditional values win an intensifying “culture war” for its future. “As I have gotten older, I have discovered it is no longer about me, it’s about my grandchildren,” Gen. Boykin said on Thursday, as the FRC...

    CENTRAL, La. — When a nationally influential evangelical leader gathered dozens of pastors at his home church to hear from a presidential candidate, he had a simple message: Rick Santorum is one of us, and your parishioners should vote for him. Nearly a hundred pastors from all over Louisiana and from as far away as Texas and Colorado accepted Family Research Council President Tony Perkins' invitation to hear a personal pitch Sunday from the former Pennsylvania senator, who met with them in a private briefing before he addressed the more than 1,400 faithful who crowded into the sanctuary at Greenwell...

    The small but grandiose building at the corner of Eighth and G Streets NW in Washington, tucked directly behind the National Portrait Gallery, holds its own in a city packed with monumental architecture. You step into the lobby and automatically look around for a plaque, figuring that with its dark wood paneling and marble columns, this must be the onetime home of Rutherford B. Hayes or some other historical personage heavy with Victorian-era dignity. As it turns out, the structure, with its architectural signals of tradition and power, was built in 1996 for its tenant: the Family Research Council, the...

    Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist will draw a chorus of amens Sunday when thousands of evangelicals across the United States hear his call to put more conservative judges on the federal bench. But even as the Tennessee Republican addresses "Justice Sunday" -- a 90-minute simulcast to conservative churches that enthusiastically backs a Senate rule change to speed nominations -- the leader faces apprehension from another key GOP constituency. The country's leading business lobbying associations, close GOP allies in recent legislative efforts and political campaigns, have told senior Republicans that they will not back the Frist initiative to force votes on...

    Rick Scarborough, temporary chairman of the Judeo-Christian Council for Constitutional Restoration (organizer of the conference Confronting The Judicial War On Faith – April 7-8 in Washington, DC) offered his heartfelt thanks to Congress and President Bush for passing emergency legislation to save the life of Terri Schiavo. "Thank God we have a Congress and president who care enough about a life imperiled to intervene in this case," Scarborough commented. "Like the 1960s, when state courts ignored clear-cut violations of civil rights, federal intervention is necessary. The legislation that passed in the early hours of this morning will facilitate that." Scarborough...

    Counting Down to February 11th "To have the party behind this issue is a blessing to me and every lesbian, bisexual, and transgender. It's a historic day." So said Massachusetts Democrat Tom Barbera, after the Bay State Democratic Party leadership voted to support a resolution calling for same-sex "marriage" in that state. At the same time, the Virginia House of Delegates voted 77-18 in favor of a resolution calling on the U.S. Congress to immediately pass a federal marriage amendment. The Arizona state legislature is considering a similar measure, more proof that states around the nation are looking to the...

    Christian Right Talks of Bolting GOP in 2004 Phil Brennan, NewsMax.com Tuesday, May 6, 2003 Leaders of the Christian right are thinking of bolting the Republican Party in 2004. Such a move would deal a severe blow to President Bush’s re-election effort. Though Christian voters played a pivotal role in electing Bush in his razor-thin victory over Al Gore, NewsMax has learned that major figures in the evangelical movement, including James Dobson, are talking about withholding support from the Republican Party. Conservative religious activists cite the latest insult: the Republican Party’s failure to rally behind Sen. Rick Santorum, whose comments...
