    Take this image in given everything we now seem to know of events at the Family Research Council today. The DC Center, where the suspect volunteered under David Mariner promoted a "Chicks-for-Gays" protest recently as part of the Chick-fil-A intimidation campaign. SNIP OF IMAGE It seems puzzling to me that prominent LGBT activist David Mariner would disconnect his Facebook connection to an individual who appears to be the Family Research Council shooting suspect, before going to Newser to make this statement: '"Mariner describes Corkins as "kind, gentle and unassuming."' In comments, Bill Hobbs claims he dropped the friendship immediately after...

    ...Presumed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney reacted quickly, long before most cable news networks even reported the crime, releasing a statement condemning the act. The Human Rights Council, which just a day ago labeled the FRC a “hate group” for its traditional values, even tweeted that its hearts went out to the FRC. But a look at President Obama’s twitter timeline shows no reaction to the attack at all.

    Huffington Post has an article promoted on its front page, published today at 1:36pm, from an “LGBT rights activist” referring to the Family Research Council as an “extreme right-wing group” and a “hate group”: " …extreme right-wing groups like the Concerned Women for America, Faith and Freedom Coalition, and the Family Research Council are also lauding Ryan’s hyperconservatism on social issues. "And in a sign that Paul Ryan has no qualms about flexing his anti-gay muscles during the campaign to those extreme groups, he has agreed to address the Family Research Council, which the Southern Poverty Law Center deems a...

    The shooter entered the building at 801 G Street NW at around 10:45 a.m. Wednesday. He approached the front desk and said he was an intern before pulling a Sig Sauer 9 mm handgun from a backpack. The guard confronted him, and they had an altercation before the shooter fired, striking the guard in the arm. Despite his injury, he gained control of the weapon and held it on the suspect. Authorities found two loaded magazines with 15 rounds each in the suspect's backpack, as well as Chik-Fil-A promotional materials, NBC4's Jackie Bensen reported.

    President Barack Obama signed a bill Friday evening that would exempt some senior-level presidential appointees from Senate confirmation. Sponsored by Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer and cosponsored by Republicans and Democrats, the bill, now law, weakens the power of the legislature and strengthens the executive branch, critics have warned. The bill skated through the Senate three months after being introduced in 2011 and was passed by the Republican-controlled House 216-116 in July. The law now allows Obama and future presidents to name appointees to senior positions in every branch of the administration, from the Department of the Treasury to the Department...

"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...

    Despite a majority of Americans who are pro-life and 30 states that have marriage protection in their state constitutions, we won't take it for granted that Republican Leadership will always respect that it's the social issues that have been at the heart of the party. In conventions past, there has been controversy surrounding the pro-life plank in the party platform. This year, it appears that controversy has shifted to traditional marriage. Strong voices within the Republican Party would like nothing more than to change the official stance in regards to marriage between one man and one woman: Dick Cheney, former...

    Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit points to a story at Tax Prof Blog about Northeastern University's decision to bar the fast-food chain Chick-fil-A from that fine institution's campus. Why the exclusion? On the basis of some of its charitable giving, Chick-fil-A is considered to be anti-gay by the gay rights group Equality Matters. Among the groups that raise ire are outfits such as the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), Focus on the Family, The Family Resource Council, and Exodus International. Certainly some of these groups talk often about pushing back on what they consider "the homosexual agenda" that has continued to...
  • Planned Parenthood: Seeing a Baby Before Abortion is Abhorrent

    The taxpayer funded abortion factory Planned Parenthood making millions in profits by preying on women, specifically minorities and teenagers, seems to think a woman seeing her baby before making the ultimate decision to end her pregnancy is an "abhorrent" standard. The classification comes after a federal appeals court upheld a law that requires doctors to give women considering an abortion an ultrasound and full information before performing the procedure. Writing for the court, Chief Judge Edith Jones was frank about the other side’s failure “to demonstrate constitutional flaws with the law,” which requires women to have a sonogram 24 hours...

    A new lawsuit filed against the Department of Justice charges that it is withholding e-mails about the Obama administration’s decision not to defend the Defense of Marriage Act. “We have serious concerns that the Justice Department wants to hide evidence that it was doing the bidding of campaign donors and homosexual activists from whom Obama will need assistance for his reelection,” said Family Research Council president Tony Perkins. Under the Freedom of Information Act, the Family Research Council had requested the relevant documents from the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division to determine the basis for the decision and to...

    According to a New York Times editorial this week, “As Housing Goes, So Goes the Economy”. It is a call to the United States government to intervene in the housing market which, nearly two years after the housing bubble burst, is still in trouble and will not, says the Times, fix itself. That may be so in the short term, but a report published today by the Family Research Council suggests that the long-term fix for the economy must come from another quarter. Tweaking foreclosure rules may make it possible for more people to keep their homes, but it...
