    The Family Research Council shooter, who pleaded guilty today to a terrorism charge, picked his target off a "hate map" on the website of the ultra-liberal Southern Poverty Law Center which is upset with the conservative group's opposition to gay rights. Floyd Lee Corkins II pleaded guilty to three charges including a charge of committing an act of terrorism related to the August 15, 2012 injuring of FRC's guard. He told the FBI that he wanted to kill anti-gay targets and went to the law center's website for ideas. At a court hearing where his comments to the FBI were...
  • FRC and the Shots Not Heard around the World (Family Research Council shooting)

    FRC ^ | 2/7/2013
    It seems hard to believe, Jim Treacher wrote yesterday, "but once upon a time, there was a shooting the national news didn't want to talk about." That's because the shooting was at FRC. And although the gunman was a politically-motivated activist who stormed a building less than a mile from the White House, there's a reason most Americans have never heard of him. After years of insisting that conservatives were the hateful ones, the attack at FRC was an inconvenient storyline for a media bent on hiding where the real intolerance lies. The day after Floyd Corkins walked into our...

    Homosexual activist unleashes another rant against Christians Homosexual activist Dan Savage, who earlier this year told school students to ignore the “bull—-” in the Bible, now has unleashed a tirade at Family Research Council President Tony Perkins. FRC was targeted just weeks ago when suspected gunman Floyd Lee Corkins entered the organization’s headquarters and shot and injured a man serving as a guard. The gunman reportedly had been a volunteer in a “gay” community center and made reference to the FRC’s Bible-based position on homosexuality. At the time, Perkins said the attack came in an atmosphere created by groups such...

    It was reported recently in this paper — and opined on — that there are students upset over Chick-fil-A being served on campus. First, Chick-fil-A does not have any history of discrimination; rather, it treats its customers and employees with the utmost respect. And, contrary to what one columnist wrote, Chick-fil-A as a company has no policy regarding marriage; it was its CEO who expressed his beliefs. And for that, not only Mr. Cathy but the entire company has been demonized. (Might I point out — the belief held by Mr. Cathy on marriage is the exact same position held...

    The “ filthy, degenerate, gutter Christians” at the Family Research Council inspired last week’s shooting by “going too far” with their pro-family activism, according to a nationally syndicated liberal talk show host. “You filthy, filthy right-wing b——-ds, you’re going too far!” Mike Malloy told his audience last week. “One of these days somebody’s going to go berserk and walk into one of your filthy holes of religious insanity with a gun.” Switching to a mocking tone, Malloy said, “Oh. I think that happened today.” Malloy went on to say the council would “happily sacrifice” a 10-year-old child who was raped...

    The FRC shooting is the latest chapter in the blood-drenched history of the left — from the French Revolution to Occupy Wall Street. This is the way the left does business — with guillotines, gulags and gas chambers, with bombs, bullets, purges, planned famines and demonizing opponents as a prelude to their slaughter. In 2009, James Pouillon was shot to death while holding a pro-life sign by a supporter of choice. The same year, black Tea Party activist Kenneth Glandney was beaten so badly by SEIU thugs that he had to be hospitalized. In 2010, heavily armed eco-terrorist James J....

The media has gone AWOL on the shooting by an apparent deranged leftist at the Family Research Council in Washington DC this week.

    (CNSNews.com) – The man who shot a security guard at the Family Research Council (FRC) on Wednesday was “given a license” to do so because of groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) that have labeled the FRC a “hate group,” said FRC President Tony Perkins. The conservative Christian group is posted on a “Hate Map” on the SPLC’s Web site. There are 13 groups listed for the District of Columbia on the “Hate Map,” and the Family Research Council is among them, according to the SPLC, because of its support for traditional marriage and Christian morality.

    I’m nearing the end of a vacation, so I’ve stayed out of the Corner for the most part. But tonight after we came back from dinner, my wife said “look at this.” On her iPad was the Washington Post’s homepage. One of the headlines reads: Police: Suspect disagreed with Family Research Council “Disagreed”? The suspect shot someone. “Disagreed”!? Why so bombastic? Why not say that the would-be killer “had a different perspective’?

    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...

    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...

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.

    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.
