Floyd Lee Corkins II walked into the Family Research Council headquarters in Washington D.C. armed with a gun. Witnesses said the gunman carried a Chick-fil-A bag and tried posing as an intern in the Conservative non-profit. Activists for same-sex marriage have staged boycotts and "kiss ins" against the fast food restaurant Chick-fil-A because its COO supports traditional marriage. The FRC also supports traditional marriage and opposes the homosexual agenda.

The FRC security guard tried stopping Corkins from entering. Corkins then shot the guard in the arm, but the guard still managed to disarm and subdue him. Corkins then shouted, "Don't shoot me, it was not about you, it was what this place stands for."

Corkins had volunteered at the Washington Community Center for Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals and Transgendered People. The group and 26 homosexual organizations have condemned Corkins' behavior in a joint statement carried on the website of Gay-Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.

Many Democrats, homosexual activist organizations and even Liberal mayors expressed their outrage over the private views of the Chick-fil-A executives. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the former Chief of Staff for President Obama, said "Chick-fil-A" is not welcome in his city. Watch the video to see more of the rhetoric attacks against the family-owned restaurant chain.

Ironically, the Liberal activist group Southern Poverty Law Center designated FRC as a hate group.
NATION.FOXNEWS.COM reports: A security guard at the Family Research Council's headquarters in Washington, D.C. is being hailed as a hero after he stopped a gunman posing as an intern, taking a bullet in the arm before wrestling the suspect to the ground.

    This guy wouldn't have been there if it weren't for the propaganda and rhetoric that is being shoved at us non stop on a daily basis. This is what mind control and hate looks like.

    Using the "logic" that is bandied about by these self same groups, yes. Why isn't Mark Potok demanding armed "law-en-force-ment" (SWAT-militarized "cops") to descend upon these groups and disband them? They are obviously armed and dangerous.

    I don't agree that it caused this incident. I would agree, however, that it may have been just one more straw on the proverbial camel's back in this man's decision-making process. However, the only one responsible for something like this is the actual shooter himself, and to attempt to blame anyone else is simply a lame argument and tends only to stir the fires of hatred and prejudice a little more.

    Now that is really a reach. No, a protest did NOT 'cause' this man to shoot someone. If that's the case, why didn't he shoot someone at Chick-fil-A?

    Honestly, Fef, the way you pose some of your questions - that in and of itself can be 'hate mongering'. I am very disappointed in you sometimes. It's almost like you're out there looking for something to twist into a left vs. right battle. See if you can stir things up some more. You are adding fuel to the fire. Do you feel better when you see the negativity and divisiveness your questions generate? Please, I would like to know.

    Why is it when its one of your own its always the same tap dance. Its hate when its agains't the left and its righteous when its agains't the right. The dude was a sick gay guy and this is the point we have been arguing about for yrs. Their is something wrong with ya when ya believe in that kind of life style.

    I want to say that no one but this nutter is to blame for what he did. But is it possible that inflamitory rhetoric broadcast by the media had some...effect? The guy brings a Chick-fil-A bag to a shooting. Is that not supposed to be some kind of message?

    I still don't think leftist rhetoric CAUSED the incident, but there is some influence undeniably.

    They think such a willfully ignorant position helps to move us closer to their goal of civilian disarmament.

    Politicizing these mass shootings is the contemporary and domestic parallel of the Reichstag burning.

    So many distractions - all the time distractions. People don't prioritize well anymore. So many are being used to push an agenda who are clueless in the part they play. At least I know the pitfalls of the side I am standing on. But I'm going with - it is easier to make changes from within than from without.

    People go nuts for all kinds of reasons, and they aren't usually political. I think both sides of the debate should recognize that some people are just nuts and are going to do what they do regardless of what pundits or broadcasters they might have been listening to at the time.

    It's obvious that the Chick-fil-A controversy was on this nuts mind and was a trigger of sorts but it was his uncontrolled outward anger and rage combined with being a mentally deranged nutcase that caused him to physically lash out and attack people.

    His political veiws may be liberal but this nuts faulty reasoning is basically no different from the type of poor thinking that another nutcase might do when trying to justify an attack on an abortion clinic, govt building, etc, etc.

    Good job Fef in creating biased polls once more. There are no indications that this man was even affiliated with any LGBT groups let alone being a homosexual himself.

    Also please don't use FOX News as a primary source. It's embarrassing.

    The guy stated that he didn't like the FRC's politics. That's what he told the security guard when he shot him.

    As far as your rant abou FOX. No, I didn't see it. And no, I don't care. Most libs hate FOX because they hate the truth.
