Last summer, a lone and crazy shooter attempted a massacre at the Family Research Council’s DC office. No one on the marriage equality side condoned this idiot’s decision to take matters in his own hands, which in fact tarnishes our movement as a whole. Today, Floyd Corkins II admitted that he had intended to create a blood bath at the religious organization’s offices:
Floyd Corkins II, 28, acknowledged in a plea agreement that he intended to kill as many people as possible during the August shooting at the Family Research Council. He also planned to target other organizations that oppose gay marriage if he wasn’t stopped.
NOM’s president Brian Brown responded to the admission in one of his frequent anti-gay email blasts earlier today:
Standing up for traditional marriage does not make anyone ‘anti-gay’ and it is deplorable that some reporters covering this issue allow mere opposition to redefining marriage to be labeled as such. It is even more reckless for news reports to allow the charge of ‘hate group’ to be applied to any organization because their beliefs affirm a traditional Judeo-Christian view of marriage and sexual morality. We hope that media organizations will seriously reflect on these issues knowing that irresponsible ‘hate group’ charges nearly led to a massacre at the Family Research Council.
This is from the organization that pitted African Americans against gays and have recently come out against gay adoption. Whatever, Brian.
