On to today's topic.
A couple days ago a gay man went to the headquarters of the Family Research Council, pulled out a gun, and started shooting. Fortunately, the only one injured was a security guard, and I hear his wound was in the arm.
41 gay advocacy groups have condemned the shooting. "We reject and condemn such violence."
The FRC has been labeled by the SPLC as a hate group for demonizing gay people and using material known to be false (such as distorting research over the objections of the researcher) to do so.
Tony Perkins, head of FRC, is claiming that the shooter attacked his organization because of the SPLC label. Gay groups aren't buying it. Here's a long list of things that Tony Perkins has said and any of those are much more inflammatory than anything the SPLC could say. An example:
The truth is that we cannot redefine marriage without opening the door to all manner of moral and social evil.
They are intolerant. They are hateful. They are vile. They are spiteful...pawns of the enemy.
