I am constantly amazed that Christians are constantly accused of being “haters” by the very people who are easily demonstrated to be true, genuine haters. It’s the way of the world whenever the left is involved, as exemplified by all the most vile nations that are constantly sitting on the United Nations’ “Human Rights” council.
I think of the Tea Party and all the accusations of hate that was poured on us. It was amazing. I saw peaceful, mostly older people protesting in complete law-abiding order. But the left demonized us. And then we saw the Occupy Wall Street movement (OWS) that was replete with numerous acts of rape, of violence, of rioting, of outright terrorism, complete with 7,387 documented arrests.
But those who literally DOCUMENT themselves to be violent and willing to resort to violence aren’t “hateful.” Only Christians who read and follow their Bibles so qualify.
So we have ourselves a liberal who literally believes that those who believe what the Holy Bible and 2,000 years of Western Civilization clearly teach are “hateful.” And those who murder people for practicing their right to believe as they will and speak as they will – as 230 years of our constitutional republic clearly teach – are “tolerant.”
Here’s another case in point:
FRC President: ‘Reckless Rhetoric’ Led to Shooting
By Paul Strand
CBN News Washington Sr. Correspondent
Friday, August 17, 2012
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, is calling for an end to “reckless rhetoric” he believes is behind Wednesday’s shooting at the conservative group’s office in Washington, D.C.
Leo Johnson is recovering after he was shot in the arm in what federal authorities have labeled an act of domestic terrorism.
The Wednesday morning incident began when suspected shooter Floyd Corkins, 28, entered FRC headquarters off G Street, and reportedly made statements opposing the company’s policies.
He then shot Johnson, an FRC building operations manager who also serves as a security guard. Johnson was unarmed and not in uniform.
“Floyd Corkins was responsible for firing the shot that wounded our friend,” Perkins said Thursday.
“But Corkins was given a license to shoot an unarmed man by groups like the SPLC that have been reckless in labeling organizations ‘hate groups’ because they disagree with them on public policy,” he added.
In 2010, the Southern Poverty Law Center put the FRC on the same “hate group” list as the Klu Klux Klan and neo-Nazis because of its stance in favor of traditional marriage.
Jerry Boykin, a retired Army general and FRC’s new executive vice president, was at the office when the shooting occurred.
“I tell you what, you couldn’t blow me out of here with a stick of dynamite now,” he told CBN News. “I am so determined that we are going to continue standing for biblical values, family values, freedom, faith.”
“I hope that this stimulates other Americans that have the same values to get involved in what’s going on in this country,” Boykins continued. “We’re not going away. We’re not going to back down.”
Since the incident, Perkins visited Johnson in the hospital. Despite his injury, the unarmed Johnson and others tackled the suspect and wrestle him to the floor.
“When I told him his actions were heroic in protecting his colleagues, he told me that he just reacted in the way he thought anyone at FRC would have responded,” Perkins said.
He added that his organization is grateful for the continued prayers and support from around the world.
A Dangerous Atmosphere
Corkins, who was taken into FBI custody, is a volunteer worker at a Washington community center for the homosexual and transgender population of D.C.
“Well, I’m very shocked. It’s very surprising,” a neighbor said of Corkin’s attack.
FRC is known as a conservative Christian lobbying organizations, especially well-known for its support of traditional marriage and stance against abortion.
The suspect was also reportedly carrying a Chick-fil-A bag. Chick-Fil-A’s president, Dan Cathy, has been under fire for opposing gay marriage and funding groups like FRC.
Some conservatives say if Wednesday’s attack was politically motivated, liberal and pro-gay organizations that keep labeling FRC a “hate group” for opposing gay marriage are partially to blame for the dangerous atmosphere.
We’d like to hear your thoughts on how liberal groups are labeling those who stand for biblical beliefs as ‘hate groups.’ join the discussion at our CBN News Facebook page.
“This has got to be a wake-up call to everybody in the conservative movement,” Media Research Center’s Dan Gainor said. “If it turns out early reports are accurate and this individual did this based on politics, it’s not that it’s new. It’s the culmination of years of leftie demonization of conservative groups.”
National Organization for Marriage President Brian Brown agreed.
“Such harmful and dangerous labels deserve no place in our civil society,” he said, calling on pro-gay organizations “to withdraw such incendiary rhetoric from a debate that involves millions of good Americans.”
Many liberals and gay rights activists often refer to those who disagree with them as “haters” or “hate groups.”
Stirring the Pot
Just this past Friday, gay Campus Pride leader Shane L. Windmeyer blasted Chick-fil-A for its support of traditional marriage in an Huffington Post editorial.
“Through its family-controlled nonprofit arm, Chick-fil-A profits have funded such groups as Eagle Forum, Exodus International, Family Research Council, and Focus on the Family,” he wrote.
“Chick-fil-A profits fund documented hate groups that aggressively work against LGBT people, advocating their criminalization, psychological abuse, or death,” he added.
The Southern Poverty Law Center said it labels FRC a hate group because it disseminates false information to defame gays.
But FRC senior fellow Peter Sprigg told CBN news that’s not true.
“I don’t expect everyone to agree with some of the things that we assert about the homosexual lifestyle,” Sprigg said. “But we do present evidence in support of those assertions, and they are certainly not falsehoods or fabrications.”
It’s like I said: I call the left fascist BECAUSE THEY KEEP DOCUMENTING THAT THEY ARE FASCIST.
Jesus put it in crystal clear terms:
Everybody who hates Christians hates Jesus, and you hate us because of your hatred for Him.
MSNBC is so biased and so rabidly dishonest that they won’t even MENTION that a liberal activist tried to commit mass murder at a conservative organization. Which is interesting: because if it had been a conservative trying to do the same damn thing at a liberal organization you would have had endless coverage, candlelight vigils, endless discussions about what to do about these conservative haters, etc. Even when there was ZERO evidence that the conservative who was being demonized was actually to blame. But here’s the most interesting thing:
Tony Perkins, the president of Family Research Council, had this to say on the Huckabee show (August 18, 2012) - and I typed it verbatim:
Tony Perkins: “And he [Leo] had the gun on the man. I talked to Leo – in fact I talked Leo again this morning to make sure he is doing okay, and he’s doing fine, recovering well – He could have and would have been justified in shooting the man because he had no idea if he had another weapon, or what he planned to do. But Leo told me this: he said that in that moment, “the Lord spoke to me and said, ‘Don’t shoot him.’” And he didn’t. He called for help and other members of the team came and held him until the police arrived.”
This liberal – like ALL liberals – utterly despises the God of the Bible.
But it was that very God who told Leo Johnson to spare that liberal’s life.
Just so you understand the sheer hypocrisy and cowardice of this particular liberal, there’s this:
Fox News is reporting that the incident occurred inside the FRC headquarters at approximately 10:45 a.m. yesterday. Sources said the shooter made statements regarding FRC policies just before opening fire and shooting Leo Johnson, a security guard, in the arm. Johnson and another guard managed to wrestle the man to the ground and take away his gun. While doing so, the shooter said, “Don’t shoot me, it was not about you, it was what this place stands for.”
Can you imagine saying that to the man you just tried to kill merely because of where that man worked?
Hopefully God spared – and make no mistake that it was GOD who spared – Floyd Corkins in order that at least one liberal would realize that absolutely EVERYTHING he believes and thinks he knows has been completely wrong.
