    Let me get this straight... If a conservative shoots a person at a liberal organization, simply because of their stance on gay marriage they're additionally charged with a "hate crime". BUT when a liberal shoots a person at a conservative organization simply because of their stance on gay marriage it's just the ordinary charges with nothing extra. And gays are demanding equal rights? I would submit that straight conservatives are the ones who should be demanding equal rights.

    tell me something... exactly how the hell do you know this guy is a liberal. don't you think that there are any conservative gays? if this guy is a liberal i'd be awfully surprised. it's very, very seldom in their makeup to perform acts of 'terrorism' if that's what it was.

    not only that, but nobody has officially charged him with anything yet. has he been in front of a judge?

    i'm getting awfully sick of reading this 'liberal'/'conservative' crap.

    1 out of every 10 men are gay... and that includes conservatives.

    The guy is a liberal... Pure and simple! How can you even argue this point? He was a volunteer at a liberal organization. He attacked a conservative organization. Are you that blinded by your own self righteousness that you can't even concede the fact that their are crazies on BOTH sides? I'll be the first to admit that there are crazies on the right, as there are crazies in every walk of life. What's so difficult about just admitting that a gay liberal is capable of evil too?

    nobody is denying that there are goofy people on both sides of the rainbow. all i'm saying is that there's nothing been said or done to indicate his being a liberal. not only that, but not all 'gay activists' are gay.

    xeno... the facts state that 10 of every male and o out of 8 females in over 1500 species are strictly same sex oriented... that includes homo sapiens-sapiens. and nobody said anything at all about 'out'. just relax and get used to the idea that they've got us surrounded. it doesn't matter, you know.

    Whether he was Lib or Con is completely irrelevant. The man attempted homicide. Get on with the trial and Lock him up and throw away the key. Take care of business.

    He's not a terrorist. He's just a nut who fell off a tree and hit someone. This man is just like those crazy people who shoot people at abortion clinics. No more, no less. Put him away and give bubba a new toy to play with.

    I bet they are on TV you can probably find them on any news program or channel. I've notices most of these people have no friend's and can't keep a job.

    You might be right but I think there are more direct influences closer to home, Also, we need to watch phrases like (those people), we don't want the discriminator police after us.

    The reason I think he may have been on his own is that if you're thinking of who I think you're thinking of, they would have been smart enough to know that they were turning the other side into the victim. That is unless we're assuming that maybe they caught so much flack from the Chickfila-thing backfiring on them, that they've just decided to throw gay-rights under the bus in favor of gun-control. That would be an interesting theory. I'd be upset about that if I were gay. They're already riding this thing out on a whispers and promises as it is. At least the dreamers got their day this week. Didn't the president make a lot of promises to them when he was campaigning for this term? I think it was the great philosopher Stony F. Ritzklenner that said, "Fool me once, shame on me; fool me twice, shame on you; but fool me never and all you can do is remove my statements, and with them all doubt."

    i think i know were you are going with that and it would explain why there have been such a flurry in the uptake of these crimes, especially when they go out of their way to label them as domestic terror crimes.

    When one or two people at a Tea Party rally held up signs that were racially offensive, the media worked overtime to convince America that the entire Tea Party organization must be racist. Now, if the media were truly unbiased and objective in their mudslinging, we should now be hearing from them that all LGBT activists are terrorists.

    Don't hold your breath.

    The above statement would be perfectly valid if objectivity involved assessing each piece of information in the absence of all other knowledge. Luckily, it does not.

    ded - But that's exactly how the media operates - they report facts completely out of context and make up a new context to make them look however they want, and attribute the information to "anonymous sources". My point is that the way they treat this incident will prove their bias, because they will not descend to the level of yellow journalism they routinely aim at the Right.

    Stratton is right. If this story hadn't come at a time when certain people wanted to take away our guns, it might have not received the attention that it's getting in the media. I think that this guy is just a lone-wolf fruitcake that in his obviously sick-and-twisted mind thought he was helping the cause. If he learned anything from this, it's that it seems to work out better for the cause when you give the other side the gun and have them shoot at you.

    first of all, we don't really know if it was an act of terrorism, or of simple stupidity. it seems to be awfully poorly thought out to be terrorism...

    secondly: you'd think that they'd at least have told him to button his shirt and pull up his pants.

    Sounds like a hate-crime to me. The guy committed a crime and says its because he hated their politics. Hate + crime = hate-crime. Kind of a stupid thing to have, because there aren't many crimes, especially violent ones, that don't involve hate. If we're going to have hate-crimes for some, we should have hate-crimes for all, shouldn't we?

    I kinda think that "domestic-terrorism" is just a buzz-word that certain people are promoting the use of in order to make things seem as they'd have them seem for their own benefit. Two armed guys in masks running up in an elderly couple's house and robbing them wouldn't be labeled "domestic-terrorism" or a "hate-crime" by those same people, yet the perps and the victims could be of two different ethnic or racial-backgrounds, and the couple would still be "terrorized", wouldn't they? So what's with the nitpicking? Is this guy incapable of hate because his views are in line with certain people's? That doesn't seem right.

    I wonder when ABC is going to announce his "thought to be" political affiliations like they did with the Batman shooter? Oh, tht's right, it wouldn't fit their political agenda to do so, my bad....

    Don't you find it odd that the "mainstream media" couldn't wait to try and link Jared Loughner to the Republicans? Don't you find it odd that ABC couldn't wait to "report" that James Holmes was a member of the Tea Party (even though it was a DIFFERENT James Holmes). Don't you find it odd that the "mainstream media" couldn't wait to report on the Sikh Temple shooter having ties to white supremacist groups? Now, don't you find it odd that that same "mainstream media" tried to avoid as best they could linking Major Nidal Hasan to Muslim terrorists? The point is the media has a bias and an agenda and if you can't see it, you're not paying attention.

    From The Family Research Council:..

    The Top Ten Myths About Homosexuality…

    Myth No. 5:..

    Homosexuals do not experience a higher level of psychological disorders than heterosexuals…

    Fact :..

    Homosexuals experience considerably higher levels of mental illness and substance abuse than heterosexuals. A detailed review of the research has shown that “no other group of comparable size in society experiences such intense and widespread pathology.”…

    One of the first triumphs of the modern homosexual movement was the removal of homosexuality from the American Psychiatric Association’s official list of mental disorders in 1973. That decision was far more political than scientific in nature, and an actual survey of psychiatrists several years later showed that a large majority still believed homosexuality to be pathological.Nevertheless, regardless of whether one considers homosexuality itself to be a mental disorder, there can be no question that it is associated with higher levels of a whole range of mental disorders…

    Ron Stall, one of the nation’s leading AIDS researchers, has been warning for years “that additive psychosocial health problems—otherwise known collectively as a ‘syndemic’—exist among urban MSM”[men who have sex with men]. For example, in 2003, his research team reported in the American Journal of Public Health that homosexual conduct in this population is associated with higher rates of multiple drug use, depression, domestic violence and a history of having been sexually abused as a child... http://downloads.frc.org/EF/EF10F01.pdf

    Ranger, devil's advocate here but I'm willing to bet a lot of those additional mental problems came/come from being different in a society that claims to celebrate diversity...when it suits them.

    "From The Family Research Council:.."
    Really Ranger!!!???
    Can't you find a reputable reference rather that a highly biased one.
    This is reminiscent of the tobacco industry doing research on the effects of smoking related to cancer.

    Jack-Black,...

    From The Family Research Council:..

    (Additional information from…)...

    Fact :..

    Homosexuals experience considerably higher levels of mental illness and substance abuse than heterosexuals. A detailed review of the research has shown that “no other group of comparable size in society experiences such intense and widespread pathology.”...

    Homosexual activists generally attempt to explain these problems as results of “homophobic discrimination.” However, there is a serious problem with that theory—there is no empirical evidence that such psychological problems are greater in areas where disapproval of homosexuality is more intense. On the contrary, even a study in the Netherlands—perhaps the most “gay-friendly” country in the world—showed “a higher prevalence of substance use disorders in homosexual women and a higher prevalence of mood and anxiety disorders in homosexual men...” http://downloads.frc.org/EF/EF10F01.pdf

    "The DC Center for the LGBT Community issued a joint statement yesterday, signed by over 40 gay rights groups nationwide, that "utterly" rejects and condemns the actions of Corkins."
    ALL criminal acts of violence are BOTH acts of "hate," and of "terrorism," and deserve condemnation.

    Well, there's no monopoly on crazy. Why isn't this a hate crime? He's stayed activism as his motivation. Sounds like hate for a particular group with whose opinions he disagreed.

    Wonder how he thought shooting up the FRC was going to change people's minds. Except to make them against LGBT.

    probably it'll work as well as a group of catholics shooting up a planned parenthood office which may or may not arrange abortions and killing an doctor who offers the service to women who need it.

    it only makes everyone look stupid.
