"PRO-GAY" FRC SHOOTER GETS "SPECIAL RIGHTS"

By Rev.Ted Pike
21 Aug 12

On August 15th a pro-homosexual activist, Floyd Lee Corkins, shot a guard at the offices of the Family Research Council in Washington DC. He was yelling “I don’t like your policies!” This was a textbook example of a bias-motivated hate crime.

Yet a hate crime charge was not added to the “assault with intent to kill” indictment against FRC shooter Floyd Lee Corkins last week. This is not because the D.C. justice system agrees with FRC director Tony Perkins that hate crimes charges are superfluous. Perkins believes all assaults should be treated as assaults – nothing more. I agree.

Much more likely, hate crime charges are absent because Corkins is a pro-homosexual activist, possibly gay. Homosexuals possess special rights not afforded most Americans because they are a federally protected minority under all state and federal hate crimes laws.

The originator of such twisted statues is the Anti-Defamation League. ADL boasts: “Our legal experts pioneered hate laws and work to implement them” (from the ADL annual report “From Problems to Solutions,” pg. 3,). ADL facilitated hate laws in all western countries to prosecute bias-motivated "crimes" by whites and Christians against specially favored groups. These include blacks, Jews, Latinos, Muslims, etc. Hate laws emphatically do not give special protection to whites and Christians against bias-motivated assaults by members of the above protected groups.

Yes, ADL loudly advocated last week that Corkins be charged with a hate crime. But that’s a smoke screen. ADL, through 25 years of instructing law enforcement and the liberal justice establishment worldwide, has firmly laid down the unwritten rule that members of specially protected groups are never to be charged with a hate crime. Instead, if prosecuted at all, they will be indicted with much lighter conventional charges of assault, trespass, etc.

Thus, if a white Christian FRC intern invaded the gay and lesbian center where Corkins volunteered, shouting, “I hate your values!” and shot a staff member, there is absolutely no question he would immediately be charged with a hate crime, mandating triple penalties. This would mean not just the 40 years Corkins may face, but 120. In such a case, the state would not be deterred in making a hate crimes indictment because of questions regarding the intern’s mental stability. Such could be resolved later in court. But Corkins shoots a guard at FRC yelling, “I don’t like your policies!” and prosecutors waffle about Corkins’ rationality, possibly contributing to no hate charges.

Corkins’ exemption from a hate indictment was clearly provided for in testimony by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in Senate Judiciary hearings in 2009. He indicated that the federal hate law, just like state hate laws, was designed to prosecute white, male, Christian “haters” – not homosexuals, Jews, and other minorities who might express their hate through violence.

The double standard of the Washington, D.C. justice system in not immediately enforcing the D.C. hate law thus underscores the outrageous partiality of hate crime laws. I’ll say it again: There is no equality of hate law protection in approximately 60 countries where ADL hate laws rule. All hate statutes deceptively give the impression of hate crime protection for all, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, etc.  In truth, they blatantly discriminate against the majority, giving special rights to a privileged few who are viewed as historic victims of perhaps centuries of abuse and discrimination by the white, Christian, male power structure.

Meanwhile, 16 Amish men and women are indicted under the federal hate crime law, awaiting trial. The government alleges they are guilty of the hate crime of forcibly shaving hair off the faces and heads of their Amish theological rivals. Each could receive up to life in prison under Ohio’s ADL hate law (See Amish Arrests Reveal Hate Law Bias Against Christians ). As white, predominantly male Christians, they are exactly the target that the anti-Christian Jewish ADL envisioned hate laws to harass and destroy.

Hate Laws are Unconstitutional

When a law discriminates against some and favors others, it is unconstitutional. It violates the most fundamental premise America was founded on: equal justice for all. For this reason, all hate laws should be abolished.

Attorneys for the indicted Amish haircutters will be strongly making the case in court that the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Statute should be ruled unconstitutional and the government’s hate crimes charges against the Amish defendants thrown out.

I hope the clear evidence of favoritism by D.C.’s hate law toward Corkins will add fuel to a growing bonfire of righteous indignation against hate laws everywhere—in the U.S., Canada, Britain, Australia, etc. It is time to destroy ADL’s hate laws, the most twisted, discriminatory, and unjustly punishing statutes ever conceived in the history of evil men - before they destroy freedom and the Christian civilization that gave liberty to the world.
