A Literal War On Religion?

Earlier today Breitbart News reported that a gunman had entered the Family Research Council’s DC headquarters and shot a security guard before he was disarmed and arrested. We waited for additional facts regarding the shooting to come to light before speculating on motive. Now various reports state that the suspect, 28 year-old Floyd Corkins II, shouted disagreements with FRC’s Christian stance on same sex marriage before opening fire. He reportedly carried with him a Chick-Fil-A bag and other restaurant paraphernalia, and posed as an intern to gain access to the FRC.

The AP reported that Corkins was a volunteer at a LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered) center:

David Mariner is executive director of The DC Center for the LGBT Community. He says Corkins had been volunteering at the center for about the past 6 months. Mariner describes Corkins as “kind, gentle and unassuming.”
