Here’s what a recent article said about the man who tried to commit acts of violence at the Family Research Council headquarters in Washington, D.C.: “The defense attorney for Floyd Lee Corkins, who shot up the offices of the Family Research Council, on August 15, 2012, says he wanted to kill ‘conservative right-wing Christians.’ Corkins entered the lobby armed with a loaded semi-automatic pistol, 100 rounds of ammunition, and 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches. He started firing at FRC’s building manager Leo Johnson who heroically tackled the shooter after a gunshot shattered his arm.”
Corkins is scheduled to be sentenced next week for his crimes. But this is a reminder that the work of defending biblical values is a serious undertaking in need of wisdom, prayer, and always being prepared. Many would like to harm our efforts and even harm our organizations. The work of bringing evil deeds into the light to expose them is not one that will go unchallenged. We encourage all those who defend life, marriage, and religious freedom to do so under the cover of prayer. And for those who support such organizations we covet your prayers daily.
