Have you wondered AT ALL as to just 'why' the Family Research Council shooter Floyd Lee Corkins II was carrying 15 'Chick-fil-A's' in his backpack?
And I had to plumb the depths of my mind to see if I could determine all the possibilities of why he would do so.
The reasons I came up with were 'one crazier than the other'...and all very unsavory.
Our reflections on this Christian-hating Corkins is complicated, of course, by the fact that he is a 'complex' individual (I'm trying to be polite here).
A Progressive liberal 'zealot' of the first order, Floyd Lee Corkings is, among other things, the latest enthusiastic contributor to a burgeoning wave of 'left wing violence' against conservatives...and against Christians, in particular.
"The Washington Post quoted Allan P. Chan, a former George Mason student, as saying he lifted weights and socialized with Corkins. Chan said Corkins was secretive and somewhat odd, and displayed an intense interest in the 19th-century German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, according to the Post."LINK: http://www.cnn.com/2012/08/16/justice/dc-shooting-suspect/index.html
What of Nietzsche, you might ask?
"Militant atheism may also be a factor in the shooter’s motives. Nietzsche is the well-known atheist philosopher who decried the “slave morality” of Christianity and proclaimed “God is dead”. The shooter in the Garielle Giffords case (Jared Lee Loughner) was a militant atheist. Militant atheists like Richard Dawkins and the American Atheists group have even called for the eradication of Christianity. But the vast majority of atheists are not violent."LINK: http://winteryknight.wordpress.com/2012/08/16/fbi-floyd-lee-corkins-ii-is-left-winger-and-admired-atheist-philosopher-nietzche/
Thus far, we can 'understand' Corkins apparent hatred for the conservative establishment and the church in terms of his 'militant atheism', but what of those pesky Chick-fil-A sandwiches he had on his person, all fifteen of them?
Well, the answer suggested by a commenter 'Tacitus Talk" is sickening and truly frightening:
"An eye-witness was interviewed on another news outlet. He was screaming that he was going to kill as many as he could and leave a Chick-Fil-A bag at the body."LINK: http://www.cnn.com/2012/08/16/justice/dc-shooting-suspect/index.html
What kind of 'mind' comes up with that kind of plan?
Is it 'evil, demented or both'?
I'd say, 'Heaven knows'...but in this case, I suspect 'hell' knows, also.
We wonder -- is there much 'active support' for LGBT activist Corkins by his 'fellows'?
If there is, how is the public going to deal with it? Similarly, how will the law enforcement community deal with it?
I wish I had some answers for you. Lacking them, at least we are 'forewarned'.
We can be alert and aware of our surroundings, while always remembering that the last thing our Lord wants is for us to reply-in-kind to those who seek to harm us.
God Bless You
