"As the Court knows, Mr. Corkins’ stated intention was to kill as many FRC staff as possible to send a political message. But for Leo’s heroic conduct, and the protective hand of the Lord, this crime might have ended as one of the worst acts of domestic terrorism the District of Columbia has ever seen. He was clearly inspired by the [SPLC]’s labeling of FRC as a 'hate group' based on our belief that marriage can only take place between one man and one woman." - From Tony Perkins' speech to the court yesterday at Corkins' sentencing. As we've noted here many times, merely opposing same-sex marriage does not
earn a listing by the SPLC, otherwise hundreds
of groups would be so listed. Not even NOM is on their list.
