Leader of Organization Possibly Targeted by FRC Shooter Says AG Holder Does "Not Believe They Need to Protect" Christians

 

LifeSiteNews reports on allegations that the Department of Justice has been unresponsive to organizations espousing pro-marriage views:

The leader of an organization that may have been targeted by the man who opened fire at the Family Research Council says the Justice Department has done nothing to investigate credible threats of violence against it, because the Obama administration applies “different tiers of protection” to Christians than it does to Muslims, abortionists, and homosexual activists.

LGBT volunteer Floyd Lee Corkins II said “I don’t like your politics” before wounding a security guard at the Family Research Council’s Washington, D.C. headquarters last Wednesday. Federal authorities say the shooter toted a Chick-fil-A bag – but Traditional Values Coalition President Andrea Lafferty said the FBI revealed he was carrying something else: TVC’s address. If he had escaped, he planned to ambush the Traditional Values Coalition, she said.

Lafferty told LifeSiteNews.com that she attempted to contact Attorney General Eric Holder and appealed to investigators at the Department of Justice but was “blown off.”

“If someone had mailed bacon to a mosque, all heck would have broken loose, and they would have sent in attorneys from the Justice Department. It’s considered a hate crime,” Lafferty told LifeSiteNews. “But they ignore the concerns of Christians.”

... The TVC has received “many, many threats from the homosexual and transgender community,” Lafferty said – adding that LGBT extremists had attacked the home of TVC’s chairman, her father Rev. Lou Sheldon, as well as its office in Anaheim, California.

... Like FRC President Tony Perkins, she believes the Southern Poverty Law Center’s designation of TVC as a “hate group” played a role in landing pro-family lobbyists on a hit list.
