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.

    Perhaps the Justice Department intends to send a message that Christians are fair game?

    Eric Holder is a criminal with his own problems. Why would Christians expect anything from that department?

    Christians should expect nothing from the Communists in the Justice Department except persecution.

    The duty of the Christian is not to win, nor to persuade, nor to prevail.

    The duty of the Christian is to make an honest witness.

    Eric Holder should be impeached.

    If the Republicans were anything but the cowardly sycophants of big business, they should have done so long before now.

    The House voted to hold Holder in contempt of congress for obstructing the Fast & Furious investigation, and they have now filed civil charges against him. Congressman Issa and Senator Grassley have been heroic in their efforts to hold Holder accountable for his actions, but it's like chipping away at a concrete wall with a spoon.

    Hopefully Holder will be gone in November. He's a disgrace. I'm not sure who the people in this administration are, but they're not Americans.

    This is because in the "Animal Farm" reality, which is the Obama administration, everyone is "equal," but some are "more equal" than others.

    Andrea Lafferty... she's sane and credible. If you want your claims to be taken seriously, provide and example (a verifiable one) of a substantially similar situation that elicited a substantially different response from the D.O.J. Otherwise, we can simply dismiss this as more dishonest propaganda from hate groups.

    My goodness,I sense a lot of anger and hostility out there. Try and channel your anger to something a little more productive.

    Gee, Daniel, I guess we're all just overreacting to the fact that a crazed gay gunman tried to kill everyone at the FRC. No doubt his success would have pleased you greatly.
