Family Research Council Shooting Demonstrates Toxic Environment – OpEd

By

First and foremost, our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by the shooting at the Family Research Council.

Early reports indicate that the motives of the shooter are cause for serious concern. One source told Fox News that the suspect “made statements regarding their policies, and then opened fire with a gun striking a security guard.”

After he was apprehended the suspect said, “It was not about you. It was about what this place stands for.”

Is this what we have come to? Has the environment become so toxic that a faith-based organization becomes a target of an attack simply because it holds traditional values on sexuality, marriage and life?

Unfortunately it seems that this may be the case.

We hope that this incident is taken seriously. There are still a couple of months to go before the election and signs indicate that they will be contentious. Now is the time for people of goodwill to call for civility and condemn this attack.
