Family Research Council Hero Leo Johnson Talks with Media Following Sentencing of Homosexual Attacker Floyd Corkins
The following video was published by the Family Research Council (FRC) on September 20, 2013. I agree with Leo Johnson [at 6:40 on the vide0] that “gay” activist Floyd Corkins deserved a tougher sentence than 25 years (especially considering that only Johnson’s heroics likely kept Corkins from committing mass murder). Newsbusters documents HERE how the major networks ABC, NBC and CBS ignored the sentencing of Corkins, who targeted FRC based on a spurious “hate map” put out by the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
Needless to say, had the situation been reversed and a conservative activist had nearly committed mass murder at the headquarters of the Human Rights Campaign (a homosexual lobby group), the story would have been received far greater coverage than the shocking attack on FRC. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH [more information follows the the video, after the jump]

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today Chief Judge Richard Roberts of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia sentenced Floyd Lee Corkins II, the perpetrator of a terrorist act at the Family Research Council (FRC) on August 15, 2012. Judge Roberts sentenced Corkins to 25 years in prison after he pleaded guilty in February to three felony counts that included the charge of committing an act of terrorism while armed.
Mr. Leo Johnson, who ultimately stopped Mr. Corkins’ attack, delivered a statement before the court, as did FRC President Tony Perkins. Mr. Perkins delivered his statement on behalf of the FRC staff.
Mr. Johnson made the following comments during the sentencing:
“The actions of Floyd Lee Corkins have greatly impacted my life. I often experience feelings of anger and frustration when I think about all of the things that I have had, and continue, to endure both physically and psychologically as a result of this crime. I have had to endure surgery, with at least two more scheduled; painful, life-threatening blood clots which developed in my right lung; grueling physical therapy sessions; multiple medications and numerous doctors appointments as a result of this crime. My family was put under tremendous stress as well, as they tried to cope with the shock of what happened and the fear of not knowing whether I was even alive, let alone going to be OK.”

Mr. Perkins made the following comments during the sentencing:
“The attack at our headquarters did not just harm Leo. As the Court knows, Mr. Corkins’ stated intention was to kill as many FRC staff as possible to send a political message, a chilling, political message. But for Leo’s heroic conduct and the protective hand of the Lord, this crime might have ended like the tragic shooting that occurred earlier this week here in D.C.”
