Jerry Boykin: Christians being targeted for murder

In an exclusive February 7th, 2014 interview with WorldNetDaily, Jerry Boykin, executive vice president of the Family Research Council, once again takes issue with his organization having been designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group.

Given that the Family Research Council specializes in pushing homophobia and Islamophobia, the designation should hardly have been all that surprising to begin with.

"It is the intention of the SPLC to fix animus and hostility on the organizations it places on its Hate Map," said Boykin.

Boyking also complained that "The SPLC is run by the sort of political ideologues who can dissociate their actions from the humanity of the people they harm. There has been no change to the Hate Map nor will there be.

"One year has passed since [the Hate Map's] connection to Corkins' act of terrorism was clearly laid out in a federal court in Washington, D.C. How much time would you have needed to say, 'Enough is enough?'"

Boykin was referring to an August 2012 incident in which a gunman, Floyd Corkins II, shot a security guard in the arm at the FRC's Washington, D.C. headquarters, who had reportedly targeted the FRC because they were anti-gay.

While this is in no way condoned, Boykin is deliberately overlooking the fact that the FRC's designation as a hate group has not been lifted because the FRC has not stopped peddling hate.

Boykin should know this better than anyone, giving that he contributed more than his fair share of bigoted conspiracy theories to the FRC's grand total in 2013.
