I stand with my queer brothers and sisters and denounce the terrible act that took place at the Family Research Center on Wednesday, but I also say enough is enough. Our deep, dark secrets only have as much shame as we give them.
The first step to undertake in an event such as this is to determine in an unbiased manner whether the incident falls under the objective definitions promulgated with regard to hate crime and terrorism, irrespective of how the crimes are eventually charged.
There are unconfirmed reports that the alleged shooter was angry with the Family Research Council's position on same-sex marriage, and that he made comments against the group's position as he attempted to enter. If true, this would be an anomaly.
