The Southern Poverty Law Center Hate (Slander) List....Family Values Under Attack!

The Southern Poverty Law Center has a list of "Extremist Hate Groups" on their website. To be clear, most belong there as they have earned the reputation of being historically hateful and criminally violent. Others listed are merely defenders of Christian family values and not at all hateful. I have attached the attack blurb the SPLC has listed on their website alongside the actual "about us" listed on the accused's website. The following three groups are LAWFULLY educating the public on issues of historic family values and are not at all engaged in any activity which is unlawful nor are they impugning the reputation of others as SPLC is clearly doing with their "attack" website. You decide:


SPLC claim: Alliance Defending Freedom Founded by some 30 leaders of the Christian Right, the Alliance Defending Freedom is a legal advocacy and training group that has supported the recriminalization of homosexuality in the U.S. and criminalization abroad; has defended state-sanctioned sterilization of trans people abroad.

The truth is:
Alliance Defending Freedom is an American conservative Christian nonprofit organization with the stated goal of advocating, training, and funding on the issues of "religious freedom, sanctity of life, and marriage and family."



SPLC claim: Initially founded as the National Federation for Decency, the American Family Association (AFA) originally focused on what it considered indecent television programming and pornography. The AFA says it promotes "traditional moral values" in media. A large part of that work involves "combating the homosexual agenda" through various means, including publicizing companies that have pro-gay policies and organizing boycotts against them.

The truth is:
The American Family Association is a non-profit organization based in the United States that promotes fundamentalist Christian values. It opposes same-sex marriage, pornography, and abortion.
To that end, AFA spurs activism directed to:
  • Preservation of Marriage and the Family
  • Decency and Morality
  • Sanctity of Human Life
  • Stewardship
  • Media Integrity
...and what's really wrong with these values? Hello!

SPLC claim: The FRC often makes false claims about the LGBT community based on discredited research and junk science. The intention is to denigrate LGBT people as the organization battles against same-sex marriage, hate crime laws, anti-bullying programs and the repeal of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

The truth is:
The Family Research Councils vision statement: Family Research Council's vision is a culture in which all human life is valued, families flourish and religious liberty thrives. Mission of Organization: Family Research Council's mission is to advance faith, family and freedom in public policy and the culture from a Christian worldview.

....Ask yourself, where does your right to practice the historical teachings of Holy Scripture end and the right of others to suppress it begin? Answer soon before it becomes too late. Freedom is under attack in America!

The First Amendment guarantees freedoms concerning religion, expression, assembly, and the right to petition.  It forbids Congress from both promoting one religion over others and also restricting an individual’s religious practices.  It guarantees freedom of expression by prohibiting Congress from restricting the press or the rights of individuals to speak freely.  It also guarantees the right of citizens to assemble peaceably and to petition their government.
