LivePrayer to File $100 Million Lawsuit Against Southern Poverty Law Center
National Organization for Marriage (NOM) Blog ^ | Aug 17 2012 | Brian Brown

Posted on 08/17/2012 5:30:41 PM PDT by scottjewell

Bill Keller, the world's leading Internet Evangelist and the founder of LivePrayer.com, with over 2.4 million subscribers worldwide reading the Daily Devotional he has written every morning for 13 years on the issues of the day from a Biblcial worldview, is planning to file a $100 million defamation lawsuit against the Southern Poverty Law Center for labeling him and his ministry as a "hate group."

In an exclusive interview, Keller said, "The sad shooting the other day at the Family Research Council by a man who supports the radical homosexual agenda, was clearly fueled by the left wing group, the Southern Poverty Law Center.

... Keller said that if the Southern Poverty Law Center does not take his name and his ministry off of their 'hate map' in the next 72 hours, his attorneys will be filing a $100 million dollar defamation suit in Federal Court against the organization.

The doctrine of vicarious liability . . .

20+ years ago the SPLC won a civil law suit against Tom Metzger, his son, and his white supremacist group. The suit was on behalf of a victim of a vicious murder by skinheads of a defenseless black man.

"Using the doctrine of vicarious liability, plaintiffs' attorneys argued that the Metzgers should be found liable for intentionally inciting the skinheads to engage in violent confrontations with minorities. A jury agreed, returning a record $12.5 million verdict against the Metzgers and WAR. Tom Metzger was personally responsible for $5.5 million of that sum."

Where did the shooter get his hatred? A gay group? The SPLC? Where?

Yes, this doctrine now turns itself back on SPLC. Thanks for that info.

I’ve been wondering for 2 years why some organization designated by SPLC as a “hate group” didn’t do this. Better late than never!

Exactly. The Left has been getting away with this s*** for years and it’s time we used Alinsky’s rules against THEM.

Why does the SPLC get lots of money and get to define what is politically correct, and what is hate speech, and what groups should be persona non gratis and what groups should be illegal, and yet they are a private organization with their own agenda of gun control and pro racism, but for their own.

They do not deserve to have this power and influence with law enforcement in my opinion. These are government functions that even the government should not be doing.

All the Christians targeted by this leftist radical group should do a class action suit.

Importantly, the SPLC is nothing more than a “barratry”(*) scam. A bunch of white take generous donations from liberal organizations to harass, defame and sue conservative organizations by associating them with real hate groups.

(*) barratry - The offense of persistently instigating lawsuits, typically groundless ones. Lawyers who engage in this are sometimes disbarred.

I’m pretty sure that a year or more ago, I read that the SPLC was off-shoring its funds.

Great. I’d like these anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-white hucksters and frauds put out of business and would like to see Morris Dees living out of a dumpster.

The SPLC is one part shake-down operation and the other part a hate group.

“Southern Poverty” is very adept at riding the usual wave of MSM liberal indignation.

They still have hides; they may be skinned and turned into useful products if necessary. These people stepped off planet Earth quite some time back and have now gotten into the business of soliciting murder.

What do you call 10,000 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?

A good start.

Probably until yesterday nobody could show harm. To sue, you need to show you have been harmed in some way. What happened Thursday should kick it off.

True. But their “hate group” list apparently made the LGBTs more confident and relentless in their attacks.

we were curious so we visited that website and found out there is a very broad definition of “hate” which so happens to encompass everything the DNC stands for. If you so much as voice opposition to anything they want, the “SPLC” finds a way to brand you a hate group.

Why is a group named the Southern Poverty Law Center, a group started to defend people against the Democrat party offshoots like the Klan, turning into a national clearinghouse for policy justification..

It’s a vicious triangle. Leftist orgs like Open Society and the Tides Foundation pump money into SPLC, to agitate the LGBTs and to harass conservatives.

What is needed is an equivalent organization, called, for example, the Citizens Un-American Activities Committee (CUAC, a play on words of HUAC), that would publicize the whole litany of anti-Americanism by both the left and the government.

So when an organization like the SPLC or NAACP called some conservative group a “hate group” or “racist”, the SPLC and NAACP would in turn be called “un-American” or “anti-American”.

And in all fairness, CUAC should also condemn government actions that are unconstitutional and oppressive, like the ever increasing paranoid security apparatus.

interesting.. looking at the wiki page, the SPLC had an endowment of 156 mil in 2008 and by 2010, after they worked with DHS to help them define “hate groups”, the endowment was 216 mil..

I guess it’s good business to brand people with opinions different that the bulldyke infested DHS, as hate groups.

Good for LifePrayer to go after the SPLC

The SPLC is nothing more than the Anti-White Ku Klux Klan. They support groups like La Raza (The Race)...which support Racial Ideology like Aztlan and Reconquista

The SPLC have slandered so many people and groups. If you do not support their Anti-White Ku Klux Klan agenda....they call you a “hate group”

Yeah, its about time someone took SPLC on. They’ve been designating anyone who disagrees with their purview a “hate group” with impunity for far too long.
