Skip to comments.Southern Poverty Law Center: Social conservative organizations are hate groups
Posted on 12/06/2010 10:11:13 AM PST by ConjunctionJunction
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) says it will not back down from its decision to label the Family Research Council and other socially conservative groups as hate groups, on par with the Ku Klux Klan and the Aryan Nations, for their views about homosexuality.
Family Research Council President Tony Perkins recently asked SPLC to retract the hate group designation, but SPLC Intelligence Project Director Mark Potok told The Daily Caller that will never happen.
SPLCs Winter 2010 edition of its Intelligence Report magazine lists the Family Research Council as a hate group alongside the American Family Association, the Traditional Values Coalition, and 11 other social conservative groups. The report, titled 18 Anti-Gay Groups and Their Propaganda, also lists five other organizations as being anti-gay such as Concerned Women for America and the National Organization for Marriage but refrains from classifying them as hate groups.
According to SPLC, the Family Research Council, Concerned Women for America and the other similar groups spread known falsehoods claims about LGBT people that have been thoroughly discredited by scientific authorities and repeated, groundless name-calling.
Labeling people and groups as hate groups is laying the groundwork to then charge them with hate crimes using the full force of government to oppress people for their beliefs, said Concerned Women America President Wendy Wright.
Potok told MSNBCs Chris Matthews SPLC chose to add the FRC to its list of hate groups due to its claims that gay men molest children at higher rates than straight men, its insistence gay activists want to eliminate age of consent laws, and due to comments FRC Senior Research Fellow Peter Sprigg made suggesting homosexual behavior should be recriminalized.

Me: Southern Poverty Law Center is a hate group. A hate group that get federal money.
“Me: Southern Poverty Law Center is a hate group.”
The SPLC exists to denegrate Orththodox Jewish people and Christians.
You know, there was a time in this nation that the SPLC was an organization that many would have listened to. Does this group have any more credibility than the KKK anymore?
Where’s the BARRRRRRrrrffff!!!! Alert?
Any religion that calls sin “bad” has now been put on official notice by a self-appointed group of thought police.
Hey,Markie,this isn’t hate;it’s just a personal observation.
Your slimer than Paul Krugman!
I hate collectivism, totalitarianism and tyranny. In their book that makes me a “hater”. They’re technically right. So be it. Have a nice day, Morris, you dickhead! BTW, the last time you trashed one of Matt Bracken’s books, it caused me to go back and read it again, so you’re not ENTIRELY irrelevant!
And to fleece the taxpayers and the guilt-ridden gullibles.
And after that, those who condemn pedophilia.
I’m Jewish and my religion is also against homosexuality. If FRC is a hate group then we should also be included with them.
let em talk...CHRISTians have a kncak this time of year for ‘makin a “list” & checkin it twice’...

Fair enough, as long as I can refer to them as “baby-murdering perverts”.
OK sure fine but then that makes lefty groups such as yourself terrorist groups because f the violence you guys call for. What don’t like that? Bite me.
As the facades fall away, every liberal cause is shown to be a front for a radical political agenda. Aside from the herds of useful idiots, leftists believe in nothing but the destruction of capitalism and the subjugation of mankind.
So it is. Actually, got the spiders burrowing there right now for some specialized stuff. And they're only semi-polite :)).
The SPLC is a leftwing hate group.
They need to ask a child who has been molested by a queer for their views about homosexuality.
It has enough credibility to get our tax dollars.
Or you could ask the child Morris Dees molested.
Have they also deemed islam with that designation yet? I mean, we all know how they feel about Jews and Christians. /crickets
Sounds like it is time to lobby the new congress to defund these bozos along with NPR.
So does every madrassa in the US. And the country is crawling with them.
Exactly...we need the Tea party caucus to draft bills defunding these leftists/communist organizations...there is NO reason conservative Americans should have to continue to fund this crap...we may get get the votes to do it, but then we will know where each member of Congress stands going into 2012. I'd like to see which members support scum like the SPLC...
Sounds like we need a to make a 'defunding' list...let them stand on their own...if they can.
