Southern Poverty Law Center, the organization that named the Christian nonprofit “Family Research Council” on its list of “hate groups,” may soon be the subject of a $100-million defamation lawsuit.
“In the year 2012, if you take a Biblical stand, the media and groups like the SPLC identify you as a ‘hate group.’ Because the anti-God secular media gives a platform to radical organizations like the SPLC, it opens the door for people who reject Biblical Truth to commit acts of violence against those individuals and organizations who have been demonized by them.”
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.
Thursday, the Southern Poverty Law Center doubled-down on its attacks on the Family Research Council in a post by Senior Fellow Mark Potok:
The FRC routinely pushes out demonizing claims that gay people are child molesters and worse — claims that are probably false. It should stop the demonization and affirm the dignity of all people.
Who gets to define what a “hate group” is, and is it possible that it is the Southern Poverty Law Center that is spreading the most hate of all?
