Letter: We Reject the Bigoted Southern Poverty Law Center’s Judgments on ‘Hate Groups’

We sent the following response to a snide letter by George Jones regarding the (bigoted) judgments of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) about our friends at MassResistance, the leading pro-family group in Massachusetts exposing and fighting the aggressive homosexualist agenda. The SPLC stubbornly adheres to its classification of the Illinois Family Institute (my former employer) as a “hate group” — preposterously grouping this American Family Association-affiliated organization with tens of thousands of supporters in the Land of Lincoln amongst wicked Nazi and white supremacist groups (see IFI’s initial response HERE and follow-up HERE).

The SPLC has embarrassed itself by politicizing “hate” in the service of pro-homosexual politics. Perhaps if it stopped demonizing Christian and pro-family groups like IFI and MassResistance based on their moral opposition to homosexual practice, we would take its assessment of who the real haters are more seriously. — Peter LaBarbera, www.americansfortruth.com

We reject the Southern Poverty Law Center’s biased assessment of what is or is not a “hate” group, Mr. Jones. We regard the SPLC itself as bigoted in the extreme (and, in essence, hateful) toward pro-family groups. And you are right: we don’t “hate queer people.” We disagree with them about their behavior and their embrace of homosexuality as an identity. I hope you don’t “hate” us. Best–PL

You know mass resistance is hate group, as classified by the Southern Poverty Law Center, right? Why are you citing them (and thanking them!) in your most recent post on Massachusetts Queer Youth Pride day? You\’re not sympathizing with a hate group, are you? Does that make you a hate group? No, surely that can\’t be the case. You don\’t hate queer people. You just think they aren\’t living how god wants. Of course. How could I be so silly?
