Coral Ridge Ministries is suing the Southern Poverty Law Center. “The lawsuit alleges, among other things, that the SPLC illegally trafficked in false and misleading descriptions of the services offered by DJKM and committed defamation against DJKM arising from the publication and distribution of false information that libels the ministry’s reputation and subjects the ministry to
disgrace, ridicule, odium, and contempt in the estimation of the public If you disagree with any view the Left espouses you are a hater and belong to a hate group.”
In its lawsuit, D. James Kennedy Ministries also alleges religious discrimination by Amazon’s charity partner program AmazonSmile, which makes a small donation to shoppers’ designated nonprofits. Since AmazonSmile uses the SPLC as one way to determine organizations’ eligibility, and the SPLC based its “anti-LGBT” designation on the ministry’s Christian convictions, the suit claims that D. James Kennedy Ministries was wrongly excluded from the program and possible donations due to its religious beliefs.
Part of [D. James Kennedy Ministries] defense against calling opposition to same-sex marriage hateful comes from the US Supreme Court decision that made it legal. “Many who deem same-sex marriage to be wrong reach that conclusion based on decent and honorable religious or philosophical premises,” the court wrote, “and neither they nor their beliefs are disparaged here.” (Christianity Today)

The SPLC and its Leftist cohorts have a history of labeling any person or group that does not agree with them as “haters.”
If you disagreed with a policy advocated by former Pres. Obama, you were a racist and were most likely a member of the KKK or some other white supremacist group.
If you oppose same-sexuality and believe that transgenderism is immoral and unscientific, you guessed it, you are a hater and self-identify with others that make up a hate group.
The SPLC has found a way to rake in the cash and advance its Leftist agenda with its charge of “hate.” When it ran out of skin heads and Neo-Nazi groups that are few and far between, it needed to find a new way to raise funds. It did this by appropriating and redefining the word “hate.” Since “hate speech” and “hate crimes” were in vogue, why not create a “hate group” designation?
It was a genius move, so much so that liberals are standing in line to donate millions of dollars to the SPLC in an attempt to prove that they’re not haters all the while proving they are haters.
