A real hate group: Southern Poverty Law Center

Have you noticed how false teachers like radical pro-abortionist and false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way but He sure is a bigot” Currie of the UCC (Unitarians Counterfeiting Christ) take breaks from taking little girls to gay pride parades to reflexively refer to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “hate group” list when they don’t have facts to demonize groups that actually believe the Bible?  Well, their deceptions can be very dangerous.  See this from a few years ago: VIDEO: Terrorist Floyd Corkins Tells FBI He Used SPLC ‘Hate’ List to Find Target.  The Family Research Council is the opposite of hateful, but people like Chuck and the SPLC try to shut down opposing views by labeling them as such.  It is a despicably cynical move on their part, but what should we expect from such wolves?

Now pass the popcorn: Apple-backed Southern Poverty Law Center wracked in turmoil, called a ‘con’ for ‘bilking gullible liberals’   What a surprise!  Racist and sexist Leftists get rich bilking gullible Leftists.  Sweet, sweet schadenfreude. Sadly, the media will gloss over their hypocrisy and how foolish their supporters were and they’ll continue to pretend that if the SPLC calls you a hater, then you must be a hater.

Much more here by a former SPLC employee.  Spoiler alert: The employees knew it was a con.

In the days since the stunning dismissal of Morris Dees, the co-founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center, on March 14th, I’ve been thinking about the jokes my S.P.L.C. colleagues and I used to tell to keep ourselves sane. Walking to lunch past the center’s Maya Lin–designed memorial to civil-rights martyrs, we’d cast a glance at the inscription from Martin Luther King, Jr., etched into the black marble—“Until justice rolls down like waters”—and intone, in our deepest voices, “Until justice rolls down like dollars.” The Law Center had a way of turning idealists into cynics; like most liberals, our view of the S.P.L.C. before we arrived had been shaped by its oft-cited listings of U.S. hate groups, its reputation for winning cases against the Ku Klux Klan and Aryan Nations, and its stream of direct-mail pleas for money to keep the good work going. The mailers, in particular, painted a vivid picture of a scrappy band of intrepid attorneys and hate-group monitors, working under constant threat of death to fight hatred and injustice in the deepest heart of Dixie. When the S.P.L.C. hired me as a writer, in 2001, I figured I knew what to expect: long hours working with humble resources and a highly diverse bunch of super-dedicated colleagues. I felt self-righteous about the work before I’d even begun it.

The first surprise was the office itself. On a hill in downtown Montgomery, down the street from both Jefferson Davis’s Confederate White House and the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, where M.L.K. preached and organized, the center had recently built a massive modernist glass-and-steel structure that the social critic James Howard Kunstler would later liken to a “Darth Vader building” that made social justice “look despotic.” It was a cold place inside, too. The entrance was through an underground bunker, past multiple layers of human and electronic security. Cameras were everywhere in the open-plan office, which made me feel like a Pentagon staffer, both secure and insecure at once. But nothing was more uncomfortable than the racial dynamic that quickly became apparent: a fair number of what was then about a hundred employees were African-American, but almost all of them were administrative and support staff—“the help,” one of my black colleagues said pointedly. The “professional staff”—the lawyers, researchers, educators, public-relations officers, and fund-raisers—were almost exclusively white. Just two staffers, including me, were openly gay.

During my first few weeks, a friendly new co-worker couldn’t help laughing at my bewilderment. “Well, honey, welcome to the Poverty Palace,” she said. “I can guaran-damn-tee that you will never step foot in a more contradictory place as long as you live.”

“Everything feels so out of whack,” I said. “Where are the lawyers? Where’s the diversity? What in God’s name is going on here?”

“And you call yourself a journalist!” she said, laughing again. “Clearly you didn’t do your research.”

P.S. I quit following the Currie clown show a few years ago, but his blog shows the Molech-worshiping absurdity of the the “Christian” Left.   Wearing a collar at all times because no one would mistake him for being religious otherwise?  Check.  Worshiping MLK instead of Jesus?  Check.  Anti-gun but pro-abortion?  Check.  Pro-open borders and peddling silly lies conflating Jesus with illegal aliens?  Check.  Anti-ICE while not personally housing illegals?  Check.  Unequally yoked and Christ-mocking “interfaith” gibberish?  Check. What a self-parody.   Anyone following a phony like Chuck will get what he wants and deserves.

A terrific brochure: The Truth About Planned Parenthood.  Please read and share!

Great perspective on the most offensive verse in the Bible.  Use it when people try to play the “gotcha” game on politically correct issues.  You’ll not only be standing up for the truth (yes, homosexual behavior is a sin), but you’ll be using it to segue to the broader Gospel message.

“The most offensive thing I believe is Genesis 1:1, and everything it implies.

“That is, I believe in a sovereign Creator who is Lord and Definer of all. Everything in the universe — the planet, the laws of physics, the laws of morality, you, me — everything was created by Another, was designed by Another, was given value and definition by Another. God is Creator and Lord, and so He is ultimate. That means we are created and subjects, and therefore derivative and dependent.
“Therefore, we are not free to create meaning or value. We have only two options. We can discover the true value assigned by the Creator and revealed in His Word, the Bible; or we can rebel against that meaning.
“Any time you bring up questions about any of these issues, you do so from one of two stances. You either do it as someone advocating and enabling rebellion against the Creator’s design, or as someone seeking submissive understanding of that design. You do it as servant or rebel. There is no third option.

University shocked when Muslim espouses Islam’s view of homosexuals – they assumed that their enemy’s (Christianity) enemy (Islam) would be their friend.  Not so.  I think they are just afraid of criticizing Islam, so they go for the safe target, Christianity – even though we’ve done more to elevate women than any other worldview.

I guess the pass given to Islam shouldn’t surprise me.  The political left is just as willfully blind to the way Islam and Muslims treat women.  Women who are suspected of shaming their family’s name are beaten, maimed, or killed with the approval of their societies and even their own family.  But trying to prevent mothers from killing their pre-born children is somehow a war on women.

Pat Robertson Claims Second-Hand Goodwill Sweaters Might Carry Demons — Thanks, false teacher Pat Robertson, for continuing to make Christianity look bad.

Tony Jones goes full-blown false teacher by denying the need for the cross (among other things).  The good news is that Jones got too warm and took off the sheep’s clothing. Now he is an unapologetic, open wolf and is unveiled for all to see.

Also note that false teacher Jay Bakker (son of Jim and Tammy Faye) said “Would you agree that the Bible is a flawed collection of writings?”  I love when false teachers out themselves like that.

1 Thessalonians 2:13 And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is at work in you who believe.

First Baptist of Dallas Pastor Robert Jeffress’ Powerful Response to Tebow Controversy – this has turned out well for them and the proclamation of the Gospel.  I think Tebow is still a good guy but he wimped out here.  Hopefully he’ll do better next time. 

Folks, our response to Tim Tebow caving in to the “Gay Thought Police” is coming soon. Here is First Baptist Church of Dallas Pastor Robert Jeffress’ wonderful response to the controversy Sunday, Feb. 24, 2013 at the church. It has been very encouraging to watch Jeffress (with God’s help) so effortlessly turn “lemons into lemonade” on this story. When even “TMZ Live” sides with Pastor Jeffress over Tebow on the story (a TMZ host said Tebow “wussed out on this one”), you know something interesting is afoot in the culture. My sense is that even as “gay power” grows in America — with all its accompanying intolerance and anti-Christian bigotry — there is also rising a societal disgust with speech-stifling political correctness. Maybe truly hate-filled homosexual militants like Wayne Besen (who smears Jeffress as a “hate pastor” HERE) are actually helping the pro-family movement. Let’s hope so.

Kind, loving, tolerant “reverend” says Al Mohler is just like a Muslim terrorist because he holds the same view about marriage that Obama did until just a few months ago.  Fortunately HuffPo allowed comments that eviscerated the wolf’s attack.

10 Reasons to Quit Soft Drinks – or at least only drink them sparingly.

This speaks volumes.  When business people have to cut expenses, they cut non-essentials first and minimize the impact to customers.  The government should minimize the impact to taxpayers, but instead Obama & Co. are deliberately and unnecessarily making our lives more miserable and dangerous simply to convince the masses that we still aren’t spending enough.

Southern Poverty Law Center Silent as Floyd Corkins’ Plea Agreement Confirms: SPLC ‘Hate’ List Guided Him to Family Research Council
 

Potential mass-murderer and deranged LGBT activist Floyd Corkins used the Southern Poverty Law Center’s spurious “hate” list to target FRC.

“Floyd Corkins II, 28, acknowledged in a plea agreement that he intended to kill as many people as possible during the August shooting at the Family Research Council. He also planned to target other organizations that oppose gay marriage if he wasn’t stopped.

Corkins intended to smear the sandwiches in the faces of his victims to make a statement about gay rights opponents, he acknowledged during a hearing Wednesday.” — AP report on Corkins’ plea deal
