MONTGOMERY, Ala. (ChurchMilitant.com) - Groups that promote natural marriage are being smeared as hateful by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

SPLC is confirming this in its annual 2020 publication called the "Year in Hate and Extremism 2020." Joining Church Militant and 838 other organizations on SPLC's list are the Alliance Defending Freedom, C-FAM, Liberty Counsel and the Ruth Institute, reports Catholic News Agency.

"We really are in a very serious combat for the institution of marriage," said Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse.

All these groups defend the dignity of human life and oppose so-called same-sex marriage.

"Checks started pouring in and [SPLC] went 'wow, this fighting hate thing is profitable,'" said one observer.

The SPLC considers itself a watchdog group against organizations that promote hate. The Center's Hate Ideology Map includes the categories of "anti-LGBT," "Christian identity" and "radical traditional Catholicism," among others.

The SPLC's leftist worldview, claim its critics, conflates the rejection of disordered behaviors with the hatred of people.

For example:

  • The Ruth Institute's primary focus is the breakdown of the family and its impact on children
  • The Liberty Counsel is a Christian ministry dedicated to defending religious freedom, the sanctity of human life and the family
  • C-FAM, or Center for Family and Human Rights, is a research institute dedicated to defending the family and national sovereignty from harmful international policies

"It's all about the sexual revolution and imposing the sexual revolution on the Western world," said C-FAM president Austin Ruse.

But like Church Militant, these organizations are classified as hate groups for simply spreading the truth about the nature of marriage and family.

Notably missing from SPLC's hate group list are Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA, both admitting to their weighty roles in last summer's rioting, looting and destroying of property. Police groups have called them terrorist organizations.

Objective observers note that while SPLC seeks to defend those who suffer injustice, its progressive ideology blurs its vision. And this often leads them to call defenders of truth, goodness and the natural order "hate groups."
