“Hate” is criminalizing Christianity (Liberty Counsel)

From the desk of:
Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman,
Liberty Counsel

It's happening daily in the so-called mainstream media, in the public square, on university campuses, in schools, on social media, by Marxist politicians, and even in some courtrooms. Free speech and religious views are being censored, mocked, diminished, and labeled as "Hate."

Outrageously, the Southern Poverty Law Center's (SPLC) "Hate Map" is now being trumpeted as gospel – even elevated above the true Gospel! Their "Hate" moniker is criminalizing Christianity. The SPLC has now begun adding some churches to its "Hate Map."

If this were just a matter of debate and a war of words, it would not be such a threat, but it is much more because of the SPLC's powerful allies.

I am not an alarmist, but I am alarmed by the influence of the SPLC on so many channels of communication (Google, YouTube, Amazon, Twitter, Vimeo, Norton's security software) and commerce (PayPal, Stripe, Discover Card, Prudential, AmazonSmile). In short, the SPLC wants to destroy, punish, or silence anyone who shares our Judeo-Christian values. The SPLC and its allies want to shut down our right to speak, our right to exist, and our right to "buy and sell" (Rev. 13:17).

And not only are the SPLC's "Hate" designations lies, they are dangerous as they have led to a number of attacks.

+ + We cannot let the SPLC win!

Silence or complacency in the face of this threat is not an option! We can be aware of the looming threat, but cannot be intimidated!

Over the past few weeks, our Liberty Counsel legal team has been working overtime to push back against shocking and damaging attacks by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), one of the most well-funded, powerful, and dangerous organizations operating in America today.

The SPLC legal team is also serving as lead counsel on a major lawsuit that has the clear goal of destroying Liberty Counsel. The very nature of this legal attack makes it one of the most serious threats to Liberty Counsel we have yet faced.

PLUS… right now there is an escalating threat to destroy Liberty Counsel. It stems from billionaire George Soros' new high-tech database, which is targeting pro-family organizations via the SPLC's "Hate Map"'

+ + Our counter-measures are increasing.

We are working on several fronts to counter-attack and expose this radical group that operates in the wide open and deep in the shadows as a so-called non-profit organization. Yet, we know of their tens of millions of dollars funneled into secret offshore accounts.

We are organizing a coalition of groups to fight back and expose the SPLC. I am leading a legal strategy committee to go on a counter-attack.

In addition to our national campaign to expose and oppose this neo-Marxist group, we are also calling on the Justice Department and the IRS to investigate the SPLC – and for Congress to hold hearings regarding their methodologies.

If we don't take a stand now, it will be too late! But to be effective in our opposition to this Leftist "Hate" group, we must have your support.

As of this morning, we need $45,000 in funding by the end of the month to help us take on the SPLC while we battle against the "Goliaths" of Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, and continue other key battles for faith and liberty.

Please prayerfully consider how you can help. Then, make your best tax-deductible gift to help Liberty Counsel fight back!

+ + It's not gonna be easy!

In truth, we need your prayer and financial support — and lots of it — this month, next month, and into the coming year. Here's why.

If we lose this battle with the SPLC and its Leftist allies, who want to silence us, we will lose our freedom of speech, and our right to religious liberty and right of conscience. And since Judeo-Christian values will be officially linked to "Hate," the ramifications for reaching our culture with the true Gospel could be devastating. You see, these attacks affect ALL OF US!

As our legal team confronts more and more examples of overt anti-faith bigotry, we're seeing a profound escalation of discrimination against Christians across the nation. You and I cannot allow the criminalization of Christian beliefs and the purging of biblical ideals from our society to happen on our watch!

Standing with Liberty Counsel gives you a voice to keep America from slipping further into moral decline. Your gifts equip us to fight for the restoration of the Constitution's guarantee of religious liberty and right of conscience upon which America was founded. 

That's why your support is so critical.
