The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), whose extremist rhetoric and labeling of the Family Research Council (FRC) contributed to a climate of hatred and intolerance against the Christian lobby, is now on the defensive after a gay pride activist attacked the organisation’s headquarters in Washington, DC yesterday. SNN was one of the first websites to raise questions about the possible connection between the SPLC’s extreme rhetoric and the violent attack, which led to a security guard being shot. We have also noted that the SPLC has not recanted any of their hateful charges against the Christian organisation nor apologised for stirring up anger and hatred against FRC. SNN was hardly alone in making this connection and pointing out the SPLC’s unsavory record of such behaviour. Many news and opinion websites, as well as mainstream media outlets, have mentioned the SPLC in connection to the shooting and questioned the group’s extreme tactics in promoting its far-Left, anti-Christian agenda. Now, we have a defensive statement from Mark Potok, whom SNN singled out for criticism given his important role in the anti-Christian movement, on the subject. Again, we would like to point out that though the SPLC denies promoting violence, they have not apologised for their extremist language or for creating a climate of hatred and intolerance towards the FRC.
