It takes a lot of nerve for an organization who's acronym spells "SPlC" to accuse other groups of being racist.

Yeah, these people still have the democrat=liberal=socialist=communist=facists=dictator=hitler mentality.  So anytime there is a democrat in office they panic.
The fact that the president is a Black Demcrat with a funny name only adds to their fears.

There are tons of articles that cover it.  But, this is my opinion.  You are not obligated to either read the articles nor agree with me.  The FRC made the list for being advocates of traditional marriage.  That led to a shooting.  But, the list is a cash cow for the SPLC, so it grows.

Yes, because I see a lot of Unions hating on particular groups of people because of their race, gender, religion or sexual orientation.

Really?  I was under the impression it was because they advocated violence, incarceration, and hatred of homosexuals and due to their constant demonizing of gays, including claiming that all gays plan to rape children.

Let's look at some of the fun:

"The videos are titled 'It Gets Better.' They are aimed at persuading kids that although they'll face struggles and perhaps bullying for 'coming out' as homosexual (or transgendered or some other perversion), life will get better. ...It's disgusting. And it's part of a concerted effort to persuade kids that homosexuality is okay and actually to recruit them into that lifestyle."
- Tony Perkins, FRC fundraising letter, August 2011

"Those who understand the homosexual community-the activists-they're very aggressive, they're-everything they accuse us of they are in triplicate. They're intolerant, they're hateful, vile, they're spiteful. .... To me, that is the height of hatred, to be silent when we know there are individuals that are engaged in activity, behavior, and an agenda that will destroy them and our nation."
-Tony Perkins, Speaking to the Oak Initiative Summit, April 2011

"We believe the evidence shows ... that relative to the size of their population, homosexual men are more likely to engage in child sexual abuse than are heterosexual men."
- Peter Sprigg, "Debating Homosexuality: Understanding Two Views." 2011.

"While activists like to claim that pedophilia is a completely distinct orientation from homosexuality, evidence shows a disproportionate overlap between the two. ... It is a homosexual problem."
- FRC President Tony Perkins, FRC website, 2010

"[W]elcoming open homosexuality in the military would clearly damage the readiness and effectiveness of the force - in part because it would increase the already serious problem of homosexual assault in the military."
- Peter Sprigg, "Homosexual Assault in the Military," 2010

"A little-reported fact is that homosexual and lesbian relationships are far more violent than are traditional married households."
-- Timothy Dailey, FRC publication, "Homosexual Parenting: Placing Children at Risk," 2002

"Gaining access to children has been a long-term goal of the homosexual movement."
- Robert Knight, FRC director of cultural studies, and Frank York, 1999

"[Homosexuality] ... embodies a deep-seated hatred against true religion."
- Steven Schwalm, FRC senior writer and analyst, in "Desecrating Corpus Christi," 1999

"One of the primary goals of the homosexual rights movement is to abolish all age of consent laws and to eventually recognize pedophiles as the 'prophets' of a new sexual order."
-1999 FRC publication, "Homosexual Behavior and Pedophilia," Robert Knight and Frank York


It has nothing to do with marriage.

No, I'm happy to hear anything you have to say. But if you start defending the Family Research Counsel, you're going to get pushback. These are bad people who do bad things.

The Non-hateful NRC's stance on Homosexuality from Wiki:


Statements on homosexualityAccording to the Family Research Council, "homosexual conduct is harmful to the persons who engage in it and to society at large, and can never be affirmed" and it is "by definition unnatural, and as such is associated with negative physical and psychological health effects."[19] The Council also asserts that "there is no convincing evidence that a homosexual identity is ever something genetic or inborn".[19] An , the case that overturned sodomy laws on privacy grounds.[20] The summary of the amicus curiae brief declares that "States may discourage the 'evils' ... of sexual acts outside of marriage by means up to and including criminal prohibition" and that it is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Family_Research_Council#cite_note-21">[21 ] acts".[22] Similar positions have been advocated by representatives of the organisation since the Supreme Court case was decided in 2003.

In February 2010, the Family Research Council's Senior Researcher for Policy Studies, [25][26] Perkins repeated the FRC's association of gay men with pedophilia, stating: "If you look at the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Family_Research_Council#cite_note-Nov29Ha rdball-25">[25][26] The opinions expressed by Perkins are contradicted by mainstream social science research on same-sex parenting,[27] and on the likelihood of child molestation by homosexuals and [27][28] Some scientists whose work is cited by the American College of Pediatricians - a small conservative organization which was formed when the [29] The opinions and statements made by Sprigg and Perkins in 2010 contributed to the decision by the Intelligence Report.[30]

It doesn't necessarily indicate that they're racist.  The entire "Obama is a Muslim socialist fascist that is coming to take your guns and force feed your children kale" tone that has been pushed by the right wing since his first election is enough to convince the type of mentally handicapped individuals that would be willing to join these types of groups in the first place to do so.

It's almost like the spread of social media does more than just allows hipsters to take pictures of food and post them on them on Instagram. It's not really that big of a deal since by using social media they lose the one strength they had before, anonymity.  It's really hard to commit acts of violence when your using Facebook to organize Klan rallies.

In 2003, former Marine and Louisiana state representative Anthony Richard "Tony" Perkins became president of the FRC after a failed 2002 run for one of Louisiana's U.S. Senate seats. Under his leadership, the group continues to peddle its false claims about homosexuality and has made combating the "homosexual agenda" a seemingly obsessive interest.

In 1996, while managing the U.S. Senate campaign of Woody Jenkins against Mary Landrieu, Perkins paid $82,500 to use the mailing list of former Klan chieftain Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), a white supremacist group that has described black people as a "retrograde species of humanity." Perkins claimed not to know the group's ideology at the time, but it had been widely publicized in Louisiana and the nation, because in 1999 - two years before Perkins' speech to the CCC - Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott had been embroiled in a national scandal over his ties to the group. GOP chairman Jim Nicholson then urged Republicans to avoid the CCC because of its "racist views."

Not defending them, honestly.  I disagree with everything they say.  But, I don't think they are a hate group.  They are fundies for sure.  They believe homosexuality is a sin.  They believe same sex marriage is a sin.  I still can't find anything credible that said they advocate violence of any kind.  The SPLC plays fast and loose with their labeling because it drives donations.  Unfortunately, it has consequences, too.  And, IMO, it casts them in a bad light.

Geez, why am I not surprised? For some reason TN has become a hotbed of these kind of groups, to the point where you can hardly walk across a field without stumbling over one of them. I'm just glad we moved out of that state before it took off on its backwards slide.
