The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a powerful, leftist advocacy group that has become a common adversary of Catholics, Christians, and conservatives. In the years following the Civil Rights Movement, it fought white supremacist groups, but now works fervently to advance a radical left agenda. Painting with a broad brush, the SPLC labels its political opponents as hate mongers, while ignoring the violence and hatred of the Left. The SPLC regularly mixes actual hate groups with pro-family and pro-American organizations and is notoriously for labeling and smearing individuals.
Dr. Carol Swain and Glenn Beck discuss the SPLC and steps that can be taken to curtail it’s evil influence.
Its current list of targets include the Alliance Defending Freedom, American Family Association (AFA), American Vision, Chalcedon Foundation, Christian Action Network, Concerned Women for America, Coral Ridge Ministries/Center for Reclaiming America, Family Research Council (FRC), Family Research Institute, Focus on the Family, Summit Ministries, and the Traditional Values Coalition, American College of Pediatricians (ACP), Campus Ministry USA, Center for Family and Human Rights (C-FAM), Liberty Counsel, the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH), The Ruth Institute, and World Congress of Families.
