Who’s Who of Nonprofits Blast Reporting Group for False ‘Hate’ Claims, American Renaissance, June 22, 2017:

A coalition that is virtually a who’s who of nonprofits is demanding that the CEO of Guidestar—a company that posts the financial reports of nonprofit organizations—stop a new program of “ostracism and dehumanization” on its site that already has led to violence.

WND reported Guidestar, a “public charity” that purports to be “neutral” and provide online “nonprofit information to a broad audience at no cost to those users,” began slamming Christian and other conservative organizations based on the recommendations of the Southern Poverty Law Center, which itself has been linked to domestic terror and once put Ben Carson on its list of “haters.”

Guidestar has been flagging the pages of nonprofit organizations that disagree with SPLC’s pro-abortion and pro-homosexual agenda, identifying them as “hate” organizations...

“We, the undersigned organizations and individuals, write to express our strong disagreement with Guidestar’s newly implemented policy that labels 46 American organizations as ‘hate groups.’ Your designations are based on determinations made by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a hard-left activist group. As such, SPLC’s aggressive political agenda pervades the construction of its ‘hate group’ listings,” the letter to Jacob Harold states.

However, the leaders point out SPLC “has no bona fides to make such determinations.”

“It is not a governmental organization using a rigorous criteria to create its lists, and it is not a scientifically oriented organization. The SPLC is merely another ‘progressive’ political organization.”

The letter is signed by representatives of Eagle Forum, the American Freedom Defense Initiative, American College of Pediatricians, Wallbuilders, Liberty Counsel, Family Research Council, National Organization for Marriage, London Center for Policy Research, Center for Security Policy, American Family Association, ACT for America, Secure America Now, Alliance Defending Freedom, Judicial Watch, the Heritage Foundation and many other groups...

The letter pointed out that SPLC’s Mark Potok stated: “Sometimes the press will describe us an monitoring hate crimes and so on. … I want to say plainly that our aim in life is to destroy these groups, to completely destroy them.”...
