Family Research Council

Action

June 14, 2013 - Friday

The secret is out. The Obama administration has joined forces with perhaps the most anti-Christian organization in America today -- the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

By making reckless accusations against those who stand for biblical morality, the SPLC has incited violence and hatred against those who oppose the Obama administration on issues such as same-sex "marriage" and religious liberty.

The anti-Christian crusade instigated by the SPLC has already resulted in an armed terrorist attack on Family Research Council headquarters in Washington, D.C.

You would think that the Obama Justice Department would distance itself from the SPLC for creating a climate of animus and hatred toward groups like FRC, but since the attack on our headquarters the Justice Department has shown no signs of breaking ties with the SPLC.

That's why FRC is urging Congress to investigate the SPLC's ties to the Obama administration. Will you help us stand strong? The President needs to be exposed for colluding with the SPLC to stifle debate on social policy issues by means of intimidation, fear-mongering, and spreading lies.

FRC has never backed down in defense of the truth. And we never will! That's why we are leading the charge on Capitol Hill to hold President Obama and his allies accountable.

The majority of Americans do not agree with the President's leftist agenda to remake our country into a socialist state ruled by a totalitarian government bureaucracy. And the President knows this. So he is using -- and abusing -- his presidency to steamroll the American people and implement his radical vision for America. And he has turned to groups like the SPLC.

The SPLC is not to be trusted

  • The SPLC has become notorious for putting Christian organizations on its online "Hate Map" with a banner displaying menacing thugs in Nazi-style helmets. FRC is listed on SPLC's "Hate Map" alongside horrible and violent groups such as the Ku Klux Klan.
  • The Obama Justice Department conducted training sessions just last year with the SPLC because this organization is supposed to be a leading "authority" on extremist groups. Nothing could be further from the truth.
  • SPLC has a history of "manufacturing" data. For example, SPLC "experts" have alleged that hate groups and their influence in Americahave grown exponentially over the last few years. But the FBI figures show that hate crimes are down by 25%!

With less than four years left in office, President Obama is going for broke to accomplish his far-left agenda. In addition to the collusion between his administration and the SPLC, Planned Parenthood, and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender organizations, President Obama is using the bully pulpit and power of the presidency to promote abortion and same-sex "marriage" while stifling religious freedom at the same time.

The radical Left certainly has the right to be wrong. Freedom of speech is not discriminatory. However, what I strongly object to is anyone colluding with the federal government to force a radical agenda on the American people -- an agenda that most people strongly oppose.

Yet, the administration is silencing its opponents

I was appalled to find out that during the past two years President Obama's IRS has targeted certain nonprofit organizations for investigation. What types of organizations are under IRS scrutiny? Groups who criticize government excess or educate Americans on the U.S. Constitution and any organization with "tea party" or "patriot" in its name. Maine Senator Susan Collins describes this practice as "absolutely chilling" -- and even some Democrats are upset.

The mainstream media is showing small, yet encouraging signs by asking hard questions of the Administration. The truth will win out! By God's grace ...

The only way we can lose is to quit!

And quit is something FRC has never done in our 30-year history! Are you with us? I believe you are. That's why I am writing you today. Together we are going to change the course of our country and put it back on track for faith, family, and freedom.

Because of the unwavering support of people like you, FRC is often referred to as one of the strongest --and most successful -- advocates for American families today. And now FRC is about to embark on one of our most important challenges ever!

When the collusion between the Obama administration and the SPLC came to light, we immediately met with key members of Congress. We urged them to investigate the impropriety of this relationship. FRC finds it very troubling that an organization inciting hatred against Christians, which has already led to violence, has a seat at the table in the White House.

To date, a formal investigation has not been launched. The stakes are far too high to let the SPLC continue to further its hateful agenda. Congress must act -- and act NOW!

With your support, FRC will keep the pressure on congressional leadership to launch an investigation into the Southern Poverty Law Center and its relationship with the White House and the Justice Department.

And as we move into the summer months when donations tend to decline, please give a much-needed gift to FRC at this critical time.

To counter the vast resources of the SPLC and the Obama administration, FRC must have your support. FRC is launching a national publicity campaign to make Americans aware of the dangers represented by the SPLC. Already a number of articles, internet exposes, and news stories about SPLC have been published. We need to keep up the momentum.

Thank you in advance for standing with us in defense of what is right. With God's grace, we will stop this pernicious evil against people of faith in America.
