Does your school support a terrorist-connected group?

Does your school support a terrorist-connected group?

As most American schoolchildren enjoy summer break, many schools across the nation -- including one close to you -- are supporting a group directly connected in federal court to domestic terrorism in the name of "tolerance." Surprised? Read on.

We learned recently that 63 schools around the nation were awarded by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) with a "Mix it Up" School award. Those districts receiving awards have executed a plan through SPLC's Teaching Tolerance program.

"Teaching tolerance" may sound like a good thing, but when it comes from a group directly connected to domestic terrorism in federal court, there is ample cause for alarm. In August 2012, a gunman entered FRC's Washington, D.C. headquarters with the intention to kill as many of our staff as he could. He later admitted in federal court that he found FRC through the SPLC's "hate map." That map characterizes FRC as a hate group simply because we defend biblical marriage and other conservative values.

This same group with a twisted definition of "tolerance" is reaching into many public schools across the country with its "Teaching Tolerance" program and unfortunately, one of those schools is located near you. Click here to find which school in your city is a "Mix it up" award school.

Would you contact the principal at your local school, encouraging him or her to continue teaching your kids well but to reconsider being connected to the SPLC? Again, click here for the contact info and a letter that can be used as talking points. We would appreciate your support.

FRC is supportive of true tolerance based on the biblical reality that we are all made in the image of God and have value. Standing up for biblical marriage is not a hateful, intolerant act as the SPLC claims. Yet schools giving support for the SPLC, which has ties to domestic terrorism, is questionable at best.

Please join us today in asking schools to reconsider their ties to the SPLC.
