Tell CNN To Stop Publishing SPLC’s Libelous Website calling Christian Advocacy Groups “Hate Groups”!
Time and time again, elite liberal news organizations demonstrate clear bias against conservative and Christian causes and stories. One clear annual reminder of this truth is how little coverage the March For Life attracts from news sites despite being the biggest annual public demonstration by any group in America! The cause is pro-life, so the media ignore it. For another example, during recent protests and demonstrations in Boston, supposedly anti-racist leftist protestors called “Antifa” spent most of their time assaulting police officers and peaceful pro-life protestors. But the media didn’t report on that either.
Now, the dishonest media is at it again. Instead of reporting on actual violence in the public square, CNN decided to publish a list of “hate groups.” The timing made some sense: many organizations on the list are actual racist and anti-Semitic groups that should be called out and shamed, especially after the events of Charlottesville. But, and this is a big “but,” the list also included many Christian groups for nothing other than their biblical view of marriage.
Sign here to tell CNN that Alliance Defending Freedom, the Family Research Council, and other Christian groups are not “hate groups.” And we will not stand by and watch them unfairly malign good people of faith.
Here’s what happened: CNN published an article last week that purported to list hate groups around the country, and included a map to all of them. The title to the article read: “Here are all the active hate groups where you live.” Although it got this list of hate groups from the Southern Poverty Law Center, which several independent organizations are now condemning as callously politically motivated with who it attacks, it parroted the list as fact as you can see from the headline.
Then, after it received criticism, it actually changed the headline to be more accurate: “The Southern Poverty Law Center’s list of hate groups.” (This is a key example of how making our voices heard can affect change—CNN had to change its deceptive headline because of vigilant readers.) But there is still a big problem with the article. It still publicizes the callous and false maligning of Christian groups by SPLC!
If you look at the chart in the article there are different categories of “hate groups in the United States.” Some are actually hateful categories—like the KKK and neo-Nazis—but another supposedly hateful category is groups with “Christian Identity.” You read that right. According to the SPLC, “Christian Identity” is a category of hate. And CNN is still publishing this anti-religious bigotry.
Sign this petition to let CNN know that we will not stand for this obviously anti-Christian bias. One of the “hate groups” listed for Arizona is Alliance Defending Freedom—which is a legal advocacy group that protects pro-life causes and religious liberty. In listing ADF alongside the KKK and actual evil groups, SPLC is obviously deploying anti-Christian bias and attempting to silence people who disagree with it—rather than actually engaging with conservative arguments. This is a sick and unfair tactic, and CNN should stop helping them to employ it!
We are here. We see the bias. And we will not be silent as long as Christian groups are unfairly maligned.
Sign this petition now!
Christian groups are not “hate groups”
