THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: Well it's about time!....
( - A coalition that includes black pastors and pro-family organizations held a protest outside the headquarters of the Southern Poverty Law Center yesterday to protest the organization’s ongoing “slander” against pro-family organizations.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which has traditionally sought to counteract racist organizations in the south, has recently begun to categorize pro-family groups as “hate groups” for opposing the homosexual political agenda and condemning homosexual behavior as immoral.

Groups condemned as “hateful” by the SPLC include The Illinois Family Institute, Mass Resistance, Abiding Truth Ministries, and Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, all of which appeared at the protest or made supporting statements. The Family Research Council has also been condemned by the SPLC.

Among the African-American pastors protesting at SPLC headquarters were Pastor Glen Sawyer, of the Mt. Zion Church of God in Christ (Camden, North Carolina), Pastor Wil Nichols, Victorious Praise Fellowship (Durham, North Carolina), Pastor Jon Robinson, Kingdom C.O.M.E. Ministries (Clairton, Pennsylvania), and Pastor Kenneth Jefferson of Greater Harvest....

In addition, the SPLC has been slandering traditional Catholics for a number of years as well, including the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) in particular. Dixie nationalists and Southern independence organisations are very familiar with the methods of slander and libel frequently employed by the SPLC.

Many Traditional Catholics have been
slandered by the SPLC.
Waving a Dixie flag and believing in state's rights (subsidiarity) does not make one a racist any more than worshipping at a traditional Latin mass and questioning some of the perverse interpretations of Vatican II. The SPLC uses the tactic of guilt-by-association, which in itself proves nothing, but in their case, the association is not always real to begin with. Sometimes it's just implied, assumed or even just made up. The SPLC lost all credibility with traditionalist and family values groups a long time ago. Now with this latest episode, it's become apparent that they've lost all credibility with a growing number of black communities around the nation.

Liberal Modernists love to cite the SPLC's research papers as 'proof' that their ideological opponents are motivated by 'hate.' They use them as a means to discredit their opposition without ever giving an answer to their opponents arguments. Organisations like the SPLC have for years given Liberal Modernists the ammunition they need to skate past the tough questions and scrutiny often applied disproportionately to traditionalist pro-family groups. The real bigots are the ones running the SPLC and now the whole world can see that plainly.
