Christian anti-LGBTQ legal organization earns the label hate group

Source: LGBTQ Nation


By Dawn Ennis · Thursday, February 16, 2017



The non-profit hate crimes watchdog group, the Southern Poverty Law Center, has added a new name to its list of extremist hatemongers: the National Alliance Defending Freedom.

According to a statement issued Wednesday by the SPLC, and first reported by the Washington Blade, the ADF was “founded by some 30 leaders of the Christian Right, the Alliance Defending Freedom is a legal advocacy and training group that specializes in supporting the recriminalization of homosexuality abroad, ending same-sex marriage, and generally making life as difficult as possible for LGBT communities in the U.S. and internationally.”

What is most amazing is that although the alliance has a worldwide reputation for homophobia, it has secured special advisory status at the United Nations, in the European Union, and with the Organization of American States.

According to the Montgomery, Alabama-based watchdogs, the ADF boasts more than 3,000 affiliated attorneys and works with over 200 organizations in the cause of “defending religious freedom.” The ADF describes it mission as to fight against the “concocted” constitutional right to abortion, laws that protect LGBTQ people, and calls the separation of church and state a “myth.”
