(American Family Association) This week, CNN listed the American Family Association as a "hate group" in a sham news article that could easily incite violence and place AFA employees and supporters in harm's way. CNN has since issued a correction and removed AFA by name off their website. Instead, CNN links to the Southern Poverty Law Center website which falsely lists AFA as a "hate group."
AFA is urging CNN to stop using the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as a source when reporting real news. The SPLC is a radical organization and its hateful rhetoric was implicated in a 2012 shooting at the Family Research Council's headquarters in Washington, D.C..
By citing the SPLC, CNN underscores why many Americans don't trust it for honest reporting. The SPLC has been widely discredited over the years because of its false labeling of Christian organizations as "hate groups." In fact, even the liberal Obama Department of Justice quietly reprimanded SPLC and its attorneys because their conduct "overstepped the bounds of zealous advocacy and was unprofessional."
Many remember when the SPLC placed world renowned neurosurgeon, Dr. Ben Carson, on an "extremist" watch list. Why did they do this? Because Dr. Carson believes that marriage is between one man and one woman. READ MORE HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: While The Remnant denounces and condemns all actual hate groups (such as the Neo-Nazis, the KKK and the SPLC), we call upon all pro-life, pro-family, pro-Christian organizations targeted by the SPLC to unite against these dangerous purveyors of Fake News here in the country we all love. We support the AFA's call for justice, and we encourage our readers to sign the AFA petition to CNN, urging that network to stop using the Southern Poverty Law Center as a resource.
If Christians do not stand up for themselves against this orchestrated and Christophobic witch hunt, nobody will.
