Christian legal group denied Amazon smile donations

On Amazon there is an option to give a percentage of a purchase to a non-profit organisation.

One organisation denied this though is Alliance Defending Freedom – the legal group who defend religious liberty across the world and fight court cases for people of faith whose rights are being abused.

The decision was made by the Southern Poverty Law Centre (SPLC), whose job is to identify hate groups and have designated ADF as a hate group and an anti-LGBTQ group.

They said in 2017: "The Alliance Defending Freedom spreads demonizing lies about the LGBT community in this country and seeks to criminalize it abroad."

In a blog on the ADF website, Sarah Kramer writes in response to being snubbed that the SPLC have: "devolved into a propaganda machine dedicated to crushing dissent. It does this by labeling anything they disagree with as "hate" – even if those beliefs are widely held and constitutionally protected (as ours – and those of our clients and supporters – most certainly are)."

She says ADF: "work at the highest levels. Our Supreme Court victories speak for themselves, with seven victories at the High Court in the past seven years. Just last year, we secured a 7-2 victory representing a church-run preschool."

Kramer says the SPLC are against any support of views that they disagree with: "The SPLC, however, would prefer to silence all opposing views, ridding the public square of civil discourse."
