The views of Ku Klux Klan, Bible believers and Social conservatives are involved in “hate crimes” against Homosexuals.
This is the view of The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in the US.
The foundation says it will not back down from its decision to label the Family Research Council and other socially conservative groups as hate groups, on par with the Ku Klux Klan and the Aryan Nations, for their views about homosexuality.
Family Research Council President Tony Perkins recently asked SPLC to retract the hate group designation, but SPLC Intelligence Project Director Mark Potok told The Daily Caller that will never happen.
SPLC’s Winter 2010 edition of its “Intelligence Report” magazine lists the Family Research Council as a hate group alongside the American Family Association, the Traditional Values Coalition, and 11 other social conservative groups.
The report, titled “18 Anti-Gay Groups and Their Propaganda,” also lists five other organizations as being anti-gay – such as Concerned Women for America and the National Organization for Marriage — but refrains from classifying them as hate groups.
“Labeling people and groups as hate groups is laying the groundwork to then charge them with hate crimes using the full force of government to oppress people for their beliefs,” said Concerned Women America President Wendy Wright.
Potok told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews SPLC chose to add the FRC to its list of hate groups due to its claims that gay men molest children at higher rates than straight men, its insistence gay activists want to eliminate age of consent laws, and due to comments FRC Senior Research Fellow Peter Sprigg made suggesting homosexual behavior should be recriminalized.
The Family Research Council and Concerned Women for America say the studies SPLC cites in its reports suffer from serious methodological errors and politically motivated biases.
The Bible explains that sex outside of marriage between a man and a woman is sin.
So why shoot only on homosexuals?
There seems to be a lot of double standards by men and woman that commit adultery, claim to be holy, but throw stones on homosexuals.
But let me be crystal clear. Homosexuality is branded in the Bible as a perversion.
I think that because the homosexual groups have been more vocal and visible in recent years we’ve seen more of a stance taken against it. It’s like anything else people feel strongly about. If drug use or violence or taxes increase folks will speak out if they are against it.
The Bible is crystal clear on adultery, fornication and homosexuality. The Bible is also crystal clear on how to be freed from these sins.
Dear Dave 1545.
The Bible do not rank sins. A sin is a sin. And if not repented for, it will lead to judgment.
There is not lot of sins in the Bible, that is branded as perversions. Homosexuality is.
Only the devil will present sin as a form of holiness. Like worship of idols. There are certain people, that shall not inherit the Kingdom of God.
“Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
