Christian Ministry Sues Southern Poverty Law Center



By Steve Byas - Posted at The New American:

“These false and illegal characterizations have a chilling effect on the free exercise of religion and on religious free speech for all people of faith.”

“We embarked today on a journey to right a terrible wrong,” said Dr. Frank Wright, president and CEO of the D. James Kennedy Ministries (DJKM), in announcing the filing of a defamation and religious discrimination lawsuit against the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). SPLC has listed DJKM and other conservative and Christian organizations as "anti-LGBT hate groups."

Included in the lawsuit are complaints against Amazon, for keeping DJKM off its charity donation program, AmazonSmile, and the charity rating organization Guide Star.

“Those who knowingly label Christian ministries as ‘hate’ groups, solely for subscribing to the historic Christian faith, are either woefully uninformed or willfully deceitful," stated Wright. "In the case of the Southern Poverty Law Center,” he concluded, “our lawsuit alleges the latter.”

Wright explained why DJKM felt it necessary to file the suit, stating: “These false and illegal characterizations have a chilling effect on the free exercise of religion and on religious free speech for all people of faith.”
