The 2010 Peter LaBarbera Hate Challenge

"The folly of the SPLC’s expanding 'hate' dragnet is that it threatens to engulf all religious/moral opposition to homosexuality. Indeed, it would be revealing to query the top 25 'GLBT' activist across the nation and ask them if they would also label, as Matt Barber pokes fun HERE, the following as 'hate groups': Family Research Council, AFA, the Roman Catholic Church, Focus on the Family, the Southern Baptist Convention and ADF. Wayne Besen, Evan Hurst, Joe Jervis, Jeremy Hooper, Rea Carey: take up the challenge!" - Peter LaBarbera, in his seventh consecutive post whining about being named a hate site by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Since you asked, Petey, yes, I do consider your named groups to be hate-centered. Therefore I accept your challenge to help you expand the SPLC's list. It's clear that you want more company on that list in order to take the sting out of your having been singled-out, so let's try to make the hurt go away. In alphabetical order and just off the top of my mind, here are some asshat groups whose campaigns of oppression and hate are just as evil as yours.

The 2010 Peter LaBarbera Hate Challenge!

The following evil and hate-filled organizations devote a large amount of their time and resources to thwarting the civil rights of LGBT people in the United States. They do this through lies, slander, buying politicians, and the demonizing of LGBT Americans in the public's mind.

Alliance Defense Fund
American Family Association
Americans For Prosperity
Catholic League
Center For Military Readiness
Christian Coalition
Concerned Women For America
Eagle Forum
Exodus International
Family Policy Network
Family Research Council
Family Research Institute*
Focus On The Family
Heritage Foundation
Illinois Family Institute
Maine Family Policy Council
Morality In Media
National Organization For Marriage
Parents & Friends Of Ex-Gays
Parents Television Council
Protect Marriage
Liberty Counsel
Repent America
Republican National Committee

(*Already listed by SPLC.)

I'm sure I've made a few glaring omissions for this list. Readers, feel free to suggest others.
