Southern Poverty Law Center still lists Family Research Council as a hate group. I’m against icing political speech by holding such a list responsible for the actions of crazy criminals.
But then, I’m not one of those who was sure Sarah Palin’s crosshairs were responsible for the shooting of a Democratic Congresswoman and the deaths of six staff and constituents, despite copious evidence to the contrary— like, that the shooter had never seen the Palin map and was demonstrably not motivated by partisan politics.
That crowd is awfully quiet about the influence SPLC’s dubious list might have on the future unbalanced. Curious, that.
