Long Time, No SPLC


By Tony Perkins

In a clash with the Southern Poverty Law Center, Dr. Ben Carson took down the SPLC’s claims with almost surgical precision. The miserable excuse for a “civil rights” group launched a desperate attack against the conservative doctor for his biblical views. But it was Dr. Carson who had the last word. The news ignited a national firestorm, which heaped criticism on the SPLC and sparked even deeper doubts about the group’s legitimacy and credibility.

In an almost unprecedented move, SPLC caved under the heat and announced that it was removing Carson from its extremist “watch list.” The victory came just hours after we launched a “Stand with Ben Carson” petition, which was quickly signed by more than 20,000 people. Now that the radical group has crawled back into its hole, Dr. Carson is going on the offensive, calling out the organization for its own extremism.

“They were highlighted for the hypocrites and the bigots that they are,” he told a Palm Beach crowd. “Conservatives are the most compassionate people, because they’re the ones who expect people to work and to improve themselves, and to develop the talents God gave them so that they can partake of the American dream,” he said. “The people who are not compassionate are the ones who pat people on the heads and say, ‘There, there you poor thing. I’m going to give you health care and housing subsidies, and food stamps and everything you can imagine. You just sit down and relax and vote for me.’ …That is actually cruel and condescending because it creates a dependency in people.”

Tony Perkins is president of the Washington, D.C.-based Family Research Council. He is a former member of the Louisiana legislature where he served for eight years, and he is recognized as a legislative pioneer for authoring measures like the nation’s first Covenant Marriage law.

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
