https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/may/16/southern-poverty-law-center-tech-industry-alliance/ My response on facebook As a long-time customer and a minor seller on amazon, I have almost always been pleased with the association. However, a recent affiliation of amazon has me greatly troubled. That is the recently-established relationship reported in the press of amazon and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). SPLC has done fine work in the past with their dealings with the neo-Nazis and genuine White supremacists, and the severe damage they have done to the KKK is something that I sincerely admire. However, their current activities concern me greatly. Their labeling of Christian groups as hate groups because of their support of traditional marriage is one example. Here, I refer to the Family Research Council, among others, And it should be noted that I loathe the Phelps group in Kansas and I do consider them a hate group. Please reconsider your association with SPLC. I ask you to find another group that is more judicious in applying the label of 'hate' to those with whom they have merely political differences. I make no definitive claim as to numbers but I am certain that many others besides me, would greatly appreciate your reconsidering any relationship with SPLC.
