What's the best way to silence someone in America today? Call them a bigot or label them a "hate group." That's basically the worst social crime you could commit in our society.
Now, certainly, there are real bigots and legitimate hate groups, and they should be opposed. But are Christians now to be considered a hate group because of the verses in the Bible condemning homosexuality? That's what Apple and J.P. Morgan Chase want the public to think, shares Fox News.
The two corporate giants have recently given huge sums to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a group that is ranking in millions by labeling "hate groups." On this list are reputable Christian ministries that have publicly taken stands for traditional marriage. In a passionate Facebook post, Franklin Graham outs these mega-enterprises bent on silencing Christians.
Fox News breaks it down plainly, "Let’s not mince words: By funding this list, J.P. Morgan and Apple are saying they support labeling Christian organizations that oppose gay marriage as 'hate groups.' That may come as a sour revelation to any bank customers who have donated to the Family Research Council (a mainstream Christian outfit on the SPLC’s list) or whose rights are protected by the Alliance Defending Freedom (which litigates for religious freedom and is also on the list)."
Fox also explains how not only has Apple donated a huge sum to help "fight hate," they are encouraging their employees to do so as well. "Apple CEO Tim Cook informed employees that his company is giving $1 million to SPLC and matching employee donations. J.P. Morgan Chase is pitching in $500,000, specifically to further the SPLC’s 'work in tracking, exposing and fighting hate groups and other extremist organizations,' in the words of Peter Scher, the bank’s head of corporate responsibility."
What do you think of the SPLC's agenda to label Christian groups as "hate groups" and of Apple and J.P. Morgan Chase's funding of it? Share your thoughts in the comments! Thank you!
