Southern Poverty Law Center Adds Seven More Anti-Gay Organizations To List Of Active Hate Groups

A so-called “think tank” that until very recently was funded by and listed as a project of the National Organization For Marriage (NOM) has just been labeled an active anti-gay hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The Ruth Institute, whose motto is “making marriage cool,” is headed by Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse (image) and is based in California. On November 1, 2013, NOM announced the Ruth Institute would no longer be associated with the virulently anti-gay organization. Today, the Southern Poverty Law Center added the Ruth Institute to its growing list of active anti-gay hate groups.

“The National Organization for Marriage Education Fund is happy to announce that the Ruth Institute will be running as an independent organization effective November 1, 2013,” a terse posting on NOM’s website read.

No reason was given at the time of the “divorce,” although NOM’s financial struggles came to light just weeks later, including that it was operating at a deficit of over $1 million.

GLAAD, which hosts a lengthy list of her anti-gay commentary, notes that Dr. Roback Morse:

Teaches that gays are to remain celibate; has admitted that this is what she wants churches to teach; says gay people are to only have “chaste friendships”

– Says that “the parallels” between Nazi Germany and contemporary America “are really quite chilling” and what happened in Nazi Germany “is happening to us.” (0:18-0:35)

– Claims that if marriage equality becomes legal, “Fathers will be marginalized. They will be considered non-essential.”

– Despite polls that prove otherwise, says Catholics don’t really “accept the category of gayness.” (0:38–0:45)

– Says being gay is a “completely shameless activity.” (0:20–0:27)

– Has called marriage equality for same-sex couples “a hostile takeover of the whole civil society” (9:35–9:44)

While no formal announcement has yet been made, the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Mark Potok, a Senior Fellow and Editor of Intelligence Report, and Heidi Beirich, head of the SPLC’s Intelligence Project, noted the addition of the Ruth Institute, and the Pacific Justice Institute — for its anti-transgender attacks – today via a conference call with reporters.

While not mentioned on the call, other anti-gay organizations have also been added to the SPLC’s list of active anti-gay hate groups. Among them, the infamous Liberty Counsel, which has been increasing its public profile lately, and the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM).

A total of seven more anti-gay organizations have been added to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s list of active anti-gay hate groups.

Ha ha!! Yes! Finally! Morse's reaction could be one of two things: either she cries about being persecuted or she never hears about it because she still has her noise-cancelling headphones on!

That Nazi whore earned it and NOM is next.

take a look at NOM eg how Brian Brown along with that nutcase Scott Lively who claims hitler and his gang were all gay, has been in russia with lively, met putin etc

Any way we can arest him as a traitor? BTW Lively has been indicted by a federal court re his supporting the Uganda bill. The direct death penalty is gone but how long do you think that a gay person would live in a place like uganda filled with Islamic influence eg remember the Entebbe airport scene with Edi Amin.

We need a way to take brown and his close associates off the street

Also – He was a quaker and most of those people are the absolute opposite of this hate filled piece of crap. IMO he's a fixed gay – he's catholic and htey have a shadowy fix gay group called regenerration

Met 3 of those victime of that fix thing – two told me that matthew shepards parents should have fixed him

the other said the same and also said gays support the westboro bapptst because is brings them sympathy

All this discredited crap does is drive the victim so far into the closet of self hatred they become a pathological liar. the hared has to come out somewhere eg the examples I gave.

its kind of funny how they make up all these things, to make us look bad, but when proven wrong, they either start cussing at you telling you you are going to hell, or they just stop commenting. I saw a comment on a page, that really pissed me off, some Woman said " and gay people support pedos, and want to help them to to make it legal to be pedos" I went off she was arguing back and forth with some others, until i went off on her, she stopped commenting on the thread, i told her "You are WRONG, I know myself and many other people in the LGBT community, would love nothing more than to kick those kind of peoples A$$" and then I told her to STOP spreading her lies, and making this shit up.

BTW why did they put Maggie the female dog on the sidelnes – its well known that her traditioonal marriage included 2 illegitmate children

Maggie hon, you can run but you cant hide/

No, Maggie's got a finely honed instinct for self-preservation: she bailed just before the organization started to tank.
