The Southern Poverty Law Center, which has labeled several Washington, D.C.-based family organizations as "hate groups" for favoring traditional marriage, has been dumped as a "resource" on the FBI's Hate Crime Web page, a significant rejection of the influential legal group.Of course, just because there's no link on the FBI website, that doesn't mean the feds and the SPLC haters are not still in each other's back pockets... They still probably exchange info, but even this tiny hit on the SPLC's credibility is a step, albeit a tiny one, in the right direction.
The Web page scrubbing, which also included eliminating the Anti-Defamation League, was not announced and came in the last month after 15 family groups pressed Attorney General Eric Holder and FBI Director James Comey to stop endorsing a group -- SPLC -- that inspired a recent case of domestic terrorism at the Family Research Council.
