“Merry Christmas” Makes the SPLC’s Hate List

Dec 27, 2017

Read our second press release with additional information about how the SPLC has changed their page since this article was released and continues to manipulate the information they claim to provide. 

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) was caught "monitoring hate" by tracking its 12 top most hateful hashtags, which included: #merrychristmas, which ranks number two, #christmas at number three, #christmaseve at number five, #jesus at number eight, and #merrychristmaseve in the last slot. The SPLC is willing to lump anyone who says “Merry Christmas” or “Jesus” in with the most violent and racist groups in America. This is one more way that the SPLC is exposing its own radical, discredited, anti-Christian hate. View a snapshot of the tracker or visit its page now.

The SPLC’s idea that “Merry Christmas” is a hateful, violent slur shows how far out of touch it is from reality. When the SPLC confuses a cheerful “Merry Christmas” with an obscenity-laced rant threatening harm to a group of people, it loses all credibility.

This is one of the SPLC’s many wide generalizations. It then seeks to harm those within its self-proclaimed classification of others. In a similar manner, the SPLC targets anyone who disagrees with them on conservative, political or social issues. Then it claims civil disagreement as "evidence" for falsely classifying a peaceful organization as "hateful." Liberty Counsel has compiled a comprehensive answer to SPLC’s false name-calling of its non-profit Christian ministry and its pro bono work in the legal field.

Liberty Counsel exists to help other people; we are a pro bono non-profit organization. We believe that every person is created in the image of God and should be treated with dignity and respect.
