SPLC Suffers Stunning Defeat...Fight Continues

Jul 9, 2019

I have extremely good news to share with you. It shows what happens when you and I charge forward to fight the enemies of faith and freedom in America. Thanks to your support and prayers, we just won a remarkable victory against the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)—the radical group waging a legal assault intended to destroy Liberty Counsel...and me, personally.

But there's a shadow on this good news. While a federal judge dismissed the Southern Poverty Law Center’s legal attack in Virginia, our legal face-off against the SPLC continues in Vermont.

In fact, it's heating up—and costs are mounting. That's why I'm asking you to prayerfully consider a gift now. Take advantage of the $100,000 Liberty Challenge today to effectively DOUBLE the impact of your gift.

Learn more below about the SPLC's stunning defeat...and the SPLC's ongoing campaign to destroy Liberty Counsel and believers like you and me -Mat

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a dangerous group intent on destroying this ministry, has unleashed a legal attack against Liberty Counsel and me personally. To put it plainly...

The SPLC is out for blood and they want to destroy us!

But just last month, a federal judge in Virginia heard our arguments and threw out the SPLC's lawsuit in that state against Liberty Counsel and me, personally.

That's a slam dunk for our side—and friends like you helped make it possible. But we're still fighting the SPLC in Vermont. The battle there is grueling, exceedingly time-consuming and expensive because of the SPLC's very broad discovery requests.

That's why I invite you to stand with Liberty Counsel now.

We CANNOT give ground to the SPLC now. The stakes are too high. Here's why...

+ + The SPLC is gunning for Liberty Counsel...and you!

The SPLC is notorious for its strategic and systematic campaigns to "tar and feather" groups like Liberty Counsel with the "hate group" label.

In large part due to the SPLC, we have been forced to fight actions against Amazon, GuideStar, social media and others that have used the SPLC's "fake hate" propaganda to censor or ban pro-faith groups.

But with this federal lawsuit in Vermont, the SPLC is taking its attacks to a whole new level.

With the Vermont lawsuit, the SPLC is sending notice that any individual or organization that opposes the radical LGBT and anti-faith agenda will be punished or even destroyed.

This is a battle for the right of law-abiding citizens to defend Judeo-Christian values without the threat of punitive lawsuits designed to cripple or destroy them!

But we are mounting a rigorous defense in order to defeat this baseless filing. This lawsuit is not only costing us a great deal of money and time due to extensive "discovery" requests.

But this SPLC-led lawsuit seeks punitive damages at a level that—if the SPLC succeeds—would create a serious financial crisis for Liberty Counsel...and threaten our very existence!

That's why I'm turning to you for help.

+ + We must fight back against this coordinated SPLC attack!

Liberty Counsel is fighting the SPLC at a very challenging time! My legal team, as well as our budget, are already stretched by many critical cases.

Right now, my team is gearing up for the next chapter of a major showdown in our case defending Sandra Merritt against the California Attorney General and the Planned Parenthood cabal.

Next week, our attorneys will go into federal court in California in a pivotal "motions for summary judgment" hearing. And a two-week preliminary hearing in the criminal case against Sandra comes up in September.

Add to that the hundreds of other cases and legal situations that we must continue to fund.

All while fighting the ultra-wealthy SPLC—with its endowment of nearly half a billion dollars.

Based on this challenge and our ongoing efforts, Liberty Counsel urgently needs your generous support now.

Would you prayerfully consider making a special gift to help Liberty Counsel push back against the SPLC's outrageous attack while we defend people of faith in courtrooms across America?

Your gift now will be effectively doubled, thanks to the $100,000 Liberty Challenge for our on-line supporters.

We are not intimidated and we will not be stopped from accomplishing our ongoing mission to restore the culture. It is a blessing knowing that you are standing with us.

Thank you so much for your financial and prayer support. As we engage in these battles, it is encouraging to know you are with us. Together, we can make a difference and defend freedom!

God bless you!

Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman
Liberty Counsel

P.S. I humbly ask you to give generously to help us fight back against the SPLC and defend freedom, life and family in America!
