Today I found an internet article by Michael Weinstein where he viciously attacks Christians with the most vile hate filled and bigoted comments I have ever seen. I have included my appeal to the Southern Poverty Law Center to classify him and his organization MRFF as a Hate Group. I will further be looking to contact the Department of Defense and ask them if he is indeed a consultant for them.

“I am inquiring to see if your organization is a politically motivated organization or if you are an organization that will categorize all groups as hate groups if they meet your qualifications. One such group in particular is the MRFF headed by Michael Weinstein. Recently he wrote this article that is full of comments that meet your requirements. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/michael-l-weinstein/fundamentalist-christian-_b_3072651.html
Here are just a few samples of your definition of a hate group which is defined as “All hate groups have beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics.”
“Today, we face incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation’s armed forces.”
“Queasy with the bright and promising lights of the cultural realities of the present day, those evil, fundamentalist Christian creatures and their spiritual heirs have taken refuge behind flimsy, well-worn, gauze-like euphemistic facades such as “family values” and “religious liberty.” These bandits coagulate their stenchful substances in organizations such as the American Family Association
(AFA), the ultra-fundamentalist Family Research Council
(FRC), and the Chaplains Alliance for Religious Liberty
“But we are compelled to venture even further. We MUST vigorously support the continuing efforts to expose pathologically anti-gay, Islamophobic, and rabidly intolerant agitators for what they are: die-hard enemies of the United States Constitution. Monsters, one and all. “
I believe if the SPLC is to maintain their credibility they must immediately place MRFF and Michael Weinstine on your list of Hate Groups.” end of email.
