Just on the heels of Politico's blockbuster expose of the radical Southern Poverty Law Center, Tucker Carlson of the Fox News Channel hosted the Family Research Channel's Tony Perkins to talk about the SPLC's highly questionable tactics in labeling Christian and pro-family organizations as 'hate groups' – many appearing on the SPLC's ridiculous (but dangerous) hate map right alongside actual haters such as the KKK and the Neo-Nazis.
Did you know that James T. Hodgkinson, the shooter who targeted Republicans at a congressional baseball game practice and nearly killed Congressman Steve Scalise (R-La.), gave moral support to the Southern Poverty Law Center? The SPLC had repeatedly attacked Scalise, along with former presidential candidate Ben Carson and women's right activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
Watch Carlson and Perkins dismantle what’s fast becoming not only the largest hate group in America but also the most egregious purveyor of dangerous Fake News in the world today – the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Here's a video from a few years ago that’s become very timely again. During one of the late Father Nicholas Gruner's Fatima conferences, Chris Ferrara interviewed Michael J. Matt on:
- The Southern Poverty Law Center
- The Coming Persecution of Christians
- Fatima's Consecration of Russia
- Christophobia and the Demonic War against God and the Catholic Church
In his full-length address at a conference at which Ron Paul was the keynote speaker, Michael Matt defends Catholics against the ludicrous charge of anti-Semitism, exposing the ignorance of history, scripture and theology on the part of the Southern Poverty Law Center and other far-Left Christophobes
(American Family Association) This week, CNN listed the American Family Association as a "hate group" in a sham news article that could easily incite violence and place AFA employees and supporters in harm's way. CNN has since issued a correction and removed AFA by name off their website. Instead, CNN links to the Southern Poverty Law Center website which falsely lists AFA as a "hate group."
AFA is urging CNN to stop using the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as a source when reporting real news. The SPLC is a radical organization and its hateful rhetoric was implicated in a 2012 shooting at the Family Research Council's headquarters in Washington, D.C..
By citing the SPLC, CNN underscores why many Americans don't trust it for honest reporting. The SPLC has been widely discredited over the years because of its false labeling of Christian organizations as "hate groups." In fact, even the liberal Obama Department of Justice quietly reprimanded SPLC and its attorneys because their conduct "overstepped the bounds of zealous advocacy and was unprofessional."
Many remember when the SPLC placed world renowned neurosurgeon, Dr. Ben Carson, on an "extremist" watch list. Why did they do this? Because Dr. Carson believes that marriage is between one man and one woman. READ MORE HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: While The Remnant denounces and condemns all actual hate groups (such as the Neo-Nazis, the KKK and the SPLC), we call upon all pro-life, pro-family, pro-Christian organizations targeted by the SPLC to unite against these dangerous purveyors of Fake News here in the country we all love. We support the AFA's call for justice, and we encourage our readers to sign the AFA petition to CNN, urging that network to stop using the Southern Poverty Law Center as a resource.
If Christians do not stand up for themselves against this orchestrated and Christophobic witch hunt, nobody will.
‘Leader’ of One of Minnesota’s ‘Active Hate Groups’
According to the Radically Liberal Southern Poverty Law Center
“Southern Poverty Law Center has been criticized in the past for having too broad a definition of hate.” (WCCO TV reporter, Heather Brown, August 14, 2017) So there’s your 2017 Understatement of the Year. But then why did WCCO TV rely on an obvious Fake News source to concoct a nothingburger story like this? Let us consider this textbook example of Fake News.
Last night, WCCO TV attempted to forge a link between white supremacists in Charlottesville, VA and—wait for it! —The Remnant. As the primary source for this “exposé”, WCCO reporter Heather Brown trotted out the 2006 Southern Poverty Law Center Intelligence Report on hate groups in America.
Amid protests from the usual suspects, the Trump Administration nixed $213M from Teen Pregnancy Prevention, all by itself. Here's how LifeSite says it went down:
President Donald Trump recently cut funding to a questionable teen pregnancy prevention program that has given millions of dollars to the abortion business Planned Parenthood.
The Hill reports pro-abortion President Barack Obama created the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program in 2010 to teach vulnerable populations of students about preventing pregnancy.
Participants in the program recently learned that their grant funding will end next year, two years sooner than expected, according to the report. Trump’s administration notified the 81 grant recipients that funding for the program is being cut by about $200 million and their grants will end on June 30, 2018, the report states.
Among the groups receiving grants to teach sex education are several Planned Parenthood affiliates.
The program administrators awarded an annual $1 million grant to Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and Hawaiian Islands to target rural teens.
The abortion group said it uses the funds to “reduce teen pregnancy rates, increase use of contraceptives and delay initiation of sexual activity among ninth- to 12th-grade youth in rural Washington, Idaho, Oregon, Utah and Hawaii.”
Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho, as well as Planned Parenthood of the Heartland also received grants of nearly $1 million each annually to promote their sex agenda to teens.
Health and Human Services Department spokesman Mark Vafiades told the New York Times that there is very little evidence that the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program is working.
Vafiades said the evidence of a positive impact is “very weak,” and the Trump administration wants to support a program that “provides youth with the information and skills they need to avoid the many risks associated with teen sex.”
Democrats and abortion activists are upset by the cuts, and are sending letters to HHS Secretary Tom Price in protest. Many speculate that the cuts could mean Trump’s administration will support abstinence-based programs instead…

REMNANT COMMENT: …
La Croix recently reported that women are assuming critical roles within multiple German diocese:
Fifteen years ago, Daniela Engelhard became the first woman to take overall responsibility for pastoral work in the Diocese of Osnabrück in north-west Germany. Today there are ten women holding similar positions in different German dioceses.
The German Bishops Conference (DBK) welcomed the fact that its target of 40% of women in posts as directors of pastoral work has been achieved, it said in a statement published on July 31.
At the moment, the 27 German dioceses now have a woman as the head of their pastoral work departments. The women are responsible for “multiple fields of pastoral work".
These include restructuring pastoral zones, accompanying couples and families but also emergency aid, migrant pastoral care as well as interreligious dialogue…
…Daniela Engelhard told La Croix that she strives to develop within the Church “new forms of more participative and community-based work” as well as “new ways of speaking about faith”. She believes in “turning our attention less towards the limitations than the opportunities".
Xavierian Sister Gudrun Steiss, who studied pastoral catechetics and interreligious dialogue at the Catholic Institute of Paris, is now director of pastoral work in Hamburg.
Her work priorities include studying “how administrative functions could better serve pastoral needs", improve “the culture of communication and decision making in the Diocese of Hamburg and in the German Church".
She also aims to turn “the relative wealth of the [German Church] into an opportunity".
Members of Bishops committees
All these women are also “members of the executive bodies of their dioceses and the bishops’ councils", the DBK said in its statement.
And “many of them also bring their theological and pastoral competence to one of the fourteen committees of the German Bishops Conference".
