Columnist Matt Barber, who is affiliated with the Liberty Counsel Action advocacy organization, told WND he has predicted such violence would be inflicted on Christian organizations if left-leaning groups such as the SPLC continue to spread labels such as “hate group.”
“I want to formally call on the SPLC to retract its reckless hate-group smear of Christian organizations like the Family Research Council,” he said. “This was intended to dehumanize Christian organizations and smear as hate the biblical view of sexual morality.
“I pointed this out months ago in a column I wrote for WND, titled ‘Liberal Violence Rising,‘ where I basically predicted this sort of thing.”
He said the danger is when “less-than-stable, left-wing extremists” share the view of the SPLC and say, “a hate group is just like the KKK. I’m a hero if I go and take out a bunch of folks.”
