NOM and Porno Pete join the anti-SPLC chorus (a cappella)

National Organization for Marriage and Americans for Truth About Homosexuality have both issued statements today regarding the Southern Poverty Law Center. AFTAH is listed by SPLC as an anti-gay hate group while NOM is not.

That hasn't stopped NOM's Thomas Peters from yelling ACTION: Tell SPLC to Take Down the "Hate Map" Used by FRC Shooter to Target Victims. According to Peters:
The Family Research Council shooter, Floyd Lee Corkins II, on Wednesday pleaded guilty to charges that include assault with intent to kill and committing an act of terrorism.

Shockingly enough, Corkins told FBI agents that he chose FRC as a target based on the liberal Southern Poverty Law Center’s “hate map.”
This is all pretty moronic. Mr. Peters must presuppose that his constituency is as devoid of critical thinking as he is. How's this for an idea; Action: Tell Tony Perkins and Family Research Council to stop suggesting that gay men are predisposed to molest children and to stop saying that gay people "recruit" children!

SPLC correctly identifies Family Research Council as an anti-gay hate group     and for good cause. The fact that some whack job shot someone at FRC doesn't give FRC a pass. Since FRC was listed as a hate group, the organization has done nothing to moderate their vitriol.
