Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a Christian legal organization that promotes life, marriage and religious liberty, has been removed from the "AmazonSmile" charitable giving program after being designated a "hate group" by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
AmazonSmile is a program that allows users to choose a nonprofit foundation to receive a small percentage of their Amazon purchases. ADF has been part of the program since its inception in 2013.
Recently, however, the group said it was told that this was no longer the case, due to the SPLC's designation of the group as an "Anti-LGBT" extremist group.
Alliance Defending Freedom, which has won hundreds of legal victories, including seven cases at the Supreme Court, focuses on "defending religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family."
