Cornell Law Professor Rebukes SPLC

"The SPLC is very, very close to its "jump the shark" moment. They're close to going out of bounds."~ comment at Legal Insurrection website 

Does taking the position that “Gays and Lesbians have a right to live as they choose ... [but] they don’t have the right to redefine marriage for all of us,” really constitute hate speech? Why does SPLC devote a paragraph to someone who used NOM's name even though he had no affiliation? . . . SPLC's current management has done extensive damage to the real fight against hate groups by conflating political opponents with violent extremists, by using the hate group and similar lists against mainstream conservative groups and individuals, and by using its past reputation to shape the political landscape.

Hopefully, with time the public will become aware that SPLC is not what it once was.
