Several months ago, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) agreed to pay a $3.375 million settlement as the result of a demand from an Islamic reformer and his foundation for being included in the SPLC's now-defunct "anti-Muslim extremists" list published in December 2016.
The settlement is tangible proof that the SPLC, which amounts to little more than a leftist instrument of political warfare against those with whom it disagrees, fully deserves the infamy of it's discredited status.
In spite of the SPLC's malicious labeling being discredited and penalized by the courts, the radical leftist organization has doubled down in their lawsuit against Liberty Counsel and me, placing us both in the crosshairs of a vicious attack campaign.
I have been sharing with you about the legal attack on Liberty Counsel and me personally that is backed by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
This is part of the LGBTQ agenda to discredit and even destroy Liberty Counsel so we will be weakened in our efforts to defend people of faith who are coming under attack. This isn't just about winning a "court battle." This is personal and the goal is to tar and feather me and Liberty Counsel itself.
I want you to have a very clear update on the legal threat to both Liberty Counsel and me personally that is coming from the LGBTQ community backed by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

I have been sharing with you about a serious threat to Liberty Counsel. We recently were notified that Liberty Counsel was named in a new legal action backed by leaders of the radical LGBTQ agenda, including the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). They are also suing me, personally.
Why are these LGBTQ activists attacking Liberty Counsel, as well as me? The answer is simple...

Yesterday, I shared with you about a serious attack on our liberties in the form of a new lawsuit against Liberty Counsel filed by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
As we have documented, the SPLC is a dangerous organization intent on damaging and even destroying this ministry. The SPLC falsely labeled Liberty Counsel and other pro-family groups as "hate" groups because we disagreed with their LGBT agenda. Now, they have launched a major new lawsuit that takes their baseless attacks to a whole new level with the clear goal of destroying Liberty Counsel.
But that's just the half of it.

I am coming to you with an urgent need that, prayerfully, I will be able to meet in the next 48 hours.
Founder and Chairman
We've exposed an extensive scheme between Planned Parenthood and Xavier Becerra, California's current Attorney General, and Kamala Harris, California's former Attorney General. Harris is now a member of the U.S. Senate and serves on the Judiciary Committee. Their target was and continues to be Sandra "Susan" Merritt, our client who helped expose Planned Parenthood's role in the trafficking of aborted baby body parts.
Today, please consider a special gift to Liberty Counsel as we fight against Planned Parenthood and their political cronies and beneficiaries. See my prior message below for more details — Mat.
