America’s favorite wannabe Constitutional Scholar, Kim Davis’ lawyers are a little bit upset over the Associated Press reporting on the Southern Poverty Law Center labeling them as a hate group. Why would the SPLC do such a thing?
Well because it’s true.
We are facing the survival of western values, western civilization. … One of the most significant threats to our freedom is in the area of sexual anarchy with the agenda of the homosexual movement, the so-called LGBT movement. It does several things, first of all it undermines family and the very first building block of our society, but secondly, it’s a zero sum game as well and it’s a direct assault on our religious freedom and freedom of speech.
The statement was made by current Liberty Counsel Director, Mat Staver. One can even find the near laughable rhetoric on their website.
No civil institution, including any court, has authority to redefine marriage any more than it can redefine gravity. Redefining the institution of marriage is improper and outside the authority of the government.
It looks as if the Liberty Counsel also failed Introduction To Constitutional Law, as the government has full authority of defining what is a legal marriage. While searching their website I did not see them denounce Deuteronomy 22:28-29 which states that a woman must marry her rapist. The United States government has yet to pass any laws stating who a woman must marry in a given circumstance.
It would be surprising if Liberty Counsel was not the same group that lied about the extent of Kim Davis’ meeting with Pope Francis:
According to Davis’s lawyer, Mat Staver, the meeting came “from the Vatican itself”—which reads as his deceptive way of saying, “Pope Francis didn’t actually invite Davis to the embassy, but someone with Vatican connections did, so we’re going to keep saying Vatican over and over until enough people think the Holy Father actually invited our client to meet him.”
Brandon Ambrosino furthers his claim with the damning:
The inconsistencies with the Liberty Counsel’s story were infuriatingly apparent from go. For example, Staver told CBS that Francis definitely knew who Kim Davis was, before their meeting: “Pope Francis,” he said, “has been following the story of Kim Davis and obviously is very concerned about religious liberty, not just in the United States, but worldwide.” But in an interview with Time, Staver said that he didn’t know if Francis knew who his client was, but he assumed the pope had heard of her because “her story has been published worldwide.”
The Vatican quickly realized they had to weigh in. Admitting that Francis had some brief encounter with Davis, the statement from the Holy See’s press office made clear that the meeting “should not be considered a form of support” for Davis’s refusal to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Moreover, the Vatican didn’t even consider Davis a “real audience,” saying she was just one of dozens paraded in front of the pontiff at the Vatican embassy.
The Liberty Counsel didn’t back down at all. They argued that Pope Francis made clear in an interview that he does in fact support their client by virtue of the fact that he supports conscientious objection.
Not only did the Liberty Counsel lie, they doubled down on the lie when caught. That’s mighty Christian of them.
Which makes you wonder why Staver who makes this claim about allowing gay Scout leaders in the Boy Scouts of America, “You are going to have all kinds of sexual molestation. This is a playground for pedophiles to go and have all these boys as objects of their lust,” is surprised his organization is labeled as a hate group which has become marginalized by their own lies.

The irony that they would use the world “discredited” after only those on the fringes of society that feel the Constitution has no place in the United States Of America take them seriously. While they throw their tantrum, let’s reflect on how much hate the Liberty Counsel has shown the gay citizens of our country since their inception.
Whether they like it our not, the Liberty Counsel is nothing more than a pathetic hate group that do not believe their fellow citizens should have the same ability to marry a consenting adult as they have.
