The SPLC is seeking the removal of Alabama’s chief justice for flouting rule of law, refusing to recognize supremacy of U.S. Supreme Court in same-sex marriage case.

In a letter to SPLC officials, the American Family Association (AFA) has disavowed a series of racist and bigoted statements made by its chief spokesman in recent years. The SPLC called the group’s effort a “shell game.”

In defying federal judiciary, Alabama chief justice is confusing his personal religious beliefs with his duty to uphold both state and federal law, including the U.S. Constitution.

The SPLC today filed a judicial ethics complaint against Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore over his public statements urging the governor and Alabama judges to defy federal law and enforce Alabama’s ban on same-sex marriages.

A federal judge’s ruling striking down Alabama’s same-sex marriage ban as unconstitutional will provide greater stability to the lives of same-sex couples and their children, but more work remains to eliminate anti-LGBT discrimination in the state.

The SPLC has urged the 168 members of the Republican National Committee not to participate in a weeklong, all-expenses-paid trip to Israel sponsored by the American Family Association and the American Renewal Project.  

The SPLC is observing TDOR to honor the lives lost to hate crimes and is fighting for the rights of transgender Americans; people like Ashley Diamond, a 34-year-old African-American woman currently incarcerated in a men’s prison in Georgia.

The head of the GOP surprisingly invoked the names of anti-LGBT extremists as he defended his party’s opposition to same-sex marriage.

The LGBT community and Muslims were among those demonized at the weekend political conference that attracted several possible presidential candidates.

The SPLC and a coalition of civil rights groups today published an open letter asking the GOP to take a stand against the anti-LGBT bigotry of groups sponsoring this week’s Values Voter Summit.
