The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom President, CEO, and General Counsel Michael Farris regarding a letter he e-mailed to Amazon Thursday regarding the company’s reliance on the Southern Poverty Law Center to remove ADF as a charitable organization in the AmazonSmile program:

“To justify removing ADF from the AmazonSmile program, Amazon is hiding behind the Southern Poverty Law Center, a discredited fundraising group that fills its ever-increasing coffers by attacking veterans, Catholics, Muslims who oppose terrorism, and even nuns. SPLC is not a neutral watchdog organization. Instead, it raises money by slandering people and organizations who disagree with its views. ADF is one of the nation’s most respected and successful Supreme Court advocates, working to preserve our fundamental freedoms of speech, religion, and conscience for people from all walks of life. We would welcome the opportunity to meet with Amazon representatives to explain why they shouldn’t exclude us from the AmazonSmile program.”
Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
