A lot happened in the past year.

We cheered on Team USA at the 2018 Winter Olympics. We said goodbye to two great men: Billy Graham and Rev. H.B. London. President Donald Trump nominated (and the Senate confirmed) a new Supreme Court justice. The President also announced the creation of the White House Faith and Opportunity Initiative and reinstated regulations that keep Title X funding from going toward abortions. Sarah Huckabee Sanders was kicked out of a restaurant. And Planned Parenthood named a new president.

Alliance Defending Freedom had a busy year as well. Most notably, ADF won two cases at the U.S. Supreme Court, Masterpiece Cakeshop and National Institute of Family and Life Advocates. We have also asked the Court to hear two more ADF cases.

And this is only a small fraction of the events that took place this year.

Let’s take a look back and revisit the top five most-read ADF blog posts of 2018.

No. 2 – When Will the Southern Poverty Law Center Learn Its Lesson?

Rather than addressing the merits of a person’s or organization’s views, SPLC prefers to advance its ideological agenda by name-calling. It attacks organizations and people who disagree with its far-left views and has declared that its aim is to destroy them. But its bullying and intimidation tactics will ultimately fail.
