Family Research Council Banned From AmazonSmile

The Christian Post reports:

Amazon has banned another conservative nonprofit from its AmazonSmile program, which allows customers to choose a charity to receive proceeds from their purchases.

The tech giant’s decision to ban the Family Research Council was reportedly based on recommendations from the Southern Poverty Law Center, the program’s gatekeeper, which frequently labels conservative and Christian organizations as “hate groups.”

The Scottsdale, Arizona-based Christian legal firm Alliance Defending Freedom was banned in 2018 after SPLC labeled it as a hate group due to its biblical views on sexuality. At “the urging of Amazon’s board of directors,” shareholders recently defeated a resolution that would have ended the use of the SPLC’s defamatory list.

Liberty Counsel and others are already banned.
