Amazon Serves Harsh Blow To Christian Non-Profit Group That Defends Religious Freedoms
Amazon Smile program allows customers to help benefit the charities of their choice through their purchases. That is unless your ‘charity of choice’ happens to be Alliance Defending Freedom. ADF was just dropped by Amazon as a charity option and Christian consumers are in the dark as to why.
“Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve received many calls, emails, and Facebook messages with a major concern: Our Ministry Friends were no longer able to give to Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) through the AmazonSmile program. In case you’re not familiar with it, AmazonSmile is a website that allows a customer to choose a nonprofit group to receive a percentage of any Amazon purchase.
Apparently, Amazon no longer sees ADF as a suitable nonprofit for its program. But why?
We contacted Amazon to find out what happened, and lo and behold, Amazon informed us that we were removed because the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) determines who is qualified.”
Yes, that SPLC. The one that exploits the terms “hate” and “hate group” against any organization it disagrees with.
Without actually saying it outright, does this mean that SPLC views the non-profit that defends religious freedoms a ‘hate group’? That is what it seems like.
The legal powerhouse, which fights for religious freedom, is awaiting decisions in two more landmark free speech cases it argued this term before the high court. It is counted as one of the most successful legal advocacy organizations in the country.
But even that stellar record was not enough to prevent Alliance Defending Freedom from being banned from participating in AmazonSmile, which allows Amazon.com customers to contribute “0.5% of eligible purchases” to “almost one million eligible 501(c)(3) public charitable organizations.”
ADF had been one of those charities since the 2013 launch of AmazonSmile until recently, when those who had assigned the legal organization as their charity were notified that it was no longer eligible.
