This was interesting- the SPLC lists Christian organizations that condemn homosexuality as a hate group-but leaves out Islamic groups with the same views from the list-
BTW- I am Christian and do not believe homosexuality to be a sin- I am just interested in why one group is included and another is not- also- do you think the "think tanks" included on this list are hate groups- what defines a hate group?

I was wondering the same think Kristi was--if the reason for the apparent disparity is that some groups actively work to prevent those they "hate" from having the same rights, or are more outspoken in the public arena.

From what I read, the SPLC identifies groups either as victims or as hate groups. American Muslims have been targeted in this country, being blamed for the foreign extremists who attacked on 9/11. I think the SPLC didn't include them in the count because they have been victims, even if they denounce homosexuality. Another difference might be that they are not trying to enact legislation against homosexuals. It might be that the other groups--the Christian groups--are very vocal, publicly, and actively working to prevent homosexuals from having the same rights as heterosexuals.
