With millions of Americans unemployed or forced to shutter their businesses, charitable organizations are becoming even more vital. Through their “Smile” program, Amazon allows customers to give small amounts to charities as part of their orders.
But the tech giant relies on the progressive Southern Poverty Law Center to determine which charities are worthy of their support. But the SPLC isn’t a neutral arbiter: it’s a left-wing smear factory—labeling many Christian charities as “hate groups.”

The parents of three female track athletes are now suing in federal court—charging that allowing biological males to compete as females destroys the very idea of female athletic competition.
The attorney with the Alliance Defending Freedom said, “Forcing girls to be spectators in their own sports is completely at odds with Title IX, a federal law designed to create equal opportunities for women in education and athletics. Connecticut’s policy violates that law and reverses nearly 50 years of advances for women.”
Well, that’s an inevitable collision.
The current policy is an attempt to try to posit moral autonomy—one’s stated or claimed gender identity—over biological, creational reality.Read More »
