The Intelligence Project has assessed the following web sites as
either anti-gay or Christian Identity hate sites
"Anti-gay" web sites listed by the Intelligence Project:
All of the anti-gay sites listed appear to be fundamentalist Christian in
belief. The Southern Poverty Law Center lists 19 of them. However most
are sponsored by the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, KS.
Active "Christian Identity" web sites listed by the Intelligence Project:
A brief quotation from Page 2 of Adam's Bible gives a flavor of the
hatred and loathing found in much of the Christian Identity movement:
"I warn all of those who are blinded by birth and are therefore not of
Adam's purest and unadulterated white Northern European flesh, do not turn
this page one hair's breadth. This is a vision penned by God, which was
meant only to be read and heeded by the blessed White Men and Women of this
world, who are The Holy Race of God. All other races are of their Father,
the Devil, and they are not meant to read The Holy Book for they are damned
from birth." 2
The average life of a Christian Identity website
appears to be measured in months. Many of the websites listed by the
Intelligence Project in their 2008-Spring report were already offline by
