What is a hate group?

Deciding whether a particular group is a "hate group" is a bit of a moving target. It changes with time.

Take marriage in the U.S. as an example. A few decades ago the concept of same-sex marriage was rarely discussed. Probably most adults in the U.S. had never really thought much -- if at all -- about it. Then, on Monday, 1990-DEC-17, three same-sex couples each applied for marriage licenses from the State of Hawaii. 1 About four months later, the Hawaii Department of Health finally refused their request, This set in motion a one-generation long chain of events that culminated on 2015-JUN-27. A ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court on that date legalized same-sex marriages across the entire United States, except for American Samoa. 2

When a given government policy like:

becomes opposed by most Americans in favor of equal rights and/or acceptance, then some people will classify those groups that want to retain the discriminatory policies as hate groups. So, for example, some people do not currently consider the Ruth Institute to be a hate group because the group supports opposite-site marriage or supports the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. However, they may consider the Institute as a hate group because they want to deny marriage to same-sex couples, in opposition to almost two out of three U.S. adults who favor marriage equality.

The Intelligence Project of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) monitors individuals and group who discriminate against people seeking equality. It has designated the Ruth Institute to be a hate group. 2

The SPLC has also assessed the web sites listed below as U.S. hate organizations.

We suspect that many North Americans will find the web sites' content to be offensive.

Some will also find this page to be offensive, and something that should not be included in a website promoting religious tolerance.

We provide the information because we feel that it is important to document groups holding unpopular beliefs, many of which are religiously-motivated:
