The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) will be adding five new organizations to its list of hate groups next year: the American Family Association, Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, Family Research Council, Illinois Family Institute, and Dove World Outreach Center. According to the SPLC, these organizations were selected based on their propagation of known falsehoods about homosexuality and the LGBT community.
