Amazon will allow you to donate to any charity

Amazon's philanthropy page, AmazonSmile, prides itself on the fact that customers can choose to donate one-half of one percent of their purchase to charitable organizations of virtually any political stripe – as long as their views are approved by the Southern Poverty Law Center, reports LifeSiteNews.

AmazonSmile's general manager Ian McAllister told the Seattle Times that "Amazon prides itself on being customer-centric,” and has "structured [AmazonSmile] to put customers in control, and we feel good about that decision.” A spokesperson for Oregon Right to Life told the Seattle Times that the group is "really pleased about how easy it is for pro-lifers to donate."

But those customers cannot give to any organization designated by the SPLC as a “hate group.”

That censorship, and the quality of SPLC's judgment, has drawn backlash from conservative leaders.

“No one should rely on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s inaccurate and biased data," Family Research Council Executive Vice President Jerry Boykin told LifeSiteNews.com. FRC was targeted by a domestic terrorist on the basis of the SPLC's data.

“Concerns about SPLC’s lack of credibility only continue to grow," Boykin said. "The FBI has removed links to the SPLC from its ‘hate crimes resources’ page, and the Department of Defense along with the U.S. Army have distanced themselves from SPLC’s materials."
