Making Christians Wrong Again:  Guidestar and “Hate Groups”


Since the Supreme Court sanctioned homosexual “marriage,” there have been endless attacks on individuals and organizations that advocate a Christian worldview.  Guidestar is the latest organization to adopt an anti-Christian stance.

Guidestar is largest organization that provides information on the country’s nonprofits.  Nonprofits rely on donations, and philanthropic organizations rely on Guidestar for information about them.

The Southern Poverty Law Center is a pro-homosexual organization that began in the early ‘70s with a civil rights focus.  The law office became active suing the Ku Klux Klan for example.  More recently the organization has focused on supporting homosexual activism, immigration and the separation of church and state.   The Southern Poverty Law Center targets conservative Christian organizations, labeling them “hate groups.”


This month, June 2017, Guidestar partnered with the Southern Poverty Law Center.  The result is that 46 Christian organizations have been labeled “hate groups” by Guidestar.  Groups such as Focus on the Family and Family Research Council have been so labeled.  Guidestar has temporarily removed the labeling.

Guidestar does not appear interested in hearing from the Christian community, claiming that input in defense of a Christian worldview had turned into “harassment and threats” against their staff.

Nevertheless, if you would like to contact Guidestar with your concern, you can email, or fax (757) 229-8912.

The Guidestar slogan is “Better data. Better decisions. Better world.”  Please let Guidestar know there is nothing better in labeling Christian organization as “hate groups.

Lastly, please pray for Guidestar and its founder, Arthur “Buzz” Schmidt.

Thank you and God bless you.
