A letter to Chase by one our supporters

Posted on Tuesday, September 12, 2017

Chase Bank executives,

I'm appalled by the fact that you have donated $1 million to the discredited anti-Christian hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). I am currently a Chase customer in two different ways, but am strongly considering yanking my business from your organization due to this misguided decision.
SPLC is left-wing attack organization that unaccountably labels good, charitable groups as "hate groups," simply because it disagrees with their traditional views on marriage and family. Chase should not call its own credibility into question by siding with SPLC.

SPLC's "hate map" has been the cause of at least two violent incidents: the attempted murder of Family Research Council members in August, 2012, and more recently the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise in Virginia.
Does Chase Bank really want to be associated with an organization that has demonstrably fomented murderous violence?

I urge you in the strongest possible terms to rescind your donation to SPLC, distance your company from them, and issue a press release saying that Chase will have nothing further to do with the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Thank you,
