I read what you posted about a few of the organizations I was familiar with, including the NAACP and SPLC.<quoted text>
I see this post of yours has already garnered two Clueless, one Nuts and one Spam icons. I'm not surprised. Obviously, Hip, you didn't bother to actually READ what those organizations do and stand for.
Some of them actually do work I not only agree with, but even admire. I admire efforts to get people registered to vote who never would have voted before, for instance. And being the fair, honorable, trustworthy (and modest) person I am, where those organizations do work that I can support, I was honor-bound to include them. I am not the kind of person who would deliberately omit information simply because it did not support my case. Hip, you've seriously disappointed me. By now you should know me better than that.
By the way, that post you addressed to me a couple of weeks ago, similar to this one--I plan to address that in the next couple of days, hopefully tomorrow.
The descriptions of them you posted are about as accurate as a description of the Family Research Council written by the most militant atheist gay organization that you can think of - and you've probably been told about one or two of those that are particularly dangerous.
With that in mind, I think it's perfectly appropriate that you claim the judicons as an indication of the value of your list.
