Amazon Gives ADF the Boot from Its AmazonSmile Program
Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve received many calls, emails, and Facebook messages with a major concern: Our Ministry Friends were no longer able to give to Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) through the AmazonSmile program. In case you’re not familiar with it, AmazonSmile is a website that allows a customer to choose a nonprofit group to receive a percentage of any Amazon purchase.

Apparently, Amazon no longer sees ADF as a suitable nonprofit for its program. But why?

We contacted Amazon to find out what happened, and lo and behold, Amazon informed us that we were removed because the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) determines who is qualified.

Yes, that SPLC. The one that exploits the terms “hate” and “hate group” against any organization it disagrees with. ...

It is certainly the right of companies to be able to support who they want (as long as its not sinful). The problem here is not that Amazon doesn't want to support ADF. The problem is that, if the tables were switched, a Christian company not wanting to support something wrong (like LGBTQ) is attacked as being "non inclusive". It is a one sided argument. We are willing to recognize the right that companies do not have to support who they don't want too. But the other side is not willing to recognize that right for us.

Amazon is not the forerunner of censorship. The Soviet Union had a pretty good plan. The Chinese Communist government are making thought policing a policy that Amazon, Yahoo, Google, Apple and every corporation that has its hooks into consumers is making policy. The US constitution is not represented as it is irrelevant when the fuel for censorship is greed and control.

Jim, you might want to consider the mission of ADF. It is a First Admendment rights group, which I guess is political in a way. But considering that there are politics in favor or against everything these days, including soda pop, that makes every organization political.

Yes, Amazon has every right to decide who they will support. So do I. I'll choose Walmart who took Cosmo out of the checkout aisle rather than Amazon who wants to push porn into my home via their streaming video service.

Amazon has every right to determine what is a acceptable charity to them or not. The ADF is a political group. Amazon probably has other charities they will contribute to that Christians can find acceptable.
Phil Johnson wrote:
...America's moral decline has accelerated dramatically since evangelicals became politically aggressive in the late 1970s....they have been remarkably ineffective when it comes to using politics to reverse America's moral and spiritual decline....
Worst of all, during that same period of time, the evangelical movement has completely lost its spiritual influence, because the evangelical segment of the church has grown increasingly worldly. Evangelicals have become accustomed to compromise. They have abandoned (or else are in the process of abandoning) virtually all the doctrinal distinctives that made them distinct from Roman Catholics and nominal Christians whose faith amounts to a kind of civil religion. Evangelicals have pretty much forfeited whatever real moral and spiritual authority their movement ever had.

Amazon is another major player in ensuring he liberal agenda marches forward. I'm surprised that an organization like Alliance Defending Freedom would have been supported through charitable giving by Amazon in the first place. It's not surprising that the SPLC is at the heart of its operation's decision making.

Amazon made a lot of money by trying to get a step ahead of its customers thinking by amassing a lot of data regarding what its customers are shopping for and buying. Charitable giving and important causes are likely an important input into their algorithims.

That represents a lot of knowledge, easily accessible, for those opposed to any particular viewpoint to use to track down those who adhere to that viewpoint.

Instead, Amazon ought to look at Psalm 2 and make peace now with the Lord.

As for us, I've started ordering, when I can, from Walmart. Walmart is t perfect, but it's better than Amazon. And 2 day shipping is free and no membership required.
