Potential presidential candidate Ben Carson has been labeled as an "extremist" by the Southern Poverty Law Center for his support of biblical marriage. 

The SPLC labels his ideology as "Anti-LGBT," and cites Caron's quotes in multiple news interviews, as well as his written word in "America the Beautiful," for his placement.  

"When embracing traditional Christian values is equated to hatred, we are approaching the stage where wrong is called right and right is called wrong," Carson tells WND in response to the placement. "It is important for us to once again advocate true tolerance." 

The SPLC, which was founded to ensure follow-through of the civil rights movement, has gone for fighting for racial equality to "advocacy."  

"The SPLC has moved from monitoring actual hate groups like the KKK and Neo Nazis to slandering mainstream Christian organizations with that very same 'hate group' label," Charisma columnist Matt Barber said in 2012 protest. "By extension, the SPLC is smearing billions of Christians and Jews worldwide as 'haters,' simply because they embrace the traditional Judeo-Christian sexual ethic." 

Other "extremists" include Charimsa writers Michael Brown and David Lane.
