Religious Freedom Law Firm Demands ABC News Retract Story Calling Them a ‘Hate Group’

ABC News called a religious freedom law firm an “anti-LGBT hate group” in a story about Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ speech to the group.

“Jeff Sessions addresses ‘anti-LGBT hate group,’ but DOJ won’t release his remarks,” read the headline. Sessions spoke to the Alliance Defending Freedom about religious freedom.

“Nothing could be further from the truth,” ADF attorney Kerri Kupec said, adding that ABC is “encouraging this lack of civil discourse.”

She said that ADF’s mission is to advocate for people so they freely live their faith without threats from the government to violate their consciences.

The firm accused ABC News of journalistic malpractice, and has asked for an apology and retraction of the story. ABC News adopted the strong language of the Southern Poverty Law Center against ADF.

Kupec lamented that, “the real news” of Sessions’ “beautiful speech” got lost in the side show of ABC’s coverage.
