The Alliance Defending Freedom, the far-right legal group that argued in the Supreme Court Tuesday for a Colorado baker who refused service to a gay couple, has a deceptive name. It’s more like the Alliance Defending Oppression.
The ADF has a long record of anti-LGBT activism, in addition to opposition to abortion rights and support for other religious right causes. The Advocate has covered the group’s activities over the years, and it’s also been the subject of recent reports from GLAAD, Media Matters for America, and The Nation. It has justifiably been designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Here’s a look at the ADF’s history and some of its most egregious deeds.
Christian right activists including Alan Sears, James Dobson, and D. James Kennedy founded the organization in 1993, “in the midst of a conservative panic over a gay-rights movement that was just beginning to score some legal victories,” The Nation’s Sarah Posner writes in her piece, “The Christian Legal Army Behind ‘Masterpiece Cakeshop.’”
The movement had just endured a setback, though, in Colorado voters’ 1992 passage of Amendment 2, a ballot measure that prohibited the state or its municipalities from enacting or enforcing laws that banned discrimination based on sexual orientation. A lawsuit brought by gay rights supporters kept Amendment 2 from going into effect, however, and the discriminatory measure was struck down by the Supreme Court in 1996 in Romer v. Evans, its first-ever pro-gay ruling. Colorado now has a law banning discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in employment, housing, public accommodations, and other areas — the very law that Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips was found to have violated by refusing to create a wedding cake for a gay couple.
