(PJ Media) Leaders of Christian organizations the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) unfairly labels as "hate groups" told PJ Media that a massive legal onslaught is headed toward the SPLC — and it could involve as many as sixty separate lawsuits in different states around the country.

"These are individual lawsuits that we're looking at, not class action."
He explained that the roughly 60 organizations considering the suit intend to "make the SPLC defend itself all over the country."
