          The SPLC specifically named Focus on the Family as an example of an anti-gay group that did not meet their criteria for designation as a hate group. FotF was included in an SPLC profile of anti-gay groups at the time the SPLC made their announcement of newly-designated hate groups, but they weren't named as one (admittedly the SPLC's press release on the matter was quite confusing).
