This essay is on the ReligiousTolerance.org web site, which describes many dozens of different faith groups. We feel that the public needs to learn the full range of beliefs and practices
of all major religious groups in North America. This includes religions based on bigotry, racial hatred and white supremacy such as this group.
The Creativity Movement (TCM) is a non-Christian, non-profit, religious organization, with their head office in
Illinois. 3They have 24 regional and local branches. 4 They have members "all
over the world." They promote the religion of "Creativity,
based on the eternal laws of nature." Their prime objective is: "The
survival, expansion and advancement of the white race."
They regard themselves as being motivated by a love for the
white race. This implies extreme hatred of non-white races. They are
overwhelmingly hate-filled towards Jews, African-Americans, and other non-whites.
They hate homosexual behavior. However their concern in this area appears to be muted in
comparison to other white-supremacist organizations.
U.S. District Judge Joan H. Lefkow ruled in 2002-NOV that the
TCM violated the copyright of a Christian organization in Oregon, the
Church of the Creator 1by copying their name. 5 The TCM leader, white supremacist Matt Hale, is suing
Judge Lefkow because of her decision. On 2003-JAN-8, Hale was arrested and
accused of conspiring to kill Judge Lefkow. 6 Judge Lefkow
ruled on 2003-APR-24 that the TCM had failed to stop using the name
World Church of the Creator and should be
fined $1,000 a day until it complies.
The founder, Matthew Hale,
was sentenced to 40 years in prison for conspiring to murder Judge Joan
Lefkow. Her husband and mother were allegedly murdered on
2005-FEB-28 by a man unrelated to Hale and the Creativity Movement. He
was angry at a malpractice ruling the Judge Lefkow had made.
