Thoughts on the KKK

Not many things make me angry enough to lose control, but when someone openly shames the name of Jesus I could bite bullets.
I noticed a little article about the Ku Klux Klan getting a permit to protest the Iraq war in September at the Cyclorama Center at Gettsyburg National Military Park. The permit was granted due to the “constitutional rights of free speech and peaceable assembly”.
I don’t argue with the KKK’s right to peaceably protest whatever they want to. (Maybe nobody will show up to listen to them!) What I do have a problem with is their claim to be Christians. If you go to their official website, they have the audacity to claim to be a Christian organization of great moral and good Christian behavior. They also claim to come in the name of THE LORD God JESUS CHRIST.
It angers me to even repeat their blasphemous claims.
As I said in an earlier post, one cannot be a Christian and be a racist too. I believe the members of this hate group will burn in the lower and hotter corridors of hell unless they truly repent and are born again. Of all who condemn the Klan, and all should, we as Christians should be the most vocal and most adamant. This group shames the name of Jesus and is no more Christian than Fred Phelps and his group. Their hatred of others shows their real nature. And their objection to the Iraq war is contrary to where the majority of Evangelical Christians stand, putting the KKK in the same camp with the likes of the Cindy Sheehans, Susan Sarandons and Sean Penns – in other words – the liberal camp. Ironic, isn’t it, that the liberals like to label the KKK and Fred Phelps' group as extremists on the right, when in actuality, they think more like the left.


"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works." II Corinthians 11:13-15

"members of this hate group will burn in the lower and hotter corridors of hell unless they truly repent and are born again."

Sad, but true. The unsaved actually get this one right... some will burn hotter than others. But where they get it wrong is the belief that good deeds mitigate evil deeds. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Intellectually, I know this group is still lurking about, but I'm nonetheless astounded that it hasn't gone the way of the Dodo. To me, the KKK's tenets are akin to belief in the tooth fairy

You are so right. The lost DO think God has this big "scale" up in heaven, weighing our "good deeds" against our "sins".

The really awesome thing about God is that even this group (KKK) that I despise and would have a hard time forgiving is just as able to receive salvation as anyone else because God loves THEM as much as He loves all of us...

Only a God like our great God could be so loving.

Wouldn't it be...er...umm..funny to see an anti-war protest with Sheehan and Michael Moore marching with entwined arms and in lockstep with the KKK?

Reckon the MSM would report on that?

Dadio, that's just about the most amusing thought I've heard all week...Michael could bring the camera and Cindy could bring the tofu...

As bad the KKK is as far as the hate goes, many of the members started out as good Christians. Many started out in churches preaching false a gospel until they actually believe God is on their side. I have witnessed hatred inside churches just as much as the KKK. Churches not to far from me hate blacks and say they are saved and love Jesus. No different than the KKK, except they hide in their 4 walls.
