They used to have a Protestant bend, due to their anti-Catholicism, but i doubt that has much bearing today

This thread has plenty of television and little historical literacy. They were a Christian organization. Lighting the cross is equivalent to raising a flag upside down.

Isn't a cross with flames at the bottom of it a Methodist symbol?

Are you talking about modern KKK or the old KKK? They were both idiots but the old wasn't as bad as the new in a few ways. The old didn't want to kill or ship them any where, they just wanted to keep things the same and prevent what has happened today where blacks control and have ruined whole cities and completely altered politics. The old KKK was mildly religious but not like today's KKK where for some reason they are constantly misquoting scriptures and seems religion is a fairly if not perverted part of it.

KKK is all but dead, even white trash rednecks I know wouldn't have a thing to do with that shit.

The only members I have ever seen (at least admitted to it) did a march in the town of Hope Mills North Carolina years back. Their numbers were small and they looked like a pathetic bunch.

The MSM would have you believe that its a thriving organization that is run by Republicans

ETA

They have a warped view of what being a Christian is all about.

Yeah, this. Doesn't matter if they were "real" Christians, they absolutely, undeniably used Christianity to their ends.

The Southern Poverty Law Center swears there is not one, but TWO active Klan organizations here in Rhode Island.

Believe me, this place is so small, and everybody is so interconnected that if the Klan was here, everybody would know all about it.

So when you see their "Hate Map" map of the US with all the various colored dots on it, each representing some sort of "hate" organization, you can forget about the ones representing the Klan in RI. Can't speak for any of the others, but the claims about RI from SPLC are 100% moonshine.

The old time Klan was a Christian organization. I've heard stories about the KKK visiting men who cheated on their wives, abused their children, drank too much, etc. They weren't all about race. More like Christian vigilantes. I don't think that Klan still exists.


ETA: I meant that the Klan considered themselves a Christian organization, not that I think they are or that any reasonable person would think so.

I just looked at Florida and there are a bunch right around us!?!?! My husband said, "What do you mean, around us, one is us" The SPLC published some quotes here from Afrcom a while back and my hubby was one of them. It was a negative (non racist) comment about BHO. They took it out of context and attributed him and the remark to the wrong website. That doesn't say a lot about them. Idiots.

I was just responding to WayneD's post. Sorry, should have used quote.

BTW, I don't think they could possibly justify what they do using religion. What religion would they use? Certainly not Christianity.

That is correct.

Burning a cross was not "equivalent to raising a flag upside down". It was originally done to "illuminate" the cross so it could be seen from great distances, before the invention of electric lights. It was not "invented" by the Klan.

The Klan did indeed mis-use Christianity to fool some folks into thinking they were legitimate. But their beliefs were not anything like mainstream Protestant Christianity. Their true religious beliefs were usually more toward Nazi beliefs than Christianity.

Socialist black groups like the NAACP also pretended to be "Christian", but were often controlled by Communists and Socialists, that were not believers.

Stirring in a little religion is often used to fool the unwary into thinking a group is something that it is not.

Just looking at the map , some of the 'dots' are orginizations in my state that ceased to exist TWENTY years ago.


As for them being christian, anyone can claim to be a christian even though their views and statements don't match up with the bible..........That's just how it is.

Yep.

Add a little 'jesus talk' to whatever movement you want, and it legitimizes it in the eyes of the masses who, in this case, were in a nominally Christian culture. As is always the case, Christianity runs the risk of becoming a cultural phenomena and not a personal thing (see: replacing the commandments of God with the traditions of men) and organizations like the klan prey on that to make themselves look more legitimate.

The New Testament actually refutes bacis klan teaching; in Acts 17, Paul declares that all men are descended from Adam. In other words, we're physically kinned to people of all skin colors. There is only one 'race' and one Mediator between God and any man of any skin color.

But, yes, the klan did try to piggyback themselves onto Christianity to justify their hatred.

This.

My great-grandfather was a member in southern West Virginia. If you didn't support your family, were a drunkard or an unfaithful husband, they would show up and beat a little responsibility into you in the name of christ.

At least that's the story my grandmother tells. She said the klan used to be a "sacred" organization.

It used to be a vigiliante Democratic social club.
If you wanted a town/county job in many areas, you had to join up to make connections. Of course, the extra curricular activities of cross-burning, Jew/Catholic/Irish/black/homosexual hate and violence were just added bonuses...

It's not if you don't cherry-pick an article's definition for 1 phrase and run with it.

Are you a son of a confederate veteran that also believes the following:
Neo-Confederacy also incorporates advocacy of traditional gender roles, is hostile towards democracy, strongly opposes homosexuality, and exhibits an understanding of race that favors segregation and suggests white supremacy. In many cases, neo-Confederates are openly secessionist.


Then yeah, you might be a Neo-Confederate. Also take note that:

In its most recent iteration, neo-Confederacy is used by both proponents and critics to describe a belief system that has emerged since the early-1980s in publications like Southern Partisan, Chronicles, and Southern Mercury, and in organizations including the League of the South, the Council of Conservative Citizens and the Sons of Confederate Veterans.


Does not say that members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans are racists. It says that neo-Confederacy has made inroads in that organization.

Neo-Confederacy has applied to groups including the United Daughters of the Confederacy of the 1920s and those resisting racial integration in the 1950s and 1960s. In its most recent iteration, neo-Confederacy is used by both proponents and critics to describe a belief system that has emerged since the early-1980s in publications like Southern Partisan, Chronicles, and Southern Mercury, and in organizations including the League of the South, the Council of Conservative Citizens and the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

That does not say that members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans are racists. It says that neo-Confederacy has made inroads in that organization. There's also an entire definition of Neo-Confederacy posted above that in the article. If you don't match it, then you're probably not a Neo-Confederate, then are you?

Edit: To make it simpler - "In its most recent iteration, neo-Confederacy is ... a belief system that has emerged since the early-1980s in ... organizations including ... the Sons of Confederate Veterans." Doesn't sound like their calling the organization Neo-Confederate.

Doesn't matter if other civil war vets had anything to do with the clan or not, none should of used the battle flag, they should of made their own flag.

As far as the Nation of Islam, black panthers, or other idiotic groups, that's not what this thread is about and is a topic for another thread. Topic deflection, only works for liberals, sorry but conservatives should argue the topic at hand with facts, not deflect and make excuses. .

The racists that I have the pleasure of dealing with... Have their own version of religious doctrine...

I was just talking about this with a buddy the other day... I have only been in LE for six years now... And the hardcore white supremacists I deal with are into viking worship, and other stuff like that. I can't think of any that I have wrestled and cuffed that had "christianity" as a belief system.

Twisting scriptures around to fit thier own agenda... Yes. But even then, they will use Old/New testament scripture, but their "beliefs" when it comes time to put them on paper are the viking worship type of stuff.

That is the hardcore white suprepacists.

None of what I wrote above was meant to offend any arfcom members who are into viking woship type of religions. I am sure there are people who do that who are not hardcore white supremacists.

Exodus 21:20-21 (NIV)
Anyone who beats their male or female slave with a rod must be punished if the slave dies as a direct result, but they are not to be punished if the slave recovers after a day or two, since the slave is their property.



New Testament approval of slavery:
Ephesians 6:5-8 (NIV)
Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart. Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do, whether they are slave or free.

King James Version:

5aServants, be obedient to them that are your bmasters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;

6Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the aservants of Christ, doing the bwill of God from the heart;

7With good will doing aservice, as to the Lord, and not to men:

8Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he areceive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.

Be a "servant of Christ" ≠ slave ownership.

Dude, you are *really* *really* reaching trying to try to equate a doctrine of serving Christ to endorsement of slave ownership. You really have no grasp of Christian doctrine...
