I can’t help but get a chuckle out of this. Opponents of same sex marriage apparently get a little bent out of shape when their fellow haters — in this case the Klan — turn out to show their support.
The Ku Klux Klan plans to rally in Austin to support the gay marriage amendment set for the Nov. 8 ballot.
The rally planned on the steps of city hall the Saturday before the election will urge voters to favor Proposition 2.
However, some who support Proposition 2 don’t welcome the KKK’s assistance.
One such person is Pastor Ryan Rush of Bannockburn Baptist Church.
Rush said that a group that would come in that is characterized as hateful and bigoted is not welcome in this city. He said he doesn’t want the Klan as a partner on any cause.
Why the chuckle? Because I think it’s funny when people who advocate for a law that would mandate discrimination against an entire group of people actually don’t see themselves as bigots. It’s almost enough to inspire a new respect for the Ku Klux Klan. At least the Klan member know what they are and are honest about it.
