Subject: RE: BS: Some Sweet Justice Against the KKK
You're right, Sourdough! At least I can't find anything on-line that backs up the religious club beginnings. My husband's grandmother was a member of several religious groups (REAL religious groups). Among her belongings my husband found a cloth badge he didn't recognize. He asked his grandmother what is was and she said, "Just the badge from some old club I used to belonged to." It wasn't until we were watching the movie "Mississippi Burning" that my husband saw that badge again being worn by Klansmen in the film. Well, there's another skeleton out of HIS family's closet!
