Yes, we have the freedom to congregate essentially as we wish on private
property, but we’ll still give the New Empire Knights of the Ku Klux
Klan a thumbs down for its gathering in Abbeville County last month and
its plans to come back next year. Abbeville doesn’t need that, really.
its blog, the group claims to have had 116 members attending the
weekend gathering. That’s about 116 more than we’d like to have had show
up, but ... While enjoying a time of fellowship, which included a
wedding (bet the bride looked great in white -- white sheet, that is!)
the group voted on a few matters, such as whether to allow women and
non-Christians to join or form youth groups. All were voted down, by the
way, which is fine. And interesting.
