What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 32 in a series – “The Klan became the first national organization to deny evolution…”

September 6th, 2019

“Evolution theory too was a Jewish project, promoted in order to undermine the glorious story of creation (an accusation that overlooks the fact that the biblical creation story came from the Jews). The Klan became the first national organization to deny evolution and to sponsor state laws against teaching it, on the grounds that it was not only anti-Christian but also part of a foreign and Jewish conspiracy.46 When William Jennings Bryan died, just after the Scopes trial of 1925, the Klan threw him a large memorial service in Dayton, Ohio, where it burned a cross with the inscription “In memory of William Jennings Bryan, the greatest Klansman of our time.””
