What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 61 in a series – “…many ministers and preachers endorsed the Ku Klux Klan…”

October 21st, 2019

“The 1920s was not the first time that evangelical Protestantism wielded great political influence, but it may have been the first time that bigotry became a major theme among its preachers. That so many ministers and preachers endorsed the Ku Klux Klan and even declared membership in it underlines two important Klan characteristics: its assimilation to conservative Protestantism and its respectability within mainstream politics.”
