KKK Joins Christian Right in Texas Gay Marriage Ban Push

The Drudge Report picks up on a Houston TV station report that the Ku Klux Klan is coming out of the closet to rally in support of Texas’ November 8 ballot proposition to amend its state constitution to ban same sex marriages. The rally is planned on the steps of Austin’s city hall steps this Saturday.

It seems the Christian right activists pushing for the gay marriage ban aren't all too happy about the KKK’s support for the amendment. Pastor Ryan Rush of Bannockburn Baptist Church told the Houston TV station that “a group that would come in that is characterized as hateful and bigoted is not welcome in this city.”

Well, Pastor Rush, is there not something hateful and bigoted about what you’re doing? People who live in glass houses . . .

The irony is that this is the best thing that could happen for the GLBT community in getting this voted down. Who would want to vote for this and align themselves with the KKK?
