LAKE JUNALUSKA, North Carolina (AP) — About a dozen members of the Ku Klux Klan protested Saturday outside a meeting of United Methodists who want gays welcomed in all aspects of church life. The protesters, mostly men and a few women dressed in black and wearing black berets, came from a handful of southern U.S. states and carried signs reading “Show me where sin is OK,” and “God made Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve.” “There’s no place for homosexuals in God’s church,” said Cole Thornton, a leader of the KKK group based in Georgia. “It’s not a born way of life, it’s an accepted way of life. And it’s a direct relationship with sin.” About five counter-protesters from Knoxville, Tenn., who were across the street from the KKK, were asked to leave by police because they were not in a designated protest area. A small group of counter-protesters returned Saturday afternoon to a designated area. One sign they carried read: “I’m straight but I’m not narrow.” No incidents were reported.
