Klan to Rally in Support of Anti-Gay Amendment

(Link) The Ku Klux Klowns will join the "family values" crowd in supporting Texas' pending constitutional amendment against same-sex marriage. Not to mention the added faux pas of wearing white after Labor Day.

From Associated Press
AUSTIN, Texas -- The Ku Klux Klan plans to rally in Austin to support the gay marriage amendment set for the Nov. 8 ballot.

The rally planned on the steps of city hall the Saturday before the election will urge voters to favor proposition 2.

However, some who support proposition 2 don't welcome the KKK's assistance.

One such person is Pastor Ryan Rush of Bannockburn Baptist Church.

Rush said that a group that would come in that is characterized as hateful and bigoted is not welcome in this city. He said he doesn't want the Klan as a partner on any cause.

In a letter the Klan sent to the city, the group acknowledged that security will be an issue, noting the violence that erupted at a KKK rally and march to the capitol in Austin in 1983.

About that Anti-Gay Amendment... The actual wording is:

"The constitutional amendment providing that marriage in this state consists only of the union of one man and one woman and prohibiting this state or a political subdivision of this state from creating or recognizing any legal status identical or similar to marriage."

Which if passed would, um, technically ban ALL marriages in Texas.
