KKK, Black Church May Become Unlikely Allies

ATHENS, Ga. — A dispute over the Ten Commandments could bring together some unlikely allies — a Ku Klux Klan group and a predominantly black church.

Joseph Harper, who describes himself as the imperial wizard of the American White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, has invited members of Atlanta’s House of Prayer to a Saturday rally protesting a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union.

The ACLU is trying to force the removal of a framed copy of the Ten Commandments from Georgia’s Barrow County courthouse.

The House of Prayer received national attention when its pastor and four members were convicted of aggravated assault and cruelty to children for whipping two boys in church.

A woman who answered the telephone at the church said its members plan to join Harper’s rally.
