What Part of ‘Religious Freedom To Hold Whites-Only Bible Study’ Don’t You Understand, Alabama?

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Christian KnightsHey Winfield, Alabama, why you so mad at this pastor, Rev. William Collier, who just wants to hold whites-only conference for whites-only pastors, because of religious liberty, and because he doesn’t have the “facilities” to accomodate other races? (Quick: what “facilities” might he need? Slave quarters? A jail cell? A chicken deep-fryer? A kosher kitchen? Definitely a kosher kitchen.) What part of “religious liberty” don’t you get, is what Rev. Collier and his whites-only brethren want to know!

“The mayor ordered our flyers to be taken down. When did they start religious censorship?” asked Reverend Mel Lewis of Christian Identity Ministries.

Among the Ku Klux Klan flags and white supremacy slogans, a small group of so-called “white Christians” contend they have been treated unfairly – that they have the right, like any other American, to worship how they wish.

“We are not breaking any laws. We’re not violating any ordinances. We’re bringing the Word of God to people who want it, obviously, or they wouldn’t be here,” said Lewis.

Of course the Klan is in thick attendance at Collier’s conference this year, and of course they will close the festivities with the sacred ceremonial burning of the cross, but Collier wants you to know (all together now!) he is not a racist. He just happens to believe the white race was chosen by God to be better than all the other ones! And on that, he rests his case!

The organizer of the event, Rev. William C. Collier says that his Church of God’s Chosen (Christian Identity Ministries) is not a hate group but adds that he believes “the white race is God’s chosen people.”
Collier defends why only white Christians are invited.

“We don’t have the facilities to accommodate other people. We haven’t got any invitations to black, Muslim events. Of course we are not invited to Jewish events and stuff,” Collier said.

Why won’t the Jews invite the Rev. William Collier and his sacred burning crosses to their events and stuff? Maybe fix him a nice plate of kugel? Hop to it, Jews. Also, please try to stop infringing on Rev. William Collier’s religious liberty, by existing.

I have to post a picture of the historical marker of the surrender of Atlanta, funny, there's no museum to Northern Victory at the site, just a plaque and some apartments.
Zombie General Sherman would approve.

I'm way late to the party, as usual, lately. I am reminded of an article in the old Lampoon, when it was transitioning from funny to awful, about the "New" Klan, showing people of all different races wearing the robes and hoods. Not your father's Klan, indeed!

CrunchyKnee July 5, 2012 at 12:50 pm

All beliefs in pretend sky fairies are stupid, but add a big dash of southern cracker racism and you have something uniquely American.

Jesus was black AND a Jew. I'm sure he has no interest in attending either.

Jesus was also an anchor baby.

There is nothing I can say about this to make fun of it. I literally want to go to sleep, in the hopes that this will be gone when I wake up.

Biel_ze_Bubba July 5, 2012 at 9:44 pm

Just because all other races are inferior, doesn't mean he hates them.

I suppose he's being charitable, by KKK standards — and they probably don't much care for his attitude.

BaldarTFlagass July 5, 2012 at 12:54 pm

Maybe the Rev. Collier would get more invitations to Jewish events if he promised to burn a large Star of David.

It'd certainly shore up our country's reputation in Gaza and Tehran.

Well, the Bible was written in English, so far as these geniuses know, so obviously God chose whitey to rule the world.

Up here in the totally not-racist north I attended a whites-only public grammar school, which allowed me to attain the age of 11, I believe it was, before I ever saw a "black" person in actual person! It was a female, and she was way at the end of a long hallway, but there she was, an actual black! And I was shocked, because she wasn't black so much as a chocolatey brown! I had been decieved! This is totally true, too!

anniegetyerfun July 5, 2012 at 1:38 pm

No lie, I grew up in a town that was 30% Hispanic and then mostly white. We had something like three black students in our high school and they were celebrities. We were all convinced of their athletic prowess (they had none) and they got high-fives just for walking down the hallway. I'm sure they cringe a little bit now thinking back on it.

prommie July 5, 2012 at 2:01 pm

There were two black girls in Junior High, they were definitely celebrities.

I also once knew a jew who tried to buy a house in Bay Head, New Jersey. The realtor told him he wouldn't be comfortable there. And refused to show him the house.

If the Mormon church could suddenly stop being totally racist a few decades ago for tax break reasons, why can't the KKK?

Because the KKK sucks at math, that's why.

I'm not sure the KKK had tax breaks to lose … but then again, there's a lot of crazy shit in the tax code..

From literature I've read, and testimonies of what occurs at meetings, that the Christian conference where a bunch of fat-assed old men with canes and crutches, and pronounced beer bellies through besheeted yokels sitting in lawn chairs outside a toolshed in French Fry Funeral, Alabama, is a far fucking cry to the militant evil associated with the so-called "Christian Identity" crowd.

They said it's not a cross-burning, but rather a sacred Christian cross lighting. As with all the other events here, it is open to all white Christians.

Pastor, the whole point of burning crosses is to intimidate NON-white peoples, like in their own back yards and church grounds — where did you say you honed your fear and loathing chops, again? Rename it "Christian Identity-Crisis Ministries" if your idea of sowing hate is sitting around smelling your own farts — that's not racial malfeasance!!

ASHLEIGH_Joe July 5, 2012 at 1:45 pm

The organizer of the event, Rev. William C. Collier says that his Church of God’s Chosen (Christian Identity Ministries) is not a hate group but adds that he believes “the white race is God’s chosen people.”
Collier defends why only white Christians are invited.

Obvious contradiction is obvious.

Also, wikipedia:

According to Chester L. Quarles, professor of criminal justice at the University of Mississippi, some of the Christian Identity movement's followers hold that non-Caucasian peoples have no souls, and can therefore never earn God's favor or be saved.[...]

The Christian Identity movement first received widespread attention by mainstream media in 1984, when the white nationalist organization known as The Order embarked on a murderous crime spree before being taken down by the FBI. Tax resister and militia movement organizer Gordon Kahl, whose death in a 1983 shootout with authorities helped inspire The Order, also had connections to the Christian Identity movement.[3][4] The movement returned to public attention in 1992 and 1993, in the wake of the deadly Ruby Ridge confrontation, when newspapers discovered that former Green Beret and right-wing separatist Randy Weaver had at least a loose association with Christian Identity believers. [...]

Racialism, or race based philosophy is the core tenet of Christian Identity, and most CI adherents are White Nationalists or support racial segregation. Some believe that Jews are genetically compelled by their Satanic or Edomite ancestry to carry on a conspiracy against the Adamic seedline and today have achieved almost complete control of the Earth through their illegitimate claim to the white race's status as God's chosen people.[

tessiee July 5, 2012 at 2:26 pm

"the Christian Identity movement's followers hold that non-Caucasian peoples have no souls, and can therefore never earn God's favor or be saved.[...] "

Wait, I thought they were baptizing them after they died, and…
Oh, wait. That's those other guys.

I'm betting their fliers were taken down simply because they never got the permit to post on public rights-of-way/utility poles/etc.

So it's communism as well as religious persecution!

Naked_Bunny July 5, 2012 at 8:05 pm

Yeah, you can't post on utility poles where I live. I didn't see anything in the articles that even says the authorities took down the flyers, though, and it's not illegal for me to take down somebody else's flyer as long as it's not on private property.

Memaw loves her nephew Mel Lewis, acourse she does, but she also wishes he would shut the hell up.

but adds that he believes “the white race is God’s chosen people.”

Wait, I thought the Jews were "God's chosen people".
