The organizers also pointed out that they’ve never been invited to NAACP meetings and mosques and synagogues and stuff….so there! What’s the problem?
The closing day of the event will include a “Sacred Christian Cross Lighting Ceremony”, to symbolize an “opposition to tyranny.” While there will be KKK members in attendance, this lighting ceremony is absolutely not a “cross burning” long associated with Klan activity.
