House of Prayer
On my bike ride yesterday over to my dad’s house I finally stopped and took a picture of the House of Prayer, parked directly across the street from Bunn elementary school. I was a bit disappointed because there are usually more placards of scripture out front and the crazy lady usually comes out and screams at you in a white KKK type get-up. Speaking of the Klan, I watched this thing on the History channel about’m Saturday night and was really surprised to find out that they had more than 3 million members at one point. They started up in the ‘20’s as more and more immigrants were entering the country.
I was sadly reminded of the time I went to a Klan tent at the North Carolina State Fair. I guess I was about 8 or 9 years old when my dad and his friend happened inside with me in tow. The “preacher” ‘bout scared the shit out of me talking about “them damn (insert N word here)!” I knew even at that very early age, they was WRONG for that! They was just IGNUNT! I must admit the experience left a bit of a scar and disturbs me to this day.
So let that be a lesson parents, don’t take your kids to no damn Klan meetings!
