Cardinal George Compares Gomorrist Parade to KKK

Edit: In a welcome demonstration of courage and wit, the Chicago's Cardinal compared the individuals associated with a Gomorristic parade to the KKK in their anti-Catholic rhetoric.  As if to confirm the Cardinal's well chosen words, a comment firestorm can be witnessed on Huffpo that demonstrates profound ignorance and bigoted anti-Catholic venom.

The parade has been moved to Sunday and it is legitimately feared that the throng will prevent people from getting to Mass.

Cardinal Francis George, the Archbishop of Chicago, this week told a Chicago news station that he agreed with a local Roman Catholic church’s objections to the city’s recently-adjusted Gay Pride Parade route passing by its doors and warned that the parade could “morph into the Ku Klux Klan.”
George made the comment Sunday on Fox Chicago when asked about Our Lady of Mount Carmel’s complaints that the parade passing by its Belmont Avenue location would force the church to cancel its morning mass. The church recently launched a petition urging the city to force parade organizers to adjust their plans.
“I go with the pastor,” George told Fox. “He’s telling us that he won’t be able to have services on Sunday if that’s the case. You don’t want the gay liberation movement to morph into something like the Ku Klux Klan, demonstrating in the streets against Catholicism.” [more]

Most people I've come to know have no knowledge of the history of the KKK being ant-Roman Catholic. For instance, I was watching the movie, "Oh Brother," and the woman next to me asked why a Catholic group (KKK) would be against Papists. Yes, she believed the KKK to be a Catholic organization – why did she believe this you ask, “Because they dress in robes.” :(

I suppose the confusion lies in the penitential garments worn in Spain long before the CSA existed.
