grace of God and by following HIS CHRIST, be able to hide the scars and stains of sin with the righteousness of CHR IST when we stand before HIS GREAT WHITE THRONE.
THE HOOD That hated hood, the terror of every evil force in the land, how they cry, "take off the hood." But they don't know what they say. They do not understand why we wear it or what it means. "If they only knew!"
In the first place it helps to conceal our membership. The secret of our power lies in the secrecy of our membership. We are a great secret organization to aid the officers of the law and we can do our best work when we are not known to the public. By this means we see and hear everything. We know the evil forces but they do not know us. By our secret membership we gather thousands into the meshes of the law that would otherwise escape.
It is also a symbol of UNSELFISHNESS. With the hood we hide our individuality and sink ourselves into the sea of Klankraft. Not as individuals but as Klansmen, "WE SACRIFICE TO SERVE." Our motto is, "NON SILBA SED ANTHAR --not for self but for others." Therefore, we hide self behind the hood that we may be unselfish in our service.
Who can look upon a multitude of white robed Klansmen without thinking of the equality and unselfishness of that throng of white robed saints in the GLORY LAND? May the God of Heaven, Who looks not upon the outward appearance but upon the heart, find every Klansman worthy of the robe and hood he wears. Then when we "DO THE THINGS WE TEACH" and "LIVE THE LIVES WE PREACH, "the title of Klansman will be the most honorable title among men.
Thus with our symbols we seek to emphasize and impress the sacred, sublime and holy principles of Klankraft. WITH GOD AS OUR FATHER, CHRIST AS OUR CRITERION, THE BIBLE AS OUR GUIDE, THE CROSS AS OUR INSPIRATION, AND THE FLAG AS OUR PROTECTION, WE MEAN TO MARCH ON TO A TRIUMPHANT VICTORY FOR THE PRINCIPLES OF RIGHT IN THE U.S. KLANS, KNIGHTS OF THE KU KLUX KLAN.
