Backwards: The Ku Klux Klan plans to hold a rally in Austin to support the proposed state constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.

Now, I've been a staunch supporter of gay marriage. And I do believe that people who are against it do harbor some homophobia and prejudice. But I wouldn't put people who are against gay marriage in the same league as the Klan.

Which makes me wonder, Why does the KKK ever rally for these things? The Republicans who wrote the Texas amendment don't want anything to do with the Klan. A KKK rally just brings negative light onto an issue Klan members support.

Sure, they have the right to speak, but they'd be better off speaking out against whatever it is they support.
