The Klan in Iowa is going to conduct an anti-gay protest next month.

A Charles City man who said he’™s a member of the Ku Klux Klan is trying to organize a rally next month to protest attempts to legalize same-sex marriages in Iowa.


Douglas Sadler, 41, said his efforts are prompted by lawsuits filed earlier this month on behalf of six gay couples this month to alter the stateï–¿–½s marriage laws.

ï–¿–½Ã¯–¿–½We donï–¿–½t believe Godï–¿–½s law should be perverted any more than it already has been,ï–¿–½Ã¯–¿–½ said Sadler, a Charles City resident and father of four. ï–¿–½Ã¯–¿–½The further we go away from Godï–¿–½s law, the further we get away from God.ï–¿–½Ã¯–¿–½

. . .

Group officials said they will argue that the state constitutionï–¿–½s equal protection and due process clauses make it unlawful for the state to bar same-sex couples from marrying. They plan to take the case to the Iowa Supreme Court if necessary.

Thatï–¿–½s exactly where Sadler plans to protest. He said his contingent from Cerro Gordo, Floyd and Mitchell counties will head to Des Moines sometime next month and spread their message.

ï–¿–½Ã¯–¿–½We donï–¿–½t believe they have the right to marry,ï–¿–½Ã¯–¿–½ Sadler said. ï–¿–½Ã¯–¿–½In fact, we donï–¿–½t think they have the right to exist.ï–¿–½Ã¯–¿–½

Oh, it is not a surprise at all that they are allies of Radical Right Wing Christian Clerics like Dobson and Wildmon, is it? But look for some strong counter protests, because most Iowans will not put up with that kind of hate.
