Since this was being done for Halloween, you folks might be interested to know that our modern day celebration of Halloween was originally a Celtic observance of SAMHAIN (pronounced SAW-VIN), the time of year when the harvest has been completed and the cold, dark nights of Winter approach.
To get converts, the Roman Catholic Church merged their rituals with the Celtic customs, and that’s how we got our Halloween.
@6. Yeah, John, it would make sense if this had been a klansman who ended up torching himself but, you’re right, it had nothing to do with the KKK. In fact, the article is so strange, I’m not sure what happened or if it happened but I’m not so curious about it that I’d look further than the link.
