Washington Times: A Ku Klux Klan member reported at Indiana University’s Bloomington campus Monday turned out to be a Dominican friar wearing a white habit. A student reported on Twitter that she saw “someone walking around in kkk gear with a whip” on campus. Residential hall advisor Ethan Gill wrote an email alerting students of the perceived threat and warned them to stay indoors, college news site The Tab first reported.
Mr. Gill was forced to retract the warning on his Facebook page after learning the man was a clergyman in religious clothing — the “whip” being the robe-like belt that was tied around his waist, Breitbart News reported.
(Medial reports say the scare turned out to be caused by college students and staff not knowing about religion. They were not familiar with centuries-old Christian religious garb and so assumed this friar was with the KKK. It is one sign of how far American culture has declined in this postmodern, secular society.)
