And how did they come to own this building? Oh, people, that you have to read to believe:
Ownership of the building was transferred in 1997 to the Rev. David Kennedy and his church, New Beginnings, by a Klansman fighting with others inside the hate group, according to court records. That man, according to Kennedy, was feuding with store proprietor John Howard over a woman and "developed a spiritual relationship" with Kennedy's church, the judge wrote.
Yes, a fight over a woman.
The Rev. Kennedy isn't sure what his congregation is going to do with the building. For obvious reasons, his congregation is a little weirded out about meeting in a building that used to house a segregated theater and is now home to a Klan tourist attraction, but it sounds like he hasn't ruled out using the building as a meeting place. He says, "I think that the church would do good in that building."
Well, sure. Why not? As Billy Sunday says, the Devil's had it long enough.
