As light drives out darkness, so knowledge and truth dispel ignorance and superstition. The lighting of the Cross was originally taken from the lighting of signal fires upon the mountain tops of Scotland as a warning of danger from an invading enemy. So we of the American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan light the cross as a warning signal to all men of the impending disaster that is facing our Nation if it continues on it's present course without God.

We also light the Cross, as a tribute to Jesus Christ in recognition of his sacrifice, and willingness to die for our sins. We endeavor to warn of the dangers of interracial mixing, and teach those who will listen and learn, the ways of the Klan. We feel it is our duty to prepare ourselves, and those of our race, for the hard road ahead, while the Government over this Nation turns like a rabid dog upon the very people who support it.

We of the American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan want you to understand that there is a difference between Lighting a cross and a Cross burning.

The lighting of a cross is a religious ceremony, performed in reverence to the Lord Jesus Christ, in recognition of his sacrifice.

The burning of a cross is an illegal act of violence against a person or a person's home, while invading their privacy with the intent to harass, intimidate, or do bodily harm. This act of burning a cross is usually performed by irate citizens who do not understand the rules of the Klan, but wish to use the influence of the Klan to scare their victims, by burning a cross usually less than ten feet tall in the persons yard or against the home.

We of the American knights of the Ku Klux Klan, wish to take this opportunity to invite you to join us and learn the meaning of true Klan craft, and help us build a better Nation for our children to grow up in and call home.
