MSNBC attempts to equate Easter worshippers to the KKK
MSNBC is trying to attempt to equate Christians celebrating Easter Sunday to members of the Ku Klux Klan. There running the above picture on their Facebook homepage as part of their Easter celebrations from around the world. This happens to be the very last picture of the 78 pictures posted. Looks a lot like a KKK member standing in front of a crucifix. It isn't until you get to the story that you discover that it is actually a participant of an Easter observance in Norther Spain. One of the commenter's to this photo says that it is a religious order known as the Order of Penitents. Now why would MSNBC highlight such a picture on it's Facebook homepage without some sort of explanation as to what it actually is. What would have been your first reaction to seeing this kind of picture?
