Roy E. Davis Arrested in Shreveport Louisiana:

After a series of Ku Klux Klan membership drives in Shreveport Louisiana (during which time William Branham also held a series of meetings, a cross was burned in the front lawn of Congressman Overton Brooks.

A few months after posing in a new recruit's white robe, Roy Davis returned to Shreveport to be captured in a painting of his imperial purple hood and robe. Upon returning, Roy Davis was arrested and interrogated for two hours.

During his interrogation, Davis admitted that several members of his Klan in the state of Louisiana had criminal records. He first denied any financial benefits for his role as Imperial Wizard of the Klan, but when pressed, he admitted that he received $3.00 per person in each state that was organized.

His arrest is interesting, because it was a highly publicized event in a city where William Branham frequently visited. Shreveport was an integral part of William Branham's ministry. Home of Jack Moore, William Branham's campaign manager and publisher, Shreveport was a city that quickly grew with followers of Branham's "Message." Of the recorded sermons we still have access to, there are 47 meetings held by William Branham in Shreveport Louisiana. And yet, even with the widely known Ku Klux Klan events in Shreveport with his mentor at the center of attention, William Branham continued to promote Imperial Klan Wizard Roy E. Davis until the year of his death.

Did the cult members in Shreveport conceal this information from the rest of William Branham's following? Was Jack Moore part of Davis' Klan? Is that why Jack Moore and Gordon Lindsay chose Davis' home city of Dallas, Texas when he moved his religious organization "Voice of Healing" and renamed it "Christ For The Nations?" CFTN was located in Oak Cliff where Davis was most active and influential.

Do the Louisiana pastors today hold secrets that could rip the cult apart at its seams?
