Ku Klux Klan Burns Records In Shreveport Louisiana:

Last week, we published articles describing the local, state, and federal investigation of Klan Imperial Grand Dragon Roy E. Davis who made national news after a cross was burned in the lawn of a congressman in Louisiana. After learning that Roy E. Davis held numerous membership drives for the Original Knights of the Ku Klux Klan (that were highly publicized) in the Shreveport area, we asked the question: why did the Shreveport members of Branham's "Message" cult keep this information to themselves? Did the Shreveport area cult members purposefully hide information from the rest of Branham's following?

As it turns out, what started in Shreveport with Branham's numerous sermons and Roy E. Davis' numerous Klan rallies ended with a sudden disposal of all records. As the Federal Bureau of Investigation was cracking down on Davis's branch of the Ku Klux Klan in Louisiana, the records were burned. All membership records were destroyed, all financial records destroyed, and firearms were missing.

Interestingly, this article raises more questions concerning what we initially thought to be false statements by William Branham. During the course of his ministry, William Branham often named men as "FBI Heads" or "FBI Agents" who were not employed by the United States Government in the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Some of them, like George J. Lacy and Al Farrar contracted for the FBI, but did not hold the titles Branham gave them. Even Gene Goad and Leo Mercier were mentioned in Branham's sermons as having "formed them a little FBI to investigate"

It turns out the Klan had their own "Klan Bureau of Investigation." Could it be that Branham was actually being truthful about these men being investigators? Were they actually working for the Klan's Bureau of Investigation?

Unfortunately the membership records at Shreveport headquarters were burned. Otherwise, we might have to issue another apology and correction! :)
