A sympathetic portrayal of the “white-robed army of Protestant men and women” fighting against the world dominating ambitions of the Roman Catholic Church by the long-time Klan apologist, Alma White. Armed with Biblical scripture, White maintains that the Pope is the Antichrist and the Catholic Church the Scarlet Mother, but that the Klan as the protectors of true Americanism will save Protestant institutions and uphold God-ordained white supremacy. Collects essays, prayers, poems and illustrations, some of which had initially appeared in White’s newspaper, “The Good Citizen.” An enormously popular book that sold over 144,000 copies. Item #06179
