Ancona’s Website

The body of the Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan in St. Louis Frank Ancona was recently found close to a river in Missouri. This is the same man who threatened lethal force against protestors in Ferguson. I was one of those protestors. In some small way, I guess Ancona threatened to kill me too. When I saw that he was dead, I briefly had a moment of celebration. Then, I remembered Jesus. In the midst of it all, I was pulled back to my faith. I heard, “love your enemies.” I heard, “love your neighbors.” I heard, “pray for those who persecute you.” In the moment, l repented. Something returned. I thought about Ancona’s family. I thought about hate. I thought about death. I thought murder. During it all, I prayed for the courage to love no matter the circumstance. In the midst of these dangerous times, I suggest you do the same.

 

Amen.
