Why do the Kkk Burn Crosses?

The Ku Klux Klan’s fiery emblem of hate actually has its origins in an ancient benign Scottish tradition. When Scottish clans would gather, they would light a signal bonfire in the shape of a St. Andrew’s Cross (which looks like an x) to summon all members. St. Andrew was the patron saint of Scotland. Apparently, this was lost in translation. Anyway, the early Ku Klux Klan leaders were eager to draw on anything to steep the Klan in tradition, and the fiery cross was promoted in the novel ‘The Clansman’ and the movie ‘The Birth of a Nation’. Fiery Roman crosses have been associated with the KKK ever since. To find more information click here:
