Anti-transgender fliers claiming to be from a chapter of the Ku Klux Klan were distributed in at least one Dothan, Alabama neighborhood this weekend.
“It is a free speech issue. There is no threat put in there, no call to arms. It looks like they are asking for donations and putting out a political agenda instead of a hate-based one,” Dothan Police Capt. Will Benny said.
“We are kind of monitoring the situation right now,” he said.
The flier from the Loyal White Knights of the KKK called being transgender “an abomination, according to the King James Bible.”
The flier quotes Deuteronomy 22:5: “A woman shall not wear that pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment. For all that do are an abomination unto the Lord thy God.”
Anyone confused by their gender should “use a tree out in the back yard,” the flier states.
Dothan police said the dissemination of the fliers isn’t necessarily illegal, but a resident could file a complaint for littering.
