Note that this cheerful Klansman, sitting on a Catholic clergyman, is holding both a Holy Bible. That’s because in the 19th and early 20th century, many Protestants claimed that Catholics were anti-Bible. This stemmed in part from Catholic efforts to stop the Protestants from forcing public school children to read from the King James translation of the Bible. Ironically, Catholics actually did want the Bible to be taught but wanted their children to work off of a Catholic translation. Protestants hated that idea so much that they ended up accepting there being no Bible teaching at all.
