    Just another wide eyed idealistic group that is going nowhere.

    Didn't see anything that said no blacks allowed.

    I wouldn't join. Why would I ask anyone else to, black or white? It's just another idealistic fringe group.

    The fact is that their charter does not say anything about skin color.

    If it does, point it out.

    IOW It is your opinion that they are a racist group. They may be, but I'd like to know how you reached that conclusion.

    Do you have any evidence to offer...other than just opinions, that is?

    The real reason Crabtownboy does not like this group:

    "For cultural distinctiveness the LS eschews the use of Webster's so-called "American" English orthography which actually is nothing more than a bastardisation of the proper and correct English language by New England busybodies."

    I sent an email to the President of LotS -
    Here is his reply:
    "Here are our two websites: www.leagueofthesouth.com and www.dixienet.org. You can make up your own mind. However, if Christians are basing their opinions of groups such as ours on the pronouncements of the anti-Christian Southern Poverty Law Center or the ADL, then there is a big problem."
