Johnny Lee Clary, once an imperial wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, was recently ordained a minister of Church of God in Christ, the largest black denomination in America. Bishop George D. McKinney, who ordained him, was quoted as saying Clary has been authorized to conduct evangelism campaigns and to engage in the ministry of racial reconciliation. Clary said, “I’ve learned that good friends come in all colours. I believe I have something to contribute in the area of racial reconciliation. I’m going to spend the rest of my life building bridges and bringing people together.” Unable to keep a job because of his Klan history, depressed and broke, he decided to commit suicide. Clary put one bullet in his gun. “I saw a Bible sitting there,” he said, “and thought maybe I could get forgiveness before I killed myself.” But, by the time the night was over and he had read a part of the Bible, he made a decision to follow Christ. Bishop McKinney said “the colour line was washed away in the Blood of Jesus.”
