    It reveals their hatred of others, and thereby proves that they were not Christians.

    Because they considered God's truth as the enemy.

    Originally

    that exclusiveness

    made the members feel more "special"

    and allowed them to "hate" Catholics

    many of which at the time

    were immigrants

    and/or

    northerners.

    (Lots of Catholic immigrant "surges" in the 1800s and early 1900s)

    Roman Catholicism was considered to be satanic at that time.. It was the Islam of 1880s. There were so many conspiracy theories about Vatican and pope. Evangelicals are still fed so many lies about Catholic Church.

    That's what nativist movements in the US have been ever since the the, "Native American Party" AKA, The now nothing party formed. Yes, to them, they were the true native Americans, not the people who had been here for so much longer. But name a group the KKK hates, and the know nothings were hating them first.

    Protestants are too busy pointing out sins of others to look at their own history soaked with blood. They puff up their chest and pray, "Thank you God I'm not like the rest of humanity"
