    So perhaps it won't be long before WR proscribe certain churches
    Given the widespread racism in the USA I am very doubtful that there are no members of the KKK in the ranks of their players, and that most probably despite them being vocal about their convictions. But you have a valid point, the underlying racism on this side of the Atlantic would certainly mean some form of discrimination against our Muslim brotherhood extremists, even if they were not vocal.

    The old adage «*if your white, you’re alright, if you’re brown stick around, if your black get back!*» I have seen this in action in French Rugby. I don’t subscribe to this way of thinking, however we would be naive to think it isn’t widespread in the Western world.

    NKW wiki isn’t the most reliable source of information. Some of those listed are dangerous sects and not in the slightest bit Christian Churches. Since the whole point is about Rugby being inclusive, then it would be contradictory to exclude people because of their religion.

    Widespread and blatant. Count me as naive. I do live in the Mid West, so that may add to naivety.

    And I'll bet it has become a lot worse since that pile of steaming excrement masquerading as a president has been squatting in The White House.

    Hey, good news. You and IF have found common ground. President Trump meets a couple categories on IF's list of sins that hell is awaiting.

    It’s my understanding that hell categorically refuses to have him, ever! Even if frozen over, there is no place for the likes of that clown. It bad enough to have to share the same planet with the likes of Tonald Drump while we’re alive; don’t condemn us to an eternity in his company, that really would be hell. Anyway, to my certain knowledge he prays, so God can have him.

    Although one kinda suspects Heaven may have gotten wind of what the man is really like and the pearly gates will be barred against him on that fine and fateful day. Which is bad news for all those poor souls in purgatory, as their suffering will be added to then.

    Dickie any chance of asking your Odin-worshipper if Valhalla could use a willing sacrificial victim? A bit plump, but it’s not like they’re obliged to over feed him or anything. What ever happens, don’t let the Buddists get their hands on him, they will simply keep inflicting him on the World, until he changes. (Groundhog day revisited.)

    Just Google «*Neo-Nazis in the Midwest*» you may find it’s a tad more widespread than you imagine, NWK.

    There are 954 total hate groups operating in the United States, according to the Southen Poverty Law Center, including neo-Nazi groups, anti- Muslim groups and anti-immigrant groups, to name a few. They are spread across the country, but there are some regions where they are more prevalent, said Carla Hill, an investigative researcher with the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism. The Midwest – where the TWP hopes to one day set up its whites-only state – is one of those regions.

    There are 14 neo-Nazi groups and nine chapters of the KKK in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana alone, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
