Franklin Graham and other evangelists are praising the godly change in a former neo-Nazi and KKK grand dragon who was recently baptized by a black pastor in Florida.
Ken Parker, who just a year ago was joining other white supremacists at the so-called Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, was recently profiled in a NBC News report that examined the radical change in the man’s life.
Parker explained his feelings of wanting to protect his race while he was a part of the Ku Klux Klan. But his attitude began to change after he met Pastor William McKinnon III of All Saints Holiness Church.
Following several conversations, Parker began to see the error of his ways, and was invited by the pastor to the church’s Easter service in April.
The now-former neo-Nazi became a member of the African-American church, repented for what he used to believe, and was embraced by the congregation.
At the end of July, McKinnon baptized him in the Atlantic Ocean, in another major step in Parker’s road to redemption.
“I want to say I’m sorry. I do apologize,” Parker said at the time about all the people he has hurt. “I know I’ve spread hate and discontent through this city immensely — probably made little kids scared to sleep in their own beds in their own neighborhoods.”
The story continues to be praised by evangelists online, including major figures such as Graham, president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
