"The Ku Klux Klan’s like that. I’ll tell you why I never joined the Ku Klux Klan. It’s because they’re anti-semitic. And that’s the only reason I didn’t join. [laughs heartely] I mean, I agree with everything else they say. But the trouble is when you get out that way, that extreme right-wing, you begin to turn against that Jew, and I ain’t gonna turn against that Jew."
There is nothing else Ruckman said about the KKK in the context. The video can be seen on Youtube (the statements can be found at the 22-minute mark). “Dr. Ruckman 1993 Questions and Answers” https://youtu.be/jUC-1D4DTP8
You may think that since Ruckman is against anti-semitism, and the Jews are God's chosen people, that he would speak kindly of them overall (with allowance for disagreements over doctrinal differences of course). But notice what he says two minutes later in the same video, but also how he manages to slip in a suttle jab at another race and we all know who it is:
[24 minute mark] “But, because God chose him you have to love him [the Jew], you have to love him. And if you don't, God will bless them that bless thee, and curse them that curse thee, so you gotta be careful. And it's kinda hard to be careful. I don't know if you have–you don't have a lot of Jews in North Carolina, or at least back in the mountains you don't. And if you do, they behave themselves, 'cause they're kind of outnumbered. But ah, but you take a city Jew, a citified Jew like Chicago, or New York, they are the most repulsive people in this world, man! I guess, out of sight of another group I know of. (chuckles) The closest I ever came to hitting a fella was a Jewish pawn broker in Chicago."
Any child of God who is familiar with the history and reputation of the KKK should be disgusted by Ruckman’s statement that he agrees with everything else the KKK says except for their views on a group that two minutes later he describes as "the most repulsive people in this world" (outside of another group)! This was not a laughing matter, regardless of the race in question. Yet Ruckmanites continue to make light of it (as can be seen by comments below this video on Youtube), such as declaring that it’s no big deal because everyone knows no one is perfect. However—the Bible teaches, “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them” (Romans 16:17). It is high time that the Bible admonition be taken seriously in this matter.
