Church of the Creator: Creed of Hate

A Moving Experience

Thereafter, in May 1982, COTC announced the construction of new headquarters in Mulberry, North Carolina, three miles from the Georgia state line. Klassen chose the new site because he believed Florida had become too dangerous. "I think South Florida is due for a lot of turmoil when bloody fighting breaks out," he stated. "Actually, I expect the financial collapse of the entire country, and blood will be flowing in the streets."

By 1983, the North Carolina compound was completed, and Klassen opened a post office box in Otto, North Carolina. Now describing himself as COTC's "Pontifex Maximus" (Latin for "high priest"), Klassen began publishing a gutter-level monthly tabloid called Racial Loyalty.

More books later flowed from the Klassen pen. In 1985, COTC published Expanding Creativity, an anthology of articles from Racial Loyalty. The following year saw the publication of a second collection, Building Whiter And Brighter World. In mid-1987, the Church published Rahowa! This Planet is All Ours. The term "rahowa" (taken from .racial holy war) itself was intended to be a COTC battle cry in the group's genocidal quest for world domination. In the book, Klassen declared:

RAHOWA! In this one word we sum up the total goal and program of not only the Church of the Creator, but of the total White Race, and it is this: We take up the challenge. We gird for total war against the Jews and the rest of the goddamned mud races of the world_politically, militantly, financially, morally and religiously. In fact, we regard it as the heart of our religious creed, and as the most sacred credo of all. We regard it as a holy war to the finish_a racial holy war. Rahowa! is INEVITABLE. It is the Ultimate and Only solution. [emphasis in original]

The ominous and threatening tone continued with a dire prediction:

No longer can the mud races and the White Race live on the same planet and survive. It is now either them or us. We want to make damn sure it is we who survive. This planet is from now on all ours, and will be the one and only habitat for our future progeny for all time to come.

In 1991, Klassen codified the "Creator" philosophy in a catechism titled The Little White Book -- clearly, yet astonishingly, inspired by the little red book of Mao-Tse Tung. His final publication, released in 1993, was an autobiographical work, Trials, Tribulations and Triumphs.
