yes yes, the outfits worn by the nazarenos look like KKK outfits... but they are a Spanish Catholic tradition that predates the KKK by almost a thousand years.

And they come in more colors than just white...

Um I have to agree. If that came to my front door. I wouldn't answer the door with a bible in my hand.

Well they don't go to anyone's doors, that is only worn for these giant processions they have during Holy Week. It's pretty impressive if you ever get a chance to see one.

I dunno, that first pic is pretty creepy. I think they might want to scrap that tradition.

That's just the pic, in person it is impressive... maybe a little creepy but impressive.

Underneath the outfits are normal folk, just like you and I.
