Hypothetical: the KKK opens a church where they preach slavery and inferior races. I’m a photographer and I join. Do I now have the right to say no to taking pictures of people based off their race?

You should have the right to do or not do business with whosoever you please, as long as the agreement is mutual.

No but you have the right to decide what kinds of engagements you do. Maybe you don't offer photographic services for certain kinds of events.

If you don't do pornography because you find it offensive you can decline those engagements.

The KKK is not a religion

They are religious and base much of their hate using Christianity as a reason (as a Christian I find this offensive) and they can open a church.

They’re a white supremacy group that attempts to claim to be a Christian-based org but have been publicly denounced by most every Christian church.

But answering the poll question, yes, you could choose not to photograph people of color of you wish. To be honest, you shouldn’t have to join a group to choose your subjects anyway. Freedom of association. Only fascists choose to force you against your will.

Wino ... the KKK is more a Democrat hate group than a Christian group, but “nice” try!

Until the 1980s they absolutely were. The KKK was founded by Dixie-crats as part of the Christian Democrats in the south. They WERE all Dixie-crats until they 1980s when they became Republicans. Even a former grand wizard served as a Republican in office. They are considered a “far right” extreme group.

Wino ... keep that delusion alive! The KKK is a Democrat hate group. The group has consistently been rejected by the Republican Party.

😂That must be why David Duke (grand wizard) was a Republican Representative in Louisiana and endorsed Trump. Whatever you need to tell yourself in order to sleep at night.

Wino ... that’s a lie that only resonates in leftist echo chambers! MrT never endorsed David Duke. In fact, the only candidate that didn’t denounce the KKK endorsement in the 2016 election was Mrs Clinton! MrT rejected the KKK endorsement. Why didn’t Mrs Clinton?

NO ONE, literally no one, on the right or Republicans supported David Duke. However, speaking of Grand Wizards, the Democrats had an active KKK member serving in Congress, the longest serving Senator actually, until 2010. Robert Byrd.

KS ... Robert Byrd was Mrs Clinton’s mentor!

David Duke literally represented the party as a representative.
I’ll give you that Byrd started off as a complete racists ~$$, but he changed his ways. If your going to give me someone, make it someone who didn’t agree with the NAACP or who endorsed passing a holiday for MLK.
From Wiki:
For the 2003–2004 session, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)[70] rated Byrd's voting record as being 100% in line with the N.A.A.C.P.'s position on the thirty-three Senate bills they evaluated...Upon news of his death, the NAACP released a statement praising Byrd, saying that he "became a champion for civil rights and liberties" and "came to consistently support the NAACP civil rights agenda".[72]

Wino ... David Duke literally does NOT represent the Republican Party.

Lol, he was a Grand Wizard! You think he completely turned tail? He led his local KKK chapter and voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act, along with most of the Dems.

If you consider your service an accommodation that serves the public then you do not have the right to make that decision based on race.

For the record:
I don’t think the KKK has an official church though who knows in Lincoln and such.
If they did I would never join.
I’m not a professional photographer.

Did they claim religious affiliation for protection?
