    You can't even follow your own assertions to their rightful conclusions.

    You think you know better than Jesus, and you call ME arrogant?
    Utter absurdity. Like d'oh!
    You are trying to spin.
    It doesn't work the way you are trying to spin.

    The norm was that it was an sin and an abomination. He did not speak out against that. Not at all. It remains so.

    And since it was the norm within the belief, as stated; the persecution of gay folks, in that belief would have been the norm, and he did not speak out against that.
    This is the logical conclusion of what was said and what is more likely, not your arrogant assumptions.

    It may be the norm or isolated. It does not change thew fact that it was his experience.
    Anything else are the manifestations of your own biased thoughts.
    Again in a context. Then versus now. You're just trying to hide from it.

    Wrong. Nor are you in context.



    The last time I checked, "Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare,", had nothing to do with civil-rights.

    Good grief, he was speaking of the black people he knew around him at the time....Why is that so hard for you to understand?

    Nonsense. The quote and the context are linked. Pretend if you want, but don't expect others to pretend with you.

    Didn't they come after civil rights? Think now.

    Yes, in the context of then versus now. Not just memories, but pre civil rights versus post civil rights. That is clearly stated in the article.

    No.
    Some like Social Security came before, some came after.

    Under President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the Social Security Act was enacted in 1935. The act, which was amended in 1939, established a number of programs designed to provide aid to various segments of the population. Unemployment compensation and AFDC (originally Aid to Dependent Children) are two of the programs that still exist today.
