    Not the carp that you tried to assert.
    You do understand personal experience is what we use often to make comparisons? You repeat that like it disputes something. It doesn't. It supports my claim.

    That is not the context.
    That is how the author chose to frame it.
    Phil was not speaking about Pre civil anything. He was speaking about his personal experience.
    There is no connection between what he said and any connotations you wish to absurdly assert.

    It does not support you claim at all.

    The above is nothing more than the manifestations of your biased thoughts.

    Your opinion concerning scripture means nothing to me, and you ought to be ashamed that you are so dishonestly using the bible in your smear of someone who answered the question paraphrasingly accurate. You are trying to use the bible against him, and are ignorant for that reason. That's my opinion.
    I'm a huge fan of the teachings of Christ. I'm just not a hypocrite like most American Christians.

    Nonsense. It's clear that Robertson is saying "Blacks can't handle freedom." What else is he saying, when he says they were happier before civil rights?

    To you, and all with similar arguments - you have taken his quotes and made an extremely generous assessment of them. That's your prerogative. The rest of us will remain appalled.

    Give his personal recollection a break.

    Elvis may have heard the blues being sung 12 years earlier at that age, but I doubt Phil did, or if Phil did, knew what he was hearing.
    so wait - he was working in the cotton fields at the age of 8? seriously? I'm doubting he spent much time out there.

    I remember hearing this as a kid. They cant handle freedom, they was happier when they was slaves. Typical Klanner talk.

    Not even.
    Your assessments of have been way off base and are manifestations of your own biases.

    I didn't say that is when he was. It is a general stating point.
    8 in 54
    9 in 55
    10 in 56
    11 in 57
    12 in 58

    When do you think he was out there working in the cotton field?
    Maybe in the Civil Rights era?
    Are you catching on now?
