109. Hah..yeah, OK...."context"
That sounds a lot like RW Fundies picking and choosing shit out of the Bible, rearranging, shining, gilding, and then presenting it as truth to justify their own prejudices.

It's only really "bigotry" when it involves intolerance toward people we think deserve it.

Like old people in nursing homes who may or may not have a brain disease, but people automatically assume the person is a "bigot" and laugh at her plight.

If it's their relative in that situation, it would probably be a rant against the staff person who, in spite of any orders not to do so, failed to pick the person up off the floor.

Context. Yep...I got it.
