I should have guessed that you'd figure out a way to disparage MLK in some snide little way. I'm trying to recall the courageous opposition shown by Catholic clerics and laity first toward slavery, then toward Jim Crow and legalized segregation into the 1960s in Catholic areas of Louisiana, Mississippi and South Alabama, and seem to be drawing a blank.
Can you tell me the great efforts made by the vast majority of Southern Catholics toward the end of segregation? Thanks.

But if the Pope had directed them to oppose it (segregation; Jim Crow) you'd have been crowing about his next orders to "redistribute the wealth," "support unions," and blah, blah, blah. With you it's damned if you do and damned if you don't. You aren't interested in debate, but mere gainsaying. V's wife.
