13th September 2008

“Christians were involved in the abolition of slavery, but so were non-religious progressives. The difference is that non-religious progressives didn't spend the generations before abolition making excuses for slavery and justifying its continuation in the way that Christians did, using their holy book as their guide.”

  1. Terence Meaden Says:

    Herein lies an uncomfortable message to instill in the heads of the god-promoters who maintain that the Bible is the word of their god and who talk interminably about the fundamental importance of the Ten Commandments.

    How is it there was no commandment condemning slavery?

    Answer: Because the people who cobbled together the Old Testament never thought of it—seeing nothing abnormal.
