Rights and Religion and History

There were religious leaders who supported slavery because it was included in the Bible. Most of us, except for conservatives in varying degrees (as we saw at CPAC) find slavery unethical and immoral and an unacceptable violation of the rights of human beings.

There were religious leaders who led the Abolitionist movement, just as there are religious leader on the right side of history on this issue. It is the conservative position, religious or otherwise, that is consistently wrong, and which consistently denies rights and liberty, when one looks at history.
