Oh good lord, my hometown newspaper made it to FSTDT. Not that I'm surprised. Just mortified.

Okay, this is the thing, Fundie boy: "slavery' in the Bible in fact refers to EMPLOYED FUCKNIG SERVICE, I.E., SERVANTS - PAID PEOPLE AKA HIRED HELP.
DO NOT THIS TO JUSTIFY SLAVERY. THE BIBLE FUCKING MEANS SERVANTS.
SO FUCK OFF AND DIE.

With an argument like that you're not going to win anyone for your god.

The only reason slavery was tolerated for so long was because it's near impossible to run whole semi-industrial countries without complex machines like those that arose in the Industrial Revolution. Until those arose, slavery was pretty much necessary. Abhorrent, short-sighted, cruel, abominable, yes, but necessary. That's why the archetype of Jesus didn't stop it, that's why America engaged in it, that's why it's been a staple of civilization since the first state-level societies (and possibly earlier).
