First, you have to look at our way of thinking compared to those in biblical times...They did not see it as morally wrong at all...Thus every nation had slaves...They did not think like we do now AT ALL...Intellectualism has given rise to debate over whether slavery should be considered moral and outlawed...A HUGE portion of this debate has to do with our constitution and interpreting the law which states all men are created equal...You see, it wasn't based on the Bible that Christians decided slavery was not moral, it was based on our constitution...Christ also taught to submit yourselves to those in power and to the laws which are in place...At the time, no laws were established condemning slavery no matter how bad you thought it was...In recent times we HAVE established laws stating that slavery is outlawed and thus as Christians we must follow the laws of our land...

Funny how fundies defending slavery always envision themselves owning slaves. Even tho they always talk about how slavery wasn't so bad, you never see them volunteering to BE slaves. Why is that?

First of all, Ruhe, you massive fucking dumbass, many nations decided that slavery was immoral before we wrote our fucking constitution. Second, that whole \"all men are created equal\" thing appears in the Declaration of Independence, not the US Constitution, and had no fucking legal standing, as is sadly shown by the fact that the US happily soldiered on for almost a bloody fucking century as a nation in a huge bloody chunk of which some people were quite literally worth only 3/5 of other people.

I thought they didn't like moral relativism?

So if we made a law that outlawed stupid fundies and had them submit to execution, would you suddenly follow that law? You can't have it both ways; either you follow your stupid book all the time, or not at all.

This seems to fall under "If it's not illegal, it must be moral".

The bible does not state that slavery is wrong, thereby giving it implicit approval. Another reason why the bible is man-made bullshit.

Good to see that fear of God's Law is not the only thing keeping the fundies moral...

... the Law of "Cæsar" seems also to work...

So...slavery isn't immoral because Christianity determines it to be immoral, it's just immoral because the laws at our time say it is. Makes sense.
