Actually, um... Paul said there was no Slave and Free. His approval of slavery comes from Timothy, where he tells the runaway slave Timothy to go back to his master. Which was later and most likely written by a ghost writer trying to appeal to the slave heavy Roman Empire. So basically... first Christians before they became Romanized would have not cared for Slavery... or inequality between sexes.
Basically, this is just someone still angry over he Civil War. Usually they go with the States Rights angle, but he's unique for the Slavery one. And they aren't Wehrmacht Leaders... Um, the Unified German Military Leaders cannot exist in the United States... because it's not German mostly. Stop doing Godwins!
Rep might mean Representative or Republican. Though they represent such small districts (There's about 500, either a bit more or less. Memory failure) that it's quite likely that there's people there as retarded as him to vote for him. I totally read it as Rev. Though.

Herp Derp Double Post.
Also, apparently he did get in trouble for saying that bullshit. This is a news post reporting on his stupidity.

Why do these people always skip the First Amendment?

And this is why the bible fails as a guide for morality

It is absolutely futile to argue with a person who thinks Marxism and Fascism are synonymous.

If slavery ain't that bad, why don't you go ahead and volunteer for it?
10/19/2012 8:54:47 AM
Actually you're right, the Bible does not condemn slavery, in fact it fucking regulates slavery in the OT and in the NT Jesus gave specific instructions about following the rules of the society you lived in, and the society he lived in depended on slavery. On top that Jesus' instructions on how to live your life sound a lot of like being a slave to God.
All that means is that the morality of the Bible is in error. Slavery is wrong and anyone who thinks they can justify by dragging up some legislation from 1,000 years before the rise of Rome is wasting our time. And if you're like Rep. Mauch here and thing slavery isn't so bad. Fine, how much? I'll buy you. Oh wait, what's that, you meant slavery for those other people who aren't you? Too bad! If you support or even think contractual slavery wasn't so bad, you should be willing to put yourself up on the market.

This is amusing.

It's true to say that your bible generally supports slavery. The problem is that you are too dumb to recognise that as a bad thing.
It would appear that history isn't your strong point either, nor politics. Do you actually know what a marxist is?

"Nowhere in the Holy Bible have I found a word of condemnation for the operation of slavery, Old or New Testament. If slavery was so bad, why didn’t Jesus, Paul or the prophets say something?"
Every once in a while you're going to need to use something other than the Bible as a standard of behavior.
You know neither the OT nor NT mentions computers, antibiotics or automobiles. If they're so good (and you know you use them all) how come Jesus never mentioned them?

If slavery was so bad, why didn’t Jesus, Paul or the prophets say something?
How about "love your neighbor as yourself?"

I like this guy... Not for his slavery ideas but because well, if you claim moral is objective then slavery will always be moral and good and this guy stands by his belief.
As crazy as the beliefs are, at least he is not practicing for the Rio Olympics in mental acrobatics!
10/19/2012 11:57:23 AM
Wait, marxist Wehrmacht leaders?
I had no idea!
Let me guess, Hitler was a jew, too?
Also, your first paragraph just shows what is wrong with your favourite piece of fiction...

Nowhere in the Holy Bible have I found a word of condemnation for speeding. I told that to the trooper. He was singularly unimpressed.
10/19/2012 1:37:33 PM
Very good Loy. Maybe now you'll understand why we don't hold your bible in anything approaching esteem.
I don't need a book to tell me what's right and what's wrong. Intelligent people can make up their own moinds about that.
10/19/2012 2:03:04 PM
Say hello to Loy:
I don't know, that beard looks pretty marxist to me. I bet he's a fifth column communist trying to discredit the South from within. As if the South needed any help being discredited.
10/19/2012 2:13:28 PM
Wow, Lincoln was a Marxist? All this time I thought he was a Republican.
10/19/2012 2:26:15 PM
Rabbit of Caerbannog
Yes, Lincoln and Grant. Notorious Marxists.

The Crimson Ghost
Get back to us when you don't have a laughably stupid name.
And good job making the south look like a buncha ignoramuses; again. Sometimes I wonder if the north actually lost the war; seeing as how we seem to be carrying the south-as we have been for the past 150 years.
Apologies to the rational southerners out there.
10/19/2012 4:44:36 PM
And I'm persuaded by the voice of reason that all of you assholes are bat-shit fucking crazy.
10/19/2012 7:03:36 PM
He's right about one thing. Claiming that slavery is evil, and claiming that the Bible is the ultimate authority of right and wrong, are mutually exclusive positions because the BIble does in fact condone slavery.
Now if only more moderate Christians would do the right thing and drop the religion altogether instead of constantly lying by pretending their modern nicer morality is something you can derive from reading the Bible.
Fundies are bad, but at least they lay it all out on the line so that what is bad about them is obvious. The moderate types will lie, and tell this Rep. Loy Mauch that the Bible does not in any way condone slavery when it emphatically DOES.
It makes it very frustrating to present the rational argument against using Christianity for morality when you get squeezed from both sides - on the one hand you have the fundies claiming the falsehood that the bible is true, and on the other hand you have the moderates claiming the falsehood that the bible is nice.

Because the bible is totally obsolete, and those who wrote the stupid thing were reflecting social values which the civilized world left behind many moons ago.
Oh, and in civilized countries elected officials above the rank of dog catcher are usually expected to know that Wehrmacht leaders were the very opposite of Marxists.

Lovely. He's even standing in front of a Confederate flag.

@ Filin De Blanc
How long before they start suggesting witch-burnings?
You're a bit late to that party. Several Republican figures came out in support of the "rise of Christian values in Africa" in response to a growing trend of state-sponsored public burnings of small children as witches.
