Slavery in the Bible is Disingenuous

Slavery in the Bible is Disingenuous

Matt was very triggered in this video.   Not the presentation I would prefer, but he made points that I have made using examples I have used and got the kind of response I have witnessed.   In spite of Matt's often emotional presentation, this video has a lot to offer. Matt Dillahunty's bio , by the way: I was raised in a loving, Southern Baptist home and was a fundamentalist...
Jun 26 4:52pm @4.2.72 Yes and no, depending on who you read and trust. However, that is a whole other set of case-making unto itself, having little if any to do with slavery and morality, in my opinion.
Jun 26 3:41pm @4.2.70 And yet, here we are after thousands of years of faith!

This is, if I remember correctly, the EIGHTH time I have posted this article on Newstalkers, although not always as a seed. There , sadly, has been a relatively frequent need to post it, because there seems to be a never ending supply of republicans and conservatives who don't understand it and go off giving misinformation. It has been happening the past few days again. I won't name names,...

One of the Biggest Arguments Against Reparations Is Based on a Lie

One of the Biggest Arguments Against Reparations Is Based on a Lie


Via: JohnRussell  •  167 comments  •  yesterday
.....But maybe the most insidious myth underlying Johnson’s anti-reparations argument is the idea that white people are winning the proverbial “foot race” without institutional help. This would be news to the beneficiaries of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal, for example, the spoils of which were denied to most black Americans as a concession to white segregationist congressmen....

Donald J. Trump Presidential Library
