2. ...

“In every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty. He is always in alliance with the despot, abetting his abuses in return for protection to his own.” -- Thomas Jefferson

3. Daniel and Phillip Berrigan.

Maryknoll Sisters and Priests.

Liberation theology.

The example of Jesus.

Jefferson, the defender of liberty, owned, bought, and sold slaves.

4. The Bible says it's ok

You got a problem with the Bible?

5. People are not a monolithic bloc.

And saying that "the Bible says it is okay" ignores the fact that most of any class of people does not practice intolerance.

6. Tell that to a gay person.

Franklin Graham represents a pretty sizable block. Besides, back in Jefferson's day, slavery wasn't considered intolerant by the majority.

9. Because the bible sanctioned slavery

Hard to imagine slavery surviving as long as it did without biblical support and regulation. Meanwhile at least Jefferson experienced cognitive dissonance about slavery. There’s no indication anyone in the bible did. Jesus had not one bad word to say about it, even sexual slavery. The same goes for pederasty. Both were extremely common in the first century, even by rabbis.

7. The King of Whataboutism has arrived!

Stay on topic, g. Don't be hypocritical. That's why you struggle to be taken seriously.

10. Oh yeah, sorry, I forgot.

You get to whatabout, but how very dare anyone even bring up a tangential topic on one of your threads.

Is this how you really think Jesus wants you to act, g?

11. It is all about your narrative.

And when fact contradicts that narrative, the scientific method would dictate abandoning the faulty narrative.

12. When you start presenting some actual facts, I'll happily change my narrative.

Still waiting on that, though.

14. And the example of China?

Anecdotal evidence? A fringe movement?
