Your slave is not your neighbor, retard. He is your property.

If you CANT do that, then you have NOTHING and are wrong...there is no question or argument that would prove otherwise. Pitting a generalization about basic righteous living against statements SPECIFICALLY condoning slavery does not make you right. It makes you illogical.
So which is it, easy? Can you explain why those who wrote the bible believed slavery was OK...even years after jesus was dead...or not?

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. —Samuel Adams
