Slavery and the Bible: "Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ. Eph.6:5"
And that's the New Testament!
Our New York State Senator, James L. Seward, is against gay marriage. Like most bigots, I assume he uses the Bible as his defense for discriminating against people based on their sexual orientation. Since Senator Seward wants to use the Bible as a basis for our laws, I'm anxious to hear his forthcoming defense of slavery.
