So the people who are against social progress would have been for social progress if they had lived a couple hundred years ago.
I call horseshit. You fucks would have been the ones supporting slavery.
I swear people don't even know what "conservative" means.

Rewriting history again, I see.
So, Tea Partiers either met up with Doc Brown and went back in time to free slaves or Tea Partiers have been out and about freeing all of the modern day slaves?
Smoke crack, do ya?

Even my history teacher would point and laugh at Bry Bry. And I'm in Australia!!

Unitarians and Quakers, asshole. And sharia was not even vaguely involved.
There were evangelists in the movement, but that was mostly in England, and they were /Anglican/ evangelists, not evangelicals. It's actually a huge difference, those few letters. There were some Baptists who were also abolitionists, but they were progressive and liberal pretty much by definition.

hope I live to see the day people like Bryan take credit for ending DADT etc.

I made it all the way to the words "Sharia Law" before I facepalmed.

Still waiting for the day they'll be claiming it was Christians who supported gay rights and evil liberals who opposed them

In 100 years, no doubt they'll claim that evangelical Christians were at the forefront of the movement to grant women and homosexuals equal rights under the law, too.

"Second, the old testament legitimizes slavery as much as the koran. Wasn't there some parable in the new testament about a plank in your face?"
A clue-by-four? :P

I can see that the abolitionists might have likely been Christians, but that doesn't mean that everyone else wasn't.

He just can't help himself he must lie its in his genes.

Let's be fair all, the evangelical community in the United States was, like almost all communities, divided sectionally into Northern and Southern factions.
The Southern evangelicals advocated slavery as the natural and biblical condition of Africans.
BUT the Northern abolition movement did come out of the "Second Great Awakening" among Northern evangelical Christians. Some of the staunchest and earliest abolitionists WERE evangelicals.
But again, it was a SECTIONAL conflict more than a religious one.

If it was for the tea party, we'd start slavery again in a heartbeat!
The slaves would just look differently, they wouldn't all be black (great majority would be) but there would be gays, liberals, atheists, scientists ...

Have you people even read the bible?
10/21/2011 9:19:13 AM
Irony meter busted. Sorry, internet.

Somebody please pie this fuck, I know it would only validate his off the wall paranoia, but it would be so worth it, especially if you got it on camera!

Considering that evangelical faith didn't exist in America prior to the 20th century, I say you're full of crap.
Slavery was considered a right Christian thing to do at the time because many justified it as bringing those poor savages out of heathenism into the Christian fold. The least they owed was their lives and the lives of their children. Some Christians still justify it like that and say that slavery done the Biblical way wasn't bad.

This is a toal BS screed.
And, for the record, when the Ottoman Empire was into slavery, the slaves in question could and would be freed into Janissary status if they converted to Islam.
Considering some of the outright evil things Christians do to get people onside with them, the Ottoman angle just pales by comparison!

I naively thought that the soldiers of the Union army had something to do with ending slavery. And wasn't the Union based in the north and aren't most evangelical Christians based in the south, which supported slavery? Weren't the Christians who called for the end of slavery also based in the north? And isn't the American Family Association based in Mississippi, one of the former confederate states?
I also naively thought that sharia had absolutely nothing to do with the American civil war, and that the Bible nowhere prohibits slavery. Maybe I'm just naive.

Pie him & douse him in glitter!!!

Two things that never happened. One, implementation of sharia law in America(bet he doesn´t know how it works). Second, Slavery was not brought by muslims and ended by tea partiers. It was started by Christians and ended by other christians. Take your facts straight.
10/22/2011 8:16:24 PM
This would be right historically save for the fact sharia law had nothing to do with anything and the tea baggers didn't exist yet.
However, the Evangelicals don't get all the credit.
10/24/2011 9:13:03 AM
Sure, the people who quoted the Bible to justify slavery should be the ones with the credit of abolition of slavery.
And the Ku Kux Klan should have the credit for black people having the right to vote, right?
