Oh, for Pete's sake!<quoted text>
Maybe you're just not listening to Him.
"Early Christians, such as the fourth-century Greek theologian Gregory of Nyssa, developed radical critiques of slavery and sexual coercion. In fact, according to Oklahoma historian Kyle Harper, Gregory was the first person ever to have argued for the basic injustice of slavery. The same high view of human nature and freedom that inspired Gregory leads Coptic Christians in Egypt today to fight for the rights of all people in the current constitutional drafting process, including the rights of atheists. And it leads Christians in India often joining with non-Christians to battle against untouchability and the sexual enslavement of women and children ..."
I wonder what source would have inspired an ancient Christian theologian to critique slavery and sexual coercion?
Now you post a reference to 4th Century papal arguments against slavery and sexual coercion that appears to be a beginning of a "radical" awakening?
You mean Gregory expressed a view that went against the status quo, which status quo had been condoned by previously written scripture?
Can't you just admit that you have been wrong about this throughout this thread - until you found these references to Gregory and the Coptics?
Sheesh! Man, you are dense.
