He sounds awful. No wonder he's so bitter.

Does he cruse parking meters?
I heard he stays locked in the room he scrounges from his uncle while living on social security handouts to buy his cheap cigarettes and food stamps. Several years ago he had a confrontation over a drug deal that went bad and he was slightly injured which caused a slight facial disfigurement. Like the true scrounger you are likely to read about in the guardian and the sun he has been milking it ever since.
This sad lifestyle has made him bitter which worsened after his wife first cuckolded him and then left (taking their children) so she could spend more time screwing her lover without the barea$$ bitching
He is now too bitter to show his face in the street to the extent that he is no longer welcome door knocking along with his Jehovah’s wet nurse ex buddies and the only pleasure he now gets in life is showing his bitterness and lying behind the anonymity of topix
What an excuse for a man…

The largest slave trade in the history of the world was created by Christian European nations. This is a fact.

It is also a fact that the Bible has many verses defending slavery.

In America before the Civil War, the majority of evangelical Christians were totally convinced that "their personal relationship with Jesus Christ" authorized them to own slaves.

Some evangelical factions in recent times did oppose the slave trade. In England they helped abolish it in the early 19th century. The radical abolitionist John Brown defended his raid at Harper's Ferry, Virginia in 1859 as an act against slavery born out of his Christian conviction.OLD TESTAMENT slavery

"Cursed be Canaan! The lowest of slaves will he be to his brothers. He also said,'Blessed be the Lord, the God of Shem! May Canaan be the slave of Shem. May God extend the territory of Japheth; may Japheth live in the tents of Shem and may Canaan be his slave'. " -- Genesis 9:25-27

"If you buy a Hebrew slave, he is to serve for only six years. Set him free in the seventh year, and he will owe you nothing for his freedom. If he was single when he became your slave and then married afterward, only he will go free in the seventh year. But if he was married before he became a slave, then his wife will be freed with him. If his master gave him a wife while he was a slave, and they had sons or daughters, then the man will be free in the seventh year, but his wife and children will still belong to his master. But the slave may plainly declare,'I love my master, my wife, and my children. I would rather not go free.' If he does this, his master must present him before God. Then his master must take him to the door and publicly pierce his ear with an awl. After that, the slave will belong to his master forever." -- Exodus 21:2-6

"When a slave owner strikes a male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies immediately, the owner shall be punished. But if the slave survives a day or two, there is no punishmen

British who happen to be Christian.

They also had mustaches.

The slave trade had nothing to do with religion.

Note the word "trade" in "slave trade".

It was a money making venture, mostly, an English venture.

Do you want to pretend slavery was not practiced by every ethic group in the history of time?

I see...

So some Christians opposed slavery and some supported it, and the vast majority never ever owned any slaves anyway.

So we have it: some people who were Christians opposed slavery and some owned it, and the bible reflected the fact that there was slavery- it was commonplace- a few thousand years ago.

Of course, in the US, the people in the NORTH largely opposed slavery and the people in the SOUTH endorsed it... and both were almost exactly the same makeup 'religiously' as the other.

Which would mean: it had to do with politics rather than religious beliefs.

Joseph was born of a miracle birth Gen 30:22
Jesus was born of a miracle birth Mathew 1:18
Joseph had as many brothers as Jesus did disciples.
"Judah" suggested the sale of his brother Joseph Gen 37:26
"Judas" one of the disciples sold Jesus Mathew 26:14-16
Joseph was sold for 20 pieces of silver.( which was the price of a boy from the ages of 5 - 20) Leviticus 27:5
Jesus was sold for 30 silver pieces
Joseph was 30 when he started his work Gen 41:46
Jesus was 30 when he started his work Luke 3:23,, oh look the same story

When Charles Darwin wrote "On the Origin of Species", slavery was illegal in Britain yet legal in America. Your civil war hadn't even happened yet.
