Watch PBS series The Abolitionists?

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/fi...
I am not a Christian fundamentalist but a lot of abolitionists were.

The Abolitionists will be shown in public school classes on dvd.

Excellent series.

Shows John Brown in Church dedicating his life to abolishing slavery.

Enjoy!

Meanwhile thousands of Christians fought to continue slavery even quoting scripture to back up their reasoning.

Truth hurts.

And thousands of atheists also fought to continue slavery. After all in atheism there is nothing wrong with slavery.

God had some specific instructions for the Sabbath and you keep them everyday? You never cook or Clean? Or is it that you are ignorant to what it means to keep the sabbath holy?

Cherry picking atheists.

Pictures, paintings or statues are fine to have - so long as they're not worshipped.

Oh please. Every Christian cherry-picks what parts of the Bible they accept or reject. And when it contradicts itself, which side of the contradiction they prefer.

I can't speak of every Christian and neither can you.

He either ignorantly or deceitfully twisted scripture.

Atheists seem to do that a lot.
