Earliest Official Protest Against Slavery in the US Cites Jesus' Words - When Faith Gives Reason a Back Rub

Earliest Official Protest Against Slavery in the US Cites Jesus’ Words

Jesus and abolition

In 1688 the first offical protest against slavery in America was penned in Germantown and cited Jesus’ words (which are found in the in the Bible) as a reason for opposing slavery. This is another example showing just how simplisitic and false is the claim that faith is what is wrong in the world. It seems to me that it is a serious question whether or not we would have seen the abolition of slavery in Britain or in the US without faith.
