Bryan Fischer makes utterly false claims on his show every day. His latest is that evangelical Christians were the ones who ended slavery, saying, “It was faith that motivated the abolitionists.” Well yes, for many of them it was (but hardly all of them). But it was also faith that motivated the slaveholders and the secessionists of the South.
And of course, the secessionists were right. The Bible does support slavery in every possible way. There are dozens of verses in support of slavery and not a single one in opposition to it. And the overwhelming weight of institutional Christianity at the time was in support of slavery. This is the same pattern we always see, where Christianity is overwhelmingly on the wrong side of every social justice issue until the progressives win those battles and public opinion shifts, then they find a handful of Christians that they would have savaged as heretics on the right side and say, “See, this was a Christian idea all along.” In 30 years they’ll be claiming that Christianity led the fight for gay rights, I guarantee it.
