Jennifer Roback Morse of the Ruth Institute is a very confused woman. First, she thinks that Christianity “put a stop to” slavery. Second, she thinks that the sexual revolution, and especially LGBT equality, are bringing slavery back. Because that’s a totally rational thing to say.
In a lecture to the Alliance Defending Freedom’s Blackstone Legal Fellowship, Morse explained that while Christianity ended slavery, the sexual revolution is now bringing it back.
“All of these issues — divorce and remarriage, abortion and infanticide, slavery, the buying and selling of human beings — all of these things, the Christian religion put a stop to. But they’re all on their way back because of the sexual revolution,” she said. “The sexual revolution is bringing back all of these points.”
“We, in fact, are on the right side of history,” she said.
History called, it wants its reality back. The overwhelming weight of institutional Christianity was on the side of slavery, not just in this country but around the world (so was Islam) for centuries. And how on earth you think that has anything to do with any “sexual revolution” (by which I think she means “allowing people to do things with their own bodies that I don’t like”) is beyond me. This is wingnut-speak.

Oh, and of course she and her fellow bigots are just like those who fought against Hitler.
