Doug Wilson Loves Slavery

Doug Wilson Loves Slavery February 6, 2020

A quick one today.  Stumbled over Doug Wilson’s lengthy self-justification for saying nasty things and others having to scoot away from him. Much like normal folks scoot away from the lone ranting idiot on the subway car that smells of urine and madness. Read it if you must have your daily dose of word salad.

Then there is this, with quotations that he disputes. We’ve seen him say all of these things.

Jesus wept.

    I appreciate what you are doing here, and I admire your courage in the face of people like this guy.

    I had first written a sarcastic post about his quote… but I simply couldn’t send it. Sarcasms is too weak to describe my feelings right now, and it is not in my character to openly rage.

    So just: thank you. Keep it up. Keep going. Keep fighting. Be positive. Be someone of those who keep us sane.

  • (((J_Enigma32)))

    Wilson is a typical Trumpist. I wonder if he accuses Democrats of being the “real racists.” He probably does.

  • Rational Human

    “Slavery developed real affection between the races…”

    I guess in racist misogynistic minds, obedience under threat of violence = real affection? I really feel bad for his wife and kids.

  • Raging Bee

    I think he means all the sexual favors slaves had to provide their owners. That’s the ONLY way I can make that assertion sound even remotely plausible. I mean, Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemmings were pretty “affectionate,” right?

  • Desperate Ambrose
  • AFo

    Doug still misses the point entirely. Slaves were property; their owners did not consider them people. Then again, Doug seems to feel the same about anyone who isn’t a white, straight Christian man, so maybe he does get it…

  • Raging Bee

    He certainly seems to want it, whether or not he gets it.

  • Friend

    Let’s pose the Ken Ham Dinosaur Challenge Question to pro-slavery1 Doug Wilson:

    Were you there?

  • Randy Meyer

    Harriet Tubman, running away and helping numerous others do the same because of their love for slavery. Yep, makes total sense.
    Other things people misunderstand:
    Children suing the RCC because of their love of God.
    Homeless people begging for money because of their love of wealth.
    The President lying every minute because of his love of the truth.

  • persephone

    Even the Christians that admit that slavery involved abuse will still justify it on the grounds that the slaves were converted to Christianity, and, while their bodies might suffer, their souls were saved.

  • Jim Jones

    I see he’s from Idaho, the state whose policy about child abuse is, “Good luck, kids”!

  • Friend

    Sure, but fortunately that’s a tiny percentage of Christians. Doug Wilson is an outlier. Tragic that anybody listens to that fossil.

  • Saraquill

    If he likes it so much, let’s throw him in a green dress and call him Martha Doug.

  • Saraquill

    Likewise, J. Marion Sims sticking an awl into enslaved infants’ skull5 was “an act of love.”

  • Aimee Shulman

    I’m always curious how the slavery apologists explain the fact that these supposedly happy, harmonious slaves who had so many benefits in their lives just kept on running away, even at great risk and with great difficulty, some of them multiple times after getting caught.

  • persephone

    He’s not an outlier with the Baptists, and it’s not a tiny percentage.

  • Friend

    He’s not an outlier with the Baptists? Yikes. At least they are losing members.

    As for the tiny percentage, I’ve spent an unfortunate amount of time with RWNJs. They are racists1 and in denial about the evils1 of slavery1, but I can’t think of anyone actually justifying it. Do you mean for the present, or with reference to the past (“that’s how things were”)?

  • Annette G.

    But they were considered property and not human. Did they even have a soul to be saved?

  • persephone

    Some said no. Some said yes. If yes, they often used the Curse of Ham to justify the abuse.

  • persephone

    There’s the SBC, which is really bad. Then there’s the IFB, which manages to be even worse; they’re pretty much Gilead.

  • Friend

    Thanks, Persephone. Always appreciate your insights.

  • Jennifer

    Yeah, no Christians I know, thank God. But they’re out there.

  • Jennifer

    GWTW showed favored house slaves more than anything else, much like the Washington’s slaves. But even they had no choice in their situations and followed orders, and Martha W.’s “Oney” eventually ran away like so many others. Scarlett slapping the girl she was displeased with was a small example of how little hesitation, if any, there was in whites showing violence against slaves or blacks in general.

  • Jennifer

    Yeah, they even got free ship rides to America with “safety chains” keeping them safe. How lucky.

  • lady_black

    LOL.
