Nothing about slavery. God bless.
You forgot "Murder babies" and "Promote sinful lifestyles". If your going democrat then be honest and support their most important motives.

We need to end this topic on this thread. It is off topic. If you wish to discuss politics then we need to start a thread in the proper forum. If you have anything worth saying then start one.

Hi, the Democratic party does not murder babies. It would be better to address that to the mothers that make the decision to have abortions. All in this country are guaranteed equal rights under the law, including homosexuals, even if we believe that the lifestyle is against God's will.

Again, nothing about slavery which is related to the topic of this thread since someone said that the Democratic Party supports slavery.

Am i supposed to be Impressed by this woman is one of the most disgusting haughty hearted statements I have read on city data.

If God did not authorize American slavery, could it have happened? If God is truly sovereign, the answer must be in the negative.

We know that certain creatures are capable of committing sin - however, they can only commit the sin that God authorizes, sanctions or empowers them to commit.

Why did God authorize American slavery? Why does God authorize sin of any kind? This all leads to the great age old problem/mystery of evil, doesn't it. I, for one, take great comfort in the fact that the greatest theological minds in all of history have been perplexed by this very question. At least I'm in good company.
First of all I’m not I very religious person, but I do believe in God and that Jesus die for all the people that believes that he die for us, so that we can be save. Excuse my writing and the way I explain myself. After reading some of your post, it’s like reading Paul’s letters.
To me is hard to believe that most of you, really believe god used evil to favor one country, and not only a county but a race,” I’m not black” and how you use the bible(most of you, since most of you agree with the original poster of this thread)to give a kind of approval to slavery and all the despicable actions that comes with it. By saying that it was God’s plan and that somehow America is more worthy and superior, and the chosen ones. The bible wasn’t written by Europeans. All of the men that God used to write the Bible were from Asia. The Bible doesn’t promote one race as being superior to another. In fact, it states: “God is not partial, but in every nation the man that fears him and works righteousness is acceptable to him.”—Act 10:30, 35. “When under trial, let no one say: ‘I am being tried by God.’ For with evil things God cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone.” (James), “Whatever a man is sowing, this he will also reap.” (Galatians 6:7), In the first century C.E., a large tower in Jerusalem fell, killing 18 people. Referring to the victims of this incident, Jesus said: “Do you think they were guiltier than anyone else who lived in Jerusalem? Certainly not!” (Luke 13:4,5), The New American Bible) Jesus knew that the victims were not punished by God. He knew what God’s Word had earlier stated: “Time and unforeseen occurrence befall them all.” (Ecclesiastes 9:11) Many tragedies occur because a victim is in the wrong place at the wrong time or because of human error. For example, reports show that there is much more suffering when people ignore warnings and where buildings are not constructed to withstand severe weather or earthquakes. In such cases, random events affect more people and thus cause more suffering.
Second could anybody tell me who is the ruler of this of the nations of the world other than satan. The Bible states: “The whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one.” That “wicked one” is Satan the Devil, a powerful spirit creature who is described as “the ruler of the authority of the air.” Satan promotes “the spirit that now operates in the sons of disobedience.” Some crimes, such as genocide and child abuse, have been so horrific that many find it hard to attribute them to mere human origin. If satan offered Jesus all the kingdoms of the world, and their glory it means it were his. Do you really think America has been blessed by god? How did you get to that conclusion?, to most of you bless by god=material things.

slavery is not new to the world. it was practiced long b4 africa was discovered by the west.
God had no hand in it at all. what is God like is the refusal to practice slavery.
