"All good men wish the entire abolition of slavery, as soon as it can take place with safety to the public, and for the lasting good of the present wretched race of slaves. The only possible step that could be taken towards it by the convention was to fix a period after which they should not be imported."

--Oliver Ellsworth (The Landholder, 10 December 1787); Reference: The Records of the Federal Convention of 1787, Farrand, ed., vol. 3 (165)

I hate slavery, and I fault those who do not believe in God for this great and grievous sin. Why non-Christians? Because it is in the Bible that God sees all people without favoritism. That is just one reason. There are many.
