How Christians Ended Slavery

In his latest column, Dinesh D'Souza points out that the end of slavery began with Christians. In his book  What's So Great About Christianity  he goes into this claim in even more detail. Now, while it may be common knowledge that Americans justified their belief that blacks were inferior with the Bible, slavery was not and is not peculiar to America. And as shocking as it sounds, slavery still exists today in Africa, India, Sudan, and the Dominican Republic, see  Slavery in the Modern World  by Rico Villanueva Siasoco. D'Souza's column can be found  here .

My Blog on Faith

Because my mind is constantly wandering around the spiritual aspects of my humanity, I've decided to create this blog as a separation of thought from my other blog . I will use the space here for various posts related to my faith, from expounding on principles of the Gospel to the defense of my beliefs and my faith from attacks that have been directed either to me or to the Church of which I'm proud to be a member, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I will also share gospel scholarship that I encounter from time to time. As is my style, some posts may be mere redirections to thoughts by others of which I place my endorsement. I hope that this blog will be a source of good, as the world could use more good.
