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.
