Who Said That?

question%20mark.jpgWho said that?

"Slavery as it existed in the South was not an adversarial relationship with pervasive racial animosity. Because of its dominantly patriarchal character, it was a relationship based upon mutual affection and confidence. . . . There has never been a multi-racial society which has existed with such mutual intimacy and harmony in the history of the world."

Arnold Murray?

I'm assuming it's a theologian/pastor. If not I can think of a couple of historians that might qualify.

I believe that was Jeffeson Davis (and I think Wilson quoted him approvingly).

Wow. Thats troubling. I knew Wilson only from the recent Hitchens debate, and some FV research.

i was going to say doug wilson for kicks and grins. but then it seemed to me that, even though i like irony and smart-aleckness more than the next guy, it was sort of below the belt in a lack-of-integrity kind of know, associating a slam-dunk majority morality distilled over time (read: "human slavery bad in every time and place and everyone who participated was dim, dumb and evil") with the rotten-ness of FV. i am no sympathizer with FV one whit, but such an association seems really transparent, fabricated and weak; FV should be taken to task on its own merits, not its associations to easy, contemporary moralities as if there is a natural link--that's like saying those who argue for reproductive rights are necessarily pro-slavery (are you listening, john piper?).

...still, that said, how about doug wilson? tee-hee.

Pope Doug Wilson - Moscow Idaho, on "Me, Myself, and God are One" juice....which he dips into on a regular basis.

Doug Wilson. I believe it's from a pamphlet he co-wrote with someone else.

DW, and not the nice girl on that wonderful PBS show, but in fact the viscious Douglas Wilson, Ah Southern Slavery as it Was. May I reccomend an even better read, Southern Slavery as it Wasn't written in response to Wilson's slavery craziness.
