Leaders at Cary Christian School say they are not condoning slavery by using “Southern Slavery, As It Was,” a booklet that attempts to provide a biblical justification for slavery and asserts that slaves weren’t treated as badly as people think.
Here are some excerpts from the book:
* “Slave life was to them a life of plenty, of simple pleasures, of food, clothes, and good medical care.” (page 25)
* “But many Southern blacks supported the South because of long established bonds of affection and trust that had been forged over generations with their white masters and friends.” (page 27)
* “Nearly every slave in the South enjoyed a higher standard of living than the poor whites of the South — and had a much easier existence.” (page 30)
A bill by Rep. Gerald Allen, R-Cottondale, would prohibit the use of public funds for “the purchase of textbooks or library materials that recognize or promote homosexuality as an acceptable lifestyle.” Allen said he filed the bill to protect children from the “homosexual agenda.”
