PBS Series Depicts American Abolitionists as Fired by Faith

As the nation marks the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, PBS premieres The Abolitionists, a three-part series, on Tuesday.

Documentarian Rob Rapley, the writer and director of the series, talked with Religion News Service about the role religion played in the lives of the abolitionists.

PBS had an interesting video of Dr. Livingstone on just very recently, I would think many of you could see it right on your t.v. However, you can also see it on the Internet, The Lost Diary of Dr. Livingstone (Video) where I just saw it. A very interesting show, only an hour long.

Dr. Livingstone had some personal backsliding, but overcame them and helped stopped a lot of the slave trade in Africa, at least the southern part of it. Unlike John Brown, he was not a wacko, and helped enlightened the European and American world what was happening in Africa.

The only State's Right the South really cared about was their alleged right to deprive blacks of their rights. Don't believe me? Read the 1861 Ordinances of Secession & Stevens' Cornerstone Speech, instead of postwar Lost Cause balderdash. Slavery & racial subjugation was the whole point. Even Northerners didn't want black neighbors & job competition; that's why African colonization was taken seriously for awhile, & why Liberia was founded.

BTW, the only famous abolitionist with orthodox Christian beliefs seems to have been John Brown, a Calvinist (mentioned in the article). I know he was a murderer, yet he was so crazy, such a nutjob, he actually treated blacks & Indians like social equals, as Scripture demands. The rest were Transcendentalist flakes who game him only spotty support, & still held to moronic racial theories.

No doubt those sermons mentioned have good thoughts about how to view slavery. I would suggest reading Philemon 1 My pastor has started his study of Book of Philemon Introduction to Philemon which you might want to follow in the coming weeks.

But many of the slaveholders kept the ability to read and thus the Word from their slaves, by the way, Frederick Douglas wasn't mistreated in that way.

It's an interesting article that SA picked, while the Abolitionists were men of faith and so were many of the slaveholders, many of those weren't Christian. Many of the slaveholders were Catholic or Anglican and many of the Abolitionists were Unitarian as such. They weren't Christian to begin with.

Anyway, that particular matter as well as those of unbounded States' Rights has also been settled.
