Arkansas State Rep Defends Slavery

I don’t even know what to say… This type of crazy is what we’re up against.

 “If slavery were so God-awful, why didn’t Jesus or Paul condemn it, why was it in the Constitution and why wasn’t there a war before 1861? The South has always stood by the Constitution and limited government. When one attacks the Confederate Battle Flag, he is certainly denouncing these principles of government as well as Christianity.”

- Arkansas state Rep. Roy Mauch in a letter to the Democrat-Gazette. Think Progress also notes Mauch has previously called slavery “a blessing in disguise” for African Americans.
