Christian blood libel against science again, I see.

When pro-slavery types were called upon to justify their position, they always went to the Bible. Why is that?

Could it be that the Bible explicitly allows slavery? See Ephesians 6.

The Bible does not expressly prohibit slavery. In the light of eternity, slavery was a very secondary issue. However, it was primarily Christians that caused its abolition.
