Robert Price On Christianity And Slavery
The Christian Delusion often raises objections to Christianity based on the religion's treatment of slavery. One of the contributors to the book, Robert Price, recently discussed the issue with a Christian scholar, David Instone-Brewer, on the Unbelievable? radio program (June 19, 2010). I don't agree with every comment made during the program, and some significant issues were neglected, but both Price and Instone-Brewer make many good points. Price criticizes some of the simplistic approaches taken by his fellow skeptics, in addition to criticizing some simplistic Christian arguments. He's much more reasonable about this subject than he is about a lot of others related to Christianity.
