gists for slavery ever thought of this? They are apologizing for the dark age. Have the ministers of the sacred office at the south, who interpret the Bible in support of slavery, ever thought that they are preaching a doctrine first invented by a bishop of the Romish church?

Let this point then, stand in bold relief to the view of the world. And let it be fairly understood that the American slave-holder and his apologists are patrons of Rome and the dark age!

Let it be particularly borne in mind by ministers, churches, and deacons at the north, that American slavery, against which we are now contending, is an invention of the dark age. Who goes for it then, must know that he goes for the dark age. Who apologizes for it apologizes for the dark. Can any wonder then, that the spirit of slavery hides God and truth from the understanding, when it comes under the damning and accumulated darkness of the dark age.
