    That would imply a change of focus and would be an undecent thing to do. And since we are discussing objective standards what I do is completely irrelevant. That part of it is obviously difficult for you guys to grasp though I pointed it out numerous times.

    No. YOU can’t say that the SBC was wrong for supporting slavery. Because many slavers justified slave ownership and subsequent segregationist Jim Crow Laws, by appealing to the Word of God, i.e. your source of eternally objective morality, e.g. Titus 2. 9-10.

    Morality is based upon the social values of the day and scripture has historically been adapted to conform to those values. This was true of the Confederate slavers just as it has the case throughout Judeo/Christian history.

    There is NO objective morality and you have not demonstrated otherwise.

    Society cares. It has its own moral code, i.e. firm rules of acceptable and unacceptable behavior. And yes, these rules do change over time, they are demonstrably not absolute or eternal.

    During the Industrial Revolution it was accepted and commonplace for children to work long hours in dangerous factory conditions. Something that would not be tolerated in the developed world today. And it is equally intolerable for children to be locked in cages on the border in today’s world.

    Where is the objective moral code that justifies Trump, whom Evangelicals support, in doing this?

    Neither can you or anyone else since the SBC never took a position in defense of slavery. What you had were individual members, including some leaders, who supported slavery.

    And what percent of the large number of blacks who were in the SBC do you think supported slavery?

    Can you please post a link to any document where the SBC officially came out in support of slavery?

    And I'm sure it is just a coincidence that virtually every supporter of slavery was a Democrat. That should come as no surprise since the party that founded the Ku Klux Klan is still working hard today to keep blacks on their plantation.
