But when I show them that to hold bondmen forever is ordained by God

When the abolitionists proclaim “man-stealing” to be a sin, and show me that it is so written down by God, I admit them to be right, and shudder at the idea of such a crime. But when I show them that to hold “bondmen forever” is ordained by God, they deny the Bible, and set up in its place a law of their own making.
~ James H. Hammond (January 28, 1845)
