This is evil. I know plenty of people with down syndrome and they are some of the nicest people Iβve ever met. They have the gift to forgive easily, always think the best of someone, and just always ware a smile.
John for Jesus, the wars main point was not slavery! The north had the only ports for trading goods such as cotton. Not only that they had the only βrightsβ. The south was being taxed unjust amounts, goods being bought at low prices, and then the north would turn around and sell it for double to the East! Yes slavery was wrong. Yes the south was going to keep their slaves, also wrong. But ol Abe being an opportunist took advantage of this and told slaves they could be freed if the north won. (More troops for the north). The day and age these people lived in very few gave any thought to slavery being wrong. Even though in most all cases it was.

The clueless ones are those who somehow justify burning down a building being built with 189 apartments for low income folks. The clueless ones are those who burn down their own neighborhood grocery stores. The clueless ones are those who justify stealing televisions as a response to the anger they supposedly feel about bad cops. Mindless, selfish, and greedy acts have nothing to do with racism.

For the Christian itβs great news that our God is alive and powerful, but for the unrepentant... Our God is so alive and powerful, that his grace can reach into the hearts of the impenitent and transform them so that they are repentant and believing. It is nothing less than a miracle of God's grace and mercy. Thusly, all believers who find in themselves a repentant heart, can be more fully assured of their calling and election.
