But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes. - 1John 2:11 (ESV)

As the title reveals, this is a subject that continues to be drubbed into the flock by the NAR, dominionist, apostate church. The above link is the latest attempt by Eddie Hyatt, rabid dominionist, trying to convince us all that this country has always been a Christian Shangri-La when founded until some nefarious point where the evil lefties took over somehow. Fortunately, Eddie is so transparently bad at both understanding the bible and American history that debunking him is very easy. Let me preface this with the usual context. I think in the history of secular governments, that America stands out as the best try humans have made. I think America has done a lot of good in this world over her 200 + years. That however, does not prevent me from being honest that not everything was and is good. It certainly was never Christian in the ways the NAR wishes to believe. Yes, there were plenty of Christians amidst the Founding Fathers but to pretend they were all Evangelicals singing How Great is Our God while they drafted the Constitution is absurd. Most of those that people like Eddie Hyatt exalt as Christians were clearly not. Thomas Jefferson for example rewrote the bible, removing all references to the deity of Christ and His miracles. Most of these folks were deists, meaning they believe in a God, but not necessarily the God.

One of the areas that the NAR desperately wishes to rewrite in our history is related to racism and slavery. They try to parse out the meaning of words to pretend that the sins of our past were somehow not as bad as they appear in history books. Let me be very clear. Slavery is the absolute height of racism. It was based upon the fundamental false believe that black people were inferior to white people. Not just marginally either but in every imaginable way. Slavery was not somehow beneficial for the slaves either, as some of the idiots on the right recently proffered. Trying to relitigate this and somehow split the bill is to enslave people all over again with the ultimate version of gaslighting. I say this as a backdrop because in the above article from Eddie Hyatt, he cleverly tries to slip in another whitewashing of slavery and racism in between two other unrelated talking points about "awakenings" in this country that may have their own level of dubiousness to them. Eddie buries the lead though to try and throw off the criticism he deserves for his ridiculous statements on race found in his second point in the article. It is only this point that I will deal with here. Let us reason once more beloved:

'Fact No. 2: America's founders were not racists. Out of the Great Awakening, an anti-slavery movement was ignited that led to virtually every Founding Father, including those who owned slaves, taking a public stand against it. George Washington declared, "There is not a man living who wishes more than I do to see a plan adopted for the abolition of slavery."' - Eddie Hyatt

This is a famous Eddie Hyatt tactic. He scours history for individual quotes that support a point he is trying to make but ignores the rest of the body of evidence. George Washington was so opposed to slavery that he owned 123 of them. Not only that but he did not free them at his death but passed them on to his wife. Eddie also left off the rest of that quote from Washington, which read:

"there is only one proper and effectual mode by which it can be accomplished, and that is by Legislative authority;" - Geroge Washington
