In some previous articles (here and here), I pointed out some of the comments American Vision received in response to a promotional ad that we sent out on Facebook for the book The Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States. If these are real people and there are many more like them, we are in big trouble. Some of them have just a smidge of information wrapped in a thick blanket of misinformation. It’s not only that their information is suspect. They write some of the vilest things and attack at the personal level. They are angry and mean at a visceral level.
One of the topics that frequently came up was slavery. The Bible was attacked (see below on the Bible and slavery) and so was Benjamin F. Morris’ book even though no one who posted a comment had read it or knew of the massive supply of original sources backing up his claims.
