Bryan Fischer is Looking at the Bright Side of Slavery
Recently Arkansas state Rep. Jon Hubbard has been receiving a lot of attention for his self-published book in which he states that "the institution of slavery that the black race has long believed to be an abomination upon its people may actually have been a blessing in disguise [because] the blacks who could endure those conditions and circumstances would someday be rewarded with citizenship in the greatest nation ever established upon the face of the Earth."
Most people, when they read something like this, just shake their heads in amazement ... but not Bryan Fischer, who asserts that though Hubbard may have phrased it poorly, he has a point because "if we have blacks today, now that we've gotten past slavery, blacks are living in America and no matter how they got here - and nobody is trying to say they way they got here was a good thing, nobody is saying that, nobody is defending that - but now they're in a land of opportunity. So maybe God, in his grace, took something that men meant for evil - slavery - and He turned it into something good for blacks who know live in a land of opportunity and unlimited possibility rather than being trapped on a continent which is still mired in poverty and disease":
