Slavery and the Bible

Opponents have noted that pro-slavery people (as in US pre-Civil War) used the Bible to defend slavery - and that the Bible - does indeed defend slavery!

Anyway, I can't argue with this - but I have to say that times were way different then (as in Bible times).

The times were way different, but I think a lot of people still take the bible literally, whether for better or for worse.

Well, the time is very important - just like the context of the passage.
