The American churches: the bulwarks of American slavery by James Gillespie Birney( Book )

66 editions published between 1840 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Writing primarily for a British audience, American abolitionist James Birney argues in this 1842 essay that Protestant churches in the American South are complicit in sustaining slavery. First, they avoid condemning the institution as a whole, and they also allow individual church members to mistreat their slaves without censure. Birney was the son of a wealthy Kentucky slaveowner and at one time owned a large cotton plantation in Alabama. Over the years his views on slavery evolved toward gradual emancipationism and then total abolitionism. Birney published a Cincinnati anti-slavery newspaper, The Philanthropist, and ran twice for U.S. president as a candidate for the Liberty Party, an early forerunner of the Republican Party
