Perverse rationale. Unfounded logic. Two phrases to describe the letter in last Thursday’s Express by Steve Smith, “Stop looking for others to blame”.
Firstly, if the slave trade was acceptable, as the writer stated, I wish to ask—by whose standards? Certainly not the dogma of religion. Steve Smith delves into a lot of history about slavery, but failed miserably to cogently justify this evil and atrocious act against mankind by ungodly, greedy tyrants.
