Tucker Carlson: Christians Ended Slavery & Jim Crow

"Fox News host Tucker Carlson declared that all slavery in the world had been eradicated thanks to the Christian faith.

At the National Prayer Breakfast last week, conservatives accused President Barack Obama of comparing Christianity to the Islamic terrorist group ISIS when he observed that many religions had been used to justify violence throughout history.

"So we're responsible for the Crusades a thousand years ago?" Carlson complained. "Who's 'us' anyway? And by the way, who ended slavery and Jim Crow? Christians. The Rev. Martin Luther King. Christians."

"Christianity is the reason we don't have slavery in the world today," he added. "I mean, talk about ahistorical."*

Cenk Uygur ( host of The Young Turks breaks down Tucker Carlson and Mike Huckabee's comments. Cenk discusses Christianity's role in slavery and the end of Jim Crow. Cenk reads quotes from The Bible which where used to justify slavery.

The bible is not moral.
