What a friggin disgrace! Jimmy Carter comments come in a new book, “In Lincoln’s Hand: His Original Manuscripts With Commentary By Distinguished Americans.”
Carter comments on a passage by Lincoln in which Lincoln writes: “I am almost ready to say this is probably true – that God wills this contest, and wills that it shall not end yet.”
Carter writes that he finds the Lincoln writing “very troubling.” Continues Carter: “He ignores the fact that the tragic combat might have been avoided altogether, and that the leaders of both sides, overwhelmingly Christian, were violating a basic premise of their belief as followers of the Prince of Peace.” He concludes: “A legitimate question for historians is how soon the blight of slavery would have been terminated peacefully in America, as in Great Britain and other civilized societies.”
so I guess he’s saying over 200 years of enslavement at the time the Civil War started wasn’t TOO MUCH? So Jimmy, were those slaves so blind to their condition that a few more DECADES wouldn’t have mattered? You say that Lincoln IGNORES THE FACT?
I don’t know if it’s age setting in or if he was always this stupid. Either way, he should just keep building houses and stay away from writing books and anything close to the media. He’s an embarassment.
