How could good Christians have slaves? How could Robert E. Lee fight for the South and slavery? If the Bible is revelation from God, why isn't it clearer that putting a person in chains is the sin of sins?

I watched part of the thriller, What Lies Beneath, with my wife yesterday. We knew before the movie was over, "what lies beneath" was not good. It reminded me of a dream I had...
