"You meant evil against me, but God meant for good ... to accomplish the saving of many lives." THEREFORE: For those who captured and sold into slavery those free and proud Africans, may they rot in hell. For those whose ancestors who were enslaved, may they save many lives now. Jon Hubbard said this in a very clumsy way. Wish he had been more articulate and better versed in the basis of a belief that God WILL make good.
Jon Hubbard, a Republican member of the Arkansas House of Representatives, has a book, titled "Letters to the Editor: Confessions of a Frustrated Conservative." Among its statements for which Hubbard has been criticized and disavowed by the Republican Party is, "The institution of slavery that the black race has long believed to be an abomination upon its people may actually have been a blessing in disguise. The blacks who could endure those conditions and circumstances would someday be rewarded with citizenship in the greatest nation ever established upon the face of the Earth."

Hubbard's observation reminded me of my 1972 job interview...
