BTW: Christianity was a major force in outlawing slavery in this nation.

You said major, not "only". Are there any atheist groups against slavery? Muslem? Jewish?
I do not know the answer, I am just asking.

It was, basically, the sole driving force since human compassion failed miserably.
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...
