Pro-Slavery Catholicism

April 24, 1857

Under the Refuge of Oppression column, is a short article from the Boston Pilot, which speaks of the importance of the judiciary as an institution.  This comes in the context of a time when the Supreme Court is “so atrociously assailed by so large a portion of the press in the free States.”  The articles mentions the ‘anti-slavery Constitution and Anti-slavery Bible’ abolitionists.  “Our object is simply to guard our readers against their Disunion teaching, and one-sided construction of the existing Constitution.”
