Universal Moral Reform Society

June 11, 1852

A brief article about the Society, composed in part of leading Universalist ministers, includes an anti-slavery resolution, which was passed without opposition.  The resolution expresses a fear that unless slavery is overthrown, “the just judgment of God will descend upon the land”…”we feel called on as Christians to testify against the unrighteousness of slavery…. and to unite in striving to break down this loathsome institution.”
