I especially liek this quote by Abraham Lincoln who in the end abolished slavery in all its forms upon United States soil....

"Here are 23 ministers, of different denominations, and all of them are
against me but three; and here are a great many prominent members of the
Churches, a very large majority of whom are against me. Mr. Bateman, I am
not a Christian -God knows I would be one -but I have carefully read the
Bible, and I do not understand this book'; and he drew from his bosom a
pocket New Testament. 'These men well know,' he continued, 'that I am for
freedom in the territories, freedom everywhere as far as the Constitution
and the laws will permit, and that my opponents are for slavery. they know
this, and yet, with this book in their hands, in the light of which human
bondage cannot live a moment, they are going to vote against me. I do not
understand it at all.'"
[Abraham Lincoln, quoted by Newton Bateman, Superintendent of Public
Instruction for the State of Illinois, from "The Religious Beliefs
of Our Presidents, From Washington to F.D.R.", by Franklin Stiner]
