Island's gonna sink Jim Donnelly Artful Codger donnelly@his.com rs:

If by "priests in the south" you mean "priests in the Confederacy" I dunno. But I know that for at least a while the Jesuit Fathers in Maryland owned slaves. I think they had freed them some considerable time before the abolition movement had gained any momentum. Apparently somebody allowed free rein to his common sense and realized that what had been going on was not a good thing.
