What's your problem guy? I happen to be reading 'The Origins of Proslavery Christrianty: White and Black Evangelicals in Colonial and Antebelllum Virginia" by Charles F. Irons (c) 2008, University of North Carolina Press.
I'm also reading overlapping titles (in terms of topic) like 'Slavery and the Meetinghouse' and 'Fit for Freedom, Not Friendship' (both about Quakers and their attitudes toward slavery and African-Americans since the 1600s).
I think my case is quite solid. Christians talk about "God's Plan" for America. "Manifest Destiny" and "slavery" went together in a lot of peoples minds.
