I meant that ironically, in case it isn't obvious.

See, for example, Exodus 21:6. It doesn't just "refer to slavery as an institution," it commands it.
" Others argued that since the Bible refers to slavery as an institution without specifically condemning it, it must be divinely permitted." Actually, multiple passages in the Bible endorse slavery, but USA Today doesn't want to antagonize its Christian readers. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2021/02/28/white-nationalists-use-christian-symbols-send-messages-racists/4457702001/
