When a Slave Holder Joined the Church

See the source image

What was the Churches policy to slave owners that joined the Church?
a.                  Sell the slave
b.                  Give the slave his/her freedom
c.                   Retain the slave
d.                  The Church did not interfere
Yesterday’s answer:
B   Sang at the meetings
From the life of Mary Farrow Wilson Dodds:   Mary was born in Tweedsmouth, Berwick, Scotland. She had a beautiful singing voice. After her conversion to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1850, she sang for the missionaries in meetings in public buildings, private homes or on street corners in England. She married Charles Wilson in Hazelrigg, Northumberland, England.
