Professor States Islamic Slavery and Rape is a Quid Pro Quo Arrangement

Americans are constantly berated for the original sin of slavery.  The Civil War ended 150 years ago; yet, progressives act as though this institution were alive and well to this day.  If you’re a white Anglo-Protestant Christian then you owe reparations simply because of your skin color.  It doesn’t matter if your ancestors fought for the Union and ultimately the abolishment of an evil institution.  You’re guilty, whitey!

However, if you’re a Muslim then slavery is a benign institution, both master and slave benefit from a quid pro quo arrangement.  That is what Professor George Brown of Georgetown stated in a lecture at the International Institute of Islamic Thought.  Here is an excerpt from Heat Street:

Brown defended slavery, stating, “It’s not immoral for one human to own another human” by comparing it to marriage—a quid pro quo arrangement in which both slave and master benefited from the arrangement.

“I don’t think it’s morally evil to own somebody because we own lots of people all around us and we’re owned by people,” said Brown.

A female attendee asked Brown about the permissibility of sex with slaves, to which the professor stated that “Consent isn’t necessary for lawful sex,” and defined consent as a Western concept that emerged with women’s suffrage and female body autonomy. Brown, he said, believes that marital rape was an invalid concept in Islam.

Had Prof. Brown’s words been spoken by a practicing member of any other religion, they would’ve lost their jobs and shunned out of the academic world

Muhammad codified slavery as he did with almost every aspect of Islamic life including rape.  Why are we allowing this ideology to creep into Western civilization?  Better yet, why are progressives aligning themselves with a people who would enslave and rape them the first chance they get?
