A professor of Islamic Studies (yes, really…) at an elite Washington DC university has caused no outrage from the Left despite preaching the virtues of Islamic slavery and rape during a lecture.
Professor Jonathan Brown (a Muslim convert) of Georgetown University argued life as a slave to sharia law was all fine, dandy and totally legit. Brown boasted that it is “not immoral for one human to own another human” because “the Prophet of God [Mohammed] had slaves”. He also, obviously, said that this sort of slavery was better than slavery in the US South because it was Islamic and not controlled by white people.
This horrific hors d’oeuvre was followed by the maniacal main course of condoning rape – saying that “consent isn’t necessary for lawful sex”, bemoaning that Western society is “obsessed with the idea of autonomy and consent.” Charming.
Why didn’t DC’s famed Women’s March kick up a fuss about this one?
