Slavery and Rape Are Okay, According to Georgetown Islamic Studies Professor

LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:

Now, this is interesting. A professor at Georgetown University specializing in Islamic culture has recently been spotlighted for saying some pretty controversial things– such as that owning another person as property is okay in the Muslim world. As is non-consensual sex.

According to Heat Street:

A professor at Georgetown University is teaching his students that men do not need consent to have sex with women, and that slavery is justifiable under Islamic teachings.

Islamic Studies professor Jonathan Brown recently lectured at the International Institute of Islamic Thought, where he shared his alarming beliefs with students in attendance in his lecture, “Islam and the Problem of Slavery.” Freelance writer Umar Lee expressed his shock over the 90-minute lecture, which included explicit endorsements of rape and slavery.

 

The video of the lecture is available (for now) below:
