Answering Muslims: Muslim "Activist" Salwa Al-Mutairi Calls for Legalized Sex Slavery

Is this really the kind of world we want?

KUWAIT: A female political activist and former parliamentary candidate has recommended the introduction of legislation to legalize the provision of enslaved female concubines for Muslim men in Kuwait in a bid, she says, to protect those men from committing adultery or corruption.

I know that some who think morality is relative might argue that it is okay because it's their culture. I disagree. Adultery is wrong no matter who does it and women are not mere sexual objects to be exploited. I would not want such a life for my daughter, cousin, or any woman. It just is not right. I'm glad David Wood pointed this out and also points to the fact that it is consistent with Islamic culture.

Qur’an 23:1-6—The believers must (eventually) win through—those who humble themselves in their prayers; who avoid vain talk; who are active in deeds of charity; who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or (the captives) whom their right hands possess—for (in their case) they are free from blame.

Qur’an 4:24—Also (forbidden are) women already married, except those (captives and slaves) whom your right hands possess.

She suggested that special offices could be set up to provide concubines in the same way as domestic staff recruitment agencies currently provide housemaids.

We want our youth to be protected from adultery," said Al-Mutairi, suggesting that these maids could be brought as prisoners of war in war-stricken nations like Chechnya to be sold on later to devout merchants.

This is not religiously forbidden," she added, indicating that Caliph Haroun Al-Rashid (766-809 AD) was married to one woman but possessed 200 concubines. (Source)
