I didn't read all of this, but the parts that I read do not change a thing to what we discussed so far:
- Muhammad condones slavery. Saying "be kind to your slaves" implies that you are allowed to have slaves.
- The best Muslims can come up with in defense of the Koran is that its teachings are inconsistant, and they are choosing the better parts and ignoring the bad parts.
Maybe you missed what you consider to be the "bad parts" of the Quran because you didn't read it all?
The NT condones slavery as well!
Also the fact that we do not have anything about Jesus talking against slavery must tell you something here!
But, most important of all, Muhammad himself had slaves. How can he be an abolitionist? What a ridiculous claim.
He was abolitionist as in working against slavery gradually!
You don't seems to understand that we are talking about a society that is 1400 years back in time!
Again slavery was more than just common!
