in response to reader comment: LOL, what a made up story

many religious leaders in the past had slaves, it was common. what about abraham (pbuh) and his slave servant hagar? and he is the father of all three monotheist religions. Now as these countries you talk about with slavery, i know of a few but i do know that saudi arabia has none. all their help are paid if you want to call them slaves then we who all work to make a living in society are slaves too.

SHOOT!!! hey if you want to know the truth about it , here in the usa there was recent stories unfolded that slavery was still ongoing on here but the slave workesr were spanish people. and the wordly known sneaker or shoe called NIKE have small children in malaysian countries in slavery designing the shoe for none or very little pay. my take is that with today world and even in the past people want something for nothing and will get it the easiest way possible.
