Reader comment on item: Islamists Endorse Muslims Owning Slaves

Islam will keep its slavery. It is as central to Islam as the sermon on the Mount is to Christians. The Koran cannot be reformed unless someone rewrites it. It is written that it is the word of god.

Islam is a pretty good deal for its followers, except for the poverty of spirit and following a ... It's nice to have slaves, and slave women who must do what you want, don't you think? It's very pleasant to know that you are the superior of everyone else, and they must bow to you because you are part of Islam. It's often the urge of young men to go out and kill and have sex with women as they like. Islam gives that right to its followers.

So? How can this change from within?

So it won't happen Daniel.
