Two years ago, Georgetown University made a show of repenting of its past connections to slavery by renaming two buildings whose namesakes had once sold slaves. It might be expected then that when a Georgetown faculty member defends slavery and rape, not just online, but in the course of a ninety-minute lecture, the reaction from the university would be swift but it’s only the sound of silence we hear from a Catholic university trying to call anyone interested in the truth an islamaphobe. Mohammud had slaves, so it can’t be sin. He had sex slaves, so it can’t be sin. He killed infidels, so it can’t be sin. I don’t think we serve he same God no matter what the Church tries to suggest otherwise.
