What is a matter with these people!? Grab non Muslim woman from war torn counties as sex slaves for their husbands.

A Kuwaiti woman who once ran for parliament has called for sex slavery to be legalised ? and suggested that non-Muslim prisoners from war-torn countries would made suitable concubines.

having said that its been done on both sides of the fence. King Solomon from the bible and the richest King back in that time had 700 wives and 300 concubines. But that was 2000+ yrs ago!

Your headline is wrong. It's not "Kuwait" but "Kuwaiti".

Interesting that senior people in many Islamic societies - supposedly based on the 'religion of peace' - don't appear to have any problem with slavery and many other things we find repellent in the extreme.

There is a huge disconnect there somewhere. Almost a corruption of the spirit in so far as it allows both extreme piety....and savagry...at the same time inside the same mind.....with no apparent insight into the contradictions.

To be fair, Christians were exactly the same for 95% of the history of  Christianity....basically up until about 60 years ago....and arguably up to the present day as the piously religious George W Bush had no trouble lying about WMD to justify invading Iraq, resulting the deaths of over 100,000 people.   

People are strange.

Religion, and the way it has been moulded and manipulated into its various forms over the centuries appears to be the cause for so much conlfict and controversy in the world. Or is it merely an excuse to incite the conflict and controversy?

 I blame human nature. Some guy in Galilee says "Love thy fellow man" and "Turn the other cheek" - nek minnit, crusades.

It's all a matter of definition isn't it?
Where we see slavery as having some form of embedded repression along with punishment, this view is not necessarily shared in other cultures.

Similarly this line from the article used as supporting argument:
.... for a decent man who has the means, who is overpowered by desire and who does not want to commit fornication, is to acquire ?concubine? or ?sex slave?.
....Now in my western mind 'fornication' is what it says it is, but clearly in the above context it has two different meanings, overpowered by desire or not!!

I suspect it is the obsessively power-seeking sociopaths among us working out their pathology on the rest of us.....

Too many of the powerful are actually functionally mentally ill based on the consequences their actions have on the people - and socieities - around them.

We see the power and are told this is "success"....whereas I look at someone like Rupert Murdoch and think: "sick, evil man".

Although the bible is almost completely fiction?  Maybe in 2000 years people will view Harry Potter as fact?  And say that start worshiping a glasses wearing kid, on a broomstick :)

The same nature that makes them wipe out their good contributions from science while making a hero the guy who developed a bomb and spilled the secrets to other rogue nations...

Each to there own. You know there is proof that Solomon existed so did King David and many other kings, just because they're mention in a book such as the bible doesn't always mean its a fairy story.  but i bet you believe that we all came from apes  and life was created from a big bang outta know where and from that big bang the basics enzymes of life was created. The chance of that is 1 in 1 with 40,000 zeros after it. That believing the first cells originated by chance is like believing a tornado could sweep through a junkyard filled with airplane parts and form a Boeing 747.  (Fred Hoyle - Astronomer) :)
