No, not only right-wing commentators are condemning the comments of Brown. I for one, condemn his apologia of Islamic slavery or his philosophizing of non-consensual sexual relations. I know that Brown has tried to explain his comments but they are familiar to anyone familiar with the Islamic apologia of...slavery. As for the non-consensual sexual relations, I don't know what he is talking about but the idea is repulsive regardless of intentions. I should point out that Talal bin `Abdul-`Aziz (father of the funder of the Center of Christian-Muslim Understanding, after whom it was named) and his brothers owned slaves, not to mention that they engaged in non-conseual sexual relations.
