A New Way of Avoiding Fornication (Updated)

The Apostle Paul passed along some good instructions to the Corinthians:

Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.

Simple, eh?

Apparently, his instructions are insufficient for the “average, good religious man.” MEMRI brings us the thinking of a Kuwaiti political activist named Salwa Al-Mteiri:

The law pertaining to slave girls is not the same as for free women. Free women must cover their bodies, except for their hands and faces. The slave girl must cover up from the bellybutton down. There is a big difference between slave girls and free women. With a free woman, the man must make a marriage contract, but with a slave girl – all he has to do is buy her. It’s as if he married her. So there is a difference between slave girls and free women.

Here in Kuwait too, I asked religious scholars and experts about this, and they said that for the average, good religious man, the only way to avoid forbidden relations with women is to purchase slave girls.

I’m so glad that has been cleared up.
