Center President Calls For Georgetown University To Repudiate Professor Who Defends Slavery, Misogyny

by CENTER FOR SECURITY POLICY February 27, 2017

(Washington, D.C.): Center for Security Policy President Frank Gaffney today responded to outrageous statements made recently by the executive director of Georgetown University's Saudi-funded Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding, Jonathan AC Brown. The Georgetown professor of Islamic Studies condoned slavery and rape in the course of remarks made recently at the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated International Institute on Islamic Thought (IIIT).

In a letter today to Georgetown's president, John DeGioia, Gaffney - an alumnus of the university - observed that Brown was promoting conduct that is directly at odds with his alma mater's stated policies, including such assertions as: "It is not immoral for one human to own another human" and "Consent isn't necessary for lawful sex."

Mr. Gaffney called for Georgetown University to disassociate itself from Brown's abhorrent, supremacist and misogynistic remarks by publicly renouncing them and terminating his employment.

For over twenty-five years, the Center for Security Policy has pioneered the organization, management and direction of public policy coalitions to promote U.S. national security. Even more importantly, the Center's mission has been to secure the adoption of the products of such efforts by skillfully enlisting support from executive branch officials, key legislators, other public policy organizations, opinion-shapers in the media and the public at large.
