    Have they considered all the values involved?

    ” Christians and Muslims have joined to try to help people held in modern-day slavery.”

    Muslims helping people held in slavery? Here is a quote from the Quran:

    “On the Day when every person will be confronted with all the good he has done, and all the evil he has done, he will wish that there were a great distance between him and his evil. And Allah warns you against Himself (His punishment) and Allah is full of kindness to (His) slaves.”
