Why doesn't anyone ever mention male genital mutilation. Just as heinous, just as ridiculous.

agreed. I suspect though it was because it wasn't in the bible as far as i'm aware. i believe it was a result of the Castrati. the priests attempting to save angelic voices though castration before puberty.

I didn't know that about "Castrati".
Let me add that to my "why I dislike religion" list...

ran out of space!

Male genital mutilation is in the Bible. It's called circumcision. I suppose they never mention that because people still do it to a degree sometimes for reasons other than religion. It's just as horrible and should be mentioned.

circumcision is listed in torah not most of bibles I have read. jewish faith and christianity have very large differences.

Circumcision is mentioned about 87 times in the Bible.
