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...
...dam it...ran out of space!
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.
thank you jr hate not having all info
Why only female genital mutilation...little boys get cut up too.
