actually, FGM is mentioned in the hadiths (sayings) of Mohammed and since they are considered part of the Sunnah (tradition), many Muslims follow it. granted, there are different types of FGM – but neither one is okay.
and yes, if it weren’t for Islam then all of these horrors would be pretty much unheard of today, in so many countries (not all of them Arab). even Christians gave up inquisitorial-style torture and killing methods long ago, as the Jews too gave up barbaric tribal laws.

True, there are different types of FGM, some more horrific than others. Yes, it predates Islam. This doesn’t stop many of its practitioners from saying that Islam commands them to do it. Would it last long in free countries if not for being protected by religion? I’d like to see that!

Welcome to Gabbin' About God, sponsored by Ace Religious Supplies, where they say, “If we don't got it, it ain't holy.”

Just kidding. This is Not My God, a site for the personal aspect of atheism. I'm putting together a book with that title, having already 20 interviews lined up, but I still want to hear from more of you.
I've expanded the blog to include material not related to atheism, including rants, raves, consumer issues, curmudgeonly matters and other miscellany.
