In another post i talked about something that made me hate most religions which is Genital Mutilation (GM). I talked about Male GM (MGM) because I was mutilated when I was 7 years old, and I still remember it as if it was just yesterday. The pain still haunts me, hated the look of my bald penis and always found it ugly as hell!!! When I look at pictures of un-circumcised penises i can help feeling pity for myself and envy those who were a lot more fortunate than me to have un-believer parents or parents from other religions which did not require physical mutilation.
Anyway here is what I said in that post if you have not read it yet. Becasue I need to know if any one else felt like I did regarding this disturbing subject...
I forgot to mention one very important Straw that broke my camel's back and got my engine of skepticism running....
....The one and only::::: the head of all loop-holes::::: the most inhumane thing humans can do to one another and especially to their (presumably) loved ones::::: please let me borrow again from George Carlin here..... "you have to stand in awe, in awe
,.." of the most horrible crimes of major brain-washing religions (Namely Islam, Christianity and Judaism)... the one and only-----> CIRCUMCISION!!!!!
I myself am of course circumcised, this is the only one thing that made me uneasy about my parents... I wish they had waited until I am 18, so that i can decide for myself. They just did it::: snip snip... ouch ouch!!! and that was it... (I don't hate them now... because they were not their-selves, they were brain-washed, or as I like to call it,... they were actually UNDER-THE-INFLUENCE)
Well... about 20 years later from that [snip snip... ouch ouch!!] I thought to myself.... "if I ever get married and have sons (I am grateful that from where I come from, only sons are mutilated, girls were safe. They have the Hijab to worry about instead)... Yes, I thought to my-self that I will never let my sons be molested and tourtured... of course it is molestation, to let a perverted total stranger (a sadistic religion-man or a failure of a false-doctor) touch their genitals and not only touch them but inflict pain as well???".... so I decided that I will never let that happen what ever the consequences.
Now I am so glad and proud of my self because I have 4 sons and none of them were touched by an Under-the-influence psycho with a pair of scissors...
The funny thing is that although I am still struggling to convince people around me (friends and relatives) that mutilation of babies is wrong. I manage to win the battle of discussions with them or at least this is how I feel.
How I win?
Very simple.... I always tell them that I am obviously more Muslim and a believer than they are... because I think that God is perfect and he (or she!! or it) has created us in the perfect and complete form, and by cutting a piece of my sons penises I am simply saying to God: "HEY GOD.... WAIT A MINUTE, YOU HAVE SOME DESIGN ERROR HERE, IN THE BELOW THE BELLY-BUTTON DEPARTMENT.... LET ME CORRECT IT FOR YOU.... SNIP SNIP... THERE YOU GO... NO YOUR CREATION IS COMPLETE, DON'T FORGET TO THANK ME!!!"
... I actually say that... This is how I always make them stop nagging and change the subject. Actually after I say this they are always the ones who are eager to change the subject..., most of the time they will say: wow it is hot today, what is the temperature again?
Mind you, this is not that whole reason, but I just think that it is one of the most annoying reasons for me to call it a day for religion altogether...
