Response: So I guess after failing to prove that female mutilation is an Islamic practice as expected, you now want to take on the treatment of women. Amusing, coming from a person whose ideology exploits and degrades women. I guess next you are going to tell us how Islam oppresses women while you sit and watch a porn flick after going to the strip club.

Response: Actually, you made a claim about Islam and have not backed it up. So you started on yourself. Don't blame others for your short comings.

Oops. Nothing in your link is backed by the Qur'an or Sunnah, so your own evidence proves it's not Islamic. so now that Islam is cleared, thanks to you, when will you stop condoning the exploitation and degrading of women?

it is an islamic practice brought in to other countries , it is illegal in civilised countries, that is why they take the poor girls out of Britain to have it done in the countries they come from, risking the lives of the girls just to show male superiority and to keep the females subservient, very sick and sad..

Response: Yet your own sources not only show that it is not an Islamic practice but according to your own logic, it is a Christian practice since Christians also practice it in those same countries. So you just exposed yourself as usual.

Yes, your religion is very sick and sad..

FGM is practised by people of all faiths within the cultures it is found in.

Especially in Africa FGM is a cultural tradition dating to before any conversion to Christianity and/or Islam. The weight of centuries of tradition means it is often erroneously believed by its practisioners to be mandated by their religion, but this is not the case for Christianity or Islam.

All well and good. However, this leaves the fact that these religions are woefully incapable of suppressing such a barbaric prectice. It takes a secular society to do that.

But islam doesn't order the genital mutilation for women.

Easy questions to end odd argument:

do the a-religious practice female genital mutilation as a regular occurrence?

If yes- can be argued culturally

If no- can be argued as religion.

Side note: Yes, religion is also part of culture.

The obvious answer is that this practice trends among religious aspects of a society. The problem with religion is that people do things -for it-, not because said religion actually promotes it. That however, is not an excuse or justification.
Here we have an advocate for Islamic arranged marriages demonstrating that children can consent to sex.

Nor does poker have anything to do with gambling addiction.

The question is how many practicing Islamists practice FGM as an understood part of Islam, or claim the teachings of Islam are the reason for doing it.

What is the reason for its continuation? If the answer is "culture" but not "religion", you are kidding yourself.

I have seen several interviews with muslims who explicitly contradicted you. It is what muslims do that counts, not what is in scripture.

Are Turkey's people drinking beer because of there ardent devotion to Islam?

Lets try answering the question on the table, please: what is the reason for FGM's continuation? Are people continuing the practice do to religo-instilled mores, or are they doing it because its seems like a fun thing to do, cause, ya know, culture or something. While the second half of the question seems condescending, remember, there are 2 genders to a culture, and I am sure you would be willing to agree that between the two, one of those genders might have a disagreement with FGM, but for some reason the practice prevails. Its almost like one of those genders is given no input, probably due to religo-inspired mores. But, I digress/

It is merely cultural per se, has nothing to do with islamic teaching. no matter all muslims practice it. perhaps muslims think it is the part of their religion. If they knew their religion well then they would not practice FGM.

" what is the reason for FGM's continuation? " Is it religo-instilled mores, or not?

It is merely cultural per se, has nothing to do with islamic teaching. no matter all muslims practice it. perhaps muslims think it is the part of their religion. If they knew their religion well then they would not practice FGM.

So then yes, the practice continues due to religo-instilled mores. That they "know their religion well" is the exact reason for its continuance, as that is its justification, not specifically its cause.

Thank you.
Here we have an advocate for Islamic arranged marriages demonstrating that children can consent to sex.

Easy questions to end odd argument:

do the a-religious practice female genital mutilation as a regular occurrence?

If yes- can be argued culturally

If no- can be argued as religion.


Side note: Yes, religion is also part of culture.

The obvious answer is that this practice trends among religious aspects of a society. The problem with religion is that people do things -for it-, not because said religion actually promotes it. That however, is not an excuse or justification.

some muslims don't practice it. some do. however still it has nothing to do with Islam.

Nor does poker have anything to do with gambling addiction.

The question is how many practicing Islamists practice FGM as an understood part of Islam, or claim the teachings of Islam are the reason for doing it.

What is the reason for its continuation? If the answer is "culture" but not "religion", you are kidding yourself.

And what does Islam say about it? Just because Turkey people drink beer it doesn't mean beer is permitted in Islam.


Are Turkey's people drinking beer because of there ardent devotion to Islam?

Lets try answering the question on the table, please: what is the reason for FGM's continuation? Are people continuing the practice do to religo-instilled mores, or are they doing it because its seems like a fun thing to do, cause, ya know, culture or something. While the second half of the question seems condescending, remember, there are 2 genders to a culture, and I am sure you would be willing to agree that between the two, one of those genders might have a disagreement with FGM, but for some reason the practice prevails. Its almost like one of those genders is given no input, probably due to religo-inspired mores. But, I digress/

and still FGM is not encouraged by Islam.

I will consider your dodge of the question to be a concession to the point.

" what is the reason for FGM's continuation? " Is it religo-instilled mores, or not?

Thank you.

at least it is not encouraged by Islamic teaching, since nonmuslims also practice FGM.

it has nothing to do with Islam, it is cultural instead.

cultural, like honour killing, hanging gays, killing gays, throwing gays off buildings...funny how that culture thing works..

yes, female genital mutilation is cultural it is not the part of islamic teaching although it is practiced in some islamic countries.

oh the muslim cultural cover up thing, like we don't kill gays because of islam, that's just what some muslim countries do!!!!
