And you still don't bother answering the issues nor the actual questions posted in the thread, nor have you condemned this practice nor the Imama...I think that says a lot.
Even in your quote it states quite clearly about cutting but not "severely" that means nothing. The Imam (the subject of this thread ) says himself that some carry out the practice too severely, I acknowledge that fact. You haven't watched the video, there are four stages of FGM I suggest you look them up.
The fact remains (despite my belief it wasn't in the Quran ) that it IS sanctioned by Islam, however severely, and is still wrong on every level, so I guess you should start backtracking. I made to attempt to mention others that do this specifically as the whole thread was about the practice in the US the legality and this particular Imam.
Trouble is mate...nothing I said isn't actually true even if only my opinion...at least its based on facts as I see them.
I get sick and tired of repeating myself to you on each and every thread about Islam. I cannot and will not defend this Imam nor Islam generally until it acknowledges womens rights and treats women as equals. Until then.......

I don't say this to defend the man but don't we cut the tips of boys penis' without their consent in western culture?
Some barbaric tradition that mutilates children's sex organs?
Isn't it some barbaric Jewish tradition that we continue to make excuses for?
this female mutilation is the equivalent of removing the entire glans penis, the entire head of the penis. Not just the foreskin. So you'll know.
