The “fatwa” issued by the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) would potentially affect 4 million women and girls.
* * * JESUS CHRIST!!!
I’m assuming they’re talking about female circumcision.
Here’s my confusion about this report. I once heard it said (by a Muslim man) that “female circumcision” was NOT a part of the Muslim faith or practice. That was something that was done in Africa and when the Africans started getting converted to Islam, they just carried that practice over from their former non-Muslim lifestyle and made it a part of the religion. Kind of like when pagans get converted to Christianity but they want to keep doing stuff they did before they got converted that is now deemed unacceptable to be a true believer; but they want to do it anyway, so they incorporate it into the “doctrine” or “teachings” and bind it on others as a requirement for acceptance as a disciple. Even though Jesus didn’t teach it, order it or command it! Follow me?
So in the interest of comprehending the impact of this ISIS order, I have two questions (one that has been answered, click embedded link)
Are the ISIS militants African?
Cause if they are then, somebody just needs to explain to them their faith more perfectly, like Priscilla and Aquila did for Apollos. (ACTS 18: 24)
