More buck bullsh|t? Another insight of guesswork backed up with your personal wet dreams and your home school PhD (failed) in buck knows best?
So what you seem to be saying here is that because some groups of people who happen to be muslim and practice FGM then all Muslims are guilty of FGM, terrorism, pollution, swearing in the street, and exceeding the speed limit. So we can all assume, using your logic that all Americans are guilty of being obese and obnoxious failed bank robbers with a god problem?
Google Eritrea
Eritrea: Religious Distribution (2002) indicates that Christianity makes up 63% of the population with Islam making up 37%.
Eritrea: female genital mutilation of 35 to 39 year olds is 92.6% and of 15-19 year olds is 78.3%.
Do the maths
So by your logic all christionas are guilty of FGM
Go for it buck you use of logic defies logic.
By that, it sounds like this horrendous practice is falling away a little. That's something!

Ever since I read Waris Dirie's book, I have been horrified by this barbarity. It isn't Xian, Muslim, pagan, etc. Apparently it has been the tradition in Africa for about 4000 years, maybe longer, Ancient Egyptian sources talk about it.

This article is especially disturbing:

We're travelling all the way around the Florida coast, East then West, and will finish in New Orleans before hacking back to Atlanta. Will have 100s of hours of Radio 4 (TIMC, etc) on accompny us rather than "Praise da Lord" local radio.

Methinks you will be kind of sick of praise the lord being inserted into every sentence before you hit New Orleans, probably before you get out of Florida.

It seems to be declining slightly, but it won’t be until governments make laws to overturn traditions that we will get closer to an end of this butchery.

Cheers, not read that last article.

It's a friendly part of the world so in return I don't mind the meaningless platitudes.

Not going near any sodding theme parks though!

Hmm
Who taught you this?
"If any man come to me, and HATE not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple".--Luke 14:26
You realize that your god is actually a sadistic cretin who enjoys peeping on people in hell, it really pisses Satan off. That's because God won't let him look at the 72 virgins in paradise.
Thank you for sharing your mythology...
Jesus was referring to His disciples and the parable was about their non-Christian parents/family hating them for following Jesus.

The love of a Christian for a non-Christian is almost always seen as hatred, intolerance or bigotry. Look at how Christians are treated on this website alone...

Jesus said, "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first".

God bless you!

Circumcision is a procedure performed on the male genital area, it has very little medial use except in the case of Paraphimosis, Balanitis, UTI, STI and cancer. Its religious or cultural usage has nothing to do with any of these conditions. It mainly remains a religious or cultural procedure so are you saying all Hebrews and Muslims suffer from infection at birth?
You are in need of some more homeschooling.
P.S. you also need to consider it from the religion point of view – If your god the creator did not want men to have foreskins why did he arrange that every male was born with a foreskin?
I don't know about it's medial (sic) benefits, but circumcision has several medical benefits.

-A decreased risk of urinary tract infections.
-A reduced risk of sexually transmitted diseases in men.
-Protection against penile cancer.
-Reduced risk of cervical cancer in female sex partners.
-Prevention of balanitis (inflammation of the glans) and balanoposthitis (inflammation of the glans and foreskin).
-Prevention of phimosis (the inability to retract the foreskin) and paraphimosis (the inability to return the foreskin to its original location).
-Makes it easier to keep the end of the penis clean.

Where is it written in the Bible that "god the creator did not want men to have foreskins"?

You've lost the medial (sic) debate, are you ready to lose the Biblical debate as well?

You are a liar.
Even the Egyptians and Jordanians have sided against Hamas.
The only people siding with the Jihadist terrorists are you and your fellow terrorist-supporters in Iran.
Maybe your Jihadist terrorist friends will kidnap some little girls and you can help hold them down while they mutilate their genitals.
Then you guys can have a group science discussion on e=mc^2 proving there is no god.
Then a history class on how Stalin was a Christian.
Ending with a song of praise to Hitler for killing Jews. One of the Hitler youth songs would be appropriate. You know, that famous Christian group who sang:
" We follow not Christ, but Horst Wessel,
Away with incense and Holy Water,
The Church can go hang for all we care,
The Swastika brings salvation on Earth."
And you could name your group after Stalin's famous Christian Organization - "The League of Militant Atheists"

Silly girl, the whole idea of atheism is there is no one higher than man. It why we call atheism a religion.
In fact, we see the fruit of man being unaccountable to a higher power at all levels of a society.
There is no greater faith than believing that is a good idea...

Two wild accusations.

2. Preachers making profit

The Atlantic coast and center of the peninsula is much more interesting. Lot of history on the coast from the 1500's. The interior has more of the old attractions and points of interest. Be sure to check out Silver Springs and the Bok Tower in Lake Wales. Spook Hill is right near the Tower. North of Orlando you should take one of the old US routes to Tallahassee, then down to the coast and on to Pensacola. That 200 mile stretch from Tallahassee to Pensacola is deadass boring.

The interstates in the South are tree lined tunnels from here to there. Take the old routes to see anything.

There is a place called Perry at the bend of the Panhandle that has a lot of dinosaur digs. There is a historic residential section of Pensacola with architecture that puts NOLA to shame.

The best beaches will be Daytona south to West Palm Beach. You can walk some of them for miles at night in safety. You won't further south. Take A1A down if you have the time.

I just looked up the geography of Great Britain. The longest distance between two points is 601 1/2 miles.

Miami to Pensacola is 750 miles. Add another 130 or so from Key West. You will have a lot of windshield time.

We used to joke about having to drive 400 miles from Miami to get to the United States. That was to the Georgia border.

Florida has a rather unique history.
