    But because we don't have roving armies of Christians killing non-believers at the moment? You know, like ISIS, Boko Haram, ect.
    Yeah just abusing kids and covering it up. Who cares about that.

    'greater issue'. Love the dishonest arguments.

    Sexual assault is happening in both religions.

    But only one has roving death cults killing thousands of non-believers.

    If I was raising kids, and I had a choice to have a priest or imam babysit my kid, I'm going with the imam.

    Types/variation of FGM in Nigeria

    In Nigeria, of the six largest ethnic groups, the Yoruba, Hausa, Fulani, Ibo, Ijaw, and Kanuri, only the Fulani do not practice any form.[9]

    FGM varies from country to country, tribes, religion, and from one state and cultural setting to another, and no continent in the world has been exempted.[3] In most parts of Nigeria, it is carried out at a very young age (minors) and there is no possibility of the individual's consent.[6] Type I and Type II are more widespread and less harmful compared to Type III and Type IV. In Nigeria, there is greater prevalence of Type I excision in the south, with extreme forms of FGM prevalent in the North. Practice of FGM has no relationship with religion. Muslims and Christians practice it, but it is more widely spread in Christian predominated parts of Nigeria.[2]

    lol!

    I said compared to Canadian media and there you are comparing it to...fox. Again.

    let me make this clear, they are not as bad a fox, not by a long shot, but, compared to the relatively neutral Canadian media (CBC being the worst we have here) they are really slanted. Everything is spun, everything is sensationalized, speculated instead of simply stating what has happened, and what is known. It's not a CNN thing, every American news agency does it, and it's simply for the ratings. News is just another form of entertainment.

    zeke has become unhinged lately. He can't make an honest argument anymore.

    I don't watch Fox, or have any affinity for them. I think they are dishonest, and biased to the core.

    I just happen to think that CNN isn't much different - and recent developments have proven that to largely be the case.

    Religion

    While religion can help explain FGM/C distribution
    in many countries, the relationship is not consistent.
    In six of the countries where data on religion
    are available – Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Ethiopia,
    Ghana, Kenya and Senegal – Muslim population
    groups are more likely to practise FGM/C than
    Christian groups (see Figure 10, page 11). In fi ve
    countries there seems to be no signifi cant differences,
    while in Niger, Nigeria and the United
    Republic of Tanzania the prevalence is greater
    among Christian groups.

    lol.

    You only ever post one set of facts. That's why you are dishonest.

    I bet this is the first time you've ever considered that female genital mutilation isn't an exclusively muslim thing.

    I've always known it was also practiced broadly outside of Islam in African nations.

    I wonder if you'll do the same and admit that sexual molestation isn't remotely reserved to Catholics.

    Edit. I also didn't bring up FGM.

    Which century are you referring to this time?

    CNN just "retracted" the Scaramucci / Russia bullshit story, had 3 employees resign / get fired over it, had a producer say that the Russia angle is "bullshit" and that it was a directive from the Brass to push it, ON CAMERA, then they also got Van Jones calling it a "nothing burger" twice...but facts.



    You're an absolute moron.
    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.
