Why Is Female Genital Mutilation Happening in the West?

First a definition— not for the squeamish:

Female genital mutilation (FGM), or “cutting,” is a practice that gives credit to the fact that if you take a knife and you cut off portions of a female’s vagina, the desired end results are that the woman would have less of a sexual appetite, would be a better mate for her husband, and that her husband would have stronger sexual pleasure. The practice is meant to mark a girl’s passage to womanhood or to prepare her for marriage.

These girls and women are often pinned down by multiple people, or they are demanded to lie down and just endure the pain. During this modern form of human torture, untrained practitioners will cut them up with scissors, knives, razor blades or crude pieces of glass.

One can understand it in Africa or Middle East have this practice, there is some documentation to state that those of that area have this practice.  This tells me that the west is importing this barbarous act, not that the Christian west came up with it.  Maybe instead of coming up with laws to outlaw the practice (which would be the very least we could do), we should close up our borders so that people from these areas are not allowed in with their barbaric cultural practice.

Not to say that we should not send missionaries to these places with the Gospel and help to change them.  Not at all.  But we need to stop the sill notion that is multicuturalism that believes that all cultures are relatively the same.  Obviously they are not.
