Spirit channeling via genital mutilation

Sometimes truth is just too bizarre.

Man Severs Father’s Genitals, Then Cuts Off Own Penis In Malaysia.

In a savage attack in Malaysia, a man cut off his father’s genitals, before severing his own, local news outlets report.

Police believe the 40-year-old man was “influenced by a false religious belief he picked up from the Internet,” according to Star Online.

K. Manoharan, the chief assistant commissioner of the Malaysian state’s Criminal Investigation Department, explained to reporters that the man, who works as a mechanic in Balakong, returned home to tell his parents about the theory of an impending doomsday.

The man cut off his father’s genitals in an attempt to channel a spirit into his father’s body, something the man said could only be done by making his father cry, Manoharan explained. The son also reportedly attempted to force his brother-in-law to do the same, but the man escaped unharmed.

If channeling the spirit could only be achieved by having the father cry, maybe he should have just tried punching him real hard first. Mutilating his father penis juuuuust seems a bit extreme. Apparently the man was studying some “deviant religious texts”. Obviously.

According to this Huffington Post piece, this stuff does happen sometimes. The father is in critical condition. The son underwent surgery to have the member re-attached.

    Well, if it was on the Internet, it must be true.

    Look up the Russian Skopzy sect on the internet. I didn’t realise they had followers in Malaya.
