Castration

In many other, goyish religions (which should not be compared to Judaism, lehavdil), even though they recognize the danger of sexuality, they think that the solution is castration.

Castration is not the solution! It is clear from numerous passages throughout the Torah-- the Written Torah and the Oral Torah, which really just form two limbs of one soul-- that castration is forbidden.

Vayikro 22:24, in Parshas Emor, makes it clear that it is forbidden to castrate an animal (sheep or dog) or a male human. And it is clear from our sages' interpretation in the Oral Law that it is forbidden to castrate a female human, as well.

No, Raboisai! To castrate is to run away from the issue of s*xuality by committing another aveiro, not to conquer it. If a man (for example, though also a woman or child, or even an animal) thinks that he can please God by castrating himself, this is wrong! It is like someone who wants to be healthier by losing weight, so he decides to kill his appetite by smoking ciggarettes. Shoiteh! Don't you realize that ciggarettes are just as dangerous to your health as being obese?

No, just as the dieter must live and suffer with his appetite, so must the good Jew (or even goy) suffer with the presence of the genitalia, which God created in order to tempt you, but you can receive great reward if you don't give in. The difference, however, between the dieter and the frum Yid, is that the dieter must swear off some food, but still eat a little, whereas the frum Jew must swear off all s*xual satisfaction, whether from a man, a woman, or himself, forever! Always.

What you're basically saying is that there should've been no generation to enter the holy land after the generation in the wilderness died out.


Which makes a lie of the entire Torah mi Sinai idea.

Also you imply that the sinful should inherit the earth, as the good should cease procreating altogether.

A very novel idea.

How do Essenes breed?

Did you lose a ball or something?

Besides Jesus, I can't think of a major bibical figure who did not have sex. Of course, according to their point of view, even God got into the act.

M-N, LOL.

This is fascinating:

How does the goy's approach differ from the Jews approach according to the sages on this issue of castration?
