CWN Editor's Note: A Coptic Orthodox bishop has spoken out strongly against genital mutilation of females, a practice that remains common in Africa. Bishop Anba Moussa insisted that there is no religious justification for the practice, and certainly no such justification in the Bible. His speech condemning the practice has been widely circulated in Egypt, where President Abdel al Sisi has approved tougher criminal penalties for genital mutilation.
