Some Sex Offenders Opt for Castration
- By GERALDINE SEALEY
Surgery is most likely to work for offenders whose sex drive motivates their crimes, such as pedophiles or those aroused by coercive sex, Berlin says. But offenders who commit sex crimes for other reasons , Those who lack a conscience or abuse drugs or alcohol, “probably won’t benefit from surgery.”Some victims rights groups and law enforcement also argue that offenders could nullify the surgery later!
Matthew 19:12 ESV For there are eunuchs who have been so from birth, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Let the one who is able to receive this receive it.”
Acts 8:26-40 ESV /
Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, “Rise and go toward the south to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” This is a desert place. And he rose and went. And there was an Ethiopian, a eunuch, a court official of Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, who was in charge of all her treasure. He had come to Jerusalem to worship and was returning, seated in his chariot, and he was reading the prophet Isaiah. And the Spirit said to Philip, “Go over and join this chariot.” And Philip ran hither to him. and heard him read the prophet E-sa-ias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest? And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was LED AS A SHEEP TO THE SLAUGHTER; AND LIKE A LAMB DUMB BEFORE HIS SHEARER, SO OPENED HE NOT HIS MOUTH: IN HIS HUMILIATION HIS JUDGMENT WAS TAKEN AWAY: AND WHO SHALL DECLARE HIS GENERATION? FOR HIS LIFE IS TAKEN FROM THE EARTH.
And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? Of himself, or some other man? Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. And as they went on their way. They came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him. And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing. But Philip was found at A-zo-tus: and passing through he preached in all the cities, till he came to Caes-a-re-a.
That eunuch of the New testament could relate to Jesus and so he followed him. I dare say the eunuchs of today can equally relate to this passage if they heard it and would love to experience the freedom given by redemption. That is, if we still know how to give it.
The eunuchs of the Bible were usually castrated males or those incapable of reproduction due to a birth defect. A eunuch could also be someone who performed work typical of eunuchs, although he remained perfectly capable of having sex—i.e., “eunuch” in some cases was simply a title.
Now imagine the title of eunuch is given to a man because he can not produce or is ordered not to produce. He is asked to perform work typical of the eunuch or castrated man. Do you know what that work is according to the BIBLE and archaic ideals? The eunuch was the *keeper of the couch*. He laid about the palace and tended to the women and nurse maids and kept the palace clean. Though he was ordered not to produce. I dare say that in this country most of our American men have been made eunuch’s not only physically by the by-laws of a twisted DOJ system. Alas by the impediment of excessive government regulations. How many of your young boys have been sitting around your homes nearing the age of retirement yet still do not know what it is they desire from this world or are lacking direction that builds up there esteem?
That would be the definition of a castrated man, a eunuch, a keeper of the couch.
How many have tuned into the TLC programming that suggests the “new-age-father” that stays at home with the children, while the women brings in the pay-check and controls the job market in this new secular ideal world, can honestly say they can not relate to the feeling of being made less than when they compare there lives to that of the ideal of the bible?
The term eunuch (/ˈjuːnək/; Greek: εὐνοῦχος) generally refers to a man who has been castrated, typically early enough in his life for this change to have major hormonal consequences. In some ancient texts, “eunuch” may also refer to a man who is not castrated but who is impotent, celibate, or otherwise not inclined to marry and procreate. In Latin, the words eunuchus, spado (Greek: σπάδων spadon), and castratus were used to denote eunuchs.
Castration was typically carried out on the soon-to-be eunuch without his consent in order that he might perform a specific social function; this was common in many societies. The earliest records for intentional castration to produce eunuchs are from the Sumerian city of Lagash in the 21st century BC. Over the millennia since, they have performed a wide variety of functions in many different cultures: courtiers or equivalent domestics, treble singers, religious specialists, soldiers, royal guards, government officials, and guardians of women or harem servants.
Eunuchs would usually be servants or slaves who had been castrated in order to make them reliable servants of a royal court where physical access to the ruler could wield great influence.[additional citation needed] Seemingly lowly domestic functions—such as making the ruler’s bed, bathing him, cutting his hair, carrying him in his litter, or even relaying messages—could in theory give a eunuch “the ruler’s ear” and impart de facto power on the formally humble but trusted servant. Similar instances are reflected in the humble origins and etymology of many high offices (e.g., chancellor originally denoted a servant guarding the entrance to an official’s study).
Eunuchs supposedly did not generally have loyalties to the military, the aristocracy, or to a family of their own (having neither offspring nor in-laws, at the very least), and were thus seen as more trustworthy and less interested in establishing a private ‘dynasty’. Because their condition usually lowered their social status, they could also be easily replaced or killed without repercussion. In cultures that had both harems and eunuchs, eunuchs were sometimes used as harem servants (compare the female odalisque) or seraglio guards.
