    Yet another a shining example of Muslim culture.

    So many possible punch lines that I'm speechless.

    No. I think they are only putting one in place.

    I don't get it.

    Either you are a virgin or not.

    And Mohammed knows.

    Or, are they saying a surgeon can fool Mohammed?

    It's awful. I don't agree with it, and I will never understand it. But I also don't sit in judgement and insult an entire religion.

    It does seem a bit odd that these women will willingly lie to their future husband to be by getting a surgery like this. Never mind the way it flouts their religious beliefs in the first place.

    The story makes it sound like the sex act is the climax, so to speak, of the wedding for both the couple and the family. Does the bride come out and hold up the bloody sheets for everyone to see?
    Instead of a garter or bouquet, do Islamic brides toss a used condom over their shoulder?

    Are the girls getting the surgery virgins? Just... loose ones?

    Yet another model of Christian charity and understanding.

    That whole Least of My Brothers thing must've really sunk in.

    It's a big deal to get married not as a virgin in the Muslim culture. It's also bad to get divorced, but obviously those things happen all the time.

    I know that. But wouldn't it be equally a big deal to lose your virginity, regain it and lie about it to your spouse? Big, at least from a moral perspective.

    I bet there are plenty of good girls here in the U.S. who forget about certain events in their lives if virginity is important to their potential husbands. That said, those potential husbands probably don't ask for the V card from the doctor.
