"A man has been accused of encouraging hundreds of followers to be castrated in a promise for them to become closer to God.
Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, an Indian pop-star and telepreacher with a reported wealth of more than $50 million, is being investigated after he allegedly manipulated around 400 men to get their testicles removed " according to India Today."
There are more gurus, swamis, and New Age charlatans in India than you can shake a stick at, you couldn`t pay me enough to visit that godforsaken country.
Gurmmet Ram Rahim Singh is the head of the Dera Sacha Sauda organization/religious cult. Singh`s testicles are still intact, so by his own reckoning he`s not very close to God.
Singh is a pop star and telepreacher with many Bollywood style videos posted on YouTube.
If a spiritual guru told me that if I cut off my testicles I would be closer to God, I would kick him in the nuts so hard that he would see stars and I would see Jesus giving me a big thumbs up.
I can`t say I feel any sympathy for the disciples who followed this shaman`s advice to undergo castration; at least they won`t be fathering any morons.
