Buddhist monk cuts off penis...


...and the monk refuses to have his penis reattached after he chopped off his own penis with a machete because he developed an erection during meditation, reports Bangkok-based Kom Chad Luk tabloid on its Web site.

After the Thai Buddhist monk cut off his penis with a machete because he had an erection during meditation, he refused to have the penis sewn back on because the monk reportedly told doctors that "he had renounced all earthly cares."

The 35-year-old monk -- whose name has not been released -- let doctors at Maharaj hospital care for the wound left from severing his penis, but refused to have the penis sewn back on.

I can understand this drastic behavior a bit, though he's Buddhist and probably doesn't live by Jesus' edict that "If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, where the fire never goes out" that some peope interpret literally.

But I wish the monk who chopped off his own penis had studied also the Book of Solomon, a book of the Bible that my dad called practically X-rated, with its glorious pro-sex attitude toward married, holy sex. Maybe then the monk would've realized that sexual feelings can be healthily expressed in a better manner, instead of walking around with a missing member that he might later regret having chopped off.
