    Vocalist wanted for Skoptsy band

    This band is a living testimony to Skoptsy; a Christian Sect which originated in Imperial Russia around 1771 ad. We differentiate ourselves from mainstream Christian groups, who we feel indulge in temptation and demonstrate flagrant disregard for God's just and final expulsion from the Garden of Eden as punishment for our original sin. We therefore choose, in aligning with His will, to take responsibility for the removal of fruit which has been placed on our bodies in the form of sexual organs. There are two kinds of castration: the "lesser" and "greater seal" (i.e. partial and complete castration). For men, "lesser" castration is the removal of the testicles only, while "greater" castration was the removal of the penis as well. We, the Skoptsy maintain that we are fulfilling Christ's counsel of perfection in Matthew 19:12 and 18:8,9. For women, the breasts are amputated and the labia is also removed.

    We don't play music with others outside our faith and practice. Not even "regular" Christians. Sorry, don't apply.

    All that assumed, this band is going for a very "ballsy" sound. Must be able to sing 2 octaves above middle 'C' in full voice.












    :p Well played, Craigslist poster.

    I read that ad twice and can't believe the poster is serious. I have nothing against religion, but I feel like they take it to the extreme.

  9. I'm pretty sure this is in jest.

    What's funny is the limited vision of the Skoptsy cult. Kind of hard to keep your sect going when you can't reproduce!!

    Ummm.... Going for ballsy tone without balls?

    Have fun with that.
     
  13. The Skoptsy cult was real, but according to internet research, it died out in the mid 20th century. I think the poster is having some fun.
     
  14. Yeah, I mean, it's pretty obvious this is not serious... Pretty funny actually :D

    Doesn't seem that different than any other "christian rock" group to me... aside from the removal of the scrumdiddlyumptious.
