Mat­thew 19:12

Misreadings of that and other verses in the same gospel have, since 1967, been linked to "three par­tially or fully am­pu­tat­ed pe­nises; four pairs of cas­trat­ed tes­ti­cles; three am­pu­tat­ed hands and 11 se­verely dam­aged eye­balls" — Gospel of Matthew linked to bizarre trail of self-mutilations.

That's an average of one self-severed penis every fifteen years in a country of hundreds of millions. That's hardly moral panic material, but expect the atheists to try to get what they can out of this.
