"Dunno, because there's lots of scripture about not needing to do it. I'm uncircumcised, and sure am glad my parents realized it was a sign of the old covenant... heck of a thing to give up, but I guess most people born and shortly…"

"Hm.  I'm Roman Catholic, and have spent a fair amount of time, and this is the first I've heard of either church opposing circumcision.   I wonder why they never told me?"

"I found this little video on the subject. :) Why you are circumcised can I just add that although not forbidden It is strongly frowned upon in most Christian traditions - Catholic, Orthodox and Anglican."

"We have to keep in mind, when discussing ancient middle eastern circumcision that what they practiced then and what we practice now are vastly different. In ancient Egypt, for example, it seems that only those training for the priesthood were…"

"It might not be fear but it seems strange for sure that there are such long debattes about boys dicks. Especially since this isnt the only thread about that topic."

"No one is afraid of foreskins.  Saying such wild and clearly untrue things doesn't make the other side look like fanatics who'll say silly things -- or need to -- to support their beliefs."

David R. replied to Ben's discussion To circumcise or not?
"It is hard for American sources to be impartial, given our history of routine infant circumcision.  As I've mentioned before, Europe, Canada, and Australia cannot understand our fear of the foreskin.  It is not a birth defect that…"

"Ignorants will do what they will do, and when they do, they will be slapped down by the rest of us. The part that kills me is that by and large when an act of terror occurs, the Islamic community is silent."
