"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?"

"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."
