    Re: Circumsision

    I find it interesting that many people who are pro-life are also pro-mutilation. Maybe their motto is: if you can't torture them, why have them!
    Circumcision is a barbaric ritual, but then, that's a large portion of the human species for you - contradictory and violent.

    Re: Circumsision

    I well remember my first born's circumcision.

    He couldn't have it done at birth for personal reasons so he was 3 months old and we met the doctor at the hospital for the procedure.

    The doctor took him and said to us to walk to the very end of the hospital.

    I had no idea what he meant as I was young and naive and assumed he would have been given a local anesthetic.........

    boy was I wrong.....I heard my son scream so loud I was in shock!

    never again....it's sheer torture on an infant or anyone!

    When my son was born it was just routine. I don't remember even being asked about it.

    I've known a few men who have had it done for medical reasons, later in life. And they found it very painful.... I can imagine.
    I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.
    Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.

    I was circumcised, but we spared my son the procedure. The funny thing is that my wife and I were fundamental Christians at the time of his birth (we did it at home with only fellowship members present) and not even any of us saw any reason for circumcision because we interpreted the practice as Old Testament doctrine.

    Re: Circumsision

    the group that was protesting for the change in the San Francisco law called themselves "intanctivists". It was rather amusing hearing the same tired old arguments to protect the status quo.

    Re: Circumsision

    The medical arguments put forward by those in favour are the funniest and says a lot about them as individuals and their strange concerns. As a cure for masterbatuion for instance, nowadays we would see such fascination with the subject as ever so slightly disturbing if not outright perverted.

    Dr. John Harvey Kellogg
    A remedy for masturbation which is almost always successful in small boys is circumcision, especially when there is any degree of phimosis. The operation should be performed by a surgeon without administering anaesthetic, as the pain attending the operation will have a salutary effect upon the mind, especially if it be connected with the idea of punishmen
    Only religion could convince someone to take a knife and cut bits of a baby for it's own good.

    And an exemplary article in yesterday's Guardian. Bang on, a perfect summary, I commend it.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    A few years back I had a urinary tract infection that cleared up after a pill or two. My doc then wanted to do a circumcision right then. I said screw that. So far, so good.
