Wow! Not a single comment?

I honestly expected a tsunami of commentary from my last blog entry, but I guess that everyone realizes that forced circumcision to anyone, boy or girl, whether or not allowed by their parents or not, should be a crime against humanity.

Due to the press we're getting, online discussion/commentary sections connected to them reveal the true pulse of the public, even when the article is clearly not in favour of the MGM Bill! I'll have more on the MGM Bill in my next post... until then, allow me to tell you about something else going on:

just to clarify -I know some people choose Circumcision for their child as an obedience to their Faith.

How are they considering this issue?

Check out the interview we had on FOX News nationwide, just yesterday.

My following post has links to blogs containing both favourable and unfavourable viewpoints to the MGM Bill, but it's important to know (if you're Jewish) that there is a STRONG movement AGAINST circumcision (one website is jewsagainstcircumcision.org/), and that G-d did not mandate circumcision. In the original version of the Torah, the book of J, circumcision is not even mentioned. Fallible men devised circumcision as a way to curb masturbation. Even Rabbi Maimonides acknowledged this fact.

I'm sure some Muslims aren't happy they can't circumcise baby girls in this country also -- but the law over-rules religion when it involved a third party (for example: Christian Scientists can't keep a sick child in their care apart from medical necessities.)

Yes, this law may be difficult for some to accept, but keep in mind that Jewish Law has exceptions for circumcision, and in the case where a circumcision is NOT performed by 13, the responsibility of getting circumcised falls on the owner of the penis (who can go to Israel and have it done and kill two birds with one stone, or await until they are 18).

If a Jew honestly believes that a radical circumcision is a covenant between them and their G-d, would it not be a more honourable thing to do but be in full consent and agreement with the procedure for your G-d? Doing it as an infant, when you can't consent or cop-out doesn't show much faith... does it?

The Jewish People (even more so than many other religions) believe in following The Letter of Their Law given too them by God. I do see that this would be a BIG Problem for many of them.

(I worked with Jewish Congregations in the past and am intimately aware of their Faith and Practices).

the the Bible is is Commanded by God - and even many of the early Christians held High Priority in getting a young male circumcised.

I would hope many would follow this-it would resolve issues.

(of course many parents are still concerned that if their child was to die young...)

It's not like baptism -- there's no "you can't get into Heaven if you're not circumcised" idea.

On the other hand, the reason many have not responded to the blog posts is that there's clearly no point.
