It's barbaric like in a horror movie, a tradition brought in by the jews. A baby feels this mutilation. Mothers who allow this to be done to their children are either stupid, insensitive or don't love thier child. Besides, it looks ugly.
Hello Ursula, Interesting perspective, You should actually read more medical statistics before you post, and your racist comments make your whole point even weaker.
First of all, most places use local anesthesia, and the majority of countries today where circumcision is practiced are non-Jewish countries and also non-muslim. ;-)
Circumcision has been practiced for thousands of years by people in Egypt before Islam ever existed, by some North American Indian tribes and by many tribes in Africa.
"Mother's who allow this to be done to their children are either stupid, insensitive, or don't love their child." LOL. So what about Mary, the mother of Jesus?? Which one was it for her??
And what about Peter's mother, and all the other apostles the Catholic church claim as saints??
I don't know if your village has access to high speed internet or not, or if you can do a Google search?
The MAYO Clinic is one of the most widely-known and respected clinics in the world, and It is located in the USA. They cite multiple medical benefits of circumcision, including lower rates of cervical cancer for women in countries where circumcision is routinely practiced, and significantly lower rates of HIV among men who are circumcised.
I don't expect you have heard of the Journal of American Medical Association, or the CDC Center for Disease Control, just to name a few.
You have the right to believe that an circumcised penis is ugly -- and anything else you want, but your charge that mothers and fathers who allow this are stupid, or don't love their child, is baseless, and makes you sound like a Wiesniak. It is because they choose to look at the medical benefits and because we love our children, and we care about the future wives of the boys, that we do this.
There is a reason that the lowest rates of cervical cancer in the world are the same countries where circumcision is routinely practiced, and it is not because we don't eat kaszanka.
