This practice of blood sucking has led to the spread of disease and infant mortality. In addition, studies show the medical benefits of circumcision are negligible, at best, blood sucking or not.

As a Godless Liberal, what are your feelings about the practice of male circumcision on infants.

I'm anti-smegma ... .


Okay, but, there's no need to alter genitalia. Cleanliness is one of the main reasons given for female circumcision as well. The prepuce/foreskin is a moist environment , which produces secretions, therefore they sew the woman's labia shut after removing the clitoris.

However, many women choose not mutilate their daughters and instead suggest splashing a bit of water on the area.

Don't you think it's odd to say that the human body has evolved for the best, yet the one thing we need to do is cut the gentitals?

Silly Americans !!

The blood sucking thing seems to be YET another attempt of FUD.


Not sure what you mean by "FUD." Do you mean fear, uncertainty and doubt strategies? If so, that implies the spreading of false and dubious information.

Not all people of the jewish Faith have said they will suck blood. But, as you can see by the article Hitchens wrote for Slate, some Rabbis have refused to stop the practice.

...help stem the tide of AIDS in East Africa.

I don't miss my foreskin. And there are more important things to do than to worry about whether or not you have a dirty penis or not.

You may want to know exactly how those African studies were conducted.

Americans are always looking for a reason to continue circumcising males for pseudo-scientific reasons. Past reasons have included being a supposed cure for: mental retardation, epilepsy, masturbation, blindness and club-foot.

Both Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins have spoken out about this barbaric act. The issue of whether blood is sucked or not - which it sometimes is -is a red herring, As Christopher Hitchens states "Genital Mutilation is no joke."

Is it a coincidence that Hitchens & Dawkins are American are from countries where circumcision is only routinely practiced for religious reasons? Therefore these two men haven't been brainwashed in to thinking mutilating a functioning body part is something parents have a right to do?

They believe it's barbaric because it is.

Quoting gary100:
I think the notion that Rabbis practice "sucking the blood" is highly exaggerated and the practice is probably very rare, the rantings of this Rabbi aside. I don't think atheists should be involved as a movement with spreading exaggeration and social prejudice and racism. This strikes me as the old tactic of the "blood libel." Through the centuries various stigmatized social groups or religious groups have been accused of killing or feeding on babies. It's a scurrilous accusation. Is this the kind of "Carl Rove" style rumor mongering that the anti-circumcision has stooped to? - Gary


It's true that it's a small minority of those in the Jewish faith who practice Mestitzah, (sucking the blood of the baby) but it is an accepted practice in some parts of the Jewish community.

slate.com/.../cut_it_off.html

However, there are a few people in Jewish Community who are proposing replacing the traditional bris with "Brit Shalom" which is a naming ceremony.
One of these people is Rabbi Donald Pollock, who is also a psychologist:
" We must examine whether our rites are right. We must determine if our ceremonies, traditions, and practices reflect our innermost beliefs. Asking ourselves and each other the question 'Why?' is one of the most sacred tasks to which a modern Jew can dedicate himself or herself.”

This guy speaks complete bullshit. Antiseptic qualities of saliva? We have one of the dirtiest mouths of the animal kingdom. Our mouths are full of bacteria that could kill most animals with a simple kiss, and this guy would like to suggest that you put a human mouth on an open wound! It'd be just as effective to let your dog lick it.
