Yeah, ok. Because we practice different religion here in the US. That's why we have some of the highest circ rates. Christians in Europe don't circ, how do you explain that?
If it roots from religion, that is...

Circ in the US is cultural. Its done by doctors not religious leaders. Peolle do it because "that's what you do to boys". I'm first generation American. No males in my family were till the ones birn here. My uncles wife told him they needed to and that's what americans do. No religion involved. He let his boys be circed. He now regrets it very much.

I'm mobile.... sorry for the typos!
