Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

just a bump b/c I read a cringe worthy account from a mom who was present for the procedure and now feel like throwing up.

I read that too and was sick that it was discussed as a success.

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

9. The new testament specifically says that Christians are not supposed to be circumcised. See Galatians 5:6. In short, circumcision was the old covenant and Jesus the new covenant. There are even Jews who reject circumcision.


I read through this original post and looked up Galatians 5:6 and don't see where it says that Christians are not supposed to be circumcised? I agree that the Mosaic Law ended with Jesus and so the requirement for circumcision ended, but Gal 5:6 does not say Christians are not suppose to be circumcised. I even looked it up in a couple translations just to make sure.

". . . neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision . . . " KJV

It says ". . . neither circumcision is of any value nor is uncircumcision . . . " NWT

I think all the other points are interesting, very valid and true. If I had another baby and it was a boy, I doubt we'd circ. Just wondering about the validity of the Biblical argument.

What account is this? Although Im afraid to read it anyway.

Yes I saw on FB that The Ricki show is doing a show about circumcision, I missed most of the show because my stupid cable guide listed it as showing tomorrow. I dvr'ed the last half but havent been able to watch it.

However most people who have seen it said it was too biased towards pro-circing and she sorta skirted around the issue as a whole trying to not offend anyone (as in the majority of her viewing audience, typical ignorant Americans who dont even question it, I was one of those before I gave birth to my son, but thankfully was open to learning and saved my son from being cut).
It really saddens me, especially since she's so pro natural/homebirth and women's rights to birth/body yadda yadda. Hmm good enough for women but not our baby boys so sad.

I'm watching it right now. It's pretty disappointing. I was really hoping with her natural minded nature it would be better.
