I'm not sure if this has been mentioned but the original biblical circ and the circ we do nowadays is VERY different. Biblical circ took a small amount of skin but the penis was still mostly covered, especially the glands. Modern circ cuts away far more and exposes more of the penis. So, technically, if you are trying to follow what you believe is the biblical way, you should study up on that! (and there was a reason they did it on the 8th day and not the day of or day after birth!)

We have one son that is and one son that isn't. I feel horrible about circing but I was totally uninformed and thought everyone did it! It did not go well and that's what led me to do more research!!!

Agreed, and god help the customer who asks this question during my cloth diaper orientation sessions. Protect the baby, not the diapers!

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

Can't say how many times I have shared this thread, and how many times it has made people rethink their decision. I have at least two friends and a cousin who are no longer considering circ'ing.

This!! Great post!! In fact, from what I remember studying, the biblical circ was just a cut?

We are a non-circ'ng family but the idea of circ'ing because the Bible says so looks soo much different that what modern days circumcision looks like. Thanks for this.

Always living by this- if you wouldn't circumcise your daughter why would you circumcise your son? God please protect our sons.

Sadly, I think this is the angle intactivists will have to take to move forward with any illegalization of male circumcision. Maybe a label law that requires beauty products to disclose exactly what is in it, and do it from a 'stem cell' background so it gets passed easily?

I can't imagine people will still want to use face creams if they know they're putting baby foreskins on them, and hopefully that will cause companies to stop using buying it.
