The whole subject for me is summed up in one statement:

Elective surgery performed on people without their consent ... for reasons of STYLE. And they do it to BABIES.

Since my first child was born before my wife and I got married and before my wife converted to Judaism the first child had to have a drop of blood taken out of his penis. Since he was already circumcised at the hospital there had to be a symbolic ritual to compare to an Orthodox circumcision. So they had to take a small needle and prick the tip of the penis to draw a drop of blood. This was then collected and supposedly was good enough to count as a Jewish circumcision. As you can imagine, after this I really starting questioning my religion and I believe that this is where my 'fall' started!

Great video, thanks for posting this. I love it when Hitchens goes on the offensive. He wields his intellect like a weapon and eviscerates the rabbi's paltry defense of genital mutilation.

Interesting video.

With or without religion, good people can behave well and bad people can do evil; but for good people to do evil - that takes religion.

Bravo!~
Thank you for posting this.
I am appalled at the frequency that circumcision is performed on baby boys as a matter of course in the US. You have to tell the doctors not to, or they will by default!
