How to discuss non-circ with Muslim family? - Page 3

post #41 of 46
T Continuing the off-topic responses to Frank. Whom I know is a hero around this board, so am treading very lightly here.

Why else I'd be bothering with this I surely don't know.

:








Frank. Duh. I know there are no commands for sacrifices in Christianity.

Since you insist on "misunderstanding" me, I will elaborate in one line: Christianity does the whole Jesus-Sacrificed-For-Our-Sins thing. "This is my body, this is my blood." That's what I meant.

Jews don't "do" blood. And you know it. You just want to rile me up.

Am conscious of the ease-of-riling of my pg hormones, so am going to make the effort not to be riled up



Read the rest of my post, Frank, it's an answer to your question.

Jews don't do blood sacrifices either. Haven't for 2,000 years.
Bris has nothing to do with blood sacrifices, Frank. Live and learn.

Oh, and as usual, appreciating the kind suggestion that my G!d is evil and that yours is loving. Jesus might take issue with that, sir. Since his G!d was mine.

Not living in glass houses here or throwing stones, Frank. Now stop throwing them at me and mine, please.

Not to hi-jack this thread, but damn i hate religion i swear, it's so damn annoying and no one can ever get along. I'm not flaming you guys, i love you guys, i'm just kinda getting out my anger over bible-thumpers and this is the perfect oppurtunity i guess.
Sorry i'm just pissed tonight over people's ignorance over the usual....., circ, vegetarianism, me?

OK, STOP PLEASE BOTH OF YOU! Amy and Frank, I like both of you a lot and although I think both of you are coming from well-intentioned places PLEASE STOP. Both of you know perfectly well that this discussion is against the rules, and while I admit to a certain sick voyeuristic pleasure in watching you two duel it out YOU KNOW IT'S AGAINST THE RULES and one of these days might get one of you kicked off, which would be a crying shame for everyone.



So just stop, or take it to PM. This is not the place for it.

Amy:

I have no goal to rile you up. You really don't even come up on my radar screen except when you come here and inject your religion into the discussion. I only respond to you. I really don't understand why you can't stay away from this discussion. It always comes to the same thing. This site purposely tries to stay away from any religious discussion.

Saying that ritual circumcision is a blood rite is totally correct. It is the shedding of blood for religious purposes. Please tell me which part is incorrect. Is it not for religious purposes or is there no blood shed? If both are correct, then it is a blood ritual. If it walks on four feet, has a tail that wags and barks, it is a dog.

This thread is entirely about dissuading people of varying religious beliefs from circumcision. Read the thread title. The Muslims and Jews who posted here *all* tried to do it sensitively and with tact.

And in this thread *all* of my posts were in direct response to *your* questions. If you wouldn't have asked the questions, I wouldn't have attempted answers. Unless your questions were meant to be rhetorical and purely for baiting purposes.

You don't merit attention on my radar either, Frank. As long as you don't spread misinformation and distortion about me and mine.

I am closing this until I can figure out what to do with it.
