Someone stated that if we allow male infant circ. for religious reasons, then we must allow female circ as well. What religion demands the circ. of women?
ETA: I honestly don't know why these threads pop up. Really, is this serious questioning? You will never be comfortable with religious circ and you will never convince those of us who do it that there is something wrong with our God or our scriptures or our interpretations of those scriptures, especially since you rarely know enough about our religious beliefs to engage in any serious discussion of the issue. So why bother?
I know the general assumption is that religious people are stupid, unfeeling, unthinking. I love the CONSTANT accusation that we won't "explore our beliefs" or struggle with them etc, because anyone who knows anything about meaningful faith knows that it is a constant struggle, an intellectual endeavor, an true journey involving the mind primarily. Yes, it is possible for people to have faith and disagree with you and still use their minds and hearts. There, that's it. It's possible.
