We are having a boy at the end of Sept. I will admit I knew nothing of it until I started reading the Anti circ board here on MDC. I never understood the big deal.
Then I started readng.
Holy cow-what an eye opener!
When I mentioned this to DH, he said b/c he was, he wanted our son to also be circ'd.
FINALLY last week, after reading and talking to the GP,DH finally agreed not to do it. All his reasons why it was necessary were shot down easily and especially the cleanliness issue!
So no, "Nemo" won't be cut. His body-his choice.
Circumcision in america is not how the religious starts intended it to be. And some religions such as Christianity actually forbid the act because Jesus came to remove the blood sacrifices and put them on his shoulders.

Is that true?!? I am not Christian, so I don't know a whole lot about the "rules." What I know about is circ for Jews in the old testament, because of dh. But I know a TON of Christians who do circumcise, I thought they felt like they were supposed to. Where is that part about about blood sacrifices? Is circ even considered a "blood sacrifice," it's a covenant with God for Jews, isn't that something different?
