Actually, only ~50% of boys in the U.S. are circumcised, and the number decreases each year. The procedure is hardly ever performed on non-Jewish, non-Muslim boys in other western countries. Christianity does not require or even encourage circumcision. In fact, Jesus was circumcised as he was Jewish, not because it was ideal for his followers to be so.
I am a Christian, and will not be circumcising any of my children, boys or girls. The boy's father is absolutely right. A foreskin is not a birth defect, and should not be removed willy-nilly!
