An exclusive judgment of the Landgericht Köln refers to a widespread medical procedure carried out for religious reasons: According to the circumcision of boys in the future worth of a bodily injury. Matthias Ruch
Who cuts boys for religious reasons is liable to prosecution for assault. This decided the regional court in Cologne in a landmark judgment, which the FTD is present. Neither the parents nor the right to freedom of religion guaranteed in the Basic Law can justify this procedure, the court clearly in his ruling.
This is the first time a German court the religious custom of punishment.Every year in Germany, several thousand boys are circumcised in their early years at the request of parents. In the U.S., even the majority of boys - largely independent of the religion - circumcised right after birth. Also, there is forming now but massive resistance to this practice.Worldwide, about one-quarter of all men are circumcised.
"The court has - unlike many politicians - not to be deterred by the fear of being criticized as anti-Semitic and anti-religious," praised Putzke. "This decision could not only shape the future case, but lead in the best case with the concerned religions to a shift in consciousness, to respect fundamental rights of children."
"Islam is part of Germany." Sein Nachfolger Joachim Gauck variierte: " His successor, Joachim Gauck varied: "The Muslims who live here belong to Germany."Some Muslims might interpret the Cologne verdict as a step backwards now.

It is the attempt to kill religious culture. The problem with the Jewish religion is that it stands in the way of having a one world government. The globalists cannot stand for groups to have their own personal identity apart from the state.
The state thinks nothing of giving a child a vaccination, which will leave a permanent scar, and expose the infant to definite medical risks. But in that case it is OK because the state is making the choice for an infant and its family. The state cannot stand a competitor (synagogue), vying for authority over anyone's life, even self-imposed.

Religion? How about hygiene?
The anti-circumcision folks are some of the biggest frikin morons out there. Every time I hear some dumbass woman talking about how it tortures baby boys I want to hit them.
I especially love the claims about it "improving sex", despite the act of removing a foreskin removes a significant part of the nerve endings in the penis, plus I do wonder how anyone could possibly know circumcised sex is better than uncircumcised as they have never tried it!
