All these arguments over what is right or wrong, to me seem pointless. The crux of the matter is the child has no choice. And to me that is where
Germany got it right, if you want to be circumcised that is your choice, however enforcing it on a child is wrong. I don't care how long it has been
a tradition it is still wrong.
What if a new religion took hold, its followers devote and fervent, and they believed that a a new born baby must have its left eye cut out so as not
to offend their god, would it be ok to then start cutting babies eyes out? The fact that it is tradition and been done for thousands of years does not
make it right. Human sacrifices have been done for thousands of years in the name of religion so should we allow human sacrifice? Heck the church used
to castrate young boys so their voices would not break and they could continue to sing for god in the choir, perhaps we should keep that going
I have two sons, one is circumcised and one is not, one being done for medical reasons and the only reason I would of let it been done, I happen to
love my kids and would not allow any form of surgical procedure unless there was a purely medical reason, mutilating them for some religious belief is
beyond comprehension to me.
The simple answer to this question is, if no one was circumcised, how many in later life, when they are capable of making a rational adult choice
would then choose to have it done? I feel fairly certain the vast majority would not. I know there are many here who have been circumcised and say it
does not bother them, and I do believe them, however having been circumcised as a baby you have grown up and become used to being that way, I assure
you if you had a foreskin and grown up used to it being there (as nature intended) you would not be in any rush to have it cut off.
And as for those finding it "Smelly" might I suggest you find people ho bathe more I can assure you mine does not smell at all
