How long will it be before they start crying “anti-semitic!”

Boys have Human Rights, not just religious people.

I think it’s time that some Jewish religious practices caught up with the rest of the world. This archaic, and unsanitary practice reminds me of the widespread, and regular use of leaches to bleed folks and get rid of all that “bad blood” (oooh boogeyman). However, in deference to science and medical advances, we gave that up GENERATIONS AGO. I’m not saying give up circumcision, or the basic ceremony, just some of the accompanying nonsense. Although, maybe giving up the circumcision itself, isn’t a bad idea either, now that we know about the importance of washing thoroughly.

Religion and tradition are no excuses. Imagine if the Aztecs were still sacrificing human beings to the Sun god, just because it is their religion and tradition

Always good for government to set religious rules. First Ammendment needs to be updated, anyway?

Freedom of religion doesn’t mean freedom to transmit diseases. Mohels should have to take a blood test before they can do this.

What government hypocrisy! Everything else done to a child is considered abuse, but mutilation isn’t?!
