    My younger brothers were circumcised medically and I still remember the pain they went through afterwards. It was quite upsetting seeing as they were only young.

    I don't intend on circumcising my children in the future because it's a pretty useless procedure, imo.

    Very true. Christians in Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone (where most people are either Christian or Muslim) are circumcised at birth, and they are in many other African countries - even in non-African countries like South Korea and the Philippines, circumcision is the norm. And that doesn't even include loads of teenage guys in China, Malaysia and Japan, who often choose circumcision before they start dating girls, and recommend it to their friends. In Japan, it's cheap and strongly approved of by girls for hygiene reasons. In China, there are circumcision ads on giant posters, and in buses, trains and subways...

    what is the majority? And we you talking about in britain?
    No i'm not talking about in Britain, but most people who get circumcised end up marrying someone from their ethnic back background, and to do so they would have to e circumcised.

    Jesus was not circumcised like they do it today. Jews traditionally would just draw a tiny amount of blood from the head of the penis, no cutting. The Bible forbids circumcision. The idiot John Kellogs(yes the cornflake man) was the one who made the removal of the foreskin 'popular' to stop boys from masturbating. It should be banned, there is no medical reason for it for healthy baby's and children, its torture and needs to stop.

    That is an inflammatory anti-semitic comment which I find most disgusting and invasive of my rights as a semite.

    It was actually a pretty sensible comment.
