Neither of my sons are circumsised.

@Chely: As far as getting infections is concerned it's not an issue as long as children are taught proper cleaning. My childrens Doctor told us that there is no medical need to circumsise a baby. Your nephews problems are rare. Neither of my children nor my husband (who is also uncircumcised) has ever had that type of infection, or any infection involving the penis or urinary tract at all.

Anyway, it's a personal choice and there is nothing wrong with either choice. Crowes rant is way off base and overboard.


Chely, the Christian bible is against circumcision. Have you ever read it? Try these: Acts 15; Galatians 2:1-3; 5:1-11; 6:11-16; 1 Corinthians 7:17-20; Colossians 2:8-12; Philippians 3:1-3

(And no, I'm not Christian, so it's a bit embarrassing that I seem to know it better than you, isn't it?)

I side with Russell. Good on him for speaking out!


Its an american and jewish tradition. Around europe its not done as much.


The bible does say u are suppose to circumsize... I dnt kno what bible he reads but obviously nt the real one. Also on a side note boys do need to be circumsized bc of infections. My sister in law decided nt to circumsize at birth with her kid. He ended up having so many problems with infections that the doctor recomended circumsition at 6! So if u wnt to chance it go ahead but kno as they grow older there may be problems and it may have to be done anyway.
