I’m all for male or female genital mutilation – provided that the person involved is the person who will have it done to him or herself, meaning that person is an adult, and not a baby of 8 days old or a girl still living at home.
If you’re an adult and are convinced cutting your foreskin off reduces your chances of getting an STD, or if you’re a woman and are bored with the pleasure of clitoral stimulation and orgasm, go ahead and do the stupid thing, by all means, help yourself. This is an age of suicide and self-mutilation, Planet Thanatos. We do it not only to our children and ourselves, we do it to our home, Mother Earth.
With all the talk of “freedom of religion” I had to get my Bible out and remind myself of some of the genocidal commandments of the Big Guy Up In the Sky.
Deuteronomy is a good place to look for the religious freedom to seek and destroy. It’s been cited for centuries and used to justify genocides against Indians in North and South America and against that towel-headed race currently occupying the world’s largest open-air prison, Gaza.
Consider this from Deuteronomy 7: 1-2:
When the Lord your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations . . . then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy.
Or this from the same book, but from 20: 10-17:
When you march up to attack a city, make its people an offer of peace. If they accept and open their gates, all the people in it shall be subject to forced labor and shall work for you. If they refuse to make peace and they engage you in battle, lay siege to that city. When the Lord your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it. As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves. . . . This is how you are to treat all the cities that are at a distance from you and do not belong to the nations nearby.
However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. Completely destroy them—the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites—as the Lord your God has commanded you.
If your cock were meant to be cut, Nature would have made you that way. Just as there is no need for Japanese to dye their naturally black and beautiful black hair blond, brown, red and purple, there is no need to traumatize baby boys with the superstitious practice of genital mutilation.
