A number of new developments on the foreskin front.  To cut costs, medicaid will no longer fund cutting penises.   San Fran Cut Ban examined.  Enjoy.

Ah well, the anti-circumcision protagonists are appealing to the general American public at its own level.  They've issued a comic book entitled Foreskin Man.  Enjoy.

The full series of illustrated panels is posted and rather well done.

OK folks, it's official: signed, sealed, notorized, sanforized, and delivered.


Circumcision cuts the AIDS risk in Africa by 76%.

(What is that "snip-snip" sound that I hear coming from the Global South?).


Let's expand the campaign with the slogan:


   Circumcize Jack; Not Jill.


Any other creative suggestions?


Since the CoE provides so much leadership in the UK, I would think that our fellow Anglicans in Great Albion would step forward on this one --- starting with the House of Lords (CoE bps. are ex officio members, btw).   OK, M'Lords, drop your knickers and grit your teeth; it only takes 30 seconds.  We have the Great Grand Mohel of the UK present for this noble cause.


Wherever did Rowan disappear to ?

Now that circumcision has been formally, medically recommended as greatly reducing the probability of contracting AIDS, wouldn't TEC's assistance to the Global South include the Anglican equivalent of a Mohel ?


Natch, we couldn't use the Hebrew term "mohel"; perhaps "Yankee Clipper" would be more in accord with our Anglo antecedents.

A man goes into a shop and tell the propietor that he wants to have his watch fixed.


The propeitor says," I am not a watchmaker, I am a Mohel."


"Why do you have a clock in your window?" Asked the customer.


"What am I SUPPOSED to have in my window?" asked the Mohel.

Dangerous?  Disgusting?  Bizarre?  What words spring to consciousness within your mind?

Funny thing is that an adult sucking on a child's penis is pedophilia, child abuse --- unless the adult is a mohel --- then it's a perfectly legal & honored tradition.  How utterly  bizarre.  What say you?

Dutch - Yeah the Muslims do. I should have been clearer and specific. My husband is from south south Asia (Sri Lanka) and is hindu. I don't think they practice circumcision and make sure they keep things clean.




The thing I most respect about Hindus is their remarkable level of tolerance.  They really do believe in "walk your own Dharma*Path; do no harm.  The two things that aggrivate Hindus are attempts to evangelize Hindus into a different faith and the carving out of Pakistan from the sub-continent in 1949 (or was it '48?).


I had an internet conversation with a Hindu gentleman in Sidney some time ago.  He stated that I'm really a Hindu but just don't realize it.  :)   I take that as a compliment.





Well yes Dutch you are Hindu and it's ok Just keep following your Dharma path.
