New legislation now being proposed in the Massachusetts state legislature to ban circumcision of any male children, including Jewish children, comes very close to saying, "Yes, it should be a crime." Circumcision of infant males has been a requirement of Jewish faith and identity since the time of Abraham.

Meanwhile, just a year ago this week, two very powerful state legislators in Connecticut proposed a bill that would have had the government take over the finances of the Catholic Church. (It took a rally drawing thousands of folks to the state capitol to persuade them to withdraw the measure.)

How did we reach the point where powerful people seriously consider such outrageous intrusions on religious liberty? These "shots across the bow" are skirmishes in a larger war between a newly triumphant liberalism and older American values, including pluralism, conscience protection and respect for religious liberty

Circumcision of newborn boys has been a routine medical procedure for decades in the US. Most doctors think it's healthier.


I have one of those ex- coworkers (retiree) who is 50 something and resentful towards his parents because they had him circumsized as an infant. He believes sex would be better if he still had his foreskin. He actually didn't let the doctors perform the procedure on his sons, so that they would be able to have a better sex life than he had. I told him he needed to get counseling from a female, jewish therapist, to deal with his unhealthy fixation.
