this is stupid because I don’t think Tori Spellings life in Beverly Hills has any connection to a village in Africa… she doesn’t have to worry about her son catching aids and ding! No one in that society is gonna have aids !! and most jewish people and the societies they live in are probably not gonna have aids… so it’s not the same argument for jews or rich ppl in america as the argument you’re making about people in a village in Africa

john (and others): Please note that HIV/AIDS does not discriminate on the basis of religion, socio-economic status, geographical location, gender, or sexual orientation.

If any valid reason exists for circumcision, trying to make the child’s genitalia look like the other kids at camp sure ain’t it. And, neither is , “That’s what Jews do.” Jews are technically supposed to marry other Jews, so how jewish can the kid really ever be?

Tori should start reading Questioning Circumcision: A Jewish Perspective by Ron Goldman. She needs some sense to be talked in to her. I know she is hung up on aesthetic issues, having grown up in Hollywood, but still….

So what was the followup to their discussion? Did they decide to have their boy circumcised or not?

I never understood the significance of circumcision as it applies to the bible. Why was it so important (in biblical days), for a male child to be circumcised? I got the impression that it was necessary in order to be a follower of Jesus/God, but why?If god created us, why didn’t he just leave the foreskin off to begin with?
