I tried. I was going to let this abyssmal, ignorant post by donviti at Delawareliberal go by without comment. Really.
But there are just so many things wrong about An Awful Christian Ritual That Needs to Be Stopped from the man whose infantile rants are somehow treated as either real commentary or legitimate attempts at literary posturing by his co-bloggers, that I couldn't pass it by.
In this post donviti--who claims once to have been Catholic and should therefore know better--terms circumcision a Christian ritual, which it is not.
But watch him bristle should anyone point out his ignorance or suggest that some of his writings tend to be ... anti-Catholic.
In this post donviti--whose source of record is a blatantly anti-Semitic urban-rumor type post at the Daily Kos--passes off as true the myth that Jewish children are circumcised by an adult sucking on their penises.
Circumcision is a serious issue for a lot of folks, and there is a reasoned Libertarian case to be made against it as well as one that can be made for it. That case isn't made in a post where faux outrage and pretend moral superiority are substituted for ... pretty much anything.
Somebody seems to have had his forebrain trimmed back instead of his foreskin.
