American Samizdat

Tuesday, May 01, 2007. *
A divorced couple have gone to court to determine whether their son is to be circumcised following his father's conversion to Judaism. The former Medford [Oregon] man wants his 12-year-old son to undergo the minor surgical procedure, but the boy's mother opposes it. So far, Oregon courts have squarely sided with the father, who has custody.

[Article continues at link. I note that the father is faithful enough to want to mutilate his son's penis but when it comes to divorce, eh, that was just a wee bit inconvenient. Religion hardens hearts and softens minds. And don't forget our previous posts on super-magic-spell genital mutilation of the rabbi-biting-baby-penis variety.]
