Muslim man loses high court bid to have sons circumcised

A devout Muslim has failed to persuade a high court judge to rule that his sons should be circumcised.

The man, who was born in Algeria but lives in England, argued that circumcision would be in accordance with his “Muslim practice and religious beliefs” – and in the youngsters’ best interests. But the boys’ mother, who grew up in Devon and is separated from their father, disagreed.

    Why all this hate towards circumcision?
    It’s how Americans spot each other on foreign nude beaches and in Swedish saunas.

      Some people are overly attached to things.

      How do you circumcise a whale?

        A fat American joke!
        OMG, that’s so funny!
        I have never heard a fat American joke before.

        How come Canadians don’t get circumcised?
        You will have to Google the punchline. 🙂

          ? No, just an old joke from grade 2.

    • My father, an Englishman, once was quite shocked to discover that North American men are usually circumcised. He questioned all his friends as to whether they’d had the snip. “Bob, you’re telling me you’re circumcised? He thought it was weird.

        I really like the aesthetic and it’s quite the conversation starter with most foreign women.

        Very rare ( uncircumcised ) in Toronto growing up in the sixties.

      I have never understood the Renaissance of the Foreskin myself. In my childhood, all/most Cabadian boys were circumcised. Whenever we saw a foreskin in the showers, it was always a British or Italian kid new to the country. Same thing in the USA. Then, around 40 years ago, people began saying it was”mutilation”. Research indicates that circumcised men contract fewer STDs, esp. AIDS. Oddly, “foreskin reconstruction” is a big deal these days, too.

      Frankly, it has always been my understanding that women prefer the look and experience of the circumcised penis over its uncut alternative. They certainly LOOK a lot “tidier” from this man’s perspective. But then, I can’t remember the brief moments during which I had a foreskin. 😉

    Why do your women sleep with such beasts? Is there some sort of genetic defect on the second X chromosome which accounts for this odd behaviour?

      Most women want to be “competently kept”.
      It’s the biological hardwiring baby!

        At least goats don’t do it willingly. There is dignity in resistance.

    Good ruling. Religion should never be an argument to hurt a child.

    Don’t expect the entertainment industry to say anything negative about Islam. Universal Studios have announced that they are opening a theme park in the United Arab Emirates. Yes liberal Hollywood likes that muslim and Chinese money.
