Circumcision isn't a purely religious practice...
Honestly, cut dicks creep me out. There is very clearly a very important part missing and the primary erogenous zones are gone. It's not a penis but a weird, deformed broomstick anymore.
Honestly, there's no possibility for me to tactful on this anymore. Read a book, take an anatomy class, if you think infants don't feel pain. Do some actual research instead of making petty sheep-like rationalizations to self-justify your culture of genital mutilation. The harm of circumcision is extensively documented. But psycho-social forces keep most from considering the unpleasant. If someone is circumcised, they're very unlikely to recognize the harm in it. That would make them a victim, irrecoverab ly, and western culture does not allow men to be victims. Or even yet, if circumcision is truly mutilation, that means there is something awfully wrong and horrid in this world that people would do such awful things to their children without cause. That's something I don't even want to believe but I don't blind myself.
Does this mean an end to Jewish mohels "sucking the soul into infants" by "sucking the blood" from their freshly circumcised penises (after swigging a little wine in between each suck)? I recently asked a young Jewish man what he thought of that practice; he thinks maybe, just maybe, the Jewish mohels are child molesters. What do you think?
...50 mil death...better change batteries in your calculator.
For the dumb assess who claim that if you believe in god your brainwashed well you got it a bit twisted there. Without faith there's no freedom because belief in god makes step out of the box and makes you think more about your life society community and the world. People misrepresent god but god is perfect and you have to try to understand your lord or else your a walking zombie....
pl do not forget jewish have same practice for boy as muslims.dont be one sided.
Religions want total control of peoples minds and bodies. The earlier in life the indoctrination begins, the better. Hence their outcries, and hence many of the comments here.It is such laudable court decisions that stand in religion's way. See Iran, Israel, former Yugoslavia for examples of what inevitably happens if religion gains power. Watch out, USA!The last time a religion was in power in Germany - this time called naziism - led to 50+ million deaths.
I am very proud of this decision in my country.Nobody should be forced to believe in a particular religion.If somebody really wants to be a muslim, thats okay, but circumcision should not be allowed before a special age.The question now is which age ? Nonetheless it is a big step forward, that protects the human rights of infants and babys !!!
Fantastic and congrats to German court!!!Maybe some other rules to come as well? mmmmmmmmmChasing all muslims and other illegals out.....that would be awsome!
I'm a Muslim for uncircumsized power. I want uncircumsized power!
Silly people, don't you understand? Our children have no rights.No right to intact genitalia, no right to work, no right to a clean enviroment, no right to privacy, no right to hope or change and no right to a future.
so moraly illegal. After thousands of years of this by Jews and Moslems now it is not right? that ! is not right and intrusive by people in administration of goverment to impose; they are servants not lords to decree a ban on this personal religious observance.

NO country has ever of will ever belong to one people. I live in England and know that over the years this country has been invaded/ruled by Vikings/Romans/Anglo -Saxons to mention only a few...Precis ely right. They have been invaded. But usually the people who were invaded have been trying to defend themselves from being invaded by alien cultures. The state encouraged these defensive measures.Histori cally speaking everything is vice versa now and turned into its opposite.Nowaday s the (European) state encourages invasion against the will of most people, and polls show that at least in Germany, and does everything to fight those who are opposed to this agenda.Instead of fighting the invaders it is now the patriotic parts of the population who are being fought. The state turns against its own indigenous population and changes the demographics dramatically in the blink of an eye on a historical time scale.While most Germans are opposed to massive non-European immigration their voting behaviour does not reflect that. I think this state of affairs is only possible because of constant bombardment with egalitarian guilt-inducing propaganda such as the holocaust-cult or this ridiculous "unite against racism" campaign we're seeing now during the Euro 2012.I'm not sure whether this is a stable state of affairs in the long run, historically speaking. I doubt it.
Good. Circumcision should not be forced upon a person, and a kid doesn't have any choice. If they do not agree, they can move to Israel, Iran or any other place where it is allowed. Easy as that.

"a move which has angered Muslim and Jewish groups in the country."The n MUSLIMS AND JEWS can GET OUT. We don't need to tolerant barbarians. Go to your own countries. We don't need you and we certainly won't miss you
perfe ct example of the complete and utter IGNORANCE of the world today. Brian i think you should go to a library and read up on what ever country your from and the history of the people/cultures who have previously lived there. NO country has ever of will ever belong to one people. I live in England and know that over the years this country has been invaded/ruled by Vikings/Romans/Anglo -Saxons to mention only a few. also to call muslims and jews barbarians is a show of your intelligence, just because a person is 'muslim' or 'jewish' does not mean they are all the same. go an educate yourself my friend before its too late!!!
why are all you people so concerned about kid penis? it really is kinda creepy guys...
